Halo Wars 2 

 

My heart jumps for joy that Family Friendly Gaming purchased a copy of Halo Wars 2 on the Xbox One for this review. The politically correct PR and Marketing people for Microsoft failed Family Friendly Gaming completely. My guess is because we do not have the same religious beliefs they do. Just a guess.

This RTS (real time strategy) video game is a very large installation. It also follows the Halo universe. Halo Wars 2 is mostly online only. There is an offline skirmish mode with eight maps to play. They can be played in Domination, Strongholds, and Deathmatch. Games is Halo Wars 2 can go a long time. Especially as we gather resources, research better troops, make troops and deploy them. Battles can wage for a while until one side gets the upper hand.

The match making in Halo Wars 2 is horrible. My first match they put me up against a level 45. I was level 1. How exactly is that fair or balanced? Players can not get any experience from beating the AI. You are forced to play others online. Which requires an Xbox Live Gold membership. So pay even more after paying for this game.

Halo Wars 2 can be hard depending on the amount of resources you start with. The more I started with the better I did against the AI. The less I had the worse I did. In fact Halo Wars 2 can be a challenging game if you do not know what you are doing. Go through the tutorial to learn how to build things up.

There are a few options in Halo Wars 2 like turning off the fog of war. Loading times are long. The sections of Halo Wars 2 are Campaign, Multiplayer, Blitz, Tutorial, Skirmish, and Store. Campaign and Blitz are both online. I value Halo Wars 2 at five dollars brand new.
