RTS found a place on consoles after all!
Skilled RTS players might be thinking Halo Wars lacks in some areas since it's a lot simpler as some PC RTS like Command and Conquer or Warcraft.
But it was the developpers intetion to create a simplified RTS that can be played on a console and they DID deliver!
You'll get 8-10 hours out of campagne, which can also be played with a friend via online co-op where you share 1 base but every player has it's own ressources and troops.
Where the game really shines is multiplayer. I already got hours of fun out of it by playing 2vs2 or 3vs3 matches. It's always more challenging and fun playing against real people than some AI.

Overall, i've already played for over 250 hours and no sign of boredom so far. Get this game, get 2 friends and kick some ass online!

Nice RTS for Consoles
... and it's HALO!

Awesome cutscenes, serviceable story, atrocious and cliche characters.

Skirmish missions are loads of fun!
