"I agree, under-appreciated. Cinematics in Halo Wars were great for the time and controller RTS worked," he said. "Reminded me of StarCraft on N64."
Halo Wars was the final game from developer Ensemble Studios, which was closed down following the completion of the title in 2009.
There was some level of controversy surrounding Halo Wars. Halo creator Bungie reportedly never wanted the game to be made, with Ensemble Studios founder Tony Goodman saying Bungie saw Halo Wars as "whoring out" the Halo franchise.
