Halo Wars = "Magic in Disk"

Kotaku - December 27, 2007


Submitted by lstormy10 (32) at 1:20PM PST on December 27, 2007


"We don't generally turn to developers for our game reviews, but if we trust Ensemble Studios' Graeme Devine, lead designer on Halo Wars, then the game is gonna be pretty good. ...Devine mentions controls, because I'm not so certain that any console has gotten the RTS interface just right. And an RTS that has perfect controls on a console may be a little piece of magic after all."
