I have always been a huge Halo fan. I have every Halo game ever made including the first Halo Wars. I really like the first one and I was not disappointed by the sequel. Being able to finally play this highly anticipated game was very enjoyable for me and even better than I had hoped. It is an amazing addition to the Halo series and a nice variation when you want something other than a shooter. I would definitely recommend this game to both new and old Halo fans and especially to anyone who likes strategy games. It also came with a limited edition figure that not only looked pretty cool but was valued at almost $30 so that was just an added bonus of getting it at Best Buy. See the attached photos to view the figure.
This review is for Halo Wars 2.
Still a great game to me but I'm a huge fan of the first Halo Wars. I remember hoping and wishing they would make a part 2. The original company had split and said there would probably be "no more Wars" -- I was floored when they said a new one was in the making.
I'm a strategic game person. I love em -- building structures and commanding troops-- and Halo Wars is it for me. The realistic SFX and little touches visually makes this game awesome to me. A good "sight for sore eyes" if you tired of first person shooters that's flooding and ruining the gaming market. Every game is the same just a different skin. We need variety. We've got to stop supporting this monopoly and demand choices for the kind of money these games and consoles cost!
Halo (not Halo Wars) was actually one of the original fps games on a console. 13 or so years later and we're still playing first person shooters? Rediculous.
I gave it 4 stars because there are only 8 boards in Skirmish mode, but I'm sure there'll be more to purchase in DLC's. And only 12 missions in Campaign mode. But otherwise, would've been 5 stars from me!!
