POSITIVES: The making of a RTS on the 360 and combining it with Halo, could of been a bad idea, but in this case its the complete opposite. Graphics are amazingly beautiful. The whole control and style of the RTS is great. I like how they tried to impress Bungie with their creative timeline, but the storyline is well put together. Online is freaking sweet by the way.
NEGITIVES: Now although the storyline is well put together i felt as if it should have been longer, but then again non of us want halo to die forever! Not enough options. Well after going through the campaign you feel like you know the UNSC too well, and the upgrades and stuff become alittle boring. And there isn't a Covident campaign [bummer]
OVERALL: Ok so there is my oppion, really this game is not for people that are looking for Halo 4. No, no, no! This is it's own RTS game uniquely made for a great Halo prequel, and it does exactly that. If you are a fan of RTS games, or Halo, or both, Get this game it is well worth hours and hours of great fun and adventure that Halo always keeps people experiencing.
This game was made as an RTS which means it is not a first person shooter! That is fair warning. As RTS games go this is a great one for a console and hopefully other games follow this example. However, if your a huge RTS fan on the PC then this game may not give you the same feeling. It is not as in depth as PC RTS games are! But just like other Halo games this one shines more on multiplayer. Once you go through campaign your pretty much done with that. The mutiplayer adds to its replay value, so if you dont have Xbox Live then this is diffently a rentel for you.
