Halo Wars is a strategy game that takes place before the Halo 1, Halo 2 and Halo 3 events. Being a strategy game, one must expect the strategy game graphics to go with it, which are not the best. At the same time, strategy games usually do not have crystal clear graphics. The sounds in the game are pretty cool though. The game makers used the same sounds from the three Halo games. When a spartan is recharging, you hear the same noise when your shield recharges in the other Halo games. It has multiplayer and campaign modes. The campaign of the game is tedious and gets boring very fast. I got stuck on the third level and gave up for a couple of days before trying again. After getting pretty far in the campaign I concluded that the storyline was not very thought out and is not fun to play. Besides the campaign, the rest of the game is really good. I really enjoyed the online multiplayer games. The online battles are always action packed and there are always a lot of explosions and surprises that come at the player. Overall I give the game a 4 and I would definitely recommend buying it.
