I love this game. It is amazing in many ways. First of all, the graphics are amazing. In-game graphics look good, but the cutscenes are what really blew my mind. They look like real life! Also, this game has enough material to keep one occupied for a long time. The game offers two game modes: Campaign, and online/offline skirmish. The campaign is difficult depending on what difficulty you put it on, and it is long enough for my liking. It is interactive with the environment and the AI units aren't stupid like most other games. That goes for skirmish mode too. Skirmish mode has six playable characters: Sargeant Forge, Captain Cutter, Professor Anders, the Arbiter, the Brute Cheiftain, and the Prophet of Truth. Each one has their own special abilities that dominate opposing units if used correctly. Overall, this game is a good way to spend time. The only bad thing is that whatever you do on Halo Wars, it is very time consuming. But whatever, this game in my opinion is a great sequel to Halo 3 that appeals to Halo junkies and strategy gamers alike.
