Halo Wars

A Halo RTS game is to be released for the Xbox 360 and the PC based on the Bungie's hit game series Halo: Combat Evolved...who didn't see this coming?

At first the thoughts of a Halo RTS game made it seem like Microsoft is trying to milk Halo for all its worth but than I say the trailer and it looks pretty good. I have to say it alone makes me want to get Halo Wars. No release date has been given as far as I know.

I'm a little skeptical of a Halo strategy game....

But I remain optimistic about it.

As long as it doesn't become a dynasty warriors crap or something...

hmm going back to its roots, you know Halo was orgininally a RTS game made for the PC but was transported to Xbox as a FPS

As long as they don't copy another RTS game point for point just with Halo characters it should be good.

Interesting notion, not that surprising really. We'll see how it's executed.

should be pretty cool though, i love RTS, should be nice playin with covenants and Chief, however its going to have a massively hard time to come near to the quality and sales of C&C 3 and Supreme commander, which are prob the big daddies of strategy gaming on their way

Nah, Halo Wars won't have that hard of a time. You forget about those hardcore Halo fans that will get it in a heart beat.

Dont quote me on this but I think I read somewhere that the people behind Ages Of Empire will be making Halo Wars. If thats true then this game will be worth getting.

NOTE: I was right

Just for 360. That was my error.

A CGI cinematic does not truly reflect how the game will truly look like. Look at World in Conflict. They released a hell of a kick ass CGI trailer but the actual game looked nothing like the initial declaration trailer they released. I belive that the same could be said about the C&C3 trailer.

Yes but the people making Halo Wars also made Ages of Empire. I'm pretty sure they can make it a great RTS game...that is unless they do a Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds and just replace everything with Halo stuff.

The fact that its being made the AoE team is actually what concerns me a bit. They have had thier wonderful successes with Age of Empires II no doubt (which is my personal favourite), but when AoE III came out I was so horribly dissapointed. Hopefully they can pull off a large dose of innovation in this game as I see that as a vital saving grace for the team.

1. I'm a Halo fan. I'll get this in a heartbeat whether it sucks or not.

2. The CGI movie does not = the game, but it does set a nice mood--did anyone else drool when they saw the Elite? I mean I slay thousands upon thousands of Elites...diss them for their disadvantages in multiplayer...and yet I see them in the trailer and all of a sudden I wish I wasn't that poor UNSC marine.

3. Supposed 360 exclusive ya.

4. AOE team working on it is a plus, but does not equal success; however chances are good. Which leads us to the best thing...

5. Since it's another company handling the game that leaves Bungie to work on Halo 3 without worries. Yay.
