My impressions so far on Halo Wars is mixed. On the one hand I love Halo and they could sucker me in on just about anything with that name on it and I will give it a try. I have played thru about 6 of the missions so far and my favorite parts are the cut scenes which add to the earlier Halo story.
As for the bad I think I have confirmed to myself I just really donít like RTS very much. Oh I get a kick out of seeing the UNSC units, especially the Spartans, running around beating on tanks and warthogs running over troops. But even with the slimmed down RTS experience I just donít have my attention held like other games and often will play a couple missions and then put it down. Then later on I seem to always find a excuse not to pick it up again, heck I had more fun finishing 50 Cent Blood in the Sand
I canít see myself purchasing this, even renting it was kinda meh. I thought it was funny the other day I eavesdropped on a conversation between a Gamestop employee and a customer where the employee was making sure that the customer knew that this was not a first person shooter and a RTS. Wonder if they had any disappointed kids come back to complain?
I hope this isnít a trend of whoring out the Halo series after the Bungie days, yeah Iíll pick up ODST but after that I wonder whats nextÖ Halo Cart Racing?
