Halo Wars had no problem selling a lot of games , despite not truly being a particularly great or good game (imo) .

If 343's Halo fails , its on them .

I respectfully disagree. I have a friend of mine that is buying a 360 this weekend (his first console) just because of Halo Wars.

Halo Wars is one of the best examples of an RTS that works on consoles. The campaign was solid with a very good storyline and the multiplayer was excellent. Halo Wars is one of my favorite 360 games to date and a welcome breath of fresh air to the constant bombardment of FPS that this gen seems to endlessly throw at us.

I hope we get a sequel to this game someday.

fair enough . I just also feel otherwise . I'll never say it was just a cash in, as some thought and polish obviously went behind it ... but i felt it was quite lacking . Stuff like RUSE were obviously released later on , so learned a bit from the experience , but felt better imo .

To be fair i was never a fan of Ensemble studios' Age of empire series on pc as well , wich explains a lot .

HUGE shoes to fill MS.. also, it doesnt look good to try and make excuses this far out.

"Halo games will be 'scrutinised differently' without Bungie"

Pffft, no it won't. Not unless the game turns out not as good.

Are some of you aware Frank has been apart of Halo with Bungie since the beginning along with other developer and programmers?
