Fun but somewhat bare bones
13 April 2017 | by residentgrigoSee all my reviews

Strategy games had a touch life on consoles till the 360 came along and the prequel ended up being one of the better such games of its time. The sequels sure took a while and everything seems great at first. The basic idea for the plot is strong and could work as a standalone Halo film. The technology is very impressive too (the army size in the last level is staggering!) and the controls are very fluid. The campaign though proofs as surprisingly restrictive. You again only play as the humans and nothing happens in the story till the final cutscene. You don't even get to face the game's antagonist at ANY point, meaning that Halo 2 doesn't have the worst ending in the series anymore and Halo 5 doesn't have the worst plot too. Lol. The campaign is still fun enough and the multiplayer modes are solid too, even if I can't judge how balanced the new Blitz mode is. That one also relies on real money to buy new cards, which serve as your units. Halo and RTS fans should obviously get the game but I expect more from a sequel , so get the HD version of Halo Wars 1 first. 7,5/10
