Halo Wars Reviewed

Halo Wars is no Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, but it’s by far the best RTS ever developed for a console. Fans of the Halo series will adore the atmosphere (especially the stunning CGI cutscenes and music) and level of detail of the Halo universe, and casual gamers will appreciate the intuitiveness of the simple controls. On the downside, seasoned RTS players won’t find the amount of depth they’ve come to expect from a strategy game - it's impossible to lay out your buildings in an inventive manner, gather troops into groups or order them into simple formations – which cripples the game’s longevity. At least there’s the online multiplayer to keep you hooked where you can play as either UNSC or Covenant. Nonetheless, it’s an essential purchase for Halo fans looking for a break from a first-person shooter. @ ITreviewed
