Well, well, well, well, well worth the few pounds it costs. I've spent 19 hours on it, and I still wouldn't trade this game for a social life. Only thing I'd do differently is buy the Spartan bundle, instead of Assault and Strike seperately.

Halo: Spartan Assault is - to be nice - not a very good game. While it brings some ideas from the Halo franchise into a different style of game, it isn't very well done (though these are mostly problems with the mechanics and UI / HUD). I have played many games, but rarely have I seen a game that takes "Minimal UI/HUD" to such an extreme. The only elements visible are those which are ablosolutely necessary to even play the game with some slight degree of competence. One cannot see how much damage is done to their enemies, one cannot see their enemy's health. The game does not even mention the stats for weapons available in-game.

In terms of graphics, the game is very good. It runs smoothly even on my bad computer, and loading screens tend not to take very long. The story is also rather well done, but seems rather obsolete and barely follows what goes on in-game (or vice-versa).

Rating:

Graphics: 9 / 10
Story: 5 / 10
Weapons: 1 / 10
UI & HUD: 1 / 10

Overall: 4 / 10

I have a few issues.
1. The amount of exp you get per mission (just from running through) is barely enough to outfit your weaponry and I couldnt even do it once per game. This game is very short (for obvious reasons) so this is kind of crap and often found myself just sticking with the starting equips and picking up the covenant weapons in game. Not enough currency is given.

2. No checkpoints. Missions are usually short yes but still, I had a few missions I got to the end only to be killed with one shot and have to completely restart.

3. Even if it is a port of the mobile version the story is still pretty crap.

4. Unable to wield energy swords. Like what.

This is a very decent top down shooter. The controls are mostly quite good (except tanks which control extremely poorly), it has a good story and decent graphics. There are some drawbacks, a lot of the challenges are utterly ridiculous and will require you to complete the same mission up to 5 times attacking specific enemies in a very specific way. Needless to say that if you are a completionist, DO NOT GET THIS GAME, you will be frustrated and bored. It is worth for a single playthrough though. Also, if you are constrained by budget, get Spartan Strike, it is very similar but better in pretty much every way. If you are not constrained by budget, get both and play this one first to save best for last.

Assaulting Halo's Striking Spartan...

Short Version :
- This review goes for both Spartan Assult & Spartan Strike -
I recommend getting it on a phone or tablet but it is decently ported to the PC!


Rambling Version :

This is Halo. On the PC. Well it is Halo themed anyway!..

Halo : Spartan Assault and Halo : Spartan Strike are twin stick shooters ported from mobile...
hmm...


- The Idea -

Actually, as a consumer, I don't believe there is inherently a problem with mobile ports, so long as they are a fair price and have been sufficiently upgraded to a decent standard with consideration for the platform. For example, the fact that we don't have our PCs on us when we go to the capper... at least, not all the time...
...I can feel your judgement...

- Immediate Impressions -

Halo : Spartan Strike as well as the previous game, Halo : Spartan Assault, looks pretty good on PC actually... like surprisingly so...
Maybe it's just because I didn't expect too much but daaaaayummm, it's a pretty sweet game graphically if it looks even remotely like that on mobile.
One thing that stood out to me in terms of its presentation was how you could see things moving in the background and foreground. Wraith Tanks and Grunts patrolling the streets below the bridge I was on, while Hornet gunships wizz passed followed closely by the wale of the Banshee fighter aircraft furiously firing their plasma guns. All of this creates a sense of scale. You are in a war that surrounds you and doesn't just form a tity line along your path.

- Why I Played -

These cool tricks aside they are not exactly by any means at all games you play to get immersed in, at least that was the case for me. I enjoyed them most when I wanted to almost mindlessly play something while listening to a podcast or half watch something in the background.

- My Biases -

So here's my situation with those games.
I got both in a bundle during the steam summer sale for like 3 quid and as of writing I have completed Spartan Assault but have only finished 'Operation A' which is about a 6th of the way through Spartan Strike.

- The Amount of Bang -

Each level is like 2, 3 or maybe even 4 minutes long at a stretch. Be aware that I don't have a good concept of time...
The games themselves have a decent length to them. I have about 8 hours put into Assault but I did go back to get gold on most of the missions. Play through it once and it's like 5 hours maybe a bit less...
I can't actually remember...
For what I paid, I'm happy out with that!


- Conclusion -

I had a sudden realisation that I'm sorta writing a blog which is not what I set out to do.
However I also cannot remember what exactly I set out to do either...
Maybe I'll just spend the rest of this review defending my choice to get a windows phone as my last mobile.

Do I recommend this game? Well if you have a windows or an apple phone/tablet it is probably best to get it on something portable. It's a game that clearly had a lot of work put into it visually and the gameplay is pretty grand, even comparing it to PC games, I have played much worse.

FUN FACT : the narrator during the cutscenes, Roland, is voiced by Brian T Delaney. Your man who voices the male protagonist of Fallout 4, neow’ how about them apples.

What I can definitely recommend is this video of me playing Spartan Strike for PC.
See what I did there?

It might give you a taste for the game sher! If you do decide to check it out let me know what you think, feedback is much appreciated!
And just because it doesn't have a great selection of apps doesn't make the windows phone bad!...

A fun halo-themed arcade shooter. It's nothing complex and can be mindless shooting, but the medal and scoring system adds a suprising amount of depth to the game as you try to string together kills and perform special actions to maximize your score and get the best rating on each stage.

You also get simple, short intro movies to each operation (chapters basically) that are a fun reward for advancing in the game. If you enjoy Halo and the occasional arcadey game, you should play this game.

Really good game. A very good mobile to PC port. The controls were tight, gameplay was fun and reactive to what you have done via medals. The plot was decent, there was enough context there to create a meaningful story. The base mechanics are inherent of the twin-stick shooter.

You can manipulate the game's challenge/diffuiculty level via skulls that modify the play style of the game. E.g. The player only has a shield and when that is destroyed then the player dies or dropped weapons have lesser ammo. A nice twist that offers a chance for some replayability and allowing the player to get better at the game.

The enemies come in all different forms and are taken straight out of the Halo games. Watch out for the Brute Chieftan, one-hit-kill. The best enemy is the kamikaze grunt, kill him and it'll drop it's plasma grenades (hopefully raining explody plasma death on it's allies!).

For a Halo game it was really good. Of course it been a small game it was easy to get immersed into the Halo universe. I've played the original Halo trilogy on the Original Xbox and they were a stand out title. I'm very surprised Microsoft haven't released the Halo games on Steam. A FPS like Halo was meant for PC.

Also the regenerating shield makes a return, so it is possible to cower behind some rocks and suck your thumb until your shield becomes active.

I don't really like giving numbered ratings (kinda cliched) but I would reccomend getting this game, especially on sale. You can play through the campaign in a few hours.

A fun arcade Halo game for anybody, whether you enjoy the Halo franchise or not.

The gameplay is, obviously, very arcade-y as I believe it was intended for mobile devices. Being said, the port to PC allows for a very casual, but enjoyable gameplay. Campaign is fun and full of typical Spartan killing sprees against Grunts, Jackals, Elites, and Brutes.

My only gripe is the vehicle control in game. It is extremely terrible and can be quite confusing.

I'd say that this was a good run. It really made me spend some hours into this game, especially as a Halo fan.

Halo: Spartan Assault is a Top-Down Shooter that is a "prequel?" to Halo: Spartan Strike, and as noticed by the gameplay, it is significantly different from all the other Halo First Person Shooters you all know in love. But it is still considered a Halo game in my standards and it definitely deserves some recognition.

As with the story, you play as the characters that are seen in Halo 4, Spartan Palmer and Spartan Davis. As it takes place before the events of Halo 4, you're met with a series of missions in each specific Operation. There are 5 missions in each Operation and there are a total of 6 Operations altogether. Depending on your pacing of the game, it may take you less than a day up to a couple of days at the most to complete this game, depending if you're getting the achievements or not.

Lots of things return from the previous Halo games along with other stuff that are non-existant in Halo: Spartan Assault. One of the most famous things to return is the Armor Abilities. Along with the previous ones returning such as the Active Camoflage, the Autosentry, and Sprint also returns as an Armor Ability. Besides the old ones, there are new Armor Abilities that can be very effective and sometimes overpowered. The Overshield is one of the most overpowered Armor Abilites you can have in the game.

Some of the beloved vehicles return from Halo Wars as well. The Grizzly is the only vehicle from Halo Wars that is drivable, the others like the Hawk, Wolverine, and even the Elephant are just there for asthetics.

No Battle Rifle or some other fan loved weapons don't exist. :(

In my opinion, Halo: Spartan Assault had more replayablility than it did on Halo: Spartan Strike. Even after you finish the game, you still had to do some of the Spartan Ops that are available in every mission, but the only difference is that the Spartan Ops in Spartan Assault made you do more work than in Spartan Strike, sometimes having you to replay that mission more than once and making it tedious just to complete that specific Spartan Op. But after completing them all and earning all the achievements, it really does make you feel like you've achieved something after all that hours you put into (That is, if you're planning to do that).

Probably the only bad parts of this game are the sometimes tedious Spartan Ops and no multiplayer for this version. Since only the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions have multiplayer, it should be fair that the PC version should get multiplayer as well in my opinion.

$5 is worth it in my opinion and it's $1 cheaper than Halo: Spartan Strike, so you're basically geting more bang for your buck for this game. I know the gameplay isn't everybody's cup of tea, but you should still try this, Halo fan or not. If you're not convinced, then this game contains trading cards and Halo theme backgrounds and emoticons that some or most Halo fans want (Including myself).

In conclusion, Halo: Spartan Assault is a very decent Top-Down Shooter as it stands for most Halo fans and everyone else to try.

Should you buy this game?
