First Halo Wars footage showing multiplayer gameplay from the Covenants perspective.
I'm not sure how an RTS will play on a console. However, we are talking about Ensemble and my AOE3 box is still somewhere in my room. :)
I used to think that too. But after playing End War it can be done.
I hope it doesnt turn out like Supreme Commander on 360... i bought that game when it came out. Compared to the PC version it sucked. I returned it the next day and got Halo 1 and food.
I'm interested to see how this game turns out. No, not because I'm a huge Halo fan (I jumped that ship not long after Halo 2 came out), but because I'm a huge RTS fan and I think every gamer (even console gamers) deserve to experience this very fun and rewarding genre. Yeah, it might be awhile before console gamers get to experience more sophisticated titles like Sins of a Solar Empire, Dawn of War, or a TRUE version of Supreme Commander, but you gotta start somewhere...
Speaking of Sins of the Solar Empire. It's $19.99 on your nearest Target. It's limited time price cut though.
It is possible. But as the RTS genre is not the most used on consoles developers really don't have any where to turn to for inspiration to how to make it easy. But i really think that as said before End War did it well. And i really hope that they've done a good job with this title too.
I'm sure Halo Wars will not turn out the same because it's Ensemble. :)
I only played the end war demo and whilst the voice gimmick was fun,yet slower than pad inputs,I really didn't like it,guess I've been spoiled by the total war series
Halo Wars,, be prepared to get raped by StormRise.
I really hope you were trying to be funny.
there's a good chance it will be better,it's the first time the makers of total war have done what they do best on consoles,and thats the RTS genre.
I am not into RTS games traditionally, but there is something about this game that has grabbed my attention. Maybe its because its over 2 years ago it was announced I dont know, but for this game to be in production for as long as it has,then it better be amazing!
wow that was lame...it will still sell like hot cakes to the halo "stans" and with the great marketing...but, i don't think the game deserves all the attention its getting
i just loved the cut scenez from the demo- from facial detailz to sexy scientistz...ive never really played an RTS b4 (tried out EndWar but never got into it) but after looking at halo warz i think ill try it out. im not a halo fanboy or anything but halo warz lookz pretty good. looking forward to it definitely
WOW!!!! this really looks fun
Ensemble really has captured the halo feel for the game, everything from structures to vehicles feel very halo-esque. I'd love to play this game as an FPS-RPG-RTS game, starting out as a marine in that game, with some huge forces moving through the world, big battles with one team as unsc other humans playing as the covenant. It seems like they've found a good mix of strat and action to keep the pace moving quickly. good job ensemble.
the person who made this is my clan partner for halo wars :) and hes on my friends list.
lol if u think halo suxs what u doing on a halo tread lol u probably like it.
because all the Halo fans(including myself) will buy it. Unfortunately, a bunch of them will end up hating it because it is a strategy game, and most FPS fans aren't too into that genre. Personally, I like strategy games, so I'm willing to give this game a shot. I seriously doubt that anyone will ever make a great console RTS, though. Even Ensemble.
LEGIT. I can't wait for this game.
