I'm sorry I believe I never got the warning from your message LOL, just noticed it now..
anyways, so far I'm liking halo wars, not loving because I had way too high expectations, but its a great game and, so far, it offers what halo fans want the most, MORE HALO STORYLINE.. I mean, the franchise's lore is so frekin interesting.. I just love every single detail..
plus, it has spartans.. many many spartans (dunno if you knwo the series but spartans in halo are like super bioengineered soldiers ^^, they kick ass...)
