A Taste of a Halo Wars Battle

Halo Wars moderator Thunder updated the official Halo Wars forums with a bit of news and a taste of what battles in the Halo-themed RTS will be like when it releases. The ever-so-slight news is that the July 6 monthly update will have some more game details and that July will also see the relaunching of the Halo Wars website which will include a new look and "something cool going on the side as well." Hit the jump for Thunder's description of his Halo Wars match against programmer Rob Fermier. (Xbox 360)

My estimations of this game arn't high...
It's a good idea to get a RTS to ride in the wake of the hugely successful Halo series, I don't think this game will live up to is FPS counterpart though, which is a solid, well made FPS. On the other hand though, the quality should atleast transfer over, so RTS fans can likely expect a high level of quality out of the game; but I don't see it competing with other huge RTS installments. All my humble opinion, little has been revealed, and much remains to be seen. My estimations are admitedly losely based in reality.

much ado over nothing
so far all we've seen is a pre-rendered cinematic trailer. just because it's "Halo" doesn't mean it's gonna be good. e.g., Halo and Halo 2 on PC suck. Microsoft/Bungie need to put more effort into porting Halo over to PC... but I don't they really care.

I'm not underestimating this game
Keep in mind that this game is being developed by Ensemble Studios. They develop the Age of Empires series, which is the best selling RTS. The devs there are HUGE Halo fans and they have focused a lot of effort on bring the RTS experience to a console controller. I am a developer in Dallas (not in the gaming industry) and I work with a former Ensemble Studios employee, who still stays in touch with some of the devs there.

I personally can't wait to play this!!! I also expect it to move some consoles for Microsoft. There are a lot of AoE fans out there that might pick up a 360 just to play this.
