Halo Wars 2 (XOne) > Opinions (21)

Mr Puggsly posted 29/01/2019, 06:19
Legs were actually okay for this game. I didn't think it would even hit 500K physical units. If they eventually bring this to Steam it would get a big boost in digital sales, Halo Wars 1 is a hit on Steam both in sales and critically.

I hope we get a Halo Wars 3 just because it would be nice to get one of these a generation and people enjoy the story. They probably sell well enough for the budget and they don't have to tweak the gameplay much.

People really surprised? First one couldn't crack 3m on a much bigger install, if this manages to reach 1m I'd say that's pretty good lol

@thewastedyouth - Meanwhile at Bungie Destiny 2 did worse than the original.

A lot of long running IPs decline, I mean that's partly BF1 and CoD:WWII became historic shooters again.

Halo is a franchise that is slowly dying because Microsoft does not know what to do with it. Bungie was the heart of Halo and with them gone no other developer will ever understand the lore, characters and gameplay.

This is a dire sales situation. Honestly didn't expect it to be this bad, don't even think it's first holiday season on release will push many copies of it.

Even though this game is kinda mediocre, I wish it would've sold better. I doubt there's ever gonna be a third.

Yeah, its looking like this is a failure. Would be lucky to break even at this rate.

And this is why we see less variety in the market. People flock to a few genres.

I personally like this game, but I hope they make their money back on it because the sales aren't too good in all honesty. With pc/digital I think this could hit a million, but that isn't too good still.

Pretty much the (physical) sales that were expected imo. I wish more people would give it a chance though, I never thought rts-game would play so well on console and I'm having tons of fun playing it. I like the more casual approach, especially Blitz.

I noticed a lot of people are calling this a dumbed down RTS. Not every RTS needs to be Starcraft, this is a more casual approach to RTS and its fun.

The first game wasn't a mega hit, so I'm sure expectations for this should be modest. However, it might do well being on PC and Xbox.

I was a fan of the first game so I will certainly grab this, but I'm busy with other games right now.

@thewastedyouth - Next week. Ultimate Edition figures will be combined with the standard version's, and the standard version was the next week in chart terms.

I like the game, but yeah, it's really dumbed down for an RTS. Still really enjoy it and it'll probably keep me turning on my XBone for a while.

I already tried the beta on PC, it's a dumbed down RTS but still decent. I was skeptical about this because of how garbage Halo SA was, I might actually get the 1st game now when it's on sale.

Play the first game if you want to find out Mentore. The gameplay is good and the story and presentation is excellent.
