After the break. Although many people think an RTS can’t be adequately done on a console, we must say, this does look rather special.

Ensemble Studios’ swansong goes on sale Feb 27 in Europe with a demo due February 5.

    I have to say… I can’t see what’s so appealing about this. Looks pretty standard RTS fare. Perhaps the story and environments might help along the way.

    But as always… early judgments (and uninformed ones like mine) are worthless, so I’ll hang on :)

    This is their final project before Microsoft shuts them down.

    If anyone’s looking to see if RTS can be done on the console, I’d have to highly recommend the recent EndWar from the Tom Clancy franchise. I’m not sure if the demo does it justice.

    In fact, I’ll be astonished if Halo Wars is a better game than EndWar, just because the voice-command thingy is so perfect for making up for the lack of Mouse-and-Keyboard.
