8.4 out of 10 - IGN

Halo Wars deftly dodges between the hardcore micromanagement of real-time strategy and the instant gratification expected by Halo fans. Ensemble has nailed console RTS controls, but at the expense of some depth.

While Halo Wars won’t be relieving strategy fans of their mice and keyboards, Ensemble Studios has crafted a genuinely fun experience. There are drawbacks, but those new to the genre likely won’t even notice them, and Halo fans won’t care. Most importantly, console fans finally have a genuinely good real-time strategy experience on their gaming platform of choice.

It’s a decidedly different take on a massively popular franchise, but it’s one that ends up achieving what so many console RTSes have failed to by stripping away cumbersome control schemes and giving console players (and in this case Halo players) something that feels like it was made with them in mind.

Halo Wars is a fun strategy outing for fans of the universe, but it feels simplistic and short alongside other games in the genre.
