The original game wasn't designed with Windows 10 in mind. And without completely deconstructing the game to make it so, steam or whoever is in charge of distribution wouldn't declare explicitly that the game was meant for win10 unless they felt confident that it would operate flawlessly.

Needless to say thanks to official hot patch support, there shouldn't be too many issues.

Is it a fun game especially if you had keyboard and mouse support, or does it have generic feel?

The original Halo Wars was released in March 2009, which was before Windows 7 was released in October 2009. I think it makes sense that it runs on older operating systems because of when it was developed.

I had no idea the original Halo Wars was ported to PC, that is good news.

I haven't tried it yet, but it should have keyboard and mouse support.

I had no idea the original Halo Wars was ported to PC, that is good news.[QT] it's not just a port, as Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is an enhanced version of the real-time strategy classic, Halo Wars, updated to run natively on PC.

Set early in the iconic war between the Covenant and UNSC - made famous by the Halo FPS games - Halo Wars: Definitive Edition provides a unique angle on the war while bringing new heroes to the battlefield. Control large Halo armies and direct them in action-packed warfare.

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition includes improved graphics, new achievements and all the DLC from the landmark game. Experience the epic campaign or compete in online multiplayer battles with armies of powerful Halo forces at your command.

Network play for this product is exclusive to Steam. Cross-play with Windows Store versions of the same game is not supported. , also happy about this as well.

KB&M is pretty good, they have some new stuff like control groups and window select. My biggest complaint so far are the restrictions on key rebindings.

Its surprisingly well optimized, and the somewhat flexible graphics/resolution options help performance issues. Honestly, if your PC meets the min specs at all, it'll probably run just fine.
