    I normally hate RTS's but I loved this demo. Maybe it was to do with Halo which made me like it.

    Really really loved it but I don't think I;'ll get it, maybe if it comes down in about a year to £20 or something like Halo 3 did then I may get it but I can't get this, Halo 3: ODST and Halo chronicals D: Still this demo will be on my HD for a long time, skirmish is pretty good, there's no better sight than to have 5 Scorpions and 2 Hornets and a S*** load of soldiers and 3 spartasn bring down a whole covenant base and two scarabs. Maaaaan that skirmish is fuuuun [​IMG]

    P.S I may have pre ordered if the demo showed what online could do, say max number of players e.c.t

    It was ok..... I think it was a bit slow for an RTS, well slower than Command and Conquer in my opinion. I don't think i'm going to get it unless it gets outstanding ratings. Right now, it looks pretty average.

    I loved it as well.

    Be sure to check out skirmish mode and test out the Covenant. Maxed out prophet and Scarab is insane!

    Dreadfully boring.

    It will sell well, and many many 12 year olds will be disappointed on how it's not anything like the real Halo series.

    i still don't get how any rts can succeed on a console. the whole point of an rts is for it to be intense and fast paced, and u can't have that kind of control without a mouse/keyboard.

    I was actually impressed with the Demo, and I despise halo as a series, but I am just glad there was no MC in the game.

    It is looking like one of the more solid RTS entries for consoles from what the demo gave me, and prior to playing it, had very little interest in the game, now I am considering picking it up when it comes out.

    I wish I had gotten to play the Covenant aswell, but its a demo after all.

    I am going to write a review of the demo tonight I believe discussing the good and the bad.

    Thanks for being constructive, what is it about the game you dislike? Just curious.
