Halo Wars is a strategy game based on the legendary Halo universe. In campaign mode, players will command the armies of the UNSC warship Spirit of Fire, consisting of familiar and new UNSC units in its initial encounters against the Covenant, an alien coalition threatening to obliterate mankind. Halo Wars will immerse gamers in an early period of the storied Halo universe, allowing them to experience events leading up to the first Halo title for Xbox. With the guidance of Serina, a spirited artificial intelligence (AI) persona, gamers will direct legions of UNSC soldiers, Warthogs, Scorpions and more, each group having its own strengths and uses in battle. Adventurous commanders can also call upon ancient Forerunner technology, if they are fortunate enough to find it hidden throughout the battlefield. Covenant forces are also waiting for players to lead them into battle in multiplayer skirmishes via the New Xbox Experience. Call upon an arsenal of new and familiar Covenant units such as Grunts, Elites, Ghosts and even Scarabs to defeat foes on the battlefield. Strategic-minded players who react well under pressure will emerge victorious. Created from the ground up for the Xbox 360 console and controller, Halo Wars is being developed by the veteran real-time strategy developer Ensemble Studios, the team responsible for the best-selling and critically acclaimed Age of Empires franchise on the PC. Halo Wars can be played online through the New Xbox Experience and the single-player campaign. Published by Microsoft Game Studios, Halo Wars is an exclusive title for the Xbox 360 video game system.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb Game

Pros: Wonderfully good controls for a gamepad RTS.
Surprisingly good singleplayer story.
GREAT Music
Quality skirmish mode.
Nothing but good to say about this game.

Cons: The game's framerate has problems at 1080p. I highly suggest trying it in 720p if this is an issue for the user.
It could really use unit group creation ala PC RTS.

Other Thoughts: If you can accept and enjoy playing RTS on a gamepad, this is a great game. Ensemble really did a wonderful job mapping all the essential functions of RTS on PC to a gamepad, with the sole exceptions of Custom Unit Groups.

Artistically, the game is a treat as well. Unit models are very accurate to the regular Halo games, and the new units added for this game mesh in perfectly with the universe. The music is top notch for atmospheric style.

And I will say the pre-rendered cutscenes are very, very good. And I normally do not enjoy pre-rendered stuff at all. The artists really outdid themselves.

I recommend any one that is curious to download the demo off of XBox Live Marketplace and see if they can stand playing this sort of game with a gamepad.
