IGN AU Report's: Take Halo 3. Pause the game mid-combat. Now, pull the camera out of the back of Master Chief's skull and position it high above the battlefield. Resume play. That's Halo Wars - or at least, that's certainly the best way to describe how it looks – all the chaos of the far-future battlefield, the intricate animations, spectacular lighting effects, swarms of grunts and spiralling grenades – and there you are, with your cursor conducting the chaos and destruction like any good strategy gamer should.
