Halo Wars sets download record

halowars

Like all Ensemble games before it Halo Wars is set to break records and have smashing sales. Today Microsoft announced that Halo Wars by prized developer Ensemble Studios has passed 2 million downloads making it the most popular demo EVER!

This is great news for all the hard work Ensemble Studios put into the game whilst also raising a big question mark as to why Microsoft chose to close the studio.

The game looks outstanding and I look forward to playing it soon. It really looks like Ensemble will achieve their goal of bringing an RTS to the console successfully. The interface and tutorial make the game look very easy to get to grips with. I also note the outstanding sound and music. Stephen Rippy has really done a good job here and I already seem comments complementing the music on YouTube.  The music during game play and cut scenes really makes the game feel like an epic RTS. This is Ensemble’s last game and it looks like they are going to go out with a bang.

Hats off to them.
