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.
