Halo wars is a strategy game that’s based on the legendary Halo universe and allows you command armies, strategise and direct legions of soldiers. The game offers a super selection of UNSC and Covenant forces and it easy to play once you get the hang of the controls. The storyline and cutscenes are worth every second and the missions offer quite a bit of variety.
Fans of the Halo universe will enjoying playing the game and all it has to offer but it doesn’t quite deliver enough on the strategy front to satisfy the more hardcore fans of that genre. Other down sides include limited multiplayer options and small maps and armies that unfortunately limit the battles to a degree.
However, the storyling and cutscenes, along with some great combat moments make this a worthy addition to any game cupboard. While it has its failings, the game will do what it says on the tin – entertain you for several excellent hours. Also, I can't find a cheaper price anywhere else so this is a total bargain for fans.
