Halo Wars was a game both master strategist and Halo fans could enjoy.Being both Halo wars was a dream come true for me. With an amazing story about battles fought against the covenant and won by regular old UNSC troops, mostly anyway, and unique units, upgrades, and maps that help quite a lot. The end was especially  great with it showing the three Spartans PWN a battalion, or so, of Elites. Not to mention how awesome it was to destroy UNSC, or other Covenant, forces with Scarabs in skirmish mode. It's sad to hear what happened to makers of this game, but who knows maybe 343 will make a Halo Wars 2 or something like that.
