Well, thats a bummer. Spending 80 friggen' dollars on a game is ridiculous, even if it's good, but one of the perks of Halo Wars was gunna be Sandbox.

I didn't even go that far, if it's really good, in a few months, they'll release a few more maps I bet.

I'd give it a 9/10.

I'd like the maps to be more diverse and perhaps larger, but otherthan that, the game sticks with you when you walk away. You realize what you did wrong, and if you watch other players, you learn more tricks as you go along.

That's good. What are the controls? As in, is voice command required, or heavily suggested? I hate having to talk to myself. :P

The controls are surprisingly easy for a console RTS. Sticks control the camera, select units/buildings with A, hold A to paint, etc etc. I can tell (From the demo, blasted test week) that Ensemble really worked hard on these controls.

Good to know. I'm glad to see you actually can fly around the 'field instead of having the stupid EndWar thing of hotswaping unit cams. I mean, it made sense, but...

EndWar wasn't a science fiction game about aliens blasting superhuman godmods Spartans around. It was a far more realistic game putting you in command of a realistic battalion :p

Spartans, once upgraded, are a bitch to kill. It takes quite the focus, not to mention, if you're not careful, they'll hijack your vehicles and some of your crucial, time-consuming pieces of war, turn against you in the most crippling moment.

:(


Frakkin' Spartans. :P

I'm pissed you can't use pelicans. Why, Bungie, why do you keep the Pelicans away from us? :P

Half a dozen Wraiths are a better bet. Cheaper and faster to get.

But aren't equipped with death rays that obliterate absolutely everything, so therefore Scarabs win :P

The scarabs can go down easy, if you know the right counters. I haven't found a great covenant anti-air though.

Any ideas?
