It is terrible. It is one of the most watered down RTS games I have ever played, obviously made for casual gamers, and Halo fanboys.

Dude that was pretty harsh. And you don't even have to play it to know it's:

1. For 360
2. Not a hardcore RTS.
3. Halo

So maybe try to be a bit nicer eh ;)

i havnt tried it. not a big rts fan personally. i read a review that said the campaign is pretty much a tutorial for the online aspect, which is much funner. im thinking about trying it out because one of my buddies is super impressed with it and probably needs to get his arse handed to him online

ps - i love being called a console fag and a fanboy for being a gamer who plays any good game regardless of platform. i banana dance on your elitist attitude. leave your holy wars at the door you er.

I don't think I will be picking this game up. Not really a fan of RTS.

Haha I dont get whats so bad, Im just saying its a terrible game. Not sure why your taking such offense to my comment towards Microsoft's and Bungie's excuse to milk the Halo series for as long as they can.

We all know if they made a Halo 4, it would be the top selling game of 2009.

Haha probably. I waited outside Futureshop for the release of Halo 3. I probably only played it for around 10 hours or so, there was just something about having it! I played the original Halo ALOT, and it was really fun over XBC. Halo 2 I played somewhat, but not as much, and then barley played the 3rd. They just got really old FAST.

I wont be in line again for 4, but I will probably rent it to see what its about, since it is Halo after all. As for Halo Wars, I like RTS games to actually need some form of strategy, Halo Wars is more like a RT, just Real Time.

Hmm, well I dont have hope for seeing a halo 4 though. Microsoft said Halo Wars was going to be the last halo game.

Halo 3 still rules online to this day though. Next to COD4.
