What is your obsession with bashing the 360 and anything to do with it? The mere mention of the Xbox sends you into a frenzy. Get a life.

Yep thats pretty good for a strategy game.........................................on a console. Those 2 still dont mix though. RTS games and FPS shooters are way better on a PC. I think the game sold that many because of the Halo name. If that game had another name, i dont think it would have sold a quarter of that.

I rented this game from Blockbuster not knowing it was an RTS, I thought it was crap. I took it back after about 15 minutes of playing it and swapped it for Tomb Raider: Underworld. Which I am enjoying very much. It's a very beautiful game with some nice scenery, and the puzzles I've come across are somewhat challenging so far. I was amazed at the first level of the game with you having to swim like half a mile under water to find an underwater city. Great graphics also. I highly recommend it.

EDIT: Whoa, I got way off topic there. My attention span is very short if you haven't noticed already. :lol::lol:
