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.
