Product Details:

Halo Wars is a real-time action strategy game for the Xbox 360 that allows the player to control large armies and to shrewdly direct them in realistic warfare. Set early in the iconic war between the Covenant and UNSC - made famous by the Halo FPS games - Halo Wars provides a new angle on the war while bringing new heroes to the battle.

    UNSC Cougar
  • Sometimes it's all about getting to the front line. The UNSC Cougar is a lightweight, fast and highly flexible armored vehicle. Although heavy armor fire will blow the Cougar away quite easily, this vehicle is highly effective holding off enemy armored vehicles while the slower armored ones are on transit. The Cougar had gained infamy in several urban tactical situations prior to the deployments in the war with the Covenant.

  • UNSC Supply Pad
  • Behind every good UNSC base is a series of good Supply Pads. Providing access to the underground assembly and storage areas, these pads are crucial to the smooth operation of any base. Providing everything from medical kits to full-sized Warthog engines, the crew of a well run supply pad knows that a working pad means a working base.

  • Covenant Air Artillery
  • Recently sighted behind several front line battles, it seems that the Covenant have developed an air based artillery unit. With no on board defenses, it can be very vulnerable if dealt with promptly. However, its heavy plasma mortar cannons can lay waste to an entire UNSC base quickly and it is therefore critical that we gain more field information on this vehicle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still holding strong! I purchased this game right when it came out. It was my first RTS so I had no idea what to do. I grew into loving it, sense it is basically the only well put together RTS for the Xbox. It is one of the best casual games to play if you have an hour to two hours to spare. The game shines with other party members. Makes it competitive with friends. I can not wait till Halo Wars is available on Xbox One. I use to play this game every day, glad I will be able to again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Proving That RTS Games Dont Work On Console Honestly, Halo Wars is not a terrible game. On Xbox though? It doesn't do the trick. Playing any RTS on console, like Command and Conquer, just doesn't work out for me. The controls are wonky, examining the map is a hassle. You're just better off getting a different RTS on PC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game, but know what you are buying! It is a great real time strategy game, especially for xbox360, but for all of those long loving halo fans, remember this is not your normal halo game, it is not an fps, it is still great though. Now the graphics for in game play are not very good, the bright colors are helpful to tell teams apart, but the cut scenes are fantastic! The story is fair not mindblowing, but not horrible. Multiplayer is fun, but the connections are not that great. Overall the game is great, but if I could add one thing it would be to add splitscreen multiplayer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing game for strategy not a Fps Amazing game for strategy not a Fps thats why people underrate the game so low, I used to own this game and would spend hours playing it and would always gain massive armies and would keep on stockpiling until there was no more resources left in the map then just completely slaughter the my enemy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FUN GAME THATS ACTION PACKED. Halo wars defintetly has a different feel of how a halo works. But that dosn't make it any less fun. I mainly like it because it added two of my favorite game types into a single game(Action & strategy). It was also agame that i could put in and just relaxe and play and have fun. Recemended for those that are just starting stratigy games. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not what people think it is A lot of people hate this game because it's just not a Halo FPS, but truth is, this game was probably the most popular strategy game in between 2005-2010, even though the game released in '08. First off, the campaign Game play is impeccable and puts titles like C&C to shame (at least for me). The skirmish mode allows you to invite friends from xbox live and play with AI at the same time, which leads to some insane engagements. Also, there are bonuses you can find which go into the game history section. This section allows you to learn all sorts of different kinds of events that happened in the time halo takes place in. Another thing, the multiplayer has something in it that very few RTS games have, a multiplayer campaign. How many games do you know that have that? And you know it's good when the sequel to this is the most popularly demanded RTS game in the history of gaming. It's too bad ensemble studios had to disband soon after the release of the game.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very great underestimated game Halo Wars is a very underestimated game. It is a very good game for those who want to play halo, but are only allowed to get rated t and below games. A great bargain for the price, and at my local Gamestop, I found a pre-owned game for $10.
