Halo Wars is a made by Ensemble Studios, and is the latest game in the award winning Halo series. It is a prequel and set before the events in the original Halo. The reason why this game stands out, other than the name, is the decision to swap genres. Halo wars is a Real Time Strategy game (RTS)...

The game

Halo Wars came out at the end of February and is the forth game under the Halo name. The first three games were excellent first person shooters, but here Microsoft have played on the brand name to produce a game that otherwise would have disappeared into obscurity before it was even produced. And...

Very 'do this, do that', Quite limited in campaign

I bought this game on the day of arrival, special edition and all. I had played the demo and it enticed me hugely. However, I was quite disappointed when I finally got round to owning this piece of software. The gameplay itself follows Red Alert and general Command and Conquer games, with an...

its on the Xbox360, halo, fun, teamwork,

need a bit of work on multiplayer

To all those people out there who have a Xbox360, i really recommend either buying or getting the demo of halo wars. This game really pushes you to the limits of whether you are a good leader, or if you can work independantly striking the defense when they are at there lowest. If you have played...

“Halo Wars Preview”

published 18/06/2008

A twist on the regular Halo Series

May be disappointing

I honestly cannot wait for this game to come out. Halo Wars is a real time strategy game, much like the infamous Command & Conquer games made by Electronic Arts. Many of my friends are avid fans of C&C and are simply wetting themselves, waiting for this game to come out. Personally, I think real...

Halo has been a dominant force in the FPS genre for many years and in 2009 they took the rather large step into RTS gaming. Developed by Ensemble Studios instead of Bugie, Halo Wars is set some years prior to the fall of Reach and can therefore justify the delicious numbers of Spartan soldiers...

Halo wars is one of my favourite and probably most played games in my massive stash. For me it dominates over the other strategy games such as command and conquer and epitomises to me what a good strategy game should be. Firstly, the controls. The controls on Halo wars are easy to get the hang of...

Like it or not, the Halo franchise has become one of the most popular and influencial shooters of all time. It has spawned a rich universe that can be the set up for a number of stories or gameplay types. The best example of this diversity is Halo Wars. Halo Wars is set 20 years before Halo:...

When first playing this game, I couldn't believe it! Ensemble Studios had managed to do the impossible and create a strategic Halo game! The story takes place during the Fall Of Reach! The Spartan program is in full action and the ship you are in find a Covenant force deep in Space and this one...
