Halo Wars is slowly dropping further and further (holding out for sub-fiver territory myself) and now, thanks to Zavvi, you can pick up a copy for just £6.95, which'll save you just under a quid on nearest rival ShopTo.
Ensemble Studios did a pretty sturdy job with this one and I was pleasantly surprised to see just how well it worked on a console, the keyboard and mouse being the obvious choice for any RTS fan. But, largely due to the fact that it was designed from the ground up for the Xbox, it manages to hold its own, sacrificing a little tactical depth for mainstream accessibility.
Genre fans might well moan, but those looking for an alternative take on the Halo franchise would do well to give it a look, especially at this price. Plus the relative lack of resource management means that it's a lot easier to just jump into the fray and get stuck in...which is hardly a bad thing when you have Spartans on the ground!
Put your hands together for whizzkid over at HUKD for this one.
