 Set in the Halo Universe, Halo Wars is a Xbox 360 game that follows up on the sucessful Halo series of games. Developed as a real-time strategy game instead of the normal shooter game, Halo wars lets the players build armies and bases, harvest resources and defend themselves. With single-player, multiplayer, co-op and Xbox live play options, Halo Wars is a good option for a social game, and in some sorts is a glorified game of rock-paper-scissors. Ground vehicles beat infantry, infantry beat aircraft, and aircraft beat ground vehicles. Throw in special abilities, and customizable hero units and the game is complete. Since it was specially designed from the ground up for the Xbox 360 console, the game takes full advantage of the controller setup and delivers a game that syncs well with the player.

New question: Is it worth full price? And should I get the limited edition so I can have the mythic map pack? Does anyone know the price of the limited edition?

I think if you get into the multiplayer AND the multi is well balanced then the game will have longevity. However, if you're just in it for the single player campaign/story then I think it's a rental, or a bargain-bin style game.

Personally, I've already played the demo about 8 times so I don't think I'll be getting bored with things in the near future. What's sweet is that even the single-player maps are built for replayability by using the similar SKULL system as Halo 3, and tracking points.

The question: how soon will I get bored with this? I'm not a major RST player, but I do like Starcraft, but usually RSTs bore the crap out of me and I end up putting in resource and time cheats. But this looks promising.
