It was recently announced that the Halo Wars demo was downloaded over 2 million times by Xbox Live Gold Members. That now makes Halo Wars the most downloaded demo on Live. That's pretty impressive and I hope that more people check it out because it really is fun demo.



Halo Wars is an RTS, or Real Time Strategy game, that takes place about 20 years before the events of Halo: Combat Evolved. It is still a battle against the Covenant, although in this game, you actually get a chance to become them.



The Demo Starts off with a quick and simple tutorial to get used to controlling your army, which is very easy and only requires a button presses to get then going. The Left stick is for moving your cursor, and the Right Stick is for zooming in and out of the action. RTS games are usually preferred on a PC, but Halo Wars seems to work just fine with the Xbox 360 controller in hand.



Along with a few quick missions, The Halo Wars Demo allows you to check out a little of the game's multiplayer modes. Skirmish is played with up to 6 players and it is a intense race to build an army ready to destroy the opposition's base. The full game will also allow Players to complete the campaign in Co-op over Xbox Live.


So If you have a Xbox Live Gold Membership, Be sure to join the 2 million plus that have checked out the Halo Wars Demo. The Full Game is set for a March 3rd Release in The U.S.
