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.
Summary: Would've been better as a PC game but that's not to say that it's not good. The campaign is fun and still has the Halo feel even though it's an RTS. Online multiplayer is fun too. The Xbox controls work but it would be much better with a mouse and keyboard.
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.
