Watched TotalBiscuit's first impressions. I'm passing on this one.
Yeah, I watched that one and the one about the keybinding last night. While I generally have no problem with Mr. British Biscuit (Tally Ho, good chap!) I've noticed that he'll nearly crucify some games and then others that have problems of their own, some much worse, he doggedly puts up with and gives a favorable impression of. I don't know why exactly, maybe it's just because he's human with tastes but there was a point about late last year that I just didn't connect with him anymore and the HaloWars2 vid was the first one I'd watched of his for quite some time. I know he's has health issues but he just isn't as...varied...in his commentary as he once was, I'll put it that way.
Still, it seems HaloWars2 is just more of HaloWars1, which is just fine with me. I really do hope they kept the awesome soundtrack going for the second one. I listen to the first ones often. You wouldn't think an FPS series would have such an grand and compelling soundtrack as Halo does, but there it is. I'm genuinely surprised each time a HALO game comes out by the quality of it's music. Highlights are REACH and ODST, for me, anyway. Since they parted ways with Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori, it's been downhill, IMO. It took me a long
time to warm up to Halo4 and 5's soundtrack.
