All in all, Halo Wars is, in many ways, RTS simplified, but that's not always a bad thing. In the end though, with all the positives and the negatives, GamingIndians still come back to the initial question they asked, because the truth is that whilst Halo Wars is an enjoyable game standing by itself, how much you enjoy it will depend upon how much you love the series. For any Halo fanatic with even a passing interest in the RTS genre, this is a must buy. For RTS lovers on the 360 this is well worth the money. For everyone else, they suggest you try the demo first.
