With the upcoming release of Halo Wars in the United States we see that Gamestop will be coming out with a midnight launch event. It appears as though this is purely for the game. Unlike other special releases, it doesn’t sound as though there will be any sort of freebies given out to those of us standing outside their doors at midnight.
Personally, this game will be stuffed on the shelves yet in the morning and I can personally wait on this one. My minds still not made up as to whether I’ll buy this. If you are hardcore into the storyline I think it’s something you should invest in eventually. I missed Halo 1, skipped the mission videos of Halo 2 (just played, so missed most of the story line), and then I beat Halo 3 with watching the videos.
My conclusion is, if you really enjoy this type of game from the demo that we all got to play, or you are really into the story line and want to be in the know, then this game might be worth purchasing. Real time strategy games just aren’t my fancy.
