First Halo Wars reviews go live

Friday, 20th February 2009 14:29 GMT By Patrick Garratt


The Halo Wars review embargo just lifted, and pieces are starting to appear now. Eurogamer’s gone with 8/10, which is spot on as far as we’re concerned, having got our copy yesterday.

There’ll be more soon, no doubt. If you want anything added, drop a link in the comments. The game, Ensemble’s last, ships on February 27.

    I didn’t realise there was an embargo. Edge reviewed it in the last issue (and gave it a 7).

    Amusingly, it’s current Metacritic user review score is 0.8/10. :-D

    I decided to get this game after playing the demo, which isn’t how I had expected to feel.

    Seems very good. Not great, but worth a purchase.

    More or less the same as I felt, was going to get it purely as a fan of Halo but really enjoyed the demo. Looking forward to this now. 8′s all round sounds like the right ballpark to me.

    Was gonna get it next week with Killzone 2 but I wont get my Jobseekers gyro for a while yet so Killzone 2 next week.

    That said, once I have the money for it, I’ll buy it.
