Halo Wars 2 delivers a superb story that ends with a million possibilities on what could happen in future games. It’s contained and focused nature allows new players to jump in and experience some good old Covenant versus human battles that defined the original Halo trilogy. Its return to the classic art style is an encouraging move to set the franchises look apart from other sci-fi games and the evolution of its gameplay and multiplayer modes is sure to keep many strategizing far into the future.
Blitz mode aside, Halo Wars 2 sticks with a tried, tested and slightly tired RTS formula that's competent, but lacking in depth and originality.
If you're craving an RTS on a console, or perhaps aren't particularly well-versed in the genre, Halo Wars 2 has you covered. It doesn't offer much that other games in the same space have given us over the past 10 years, but it's polished and fun to play.
