Halo: Spartan Assault Review – More Spirit Than Substance | Game Insider

Game Insider: "After eight iterations of the franchise on the Xbox and Xbox 360 consoles, the Halo universe makes it leap to the small screen with Halo: Spartan Assault in attempt to bring a halo-like experience to tablet gamers while promoting Microsoft Windows 8 touch devices. How does it fare? Terribly, if you make direct comparisons to its console brethren. However, for what it is – a $7 tablet, top down, third-person shooter – it works rather well, lacking the intimacy and depth of the console titles, but exuding so much of what makes Halo, well, Halo." (Halo: Spartan Assault, Mobile, PC) 8.0/10

Playing it on my Surface RT

Looks and plays really well. Defo has the Halp essence.

Agreed. The game absolutely nails the sights, sounds and ambiance of Halo.
