Halo Wars | Standard
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jun 8, 2009

Set in the Halo Universe, Halo Wars is a Xbox 360 game that follows up on the sucessful Halo series of games. Developed as a real-time strategy game instead of the normal shooter game, Halo wars lets the players build armies and bases, harvest resources and defend themselves. With single-player, multiplayer, co-op and Xbox live play options, Halo Wars is a good option for a social game, and in some sorts is a glorified game of rock-paper-scissors. Ground vehicles beat infantry, infantry beat aircraft, and aircraft beat ground vehicles. Throw in special abilities, and customizable hero units and the game is complete. Since it was specially designed from the ground up for the Xbox 360 console, the game takes full advantage of the controller setup and delivers a game that syncs well with the player. Features Real-Time Strategy Single-player Multiplayer Co-op Xbox Live Base building and resource harvesting Designed with Xbox ... PROS: (1) Great cinematics (2) Gets the Halo feel down perfect (menus, sound, etc) (3) Easy to understand upgrade paths (4) Jacking vehicles with Spartans is great (5) Leader abilities allow for people to excel if they want to micromanage ... CONS: (1) Camera doesnt go back far enough (2) No Covenant campaign (3) Not developed by bungie (4) not enough upgradeable stuff (5) gets boring fast

Halo Wars is for Beginners
1 Star Review   By anonymous - Jul 31, 2013   

I didn't even want to give it a star. If you're a first time RTS user, then this is for you. Everyone can win by rushing with basic units. It's incredibly easy and although the campaign is cool, the multiplayer is severely lacking. I've played Command and Conquer for year, and Halo Wars did not even come close to that level of gameplay. If I played as the Brute Chief and did a one vs one, I won in 16:08 every single time. This game is fun for the first bit, then it quickly fades away and becomes boring. Now I haven't played it since it came out, if they've added more complexity to it, good. But when I played it, it wasn't even worth one star.
