Halo Wars Intial Impressions

Yesterday Bungie revealed a new title to go with the Halo franchise and it comes in the form of an RTS.

Sadly the trailer wasn't in real time, but CGI. Even so, after watching the short trailer Microsoft had to distribute three employees to go through the X06 speech hall and push everyone's lower jaw up.

How come we can't have one ps3 article without someone mocking cgi, even if its a gameplay video, but no one cares about this?

Could it be that people know that concept trailers are important from an art direction standpoint and for creating hype(which entails more game sales), but are willing to overlook that fact to bash the opposition?

Anyways, this looks like its gonna be good. I hope it comes to the pc so I can play with a mouse and keyboard and not a controller.

i think ppl make a big deal when the cgi is on a console because they wanna see what the ps3 and 360 can do. i dont have a problem with cgi as long as the game is fun, thats what should matter

PS360WII6468d ago

Yes this was only cg. Furthermore a whole slew of game trailers on marketplace for upcoming games had nothing but cg. So case in point why is it okay for ms to do it but not okay for sony?

But yeah consept looks good. I can see where they are heading and hopefully they can incorporate the controller for a nice console rts

silent ninja6468d ago

they's nothing wrong with showing cg. but in the case of sony they INTENTIONLY lied at e3 05 with killzone saying it was in-game when it wasn't.
so thats why whenever sony shows something like cgi trailers theys always doubt

IT was obvious this was cgi and not gameplay...it's an rts game! It's when you show cg and call it gameplay that you should cal them on it.

Gameplay is #1 with Xbox games. We know cgi isn't the selling point of Xbox games. Is that simple enough for you. When i see an cut scene on a Xbox game i know the games not half movie and half game. For the most part MS is trying to keep the story telling-cgi as close to the real gameplay as possible and often the cut-scenes and cgi are matched if not dam close to the real deal. 2.1 i agree the other team uses cgi as an tactic and doubles as story telling it's just the way the Japanese like it and that carried over to the American market.

The Halo Wars Formula Has Potential to Fit More Microsoft Franchises

Halo Wars is still widely considered one of the best and most accessible RTS games around, and that formula could work with other Microsoft IPs.

I think Crackdown would fit in a more turn-based tactics system via Xcom then a RTS type game play. Being able to customize multiple agents, deploying that group in an crime infested urban zone, going against other super powered enemy and fodder type thugs. The potential for that is huge if they won't do another successful, ground breaking, GOTY open world outing like Crackdown 3....

P_Bomb458d ago

I could see that. I feel like State of Decay could spin-off into something strategic as well.

Actually that would be kind of fly if they made it a turn base RTS.

Crackdown tactics would be legit!!

Halo CE over Halo Infinite anyday

Not to mention the impact it had at the time

Flawlessmic767d ago

Halo 3 at the top is correct the only thing id change is swap infinite and halo ce around.

AuraAbjure767d ago

Halo 4 best campaign and multiplayer. Halo 3 best story.

ChubbyBlade766d ago

Are you trying to give people cancer?

AuraAbjure765d ago (Edited 765d ago )

Halo 4 has the hottest Cortana too which explains why the MC is the hardest in that campaign and why H4's multiplayer is the illest. Chief ain't afraid to take on teleporting enemies that can one hit melee kill.

I feel like I see these articles often. Either way, just going by main titles as a whole package not just on MP I’d say;
Best 2,3,1,4,5 worst.
Story only;
Best 1,2,3,4,5 worst.
MP only
Best 2,3,5,1,4 worst.

Popsicle1043d ago (Edited 1043d ago )

Great list Deathdeliverer! The only place we differ is that I would put Halo 3 MP over Halo 2 MP, but gaming preferences are subjective and there are really no right or wrong answers. We match exactly on everything else. And yes, these list are made all the time, but they still get me to click on them. Lol!

Deathdeliverer1043d ago

I was really torn between the two so I’ll call it a toss up. They are head and shoulders above the other Halo Mps. It’s Halo 2/3 (in any order) then a pause, then the rest.
