Halo Wars is a real-time strategy game set in the universe of Microsoft's blockbuster first-person shooter series. The game was created specifically for Xbox 360 by Ensemble Studios, the developer behind the acclaimed Age of Empires and Age of Mythology series. The focus of the game is on combat and conquest, with resource management taking a backseat to battlefield tactics. Units, vehicles, and the supplies needed to keep them running are produced at different buildings on base. In most missions, players order down the buildings they need on the planet's surface in pods sent from an orbiting command ship. The game's control scheme revolves around large, contextual, circular menus, designed with the Xbox gamepad in mind. The D-pad can be used to jump quickly between important spots on the map and the face buttons are used to select units and give common commands.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for hardcore Halo fans I like Halo but I am nowhere near "hardcore" about the series. However after listening to Podcast Unlocked and hearing the praise that Ryan M gave it I decided to pick up a used copy at Gamestop and give it a try. The game itself is easy enough to play and learn, the levels can be challenging while others are a cake walk. The story does further the Halo story and adds another layer of depth to the ever growing Halo universe. If you're not really into Halo that's not a problem as this is a Real Time Strategy game not a Shooter. If you're looking for a game to relax with and enjoy some backward compatibility with your Xbox One this is a highly recommended game. If you find you don't like this game but you enjoy RTS I'm also recommending Xcom.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for fans of Starcraft The game at this point in time is obviously lacking in terms of graphics quality but the game is very fun to play with some friends. These days people aren't too active on the multiplayer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Old but still good I only bought this because of the sequel upcoming this year, but dang, I was surprised. After years the game looks very good and it's still very fun to play.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really only for fans of Halo If your a hardcore Halo fan, go buy this game right now. However, if your new to the series, just give this a pass. In terms of RTS games, this has a very simplified style of gameplay. It does work really well on the console though. The downside I felt was that there are only two sides you can play as, which reduced to replay value. Also the campaign only really draws you in if you already know the story of halo. A person new to the series will probably be rather bored/ confused.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best RTS for console I can never get bored of this game. You can play online against other players or just play against the computer. Wish they would come out with another sequel to this game.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent game I am a huge halo fan I own all of them and I disagree with anybody who says this is not a true halo.This game is great for RTS lovers and a great starter for those who want to try the genre also if your a halo fan I recommend it. All together I love this game and I think you will to.
