This review is from: Halo Wars Platinum Edition Xbox 360 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.
