Halo Warz ?

Has anyone played Halo Wars? Although it's an XBox 360 console game I've heard it plays like a computer strategy Real Time Strategy (RTS).

I'm a huge Age of Empires/Kings/Conquerors fan and was wondering how this game compares since it was made by Ensemble Studios which also made the Age series games.

Speaking of Ages I found a great site where you can play Ages online and a few other older strategy games... IGZones.com it is set up like the old msn gaming zone. Pretty sweet.

Peace

It's getting good reviews but not quite high enough for me to purchase it since I already have a huge stash of games waiting to be played.

It's actually pretty awesome. I was skeptical, as I am about any console-based RTS. I like it quite a bit though. The game plays smoothly, the story for the campaign mode is awesome (with killer cutscenes that really set the story in motion).

I recommend it for sure.

It's a bit odd as it's on the console side of things, but, yeah, pretty good game with some pretty cool stuff.

I'm not typically a fan of the RTS genre, but this one is just so very well put together and filled with enough fluff to keep me entertained. I originally bought it to give to my nephew. He was going to get the game, I was going to get the extra goodies (Mythic maps for matchmaking in Halo 3). Turns out, after playing the game, I was pretty well hooked. I finished the storyline, got a ton of achievements and had a real nice time of it.

Not having a mouse to control the map would drive me nuts.

If it's any good it'll be released for Windows in six months, like every 360 game worth having. I can wait.

And people wonder why I don't own an XBox.

And it would undoubtedly be better with such a set, but I really don't think they could have done it better with a controller.

Unfortunately that means they have to make concessions in control, like making the cursor locked into the middle of the screen and building a base is unbelievably cookie cutter.

I think the main draw of this game is the story, and that it is Halo.

My interest died after halo 2, I'm still annoyed I bought that joke Halo 3, but many people are still completely into it.

If they did bring it to PC I doubt they'd change much, it'd be the same thing like with Unreal Tournament 3. A game that could have been much better but ultimately made too many sacrifices for a console market.
