    It's good to see them expanding Halo gaming beyond the usual FPS format again.

    Not really. Halo Wars was an RTS, and Spartan Assault is a shooter.

    Ah ok, the mini vid gave me strong RTS vibes.

    :wtf: A game spinoff too many. Focus on Halo 5 and a Halo 2 Remake.

    I've no doubt that 343 is focused primarily on Halo 5, while Vanguard Entertainment likely does all of the real development work on Spartan Assault. 343's role on this game is probably more conceptual - approving or denying ideas, and offering support when needed.

    Spartan Assault is out now, at a price of $6.99 (same for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 versions). However, in the US, the Windows Phone 8 version is only currently available for Verizon devices. It will be available for all Windows 8 phones next month.

    Link

    Is anybody here getting it?

    I will. I don't have a Windows phone myself but I installed W8 on my dad's laptop so I'll dl it once it's available over here.

    Did you purchase it? How's the gameplay?

    Nope. I don't have Windows 8, nor a Windows phone or tablet. I would like to try it, though.

    Average user rating at Metacritic is 8.4, based on 9 ratings. Go to the site here to read a couple reviews.
