Halo almost single handily made the original Xbox a contender in Microsoft’s first console war. Years later, and with three Halo titles now selling millions the world over, the rich Halo universe has been expanded with Halo Wars. UNSC soldiers are at a player’s command - as well as classic Halo vehicles such as the Warthog – as the fight against the Covenant begins.
With the PC having complete dominance over the strategy genre with its mouse and keyboard set-up, Halo War was always designed with the Xbox 360 in mind. Players have been given a concise, original control scheme designed to work with an Xbox 360 controller.
