Summary: Halo: Spartan Assault is a frustrating experience because it’s so close to being a really good game at first blush. It looks like Halo, it sounds like Halo, and the twin-stick shooter scheme lends itself to Halo’s “30 seconds of fun, over and over again” gameplay.
Excerpt: Taking place sometime between March 2553 and July 2557, Halo: Spartan Assault puts you in the role of a Spartan-IV on the first mission of the Spartan Ops programme during the Battle of Draetheus V, the start of the second war between the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) and the alien Covenant.
Summary: Microsoft leans on a familiar friend with 'Halo: Spartan Assault,' originally a mobile and Windows 8 release. As a top-down, twin-stick shooter, it's not the 'Halo' anyone is waiting for, but it is an excuse to revisit the sights and sounds of a franchise known, no matter the view, for its vibrant...
Conclusion: A solid port of its mobile and PC counterparts, Halo: Spartan Assault is an enjoyable twin-stick shooter that provides little in the way of real longevity or value for money. Still, if you've nothing else left to play on Xbox One, you could do a lot worse.

Summary: I thought that Spartan Assault would be a great addition to the Halo universe while expanding the audience with a new genre. In the end the short campaign, lack of storyline, and ease of gameplay make this a tough sell. I enjoy dual stick shooters like this, so I did enjoy my time with the game.
Pros: Halo controls work well, Recreates Halo universe faithfully, Challenges reward with extra points
Cons: Short playthrough time, Sparse environments, Could have added more depth to the lore
