The good: -stays true to the franchise -the 2nd to last FMV where the spartans own the elites is worth it -Co-op campaign allows one player to control the base while the other controls the units, or a mix of both -Relatively simple controls to learn and master
the bad: -It's an RTS on a console. Ignore the fact that the AI can always out micro manage you in an RTS when you have more control on a PC. -No covenant campaign
Overall, it's defintely a game i enjoyed renting. I'm not sure how much staying power it has compared to other games in the genre.
