Well, I just logged on to live and found out that the demo is out, so I am downloading it as I type this. I'll be waiting a long time, so tell me, how is it? I don't often play RTSes so I thought I would give it a shot, but for those who have the demo and have played it, is it worth pulling out a few notes from your pocket for? I sure as hell hope so. Anyway, feel free to discuss.

Watch the tutorial for it before you start anything.

The Campaign for it was really short, and didn't fill me up enough, and skirmish is annoying to me, because it takes a lot to get used to.

It's alright for a demo, but too short. And about it being an RTS, they made it pretty decent and user friendly, considering it's on a console.

I'm just anxious to see what the hype is about with Halo Wars. I've always liked the idea of strategy games, but have never been bothered to play them, so I hope Halo Wars could change that.

95% complete!

What factions can you play with in the demo? I'm assuming most of the factions and other features would have been reserved for the release itself.

Yeah. Demo's epic. Only thing i have to say about it is the colors on the units really bugs me. Would be cool to see actual realistic colors on the units in campaign. Not a problem with it in skirmish or multiplayer though.

Aww man I thought they removed that thing already. Looks stupid in my opinion; only needed when multiple teams using the same race/faction.

99%! I am so excited that I can't even type, but for some reason I am typing now, so I am possibly being sarcastic, but I am probably too excited to be sarcastic at the same time. Excitement is a biatch.

Wow, this game is amazing, and I'm not even talking about the cutscenes. As sad as it may be, I've played the campaign three times already, and played another 2 hours straight in Skirmish. I think the gane is worth the buy.

It's amazing, I wish Ensemble did a short video because the Cut scenes are amazing.

Didn't like it. RTS's suck on consoles. And Halo, in my opinion, is a game that just sucks for RTS.

Mien red ringed again the morning i went to DL. Thank god for towels.

I'm surprised you didn't like it, most people so far who don't like it really made up their mind before playing it, or just don't get it.

Just the idea of an RTS version of Halo didn't really appeal to me. And an RTS just doesn't feel right on console to me. I'm used to playing them on PC.

although microsoft and ensemble studios currently deny that a pc port is planned, i argee that it is probably inenvitable. Age of empires series- All of PC. They would probably make much more money for it on PC than for a single platform anyway

If they do a PC port, It'll need massive retooling.

Since Ensemble has closed, I doubt that it would ever happen, sorry to say. The animation for the cut scenes is sweet though.

I wish I had never known about that project, because now I am even more saddened that it didn't come out :(

I wish I had LIVE so I can play. There might be some gameplay in it. From what I have heard, the UNSC can win if they spam ODST drops, and the Covenant jsut need to use Regrets Cleansing Ray on the base while pilign on the cash.

Lol I just deploy hornets asap and take control of the central path. After that I usually corner the covenant base and take over the other camps and bases in the map. Pure win.

P.S. R.I.P HaloGen. 'Tis sad the game didn't come out.

Halogen looked cool, but this is something totally different. I'd take Halowars anyday based on what I've seen.

Yea, but I will not on a 360. On a PC, yea. Not 360.

Who ever is going to argue with me.. well, that's my opinion, so don't bother. :)

I agree.

Halowars will not be released for PC anytime soon.

Oh, and is there any way to get Halogen anymore? I want to try it on my C&C Generals =P.
