"Essentially, Halo Wars plays just like it looks: flashy and exciting. It's what you would expect from Halo. If you're looking for some more "real" feeling, then maybe it's not for you. It's a fast-paced adventure, and an exciting addition to the Halo universe. It has a few annoyances, but what game doesn't? For the traditional RTS fan it might feel too watered down, but for everyone else you should be able to play – and enjoy – at your own level."
