Worse Controls, Unplayable on keyboard

This is a fun game if you are playing on a tablet, but its absolutely unplayable on a desktop. The controls are horrible and are not editable, so you are forced to do movement with the letters instead of the arrow keys(It seems like they are they for some reason). I am tired of constantly hitting the wrong buttons.

Fun, and a bit of Halo history.

If you like games like Expendable, this version of Halo has a very similar play style. Basically a top down twin stick shooter. But it's done in a way that makes it interesting. The missions have purpose, are varied, and each one brings with it a little bit of history. the graphics and sound are good, listen for characters off screen, especially in convoy missions where you have to protect vehicles.

great story

the story is great and the challenges are hard enough for me but what would double the price or even more is if you added a 4v4 or 3v3 multiplayer. then this game like any other halo game deserves 5 stars.

A great example of what a windows store game should be!

I was a bit hesitant with the big price tag for an app, but it was definitely worth it. This game is very intuitive, has great graphic, a good story, and is not too easy, but not too challenging. I haven't played the sequel yet, I'll probably get that right after I complete this one. Great job on this one!

i switched to windows 8 on my computer to play this game (before win10) and i liked it, the only thing i dislike is that it doesent have much replay value. if they added a firefight mode i woud give it 5 stars

It well worth the price, offers a great campaign between Halo 3 and 4. Wish there could be a multiplayer option, but definitely no complaints there.

View from the top

Frame rate is smooth colors are vivid sound is on point and graphics are clean with cool animation. Xp points are hard to earn so you will be replaying missions a lot or spending some real life money for credits and since the update the game seems to be upgraded to run more like the newest release and that's a good thing. I'm not a fan of the top down view and the distance of the camera but it works. At times its like a castle defense type game and levels are sometimes too easy then suddenly very hard but its mostly fun.
