    Well personally I liked this game, especially the cutscenes that looked absolutely beautiful. However, I found it unchallenging. For instance, just making 30 marine squads could get the job done nicely.

    i want a new age of empires, not a new game that is not good

    I'm a Halo fan and an RTS fan. Don't feel like lookin up whoever posted that you can't be both, but I'm the proof you can :P.

    you cant say This game sucks.. 1. this the first Halo game not made by Bungie 2. It's just a side game not part of the Halo Franchise 3.It's an RTS not a FPS all the little fanboys saying it sucks its because its not for you 4. The game isn't really a Halo!! Its a (bleep)en' part zero - meaning its not to be a big time game only a before part 1 thing 5. Its not about the halo 1, 2, or 3 its about the first war with the covenant!!!

    this gamewas quite possilbly the worst RTS ever. (asside from goblin comander). that being said, i enjoyed the beautiful cutscenes. its really the only reason to play the game

    Amatarasu, you are correct in saying Bungie most certainly not need to make the strategy game of the year, probably why Ensemble made it. Anyways, I myself picked it up for 2 reasons: Mythic map pack and an introduction to RTS's and I feel it served that purpose rather well. I myself would have given it maybe an 8 but then again, I am fairly new at RTS's and dont have much to compare it to, but I would recommend this to anyone like me looking for a bridge into this genre. reCAPTCHA: old cloth

    wow a halo game with a score under 9
  • Coolbeans69 - March 9, 2009 11:11 p.m.

    @ Muchomexicano halo's age isn't over yet. R u kidding? We still have f@#$ing halo 4 to look forward to and Halo Wars wasn't THAT bad. A 7 is still good and a lot of people liked halo wars
  • unhappymatt1 - March 6, 2009 5:27 p.m.

    I bought it and I like it. I don't let reviewers tell me what I should like.

    oh and Amatarasu I wasnt aware that playing Halo qualified you as being mentally retarded good god you sound like a jackass
  • Amatarasu - March 4, 2009 4:24 a.m.

    it doesn't have to be good for stratagy,it's a HALO game,it's appealing to HALO fans,and HALO fans don't use stratagy,HALO fans rush in headfirst,they don't corner the enemy,they rush in,sure a true rts fan would be pissed off at this,but bungie dosen't need to make the strategy game of the year for people who arn't useualy the ones who use stratagy

    hm, don't know if i'd agree fully with you on this one. however many of your points are very true. i especially love how the game really feels like a halo game and also how well done the online is. i probably would have given it an 8 or 9 but 7 is still good. well done.
  • oryandymackie - March 1, 2009 5:35 p.m.

    yeah, the whole idea of Halo is ruined in this game. And "Unoriginal", no offence but, where have you been the last few months?
  • Daywalkr - February 28, 2009 2:56 p.m.

    I still might rent it. Lol
  • Spybreak8 - February 27, 2009 10:22 a.m.

    Hmmm, I felt the controls worked very well, I play most of my RTSes on PC as well, and I'm really in for the story campaign. The game feels very halo-y so I wouldn't say its a sell out with the Halo name. The demo reminded me of BFME and I loved BFME. Have you seen the cutscenes, they look amazing, top notch quality! If there are framerate issues this can be fixed later on with a patch, that's what happened to Univere at War:Earth Assault. I can't wait for the game and since I can't play Halo 3 online I'm not grabbing the LE. I am getting the flame warthog from amazon from preordering it however, (free bonus).
