That Gaming Site writes: "When your goal is to turn a system selling franchise that prides itself on being one of the innovators of the first person shooter into a real time strategy title that infamously has a low success rate on home consoles, you're setting yourself one hell of a task and it is one Ensemble Studios appear to be more than equipped to handle.
After all anyone who might be cautious of such a genre transition should be aware of Ensemble Studios back catalogue. Comprised almost entirely of the entire Age of Empire series, another franchise that some would say was an innovator to the RTS genre. Still, when asked to name a few RTS games developed for the home console that wouldn't benefit from mouse and keyboard, we struggle to rattle off a generous list. But that may change, from what we've played, we're more than pleased with how Halo Wars has turned out"
