Look at me mom! Its Halo topdown!

So this game is smooth. From the crazy good looking cut-scenes, to the exciting score and yes, even the controls are smooth.

Ive never been a big fan of the Halo franchise. Though i have played the games and experienced big humiliations online, the game just never appealed that much to me. On top of that, my RTS skills are somewhat lacking, so my expectations were not THAT high.

So if you want to get an RTS that wont scare you with its harvesting and basebuilding, and on top of that delivers a thrillingly exciting story line, this is definetly a must buy.
