Choose to command either unique civilization, UNSC or Covenant, each with unique attributes and strategic characteristics. Ancient Forerunner technology can also be found to create unique units to gain an upper hand in battle
  • Since inception, Halo Wars was explicitly designed to cater to console gamers and bring to Xbox 360® a genre that has typically been played on the PC. Easily command and manage powerful armies, effortlessly control troops and incredible machines, engage in epic battles and expand your empire using an intuitive user interface. Halo Wars represents the true next-generation experience, combining a masterful control scheme using the Xbox 360 controller with the award-winning strategic gameplay only Ensemble Studios can provide

Halo Wars (Platinum Collection) + Bonus
Great game, awesome storyline and it comes with a bonus. Strategic Options pack and Historical Battle Map Pack game add-ons. I thought playing an RTS would be very hard without a Mouse-Keyboard pair, but it is very easy to control your units and build commands. A great addition to the Halo game line.

Surprisingly Good!
I am not really a fan of RTS titles but Halo War proved to be a pleasant surprise. The interface is very console friendly, the graphics are superb with no slowdown even when things get busy, and best of all the story mode is a pretty nice addition. Couple this with online coop and competitive multiplayer, and the budget price makes this a worthwhile purchase.

A successful RTS
Top interfaces with great maps and sensible menus. Halo Wars has great effects with a lovely orchestral score, delightful voice-acting which makes RTS fun again.

A must get for RTS and Halo fans.
