Microsoft confirmed yesterday that the Halo Wars review embargo will lift on February 20 at 2.00pm GMT.
The industry has the reviewers over a barrel. And before the Sony fanboy twats start b1tching, this isn't a MS thing.
but bad for a game like Halo wars which looks bad even from the demo vids halo wars is being released at the same time as KZ2,fear 2 and SF4 you know its fate
Whatever the score is, it would be 10% higher if MS would allow for mouse support on the 360. DAMN YOU MS!
It's an RTS on a console that always equals suck no matter what system it's for. And I agree with P4KY. If they ever allowed for such support then it wouldn't suck so bad. But that is the main problem with the transition from PC to console is the lack of KB/Mouse. Which are a needed item when playing this genre of game.
i wonder how many people will buy because they see "halo" in the name? then, get home and find out it's an RTS.
probably the same amount of people who will buy KZ2 thinking it's a good game and then get home and find out it sucks. /drumroll Thank you, I'll be here all week. Remember to tip your waitress and I recommend trying the out the Sushi bar. Good night.
I'm a big fan of the Halo universe. I've read all the books and play the games. Unfortunately the newest game is an RTS, which almost always suck on consoles. I might just get it for the story, assuming it doesn't butcher the canon. Of course, if reviews are low, I might just find a summary on youtube.
LMAO at the fanboys that always bring KZ2 into the comments when it has nothing to do with the story. KZ2 will be better than Halo wars, 100% guaranteed, whether it sells more is a different issue. I can;t wait until all the threads start popping up about Halo wars and how bad it sucks, lol, and all you xbox fanboys are going to buy it just because it has "Halo" in the name hhaahahahahahahahaha. It's the next Too Human, Lair, Haze. Just face it.
It seems that in every article there's a PS3 fanboy saying that Killzone 2 is better than whatever game is being discussed. Occasionally there is a 360 fanboy who makes some remark about Killzone 2. I get it. The game will be great. Now stop talking about it in unrelated stories. And how can Killzone 2 be better than Halo Wars? They're completely different genres. I, for one, will probably get both.
will be interesting to see how this does. kinda feel the halo name will drive sales tbh even if its just an average rts. still don't believe rts can work well on a console despite c&c3 doing a gd job but that doesn't take away from the fact the pc version is better simply because you can use a m&k. not sure if they're bringing it out around the time as a sony big hitter to compete or just coincidence but they're obv two very different games. For my rts fix i think i'll be getting dow2 instead. Who knows though, perhaps this will turn out to be really really gd and may have to give it a purchase. my estimation will be that it'll get scores around the 8/10 mark and get put down for controls
I can tell you that if Ensemble had put the time in effort into making this a Game For Windows, then it would have been a buy for me. I know it probably wasn't their decision. Maybe if sales are poor enough the will realize that a port to PC was the way to go on this one.
i wonder if halo wars will sell more than K2? if it does it will be quite sad....for K2...and then sony will say we seem pleased..
If you believe that KZ2 even has a slight chance of outselling Halo Wars. Everybody here thought COD: WAW wouldn't sell because it's WW2 and not modern warfare and look were that got us! Same with Halo Wars. KZ2 sales should resemble the sales of Resistance 2. Probably even less considering that the holiday season is over and the original Killzone sucked as opposed to the original Resistance: FOM. R2 was improving upon a good thing while KZ2 is trying to fix something that is broken and prove itself. Lastly, take everything you read about Sony games on N4G with a grain of salt. There are negative previews for KZ2 on the internets that never get submitted because this site is like 90% weirdo Sony fanboys.
I mean, do you really care if Halo Wars sells better then Kill Zone 2? If it does it doesn't make it better. Halo just has a bigger fan base. Or, KZ2 isn't what the reviews say they were or vice verse. (and twist your mouth up all you want), but with the way reviews have been as of late. I don't understand how you guys truly get excited and personal with out playing the game. When it's not what it's cracked up to be get mad, turn around, and trust them with another review. Have we not learned yet? This is why I rent games at game fly play it for a few days and if I like it I'll get it for half the price. If not, ahhh well. Some of you have to stop being so personal its just business. On paper Halo Wars should sell better then KZ2. The Halo Universe has a bigger fan base and a heavy fan backing.
Unlike some you guys that are judging early. I am going to try it first and see if I will enjoy it. It's so easy to write a game off from it's looks. I could give less of a damn of when the review blahs will be lifted. I just want to play the game and see if it's even worth the time.
Alot of ps3 fanboys are crying over halo sucess Halo wars will smash every game on ps3
What else do you see in that fantasy world of yours?
Slightly puzzled how a lot of people on here think that a game from Ensemble is going to end as a turd.They do have some experience in this genre after all And of course not one of you will have played it to have even the slightest idea if it's working or not I think it's fair to say this could be a nice little stepping stone for the rts console genre - certainly from what has been disclosed and shown so far, Halo Wars could be refreshingly good
will suck. Nuff said. I'm just getting the LE so I can get some new maps ASAP. Just because I favor my 360 over my 600bucks box of electricity doesn't mean I'm gonna praise this crap game. MSFT shut them down for a freaking reason.
