Critic Reviews for Halo Wars: Definitive Edition
Halo Wars: Definitive Edition acts as a good remaster of what has shown itself to be a game that stands the test of time fairly well. Still inhibited by restrictions implemented due to its Xbox 360 origins, it still manages to be fairly enjoyable and look pretty decent while doing it. While technically in early access until release alongside Halo Wars 2, the game desperately needs these limitations removing to allow it to stand on its own as both a decent Xbox One and PC release.
To this day Halo Wars remains the most accessible RTS game to have ever been released on a console, and while it may lack the depth of some of its PC brethren, as an introduction to the genre it is still at the top of its class. The addition of playing it on PC is a welcome inclusion and something for which many people have been asking since the game was originally released in 2009.
Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is a timid attempt to bring this strategy saga closer to PC and Xbox One users before the launch of the second installment. It is quite limited in strategic options (especially on PC), but it is still a lot of fun and makes the hours fly by in front of the television. In addition, it is a good way to remember a studio as legendary as Ensemble.
