Halo Wars - Home
A Halo Real Time Strategy game. Apparently from the same guy who made Age of Empires.
I personally don't understand the concept of a Halo RTS. It's just doesn't seem meant for it. But, we have it anyway, and for the most part, the pics look pretty sweet.
What are your thoughts?
halo as a strategy game?.. well i guess it would be a bad thing. but well when u think of halo u think of a first player shooter. if it became a strategy game i think it would look similar to star craft honestly. or something along those line.
as for playing it well, i guess it wouldn't be so different from all those other strategy games, i mean in essence they are all the same type of thing.
but i have to admit the cinematic pic look great. so that might make up for it. i wonder what the inplay graphic are goin to look like though.
I saw a trailer for it a few days ago and I must say the graphics are amazing. But changing it from a first person shooter to a strategy games, thats going to be an adjustment for some. Most halo fans just like shooting thats why they play it. Strategy games are about team work and avoiding conflict if possible. I know a few who will not be happy with it. I can't wait for it. It looks amazing and the story should be as well.
seen the pics n trailer n it looks good tho i wouldnt hold my breathe too much since no other game will ever reach the heights of starcraft again. this is like like tht game alien vs prederator RTS was release on consoles but not on the PC thus tht flopped. it might turn out tht way but who knows, maybe they'll prove the doubters wrong
Now, that's an interesting idea, though. While Halo Fans might be turned off at the idea of a non-FPS game, would you say that some RTS players who haven't play Halo, might jump on the Halo bandwagon?

I think Halo Wars is going to be like the 2nd Halo..ppl will go nuts over it than realize the new halo sux...thats my opinion
HALO its one of my fav games... :D
Im a big RTS games fan so this game is all welcome ^^
but for wut I saw in the trairler its for the xbox 360... I havent seen many if any RTS games for consoles... all I have to say is that I expect it to come out for the pc... Im still waiting for Halo 2 for the pc >.>
Ill will buy it.... for the graphic of the trailer... its gonna kickass XD
