Played the demo, kinda liked it, even though i'm not a huge RTS player/fan, but I couldn't pass this up. In for 1.

This game play as well as Red Alert 3 (PS3) did? That's been the only console RTS I've enjoyed playing in all the ones I've ever played. Civilization Revolution was also decent but everything else I've tried on consoles played like shit.


I've have RA3 (good) and LOTR-BFME (frustrating) on 360. I've only played the demo of Halo Wars and I got the feel that Halo Wars is the most console-RTS friendly game.

Any other opinions?

Done. And because I didn't get my credit for the MP3 download on my recent XBL purchase it came out to $24 and some change.

Buy everything! QUICK!

I'm double posting this question in hopes to get it answered quickly. I really want to jump on this deal before it is gone. Was in gamestop today and almost bought it used for more...

The ECA thread on CAG states that the current coupons will expire on 9/30? Does that mean the amazon promotion is over or that new codes will be posted. I don't want to drop the $20 to join for a little over a month.

Sorry again for asking in multiple places.

I suspect it means the current batch of codes Amazon gave them expire on 9/30 and there will be a period of time before the next batch are available. If last time is anything to go by it'll probably be a couple of weeks.

This is only my theory however.

Got it, ECA 10% code actually looked at regular price without lightning deal so you get to save even more. :D I got it for $32 (I live in WA, so I get taxes). Awesome deal!

Yeah, the ECA discount always goes off of Amazon's regular price and not Goldbox/Lightning deal prices. Nice little bonus.

If I don't care for Halo, but I like RTS games, will this be very enjoyable? Or will it require me to know all about Halo in order to understand any of it?

thx

Based on what I've read, even those not familiar with the Halo universe will enjoy this game.

It's a very basic RTS that works very well on a console. You won't get the in depth aspects you do from a PC RTS, but it'll get the job done on a console just fine. Knowing about Halo would help with the story, but it's in no way essentia;. The story ties into the universe, but it's not a direct sequel/prequel to the core Halo story.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I got a regular copy of Halo Wars but it came with a steel case at Gamecrazy for 23 bucks two days ago. Fun game.

You should've added it to your cart if you were on the fence about it. The Gold Box price will stay in effect for your cart so long as you don't delete it from there or until tonight Midnight PST.

Why don't you take a chill pill. You're the one who looks like a prick for not paying attention to the time....You snooze, you lose! I'll sell you mine though for the 63.98...a penny cheaper than amazon.
