"Even if you're a big Halo fan, the concept of Halo Wars may leave a bad taste in your mouth. Understandable, if you've ever played RTS games on a console. Perhaps you found the interface cumbersome, the pace of the combat (and the reactions it asks of you) directly at odds with the flexibility of the controls. Perhaps you're thinking that things will be no different this time. But having seen gameplay in motion, we reckon Ensemble has finally cracked the RTS genre on console - Halo Wars is fast-paced and simple to control, and retains the feverish strategy that makes RTS games so addictive on PC."
