Great Mix

by Josh on 3/24/2009

Being a fan of the Halo series, and the RTS genre, a mix of both is genius. I admit I was a little wary about the fact an RTS was on the Xbox, but after playing it I quite like it. It's easy to command troops. The storyline was great, no two missions were like any of the others, making the storyline that much more interesting. The graphics were top notch. I was very impressed and glad I made this purchase. You can't go wrong! Read More

Fun game...Great Halo 3 maps

on 3/25/2009

Halo wars is fun and exciting. All of the cut scenes and story go well with the game play and how the missions play out. I really enjoyed the game when you get to use the Spartan units, they are cool. Overall the game is worth the money. If you play Live, the maps for Halo 3 are very well done and cool, especially the grifball map. Read More
