Halo Wars 2 builds on its predecessor with solid mechanics, diverse gameplay, and a fun new approach to a strategy game type.
Excited to see that people think the game is solid. I'll definitely need to check it out.
It's an easy jumping-in point for someone new to RTS and an enjoyable game for those experienced in the genre.
More people need to play RTS games. Most will say its not their type of game... I used to think that but was lucky to have friends who have played Command and Conquer back in the day. Its one of the best gaming genres. im glad Halo Wars makes it easy to get into, because It can be too much to handle in the beginning.
A definite improvement on the original. And Blitz mode is a blast!
I've heard that it's a good, frenetic game type.
Yeah it's great to see a console RTS be successful for once. Think the last time such a thing happened that I enjoyed was the old Army Men RTS on the PS2.
Although I have issues with the unit cap, I think keeping the armies small helps to force the game in that more strategic direction in some ways.
Holy cow! I forgot that Army Men RTS existed. I spent a lot of hours playing that game.
Last gen had Halo Wars 1 and Middle Earth which I remember being good.
I never actually played Middle Earth. I love LotR, though, so I may have to go back and revisit it.
There is a great LoTR mod for Total War:Attila that's worth checking out if you have a PC.
I've always had a tough time getting into RTSs. This seems a bit more accessible though. It's also cool to see how this game builds on the Halo lore.
That's the bridge for me. The Halo lore would cover over some of the issues I think playing on a gamepad would present.
I do enjoy all of the stories we get out of the Halo universe.
I really need to get into an RTS
This is an easy one to get into.
I honestly forgot this one was coming out, rarely seen nay marketing for it.
They oddly only decided to ramp it up in the last week or so. A lot of targeted YouTube and social media stuff.
Yeah, they didn't say much until last week, but they're all about it, now!
I loved the first game, this seems like an upgrade of that. Good looks!
Yes, it's a big improvement on the original.
