OMG. Why did I not know about this before? My newset friend, who is from Minnesota, ordered it online and we are going to play! And it looks absolutely amazing. Halo meets Risk and there’s also different game play options like in the video game. If you ask me, ahhh… I have no words for this ingenius union.
Now. About the game. If you’re like me and haven’t heard much about it, let me bring what I could find into the picture.
Halo is one of the most recognizable and successful video game franchise of all time and boasts a tremendous worldwide presence that continues to grow,” said Trevor Drinkwater, President and CEO of Genius Products. “Fans of all ages are going to love this extension of the popular brand that offers endless game play. B1 Games has created an incredibly innovative game that mirrors the hit franchise and will truly resonate with fans.”
Featuring the same premise and characters as the video game – including Master Chief, A.I. and Covenant – the ‘Halo Interactive Strategy Game’ offers a modular board that can be re-configured to create a virtually limitless game play experience. In recreating the video game’s signature three dimension graphic design, the game pulls fan-favorite elements from Halo 1, 2, and 3 along with music from the video game’s award-winning soundtrack and features unseen exclusive DVD content to enhance game play.
In the game, players will command armies of three-dimensional collectible character pieces for two different levels of play: Heroic for faster, more casual game play and Legendary for more strategic advanced gamers. Fans can follow story lines that expand the Halo experience in Campaign mode or go head-to-head in interactive battle sequences with Slayer or Capture the Flag modes. The battle options are endless with future add-ons of new adventures, vehicles, characters and weapons to expand the experience.
So when I’m done playing the game, in which I am the master chief, and I own it up like I do plans for world domination, I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙂
