A prequel to the classic Halo games, “Halo Wars” is a strategy game where players command armies against the alien Covenant which is threatening to obliterate mankind. In story mode, players join the crew aboard the “Spirit of Fire” starship, guided by Serina, an artificial intelligence.

Four weeks before its release, Halo 2 was the number three product overall on Amazon and the retailerīs number one Early Adopter Video Game. The feverishly-anticipated sequel to the most successful Xbox game ever is bigger, badder and louder than the original. The central story in Halo 2 is considered stronger than the original, and so are the additional multi-player modes: Oddball, Race, Slayer, Capture the Flag and more. Perhaps the most innovative feature in the game is that literally everything on screen is destroyable or otherwise susceptible to weapon fire. Halo 2 is Xbox Live enabled so you can meet up with players around the globe using a broadband connection.
