Halo Wars 2 reviews and comments

I liked the first halo wars a lot more than this one. I’m not sure what it was but I really don’t think halo wars 2 is a very well made rts. That being said, it’s still the halo universe and console is extremely light on RTS games so it was fun for a bit. I just don’t think this game was very deep and it didn’t keep me playing for long.

Final Score:B+
Good campaign for solo players and Halo fans, but nothing else to do if you don't play online. For reasons unknown to me, the AI for skirmish always doest the same thing over and over again and this takes away a lot of fun the first game's skirmish offered. 

I clicked "Recommended", because there's nothing between this and "Meh". Consider my vote to be "It's just ok".
