The Control system isn't bad but it's nothing new on the 360, its not quite as revolutionary as they said the game was going to be. The weel and the fast tracking across the map have been used before and are easier to use in Supreme Commander and C&C3: Kane's Wrath (which is a much better RTS in my opinion)

Don't get me wrong, I really like Halo Wars. I just think its too simple, you can't even change unit stances... The online is a lot less elitest than other RTS's online though, seems to be A LOT of people new to Strategy games on there.

At least its going to get suppourt though, shame the same can't be said for C&C (EA I curse you)

All I can say is 'meh'. nothing amazing. not worth AUD$100.

On the subject of Rat Ogres:
But if we give them laser eyes and mounted guns, we'll have to bring in Clan Skryre, and everyone knows how much those limp-tailed snuff addicts overcharge.

umm, in AUS games are always been $100, remember there is a dollar difference thingy exchange rate.

as for me, i was in the computer store watching trailers for games with a friend when one cam on and we looked at it. we sat there wondering what it was, the graphics were horrible and the game play looked lame. we sat there, hmm, it must be from early 2000 judging from those fail graphics. then we seen grunts and a wraith.

well we stared at each other, no way, comon, the graphics cant be that bad (remember it was a video and gears of war 2 trailer before it was great graphics) game boy DS was so much better graphics then this. sure it could be on low but it was a demo video, u have the graphics good not low. and not to mention it looked beyond boring, we almost fell asleep.

a warning on a crossbow

How can you get a feel of gameplay from a video? The Graphics certainly aren't bad and aren't 'fail' (What the hell are fail graphics anyway? That's not a description). And seeing as its not out on PC there isn't any different graphics settings.

Have you seen anything of the game recently then? I mean I could start judging Killzone 2 on that video that was released before the PS3 if we go by Demo Videos

it was a gameplay video so yes i am going to judge it on it as it looked boring to me, by fail graphics i meant they were really bad, early C&C is how bad they were, im sure they can go higher (if it cant then ill be) remember this is my openion on the game from what ive seen

OK, so the gameplay's crap the cutscenes are rubbish and also the explosion skull graphics are just down right amateurish. But it still seems OK for some weird reason.

The cutscenes are brilliant. Especially the one after mission 14, that might possibly be the greatest cutscene ever made.

There's no problem with the gameplay, it perfectly smooth, painfully easy to control and manage all your units and structures, I don't see how any one could have a problem with it

Sorry, I've only read the some of the reviews and haven't played it for ages. And by ages, I mean 3 maybe 4 days. So my minds filled up with school, homework and the game that I'm currently playing.

It looked pretty cool to me, but I am sad that this will be ensemble's last video game ...no more Age of Empires..
