All You Need to Know About Halo Wars – A Warhead From a Fan
I first heard of Halo Wars way back in the month of September 2004 when the game was first announced way back in June. At that time they did not have an official release date yet however it was in the making so I just had to be a part of it. The game originally was going to be called “Halo: Combat Evolved” but that was before the team decided to change it’s name to “Halo Wars” so that would sound formal and official.
 
When the game was finally released in September of 2008 it turned out to be a huge success and was merchandised like crazy. It was probably the most anticipated game that month and overall the game turned out to be great. Now the game has been predicted to be a hit by many, and even by the creators of the game itself for years before it’s arrival. That’s how good of a game it is.
 
The game starts out in a pastiche of a story. A human conflict between the ODSTs (Orgs) and the humans that are left after the events of Halo. This conflict is being dragged on by the UNSC (United Nations Space Command) who are making an effort to end the fighting. You are playing the role of a soldier known as a Nightrunner, or a Visarii as they are from the race that you initially chose. สล๊อตเว็บตรงแตกง่าย
 
You will have a teammates that will accompany you in this first game game release. You will first get to choose who will be your AI partner for the duration of the war. Then your character will make his or her way off on his or her own. From there you will get to switch onto another AI controlled character. Just think of it as you could have several different characters you could play. Though the most wanted variation is obviously the Protoss.
 
It is a fairly sweet plot, the kind that would make you wonder why this war is happening. Basically your race turns against their creator and they must save the Earth and all it’s inhabitants from the Horde. The story does sound great from a casual gamer’s perspective, that is of course when they are not playing Halo themselves. It does touch on some serious subjects too and I loved the way it explored that territory.
 
The game play is what you would expect from a Halo game. These are the items from Halo 1 that you are probably thinking back from. (The grenades, the guns, plasma pistol, Science assists etc)
 
The weapons have a nice feel to them now and do have a good amount of customization features available. There are many multiple variations of guns that you will find which allows for some nice weapon specialization. You will find that though the maps tend to be small, there are enough maps to play around in some decent length. Unfortunately when playing multi player the game does not handle it very well. The multi player mode is very primitive. The majority of players are only focused on perks and are not very active. It’s as if you are not really playing the game.
 
The one aspect of the game that is still improved is the graphics. The visuals are definitely improved from those that were in the Halo 2 edition. The changes are very subtle but are there and it does improve the game play greatly. Coming up with a new game is always a challenge and with a enhanced graphics, better game play and more options available, Halo Wars will be a challenge to even the most experienced player.
