    Rinse and repeat

    Rinse and repeat is the best way to explain halo wars two. For me personally brings nothing new to the game series, basically just a continuation of halo wars one. They should continue focusing on master chief or side story of another character instead of wasting Time and resources on halo war.

    An RTS on a console?

    This is a pretty good RTS (real time strategy) game for being on a console. With that said, if you have never played an RTS game then you will enjoy HW2. The story line is good and the cut scenes have excellent graphics. PC veterans, however, will find this game rather limiting.

    I played the first one on 360 and had a great time with it. If you've played and enjoyed the first one, you'll do the same here. If you're looking for a super in-depth RTS to replace your favorite PC RTS, then you're not going to get that here. But still a great game for RTS and Halo fans alike!

    I love RTS games in general and had a lot of fun with the first halo wars. Halo wars 2 is a blast with new game modes and better over all game play in my opinion. I have not played much of the campaign yet mostly do to my addiction to the multiplayer. Worth the buy if you like RTS games!

    If you like the Halo series and liked the first Halo Wars, you'll probalby like it; but if you are a big RTS fan, you'll probably find this very lacking as an RTS. Very bare bones, and it's pretty short. Also gets knocked for a cliffhanger ending that you'll have to buy DLC to finish.

    A fantastic follow up to the original. Wish they would add mouse and keyboard support, would certainly make the game easier to complete on the harder difficulties. Great multiplayer when you can get a group of friends together. A must play for fans of any of the Halo games.

    Got this mostly for my son, but it ends up my wife is the one who loves it. She's big into Warcraft and all that and loves Halo so this was the best of both worlds. Know what you're getting before you buy, This is not a FPS like the normal Halo. It's still fun though

    Halo Wars 2 is certainly appreciated on a console that needs more exclusives. Honestly, I prefer to play RTS games on a PC as they can be frustrating to play with a controller but if that isn't an option for you this game is still worth checking out on the Xbox One.

    Good adaption of an RTS for a console

    Halo Wars 2 does a good job of adapting RTS controls to a controller. The gameplay has you commanding troops with a loose-rock-paper scissors format to take points and hold positions. It is a strong Halo story with beautiful cutscenes that expands the exisiting Halo lore.

    Purchased this game after playing the original. I enjoyed the improvements from the first and ease of gameplay. This isn’t one of those games that take a month to figure out. If you liked the original you should consider purchasing this game.

    Despite the title pf my review: this is a fairly solid game. I don't play RTS games at all, but since it's related to Halo and I have the 1st one I had to get this. Enjoyed it over all!

    I was a huge fan of the original Halo Wars, and this game blows it out of the water. I have had so much fun playing this game, and I still can't get over how much new content and game modes are in this game. Couldn't be more impressed with Halo Wars 2.

    Halo Wars 2 is very similar to the first in the way it plays. In-game graphics are good but not much of an upgrade. The cutscenes however are really good. There's just not enough of them. Overall it's a fun game especially playing with friends.

    Thought this would continue in the game's genre, but it's an arcade-type game (from the 80's) where you move little people through a map and fight bad guys while trying to build bases and save your people. Don't waste your money.

    This game is probably not the best pickup for the casual player but for RTS fans, this is a fun game using the Halo property. Purchased at a great price so it perfectly fits the amount of play we're likely to get out of it.

    I bought this for my son for a just because gift. I gave it to him and he turned it on and said it's awesome. The graphics are excellent, it fits very well into the Halo story and game play is exactly what you'd expect for a Halo game.

    I have played part of the campaign as well as skirmish against the AI. It's fun if you enjoy strategy games, but it's not like a first person shooter, if that's your preference. For example, I enjoy games like this and Starcraft.

    What can I say. I am a HALO fan and also love RTS's. This story just adds to the HALO universe and story. The game play is never dull and keeps you on your toes. I am terrible at reviews, but the bottom line is, I am having fun!

    Not what you’re expecting if you think it’s like typical halo games. Not my cup of tea, but for those who like a real time strategy game and like the halo concept/story then buy it.
