GameSpot Review: Halo Wars 2

Oh dear. Seems to have split opinions. Can't say I'm surprised with a console built RTS. Still, not exactly many other options/competition.

I love RTS games and i want to give the game a try but it doesn't have a ton of depth and the limited controls on gamepad/PC is a turn off, not having a simple attack-move command for a RTS is extremely weird and Total Biscuits video on rebinding has lots of issues. If they fix a few of these things I'll definitely pick it up.

Because they even "love" the mediocre 343i FPS Halo games too.

Did you hear the review video?

I think they need to take the person who did this review and push her down the stairs.

Her conclusions are mirrors of her preconceptions. That is a very bad sign for anyone.

It's very much fox news horse sh1t.
