It's an RTS but...
Works fine on console anyway! Become an UNSC commander and enjoy this great strategy game. Nice campaign and cool storyline!

For those like me who can't play Halo
There are actually unfortunate masses like me who can't play FPS games like Halo due to health reasons (getting dizzy easily is one of them). With this game, you can at least not be out of place and still be partially in the loop of the Haloverse (pun intended). The voice acting and the cinematics are beautiful, and the gameplay is easy to get on to. DLC is also available for this title for even more fun! Get it and you won't regret it!

For Halo fans!
I enjoyed this game as a straightforward strategy game for the 360 console. It is very easy to pick up and start playing, great for those new to RTS games. Real strategy fans might get a bit bored after a few plays though. I do think it is lacking a little bit in depth, ie there isn't a great deal of strategy involved on some of the levels, or in the online game modes. But overall it is a decent RTS game.

Great complementary piece to Halo universe, and fun RTS on 360
If you ever wondered what it would be like if Halo was an RTS game, think no further as there's now Halo Wars.

Taking an interesting story arc of the franchise, game simplifies what is traditionally complex and hard game to translate on a console control to bring what is accessible and fun RTS on a console that doesn't feel like it's a port from a PC version.

If you are a Halo universe fan, there's a lot to enjoy from presentation, music, to interesting precursor to Halo FPS series.
