Mild Blood, Mild Language, Violence
Rating summary: This is a real time strategy (RTS) action game in which players engage in futuristic battle against an alien race. Players collect and manage resources to mobilize/upgrade their units (e.g., UNSC Marines, SPARTAN special forces units, armored vehicles) and fight in large-scale battles. Combat is depicted from a top-down perspective as players use firearms, explosives, and flamethrowers against enemies. Explosions, fire effects, and cries of pain highlight gameplay action, while cutscenes sometimes depict impalement of human soldiers. One cutscene depicts streaks of red blood on a sergeant's face, neck, and torso. Expletives (e.g., "b*tch," "bastard," and "hell") can be heard during battle and also in the dialogue of some cutscenes.
Halo Wars is the next big real-time strategy game from Ensemble Studios, creators of “Age of Empires.” Designed exclusively for the Xbox 360, Halo Wars allows you to take charge of the human UNSC armies and see the Halo universe from a totally new perspective. Halo Wars takes place before Halo 1 during the UNSC’s first deadly encounters with the Covenant. Players lead the crew of the UNSC’s “Spirit of Fire” from initial skirmishes to an all out war against the evil Covenant.
