Teased back in 2015, Halo Wars 2 was a game that took many of us by surprise. As good as the first Halo Wars was, not many felt that a sequel would come. But when that first trailer launched, people went nuts!
The gameplay of Halo Wars 2 is that of a real time strategy game. Like before it is all about the UNSC (humans) going against the Covenant. The story mode is actually very well done and like the first game, it is told with some incredible cut scenes that really do hook you and make you invested in the story. One of the things we liked about the story was how it was like a side story to the whole Halo universe and anything that helped give more insight to the Halo universe is very welcomed by the fans.
Halo Wars 2 is the kind of real time strategy game that is not really aimed at hardcore players of this genre of game. One of the criticisms some people had was that it was a little too accessible for some. This though for people who were new to this genre of the game was a very good thing. The rather basic and accessible nature of the gameplay made it a real time strategy game that we could all enjoy. For those players who felt it a little too simplistic. They could jump online and wage war with a more skilled opponent.
