I'm going to give this it's own seperate thread. It's Ensemble Studios's last game. I have been playing the demo. I wasn't sure whether if I would be going to buy it but now after playing quite a few Skirmish matches I think I'm going to get it.
PC fanboys won't like it, Halo haters won't like it and it's not going to make RTS mainstream but the more I have played the demo, the more I like it. Controls are really good. It's very Halo like. Heroic A.I. doesn't offer much of an opponent tho so it's kinda hard to see how the game plays when against a serious real opponent.
The Flood isn't a playbable faction. That sucks.
