Is this game good?

Im a little behind with recent games at the moment and i've recently considered buying Halo Wars. I just don't know if its worth forking the money out for it (20) when i could buy something new for around 10 more.

Enlighten me please

If you like rts games and halo then this is a good game for you, if your more into other things then pick this game up when its cheaper.

If you ask me, it's a must buy. The game is simply awesome, however, if you don't know anyone with it I suggest waiting until it gets cheaper

Well its going for 14 on amazon and hmv at the mo.

Like you i was worried about this one, played the demo and thought itwas cool and easy to use (i do like halo :P), but i had forgotten about it until today when i was browsing.

I am considering getting this game also, I do not wish to play FPS, as most of the HALO franchise has been. Just today heard this was a RTS game.

If you'd like to try it out yourself here's a link to the demo

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-CA/ga...88ba?cid=SLink

If you're curious about what x360a thought of it here is the site's review

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/g...o-wars/review/

As for my opinion of the actual game. I have never actually played it but I did quite enjoy the demo, especially skirmish mode. From what I've been told it is apparently quite "weak" for an RTS but its supposed to be a good game for beginners to the genre and quite fun whether you're new to the genre or not.

I agree with this. If you're a huge RTS fan you might be disappointed but if you just like Halo or are new to RTS games then it might be good to pick up.

I'm not a huge RTS fan, used to play some back in the day but I do like Halo and my brother got this for his bithday since he loves RTS and I played the first 3 missions just now and it's not too bad.
