From FPS to RTS

I enjoyed and loved playing Halo 1,2, and 3 because of its FPS style game play and multiplayer options and modes. Bungie actually wanted Halo 1 to be a RTS but Microsoft made them change it into a FPS. Halo Wars completely changes the FPS, that every Halo fan loves, to a RTS. I don't like it as much as I like Halo 3, Bugie should have been responsible for creating the game, not Ensemble studios. It might not last as long as Halo 3 but I still enjoy playing Halo Wars. I hope they come out with a sandbox version next and mabey a better sequel to halo wars.

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.
