    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.

    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.

    An high value RTS that has some flaws

    I'd rate Halo Wars 2 as a buy after the first price drop. It's got a great mix of content for RTS veterans and RTS newcomers alike. Storywise, Halo Wars 2 seems a bit too brief of a campaign, but the missions are extremely varied in a way that rivals Starcraft, and the cutscenes are some best looking cutscenes I've ever seen in gaming. Multiplayerwise, Halo Wars 2 really shines as you have a great mix of Online Co-Op, verses, and Firefight modes, coupled with offline Skirmish modes against AI. Blitz is a fun game mode for quick games, but the pay to win microtransactions in that mode are going to really prevent a lot of people from playing on an even footing. (I'd stick to blitz firefight in that regard, as it cuts the pay to win element out entirely) If you love Halo and RTS, defintely buy it at launch. If you aren't quite sold, wait until you can get the ultimate edition at a better price. 343 has a good track record of post-launch support off of Halo 5, (Free maps, tendency to listen to the community for post-launch features and updates) and as good as this game is at the moment, it will be a great addition to your game collection in 6 months when the post-launch DLC campaign, maps, and leaders arrive.

    Amazing game

    My very first RTS ( Real Time Strategy ) game was Halo Wars. I went into that game not knowing anything about it, and not even knowing if I would like it at all, but as it turns out I absolutely LOVED it. So Halo Wars 2 was a no brainer to me, it was a day one buy. If you know what an RTS is and have experience in this genre of games then you know what to expect here. Base building, troop development, land and air, vehicle & armor , weapon development etc etc etc............ then of course moving troops and etc from one place to the other to complete the objectives of the game . Sounds simple and boring? LOL, it's not, you will have multiple things happening at once, not all the time but it will happen, you may have troops engaging a target and more somewhere else engaging some enemy somewhere else and then your base comes under attack and you have to mange what is happening there as well. . Don't think this will be to much to handle for you, the game is set up in a way that you can quickly move from one engagement to the other very very quickly and seamlessly. Most RTS games will be found on PC, and few have been developed for Console, but the way the game has been tailored for controller control instead of mouse and keyboard it's absolutely outstanding. the controls are simple and easy to remember and understand, allowing quick response for what ever situation you find yourself in during the game. Story - The Game begins as the crew from The Spirit of Fire awaken from cryo sleep due to a distress signal from an instillation called the ARK. Upon deploying a Spartan team to the Ark to investigate the signal, the team encounters the Atriox, a Brute that has risen through the trials of war to become the most brutal and fierce leader of a rebel covenant faction. It is now up to you to stop this terrible threat and save the galaxy and the human race. . This game will also impact the Halo 6 story line, which is very interesting because the original Halo Wars had no impact at all on the games that came after it. I love this idea and upon playing the upcoming Halo 6 title I will remember and be able to reflect on what happened during Halo Wars 2, and why the things happening in Halo 6 are happening . Halo Wars was a game that was set in the Halo universe but had nothing to do with the main line Halo titles and the Master Chief, and that's not the case with this game and the upcoming Halo 6 main line installment. . What a great idea, I absolutely love it and absolutely cannot wait for the inevitable Halo 6 release in 2018. Graphics - Absolutely gorgeous, detail everywhere, you know you are playing a Halo game, there is no doubt. The cut scenes are absolutely AMAZING, and the original Halo Wars was no slouch in this department either, but DANG they are beautiful in this title, and just help immerse you into this game and the Halo universe. Voice Acting - The cast in this game are top notch as you would expect from a AAA game release. There are a few characters throughout the campaign that are better than others, but that's to be expected just like any other game or movie, but over all the voice acting is exceptional to further your game immersion. Sound - If you have played past main line Halo titles you will be right at home here, from the sounds of gunfire to the pop of plasma grenades, it's all here. The Scorpion tanks, Warthogs and all Covenant vehicles sound absolutely great and just like they should and are definitely what you remember. Also just like all Halo titles this entry has an excellent orchestral sound track that's just puts you into the Halo universe and keeps you there, simply amazing. . Conclusion - This is an AMAZING title for everyone not just the Halo fan base, there is just so much fun to be had here. In my opinion this game is well worth the purchase price, and I urge everyone to pick it up. Solid 5 out of 5
