I've never played EndWar. Seemed too much like 16 of the other RTS games I play. Or is that 17?

Does Diablo 2 count as an RTS?

Halo 3 is no where near the best RTS game on 360. Yes it was a fair attempt at a console only RTS but it's just so simple and linear... The only good thing over other RTS games is there's very little elitist bullpoo on the multiplayer but that coudl be becuase it's not a very elitist game. For me After playing all the C&C, endwar, supreme commander and the other RTS games on console I find Supreme commander to be the best but that still is only a shadow of the PC version.... Mainly opinion though....

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

Halo Wars was fun. However, it was a little linear. And the objectives in campaign were a bit naff. There was one level (was it level 13 - Beachead? Can't remember) where you had to capture 4 bases. I captured the 4 bases, waited for the big battle to keep control of the area and....nothing. The mission ended. Not great.

Also, Multiplayer got really old really quickly. There were only 2 modes which were both pretty much identical. Just blow up the enemy. No capture the flag. No battles over blowing up a strategic objective. Just point and shoot. A missed opportunity, multiplayer.

However, I thoroughly enjoyed Halo Wars. A bit too simplistic, but had a great story. It just needed a bit more multiplayer or challenges to give it more of a life past the end cutscene.

I disliked how you could only choose between 1X1, 2X2, or 3X3. It was fun, but I don't think it was worth the 4 delays it took to get it done.
