I'm sure Halo Wars is an excellent game , that seems be the general consensus . But when some one attacks a genre so close to my heart I gotta say something.
Dude not an attack. Ive always found RTs's to easy because of the fact that you hold off the intial attck. Sart building your army. Once you max the army yo attck and almost always win the mission with that one attack. Thats my experience with games like Starcraft, Dawn of War, C&C, Age Of empires etc. Even Empire Earth is a game that is a race to top tech level and then you'll win.
For me finally a game that relies entirely on strategy. That's why I am so hyped up after playing Halo Wars.
