[Highly rated reviewer]This game looks amazing, with good graphics, the introduction of the wolverine and the style of this game is just so good that it is easily worthy of 5 stars !!!!!!!!!

dont get if you only like fps gamesBy Swiftmetal (10 reviews) , 05 Feb 2013Good overall game was pleased with it but it only adds a little story for halo fans and is not really worth getting if you love the fps titles and have not played this game typed before because you will get board
Good stuff but if you're a Halo story lover you might want to read on...By a customer , 11 Nov 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideA pretty solid RTS game with a strong rock-paper-scissors mechanic throughout. The campaign however fails to deliver a particularly strong story line, the cut scenes between and introductions to missions providing most of the story elements and whilst the game play was entertaining this was it's biggest letdown. In terms of game mechanics the game is streets ahead of most console RTS games, the closest game I can think of is probably Civilization Revolutions (which is turn based)
Certain story elements ret-con the elements introduced during the Halo 1 campaign and subsequent story elements. Elements such as the introduction of the Flood and Sentinels in the campaign whilst making the game more diverse as far as combat elements go don't quite fit with the ending and the information gained in the Halo story. However once you successfully ignore these matters the fun of the game comes to the fore. Though I will say by the final mission the numerous time limits on missions became a little dull since they push you towards using rush tactics with all units en-mass with no real tactics to use.
Rock Paper ScissorsBy Lavaskajunkie (13 reviews) from Plymouth , 23 Oct 2012Fair game, a must for Halo fans, however the RTS elements are pretty much broken down to Rock Paper Scissors. Some missions have the compulsory time limits to make the game seem like it has an extra agenda but it still boils down to 'who builds the biggest army wins,' like most RTS.
