There’s a decent game beneath some unfortunate flaws and irritating business practice, and I would genuinely like to see Vanguard have another crack at a top-down Halo without such questionable deterrents.
On the surface, Halo: Spartan Assault is a solid twin-stick shooter, much better suited to consoles than mobiles and PC. Ultimately, however, it feels like a mobile game, containing breezy missions that aren't much to look at and provide little in the way of a challenge. Oh, and it costs twice the price to access.
This game **** ass **** the halo series and **** all of you **** who play it you **** hhhhhhhh hdhfhfba fdijhbfdsfdsa dshhdffdsujf fuhfdkjshfidsjhfjs dfshjfdsijhfadsiphfasiuhfd fkjdshfijhfipsuafn fdsihjdfskjfdsijf dfsijfhdsjofhajsdnf fhfdkjfhasiugfarw fdshfdsajfhdsjhfsdfsfhhdfdfjdsjfsadkljfdsakljfasodnfjbsdf fdsjfdjklfdsaknfhadsfmasfds adfsjafdaskljfdsijlfsdij
Halo Spartan Assault is a top down shooter that provides more content for Halo lovers. Similar to Dead Ops Arcade in Call of Duty Black Ops, Spartan Assault provides a few hours of fun for those looking to cure a Halo fix. The game looks and sounds like a Halo game with controls that take a few missions to master. For the completionist out there, every mission provides bronze, silver and gold ratings based on your performance which can provide added hours for those looking to max everything out. Overall this is an enjoyable time killer and if you were able to get the game for free on the Xbox One in June then you made off with a steal.
All the same, this game has one special achievement. This is by far the worst twin-stick shooter I've ever played. The developers have done a good job of giving a similar experience to players, in particular fans of the Halo franchise.
There are three key points that greatly spoil the impression of the game. The first is the inability to play local co-op, only multiplayer. Secondly, it is a donation system for buying weapons. And thirdly - the company is very weak, the levels are short and uninteresting.
Conclusion - This game is a failed spin-off, for me. I don’t know who came up with the idea to make a sequel after that, but it remained in oblivion on mobile platforms, where such rubbish is the place. Glory to Ukraine!
A decent game considering it is a port of what originally launched as a cell phone game. As a free game I can't complain but can say that this game isn't worth paying more than a dollar or two for. Feels like a retro arcade 'Gaultlet' style game but with Halo graphics slapped on it. The fact that nothing new was really added in the port, other than a few levels or co-op online play, is very disappointing. It really does show that this game was not designed for these next gen consoles, but again, being that it was a free game for a time then it is worth playing a few levels.
