Pop limit only 40? That's not good. Maybe the X360 can't handle more units.

 

 Is this a joke post????

LOL. If you have played it you would know that there is at points so many units on screen. It is a strategic move to make it a strategy RTS rather than the usual my armies bigger so I win.

Dont post unecessary post dude. :)


 

you know little about rts's.

 

Maybe he does, maybe he doesn't. Either way, he is enjoying the game immensly. Which is absolutely what video games are for.

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.

Oh damn, I need to add this to my Gamefly account.

Demo seemed pretty good, I am curious to know how it does in the full game.

 

@Barozi

Meaning no mining and such like I had to do in games like Warcraft and C&C?

Well you can gather boxes (resources) with every unit, but most of the time you don't need to do that, instead you get resources when you buy/upgrade supply pads in your base.

I'm definitely getting the game but i'm just debating on wether I should get the limited edition, I really want the mythic map pack but $80 is a lot of money for a poor college student :/

I bought the limited edition for $68.  Here is the link: http://www.buy.com/prod/halo-wars-limited-collector-s-edition/q/loc/108/210572492.html

warcraft 3 is perfectly banlanced and it has a max unit count of 100, that is strategic, 40 remains me of battle realms and thats not good

 

WC3 is very well balanced, but I wouldn't say it was perfectly balanced.  Besides they have had years to patch this game for balance issues, and they still release patches to update the game because of balance issues.  They also have a max supply of 100, w/ some exceptions.  You would only be able to get a max unit count of 100 by building only peasents, peons, acolytes, or wisps.



I just picked it up and can't wait to get out of work to play it. Is there a VGCHARTZ league or something for halo wars? If anyone is looking to play online hit me up elnino34 is my gamertag. I will be playing this exclusively for a while.

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.

 



Just played the campaign for a little over 2 hours, and I am impressed with how easy they made an RTS to play on a console. I've played LOTR, C&C, Red Alert on 360, etc and they were complicated for a non RTS person. A very enjoyable game
