WAY better than I thought it would be!!!
When this game first came out it received pretty bad scores all across the board. When the price came down, I decided to pick it up and I should not have waited so long to buy this game. It looks pretty good. Other RTS games I have played on the 360 like Universe at War suffer from frame rate issues. This game is not very deep for an RTS games, but it is still fun, and the becuase it is a rather simple RTS game the controls are streamlined and easy to use. I enjoyed this game both as a Halo fan and as a RTS fan. I hope they make sequel. If they do I will not wait so long next time to buy it, and pay less attention to the reviews.

Halo Wars (Platinum Hits) + Bonus
Great game. Awesome storyline and a bonus included. When you buy the Platinum Hits Ed, you receive inside, codes for the Strategic Options Pack and Historical Battle Map Pack game add-ons. Very easy to use controls and extremely fun online options. It's a must buy for your Halo game collection.

Play HALO RTS with your X360
The last game from the great ENSEMBLE Studios. Easy to get into but hard to put down once you mastered to control the units. Fun and fast gameplay with cool effects and units. Really a great game for HALO fans.
