console rts just isn't a good combination in my experience

unless you do a lot to make it controller/system friendly

Halo Wars is actually a console RTS done right, though its dumbed down a lot, its still a excellent game!

I'm guessing if you're not a big fan of the Halo series, you might not have as much as fun, but I still think the game stands on its own.

I had never played any Halo besides a couple of matches from the Halo 3/Crackdown Beta and I really enjoyed Halo Wars. As others have said, it's no Starcraft, but it was fun on its own. Heck, it made me actually a little interested in the Halo universe. I'm still not a midnight-launch-for-Reach type person as I'm just not that into FPS games, but Halo Wars at least showed me that there is a bit of interesting fiction surrounding the Halo series.

This thread convinced me to bid on a regular version of Halo Wars on Ebay. I've been wanting this game for a long time and my local best buy is always sold out of these great deals. So anyway, I went ahead and bid $10 for the game. I lost the auction because the game sold for 20...wtf?

Good game... and it's true: Good RTS games can be made on consoles.

This game and some Wii games has proven that:

  • :360: Halo Wars
  • :wii: Little King's Story
  • :wii: Dawn of Discovery
  • :wii: Wii Play Control Pikmin

This is one of those rare cases when I'd actually want the Platinum Hits version. I already have the game, but I'd double dip for the DLC.

My backlog is bigger than your collection.

Is this a nation wide sale? & does the game need to have some sticker or something saying its $9.99. Wouldn't mind picking this up for $10.

None of my local BB's seem to have any non-PH's in stock, and their website doesn't either (save for the used ones). This is definitely YMMV.

I'm gonna check out my local Best Buy tomorrow and hopefully get this. I just got Reach, but I think I can use a little more Halo in my life.

If anyone finds an extra copy of this and wants to hook me up with one in trade for my Reach DLC codes (Bonus Spartan Recon Helmet, UA Multi-Threat MJOLNIR Mark 5V B Armor) shoot me a PM. Wars is the only Halo game I'm missing, and now I'm getting the itch to play it.

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.

The stores that I shop in (BB, FM, WM) are in discount bin limbo.
Their stock hasn't moved in a long time.

Good thing that I found deep discount. They've had some really good
