85 from us. It's good! Short but sweet campaign, while Blitz is life.

http://www.criticalhit.net/review/halo-wars-2-review/

Halo Wars 2 is a ballroom blitz with dangerously addictive levels of fun. It may be lacking in the length department when it comes to its tragically short campaign, but itís a shining second chance example at proving that strategy games can work on console.

I believe it's new leaders (and therefore new units), blitz packs and singleplayer missions. All maps will be free for all so that the community isn't split afaik.

I finished heroic campaign yesterday - it took me around 10-12h but I always explored maps and tried to do as many optional/bonus objectives as possible. It was great and definitely as good as the first one, maybe a little disappointing story-wise (in the end it felt like an opening for something bigger). If you liked Halo Wars, you should get this.

On the low end of what I expected, doesn't effect my anticipation at all as I know it's up my alley and they aren't too bad or anything... but I was hoping to see it up higher just to drive some extra players/interest to the game.

Disappointed to see another Halo game launch with bugs, sounds like too many people had problems with lock ups and such in campaign.

I enjoyed it and have played dozens of RTS including a ton of ranked 1v1 Starcraft 2 at a decent level. It's not really an RTS mode, but after getting a grip on the energy mechanics and various unit abilities the micro could actually be pretty intense having units scattered around the map getting energy, healing, contesting points, picking off smaller groups at once. Well, against the occasional decent opponent rather than people just trying the game for the first time.

That said I don't expect to play it all that much in the final game.

I guess you never played Ground Control 1&2, they are classic PC RTS games and have the same formula.

No need to insult people just because you didn't like it.

The ending is disappoint for me. Story DLC incoming maybe?

What do you think about after credit scene?

Maybe this ring is Cortana's Halo what we saw in Halo 5 Legendary ending?

The reviewer doesn't sound like he will give it a high score in the comments.

happyjuice
calling it. 8 out of 10. he doesn't seem to like the controls. They are still the best rts console controls

@happyjuice That'd be generous. It's not bad, but it's not a great game either.

What was disappointing for me is that it never really felt like a war between Cutter and Atriox, more like a story of three Spartans.

So far the same score as Halo Wars 1. In a time when reviewers are more strict then last gen. Sounds good to me.
