Let's say your child ways Halo 4,Destiny or Halo Reach. You say no because 2 out of the 3 are rated M,and they are all violent. After researching,you find out there is a Teen Halo game. You think to yourself, "Now I can be happy and so can my child!!!Everybody wins!!" This is what happened in my family. I wanted Halo 4, and instead I was allowed to buy Halo Wars. Half excited, I popped it in my 360.I played the tutorial and first mission and I was like,"Yay!!!" But after that it just got REALLY CONFUSING and very boring. It is not a fun game, and I learned that the hard way.If your kid wants A DIFFERENT Halo game, they really are not too bad and after playing Halo 4 at my friend's house, they are easy(sort of). Or,try Destiny, a Teen game that is like Halo. I would give Halo Wars 3 stars. I would most likely not recommend it.
