This game will redefine the RTS on consoles Its looking like another HUGE year for the 360 in 2009
RTS is for the pc
hence the reason this game will redefine the genre on a console platform
RTS can't work on consoles, they have to make allowances for the controller, so the game either becomes shallow due to lack of options or overly complicated due to too many options. It's the only genre that needs a mouse and keyboard.
This game will not revolutionize anything except for milking its main franchise just as Nintendo does w/ Mario. The game you are referring to that will revolutionize console RTS is Tom Clancy's EndWar because of the Mic Support. Dragging analog sticks to move < Mouse + Clicking
RTS is for the pc FULL STOP you need a mouse and keyboard
I am NOT attacking you, I'm just asking. Why will it redefine the RTS genre on consoles?
i thought this game would have better graphics but i was wrong.
The gamer zone was meant for gamers not trolls, I guess I was wrong.
That's why he has to label you as a troll. What's funny is that you only need to see his post history to see how much he trolls and rambles about how much better he thinks the 360 is when compared to other systems. Don't bother explaining yourself, Icewake, we know who you side with. Edit: lol at the disagrees, I guess Icewake is a pretty neutral person and whoever thinks this video doesn't look that good *must* be a liar. Inevitable Starcraft 2 versus Halo Wars comparisons be damned!
Woah some people have got too much time and fanboyism to side with a games console..who actually cares in real life? Will they ever read your comments? Will Sony? Nope.Will Microsoft? Nope.Will Nintendo? Nope. Grow up and just play the game on whatever games console has it. You wont know how good graphically a game is until you've seen it on your own tv. Be a Gamer not a Rater (made that up on the spot)
I don't see this game selling beyond the fact that it has HALO written in the box. I wonder how many people will buy this game thinking it's another FPS.
I never really was into RTS and I dont think this will make me love them any better. But this is cool for the people who like Rts and have a XBOX360. Im of to another thread with my MAX SPEED!!!
I don't don't think they showed enough in the video, but from what I've seen, it looks good.
It doesn't look that good in terms of graphics and gameplay. Hell, the first shots of Halo Wars that came out looked much better, much more things on screen (in terms of quantity and variety), were they bullshots or what? Anyway I hope this does turn out to be a true successor to Age of Empires 3 and not just a lame attempt at turning Halo into something other than a FPS. How sad that Microsoft is dismantling this studio even though they were the ones that probably forced them to make a Halo game. Anyway, at least they are not competing directly with Blizzard since Starcraft 2 could destroy this game in the critical acclaim department, at least from what we've seen and whoever denies it has blind love for all things Microsoft/Halo. As for sales though, this will probably sell a lot just for being Halo, but again, if Starcraft 2 was out on consoles, it would probably beat Halo Wars the same way COD4 beat Halo 3 in terms of online play and sales on both platforms (however, the games would still sell less than FPS since RTS is not as popular in consoles).
From music to light and shadows I think Halo Wars might actually turn out nice indeed. 2009 is looking so solid for 360 already and with games looking like this it's no wonder people are picking up the better console for 200 dollars less. 360 all the way baby and for those hating go play your PS3 while we continue to enjoy the best games have to offer right here right now on 360 and 360 only.
M U S T B U Y !

The only game that will redefine rts on consoles is Endwar everything else just seems like a badly controlled pc port including halo wars.
lets try and be realistic here.... "redefine the rts for consoles"? are you kidding me... sigh....oh and about the "HUGE" year for the 360 in 09. you mind listing those games thats going to make it a "huge" year. oh im sorry..."ANOTHER huge year".... so far this year, the games that it's been getting are average....literally, go check metacritic since i know you 360 fanboys love to use it. ninja gaiden 2 is the only game that even averages in the low 80's. while the ps3 had something like 4 or 5 exclusives all averaging 80's and one in the "tripple aaa" status. oh and alittle off topic but for all the fanboys who love using metacritic, i would be careful because come oct 21, i dont think you guys will want to bring it up too much longer because like you say..."you can't argue with facts"
...Well the graphics are good... the gameplay looks good... But Overall it's kinda Crap for the type of the game... and why bother with this game when Starcraft II comes out soon..????
Lets just say from "My Own Opinion", which means absolutely nothing, I will always play an RTS with a Keyboard and Mouse. I will never buy a RTS using a controller. I like deep and complex RTS games, and console will tend to be much less deep and complex, so I won't play them. This game is looking good if you want an RTS on a console though.
Looks very very average. Very average.
I think it looked decent, not a first day buy in my book but a definate by sometime or later. i think its cool how we can finally see what covenant buildings and bases would look like. This game has great potential, they need put the starcraft feel to it then would sell like hotcakes
Looks decent, but their earlier work of Age of Empires looks way better than this. They aren't showing much gameplay and usually thats not a good sign, but you never know til a game actually hits. @omega It won't "revolutionize" anything, I don't think they would shut down a studio after releasing a could be "revolutionizing" game. Just commen sense. I heard that some of them are going off to form another company which is good because they had some good games.
RTS already works on consoles. Just check out The Lord of the Rings RTS. I expect wonders for this game.
this sh!t suck
