Top of my Must Buy list, and it's a VERY long list. I love Halo and like RTS, and this one looks a good'un.

Love RTS games but not a fan of Halo so dont think I will get this. The Trailers and info make it seem like a genric RTS but if the demo is good I may get it.

downloaded the demo last night. Played this morning very good the controls and game play seems built for the consoles,as opposed to getting all the keybord shortcuts onto a control pad. Gonna buy it for being a good game rather then "the next big thing"
Overall 8

Well I've steam rolled the Demo. Just as I suspected its not easier to control than any OTHER RTS on the 360, its just as simple. Why they keep banging on about it revolutionising Strategy games on the 360, I'll never know. The circle menu was used before this by at least C&C Kane's Wrath (awesome game).

You don't get much to play with in the demo, its a shame they didn't put legendary difficulty in with this, Heroic is barely a step up from normal. I was hoping Rushing wouldn't really be an option, its a little harder to do than current RTS' on the 360 but its not impossible. Can't wait to play it ranked!

I was pleasantly surprised to learn there is a 3v3 option online! No longer are we trapped in 4 player max. Its only team games though (1v1 2v2 3v3), but should still be really fun!

I like how a lot of Units have alternate attacks, its pretty cool and lets you be more flexible with unit production (Marines with RPGs!)

All in all I'm glad I pre-order it; has nice graphics, larger multipayer capabilities and its Halo

I'm downloading the demo right now. It's taken ruddy ages, and better be worth it.

I've been looking through reviews online, seems the unit count is a little slimmer then most people would have liked. A lot of the units people thought were coming out, aren't. Like Elite squads or UNSC Hawks. Meh. I'll complain when I see it.

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

After a very long time, I've downloaded the demo. I've really enjoyed it, as it is quite simple, but not overly simple like EndWar, and still has the depth of Age of Empires. However, I'm slightly concerned about voice acting, and the absence of Chips Gubbo (or the australian marine, he had all the best lines!).
