i didnt lower my standards i just learned how to use the not to RTS friendly controler the game was good. if it would of been for the PC it would have worked alot better but it is still a dam good RTS.The Amazing Tea Alligator said:I find that lowering your standards so that something passes them is never a good idea.ecoho said:ok for a console RTS it was pretty dam good. That being said i think if they would of made it for the PC and 360 it would have done alot better.The Amazing Tea Alligator said:Yes, but as I said above it's more the reception that's insulting. It's insulting that a game like Halo Wars can exist, not only be made by a great Ensemble Studios but be their final farewell, and that there are critics that can give it an 8.4 with a straight face. The world is a wrong, worrying, and downright insulting place.DazBurger said:But Halo Wars isn't just doing a bad job holding your interest, its downright insulting?The Amazing Tea Alligator said:Those games aren't combat and tactics. Men of War is combat and tactics. Those games are rock paper scissors, micro, and build orders. Nothing wrong with that, it's just not interesting or deep enough to hold my interest.DazBurger said:An RTS dont need economics nor diplomacy. Just look at the C&C games, Warcraft and Starcraft.The Amazing Tea Alligator said:Ensemble has made some good RTS games. Between the lack of any real economy or diplomacy, nor a detailed combat system, it's simply quite dull. If it weren't for the production value, it's about as deep as a movie-based video game. It's like Microsoft expected the game to sell and do well with critics. The trully mindboggling thing is that it did.dogstile said:Insultingly simple? Pray tell, how does a game being simple insult you?The Amazing Tea Alligator said:If you ask me, it was insultingly simple. Not to mention that the console can't do rts controls for shit. There a trillion better rts's out there, all of Ensemble's previous, better games included.dogstile said:
In conclusion, I suppose that it isn't really the game that's insulting (although it is VERY sad that Halo Wars was Ensembles last farewall), but rather it's reception.
No Economics no diplomacy just pure combat and tactics.
