First Halo Wars game wasn't that bad as a game, but it could've used some serious improvement in RTS department, but that was the issue, because there were people working on the game that were not knowing what they were doing. This time, masters of strategy games, Creative Assembly of Total War series fame, were responsible for this, and now we got proper strategy game, although it has nothing to do with TW and it builds on foundations that original Halo Wars left. Gameplay is fine, so are the graphics and music, only thing half-baked about it really is the story, which is pretty bare bones. I thing this game would've been better if they actually went with Total War approach - mayhem like this would be crazy to watch and incredibly fun. But for what it is, it's a fine game, especially since you when you buy it, you get it for both xbox one and PC, so you get 2 games for the price of one. Overall, I recommend it, especially if you liked the first game and don't expect Total War: Halo or you're Halo fan.
Finally the wait is over, one of the most anticipated games for this year. Like all the games in this great saga and you could not expect less from this great saga, the campaign has about 12 missions which can easily take us 9 hours to complete, but I assure you that it will be 9 hours of pure fun and one Immersion in history like no other game and the best thing is that you can play it both on pc and xbox one without any additional cost.
