Summary: It is a great real time strategy game, especially for xbox360, but for all of those long loving halo fans, remember this is not your normal halo game, it is not an fps, it is still great though. Now the graphics for in game play are not very good, the bright colors are helpful to tell teams apart, but the cut scenes are fantastic! The story is fair not mindblowing, but not horrible. Multiplayer is fun, but the connections are not that great.
Very enjoyable war game. Wherein you are the General. You get mad if lost.

Summary: This is the second disc I am ordering. The first one stopped working. The Game is like you are the General. You are given a number of credits as you occupy a territory. You decide what building to be built for your armory soldiers tanks and planes. Then get more territories. You have allies, Your enemy have allies too. You have to get rid of your enemy or the will get rid of you. You have to built your army fast to get to super weapons.
Summary: A lot of people hate this game because it's just not a Halo FPS, but truth is, this game was probably the most popular strategy game in between 2005-2010, even though the game released in '08. First off, the campaign Game play is impeccable and puts titles like C&C to shame (at least for me). The skirmish mode allows you to invite friends from xbox live and play with AI at the same time, which leads to some insane engagements.
Good for the HALO completist, Not So Much for the gamer..

Summary: I got this because I've worked thru the HALO series and again now with my sons and we wanted another to conquer. 1) this is not a shooter, like every other title. 2) It's only 1 player unless you use system link (more than one Xbox connected with a cable) or XBox Live. 3) IMO it's like playing a strategy game kind of like RISK, as a video game.
