Product Description

Halo Wars is a strategy game based on the legendary Halo universe. In campaign mode, players will command the armies of the UNSC warship "Spirit of Fire," consisting of familiar and new UNSC units in its initial encounters against the Covenant, an alien coalition threatening to obliterate mankind.

With the guidance of Serina, a spirited A.I. persona, gamers will direct legions of UNSC soldiers, Warthogs, Scorpions and more, each group having its own strengths and uses in battle. Adventurous commanders can also call upon ancient Forerunner technology, if they are fortunate enough to find it hidden throughout the battlefield.

Covenant forces are also waiting for players to lead them into battle in multiplayer skirmishes via the New Xbox Experience. Call upon an arsenal of new and familiar Covenant units such as Grunts, Elites, Ghosts and even Scarabs to defeat foes on the battlefield. Strategic-minded players who react well under pressure will emerge victorious.

  • New take on a legendary world: Experience the early battles between the UNSC and Covenant, in a time predating the original Halo. Join the crew aboard the Spirit of Fire, a Phoenix-class colony ship converted for UNSC military use, and guided by the A.I. persona Serina. Discover an ancient artifact during a journey to the planet Harvest, the first planet to be attacked by the Covenant. And then get ready for the wars.
  • Strategic command of armies in large-scale combat: Gamers are in command of the battlefield, playing as either of two unique civilisations: UNSC or Covenant. Counter and crush your opponent by tactically fielding the superior army. Choose among leaders possessing elite skills that can turn the tide of battle. Use various combinations of leaders and units, and create countless strategies tailored to your preferred playing styles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Okay so RTS don't work for consoles 10 Aug 2010
By E Kelly

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay so RTS' don't work for consoles. The limited number of buttons on a gamepad will never be a match for the hundreds of combinations of a keyboard. Having said that Halo Wars works surprisingly well.
It does a good job of a tricky situation running fluently and fast. The best bit of Halo Wars is you can play all your favourite characters and factions that you know and love. A small annoyance is the rather short campaign length however its Multiplayer offer unlimited hours of fun after the Singleplayer is exhausted.

A definite must have for Halo fans and RTS fans alike. A-grade game

5.0 out of 5 stars One of teh best console RTS 11 Jan 2012
By T.Heard
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is quite an older RTS available on the xbox 360 but it still has to be one of the best. If your a fan of C&C and other RTS games then you will love this.

One of the things I like about halo Wars is its a lot more simplistic to master the controls and building of units which in the heat of battle saves a lot of fustration. Unlike C&C I found that to be a little fiddley in the midst of battle.

Halo wars allows you to chose between i think 6 army types, 3 good guys and 3 from the bad guys, each having its own unique abillities and leader powers, so take time to understand what each does and how it affects in game play.

There is a very strong single player campaign crossing both Spartans and Convenant so a good mix of being good and bad ;) and then there is Skirmish mode which you can play alone against AI, co-op or against other online (be warned there are some hardened ruthless players out there as I have found out) I tend to practice on Skirmish against AI, moving from easy up to the harder difficulty levels, more to get a feel for what units do, strategy types before venturing online. playing against friends can be fun, swearing alligence before turing on them when they least expect it ;0) - Then there are various online v's modes (with the classics version you get *free DLC *this depends if its a new or second hand copy so you may need to check, but failing that you can download via XBL for a small fee)

All in all a very well polished game, great graphics, easy to master (there are 2 tutorial modes to start you off)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, great story, great challenge. 25 July 2011
By Jack W
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Where to start with Halo Wars. I guess the best place to start is with the story itself. The story is not the best quality of the game, but it is interesting, with good action, dialogue and it even makes sense. We also see the Prophet of Regret and a new arbiter as an interesting adversary. My favorate feature about the campaign is every level is not the same build and destroy. Infact, there are some missions where you don't have a base at all and must go with what you got. The flood is in the game too, unfortunatly not as a playable force.

The music in the game is brilliant. It still retains the beauty of it's predecesors. The sounds too sounds great. Especially when there is a large battle. it's also not so loud that it muffles anything either.

The best quality of Halo Wars however is the online. This pits 2 teams of up to 3 players against each other. You choose your faction and your character before you start. Choosing the right hero is important as they all have different features such as Cutter being able to spawn ODSTs and Elephants or taking direct control of the arbiter and shred enemy units. The community is still about 10,000 strong too so finding a game is easy.

This game is an RTS made for consoles and if you like and halo and RTS then this is not a game to miss!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Deal 8 July 2011
By Daniel
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Amazing price for the game, good campaign length and offline/Online skirmishes for good replay ability. You get both DLC packs as well. which if bought on the XBL Marketplace would cost you another 10pounds and add more game types and maps to give even more game play hours. Worth buying.
