    It’s an awesome game with great 3d graphics and sounds. It’s amazing how much gaming on console has change since original PlayStation and Xbox. This is a must buy game.

    As a HUGE fan of strategy games, this is one of the best! Collect resources, build support structures and achieve your objective. Whether in campaign mode or playing against your friends! This is the game for you!

    It was a fun game to start out the cinematic's are awesome but once you get into the core gameplay it can be a bit glitchy especially with large numbers of units. I wasn't a fan of the blitz game play mode.

    It's always hard with sequels to compete against the original however, Halo Wars 2 lives up to the hype. Keeping the same feel and love with improved mechanics it's a game all Halo fans will sure to love.

    The first Halo Wars was fun and interesting. Age of Empires style game set in Halo universe on a console. This time out, it's a part of the current story. Still really fun, haven't played any of the online modes.

    I have had the game for a couple of weeks and I am having fun. There are plenty of different types of games to play and the campaign is pretty good too. If you liked the first Halo wars you will like this game.

    Really like the online multiplayer, if you liked command and conquer or the 1st halo wars then you will love this game as well. The new leaders they keep introducing have crazy cool powers and abilities.

    this game is good but not great. If you loved the original Halo Wars than you will love this game. If you have never played Halo wars than maybe give this a rent before you buy. Its short and not great

    I'm a bigger fan of the normal HALO releases than the Wars, etc type games. This game is ok, but I find myself getting bored with it after a little bit, which is not what I look for in a game.

    If you liked the first halo wars, you will like halo wars 2. Same style as Starcraft, but utilizing the halo franchise. Over all the controls are easy to learn and the leader skills are a nice addition.

    Halo wars on XBOX 360 was a good, simple, and easy to learn RTS. This game builds on this and adds the speed and graphics for a game like this. I am not a fan of RTS games, but I must say this is well done.

    If you like RTS this is fun. There are not much choices on the console. They just added some more levels this week. I do like the game and enjoy the multiplayer. The different teams all have weakness.

    If you enjoyed Halo Wars you will love Halo Wars 2. The added blitz modes and rumble are awesome for quick battles, but they still have regular mode where you can take time and build up for a long battle.

    Good game for fans of the Halo series. Playing strategy games with a controller is still a task, but this game gets a pass as it has all the halo-rific cutscenes and units we all love.

    I have always been a halo fan this is not as good as the original halo wars but the graphics are far advanced the gameplay is easier too. I would recommend this to any halo fan of fans of rts games.

    My son loves this game. We have 2 controllers. However, only one can play. A lot of other games are designed to allow 2 players. Not this game. Wish I knew.

    If you are a fan of the first game, then you will like this one. It may take some getting used to but it is still fun. Campaign is kind of short but some missions are hard so it balances out.

    Third-person, aerial view where you have to direct actions of robots/troops against incoming enemies. Really, really, dull. Seemed more like an adulterated version of the old "Missile Command"

    Got it from Black Friday sale, nice price and arrived on time. It's still wrapped and under the Christmas tree so I am giving it a four star only but hopefully my son will like it.

    We need more rps's and this is a good start. The new card playing mode adds some depth to the game. Campaign is good and the graphics are better. Over all a great game. Recommend this one.
