Acegamez: "As with any of the Halo games, there is so much more that I could say about Halo Wars and so much that I haven't mentioned. I anguished over my scoring of the game because I'm sure that some people will think I'm being too generous - but as much as I tried, I could see no reason not to give it a ten. Halo Wars has it all; a varied campaign with a co-op mode, an engaging storyline and terrific cut scenes, a huge range of unit types with multiple upgrades, varied special abilities, a clever but simple base and resource management system, robust online skirmishes for up to six players, a sublime control system and totally authentic presentation that is so lovingly crafted in every respect that it simply couldn't be any better - there's just nothing here to criticise! Halo Wars is an absolute triumph, every bit as well designed and beautifully implemented as the Halo trilogy; the only real downside is that it's so addictive that you'll find it hard to tear yourself away. Finished the fight? Time to start another one!"
