I love RTS, but WWII? So boring.... Please make it support Kinect! I want to see what they can do with it in RTS setting.

Also, I wonder what made the developer conclude the following:

"DMD is mulling over the idea of bringing the game to other console platforms, but comments that Xbox 360 market has "stable" growth whereas the PlayStation market is "shrinking"."

The Playstation market isn't shrinking by any means. It's growing, just not as fast as the 360 right now, but this invariable will change back and forth.

Well ww2 is still a big thing to europe and poland where concentration camps killed millions. I agree its kind of played out in games but i understand why so many pick it to make games from. I also agree that xbl is way bigger than psn and easier for smaller games to get out on.

that this will be good then...

I'd rather MS make halo wars 2 instead of this game. But I keep an open mind and eye out on this game and see if it's worth a purchase.

There was an awesome C&C Generals mod that went down this line that I was following on moddb.com a while back.

This game looked the shit, like they promised Halo Wars was going to be. 90% completed and looking polished as hell Bungie got wind of it because it got popular. Acquired the "assets" as they call them and shut down the team under threat of lawsuit.

I wouldn't be surprised if the "port" heaps of what I feel they "stole" from this mod into a new Halo Wars if they do make one.

Halo Wars was the worst RTS I think I have played this gen. It had some much potential to be great as-well which makes it worse.

EDIT:

Entry level is probably the nicest description I ever heard for it. My summary for the game was build every building, buy every upgrade, build every unit until cap, sweep the map. Next match repeat. Very rarely did I see any sort of tactics in any online matches and skirmish was even more basic with the AI.

Funny I was in holiday in Indonesia and they sold all the FMV's from Halo Wars as a "Halo Movie" to the Indonesian speaking audience, they even put subtitles on it for them.

I thought halo wars was a good entry level RTS for people interest in the genre. To me it wasn't for people who play RTS's on PC. but it did help gamers who don't play on pc to help understand how to play RTS's without the resource management. Halo wars help my brother get into RTS's now he loves them. I liked the story behind the game which is the reason why I want another one

I usually play supreme comander with the mods on my pc as well as shogun 2

Honestly Halo Wars I thought was a very simplified RTS but if you did what you just said you would be wiped out in around 4-5 mins of the game. Considering I was top 10 with Prophet, Brute & Arbitor and top 20 with Anders, Forge and The Commander I know the best players don't build every unit they build 1-2 an depening on who you were playing whether you with Human v Humann, Cov v Cov or Human v Cov your stratgey had to be different,

Skirmish was a Rip off I got the AI to there highest difficulty and they would wipe you out in 3 mins if your not ready.

Halo Wars is one of my fav games this Gen and you think it's easy meet me online and I will show a thing or 2.

On Topic

I will wait to see more from this I hope they allow 4v4 online and support it for awhile.

LOL @ playing RTS on console.

Seriously why bother, RTS & MMORPG belong on PC, everything else console.

I remember playing Halo Wars and LOL'ed.
