Story was there, production wasn't
I'm attempting to give the most unbiased review that my soul will allow to to write. I love the Halo universe and looked forward to finally being shown the fate of the crew of the Spirit of Fire. For this I was not disappointed. However everything I loved about Halo Wars the fine folks at 343 once took a dump on it. For what I played it for, which was for the story, I enjoyed it. The cut screens were very nicely done and didn't just "drop off" or end awkwardly like they did in Halo 5, they actually told a story with is nice. But I have to ask 343 why they decided to completely change the look, sound, personalities of the main characters ??? Were the original voice actors unavailable? Did they even try? Doesn't seem like it. The game is very distracting because the whole time Captain Cutter is suppose to be the one talking to you and giving you orders but I kept getting lost thinking it was Spartan Jermone. Then I discovered they used the same voice actor for the Cutter as they did for Jermone in HW1. So I guess 343 did try to find the original cast, except complete switched it up on us and hoped nobody would care. The characters even look different. The Professor, who had a clear Asian ancestry is now a white woman in this game. And Cutter looks younger than he did before ? So upset and disappointed in the controls as well. The way building and units are upgraded are completely different and honestly I get why, they gotta keep it fresh, but I did not enjoy it at all. Just my opinion. I hope this does well enough that they continue with the story. But come on 343 you have been in charge of 3 games now and you have let me down every time.
