Master Chief Is The Batman Of The Future

The latest video documentary for the real-time strategy game Halo Wars takes a look at the individual units appearing in the game, from hordes of Spartans to swarms of Locusts.

Seeing the units in Halo Wars up close and personal like this, even a moderate Halo fan like myself can't help but get a little excited, especially at the prospect of finally getting to see whole squads of Spartans in action. I especially like the allusion that campaign lead Jerome Jones makes regarding controlling a squad of Spartans versus controlling the ultimate Spartan, Master Chief.

It's be like if Batman was here now, and you heard stories that there used to be twenty Batmans, and that was when they could really kick ass.


Yes, Master Chief is the Batman of the future.

So it looks like they just went and added equal units to both sides which (a) takes away the strategy of trying to beat a side that's stronger or different, like NOD vs. GDI and (b) pisses on the lore they talk about by adding all these stronger, more versatile units that aren't seen in the later 'games'. It's like the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

I love RTS games, I really enjoyed Halo. I have a horrible feeling this will be so average. A better use of this idea would have been a Star Wars Battlefront type online game.
