Storyline

Halo Wars is a top down strategy game similar to Age of Empires in its gameplay. It's story is about a ship called the Spirit of Fire that is protecting one of the outer colonies when they follow a covenant ship that attacks the colony to a unknown planet, with a mysterious past. The story follows the characters Captian Cutter, the commander of the ship, professor Anders, the brainiac scientist, and sgt. forge, the sarcastic leader of the marine ground forces. In the game each character is a playable character in a leadership type roll. Each character has their own abilities and special units they can research and use. For example, sgt. Forge can make "Grizzleys" or super tanks. The campaign that takes about 20-30 years before the events on Reach is fun and has good replay value, you can collect skulls for use in "skirmish" local matches. The multiplayer is arguably what makes this game the most interesting. Besides Cutter, Forge, and Anders you can play as three covenant leaders. ... Written by jmburrage

Underrated
31 March 2017 | by caldroySee all my reviews

This Game is very underrated! i recommend playing it now. Even tho this game got some problems it is still a fantastic game. I recommend playing Halo wars 2 instead since it improved a lot of things. But i can think of some things that's not very good about this game, for an example the controls feel very weird since it is on console an the game fits more as an PC game.
