I though this game was going to be an "on a budget and all we care about is money" type of game but truly, this game is amazing. I expected the graphics to be a little on the bad side but when I payed the first mission I was amazed! the detail in the map is great! You can see forests, hills, towns, and valleys! It is a simple, easy game to learn and has a good amount of difficulty. Its enough to make you scratch your head but not so much that you throw the controller at the television. Voice acting is a not so great but you can get over it. I really like how you follow the story of you, a commander, as you progress through promotions and internal conflicts with other colonials, commanders, etc.
Overall a great game with a decent challange!

This is by far my favorite RTS game on xbox. The graphics are good and everything runs so smoothly. The story is okay, but not as good as that in Halo Wars. The Skirmishes are fun with many modes and time periods. The only con I have is the Skirmish time limit. I would rather have a long drawn out siege rather than a timed base rush, but the time limit does keep the action high.
