I played the Halo Wars demo and loved it. I have seen many people comparing BFME2 to Halo Wars on other message boards. Since I like LOTR's lore/medieval fantasy more than Halo's lore/Sci-fi fantasy (I still like Halo's lore though), I'm considering to buy BFME2 (being an old game makes it cheap too [used for $20 or so], so it is a plus imo). I read there was a demo for BFME2 on XBL on EA's site but I couldn't find it. So a few questions:
1. How are the controls? Do you use the joystick clicks (I can't do them due to weak hands; health issue)? 2. How complex/deep it is? 3. How long do matches/skirmishes last? 4. How good is the DLC? 5. Do many people play it online now? 6. Is framerate a big issue? I heard it is to some people. Is it fixed/patched? 7. How does it compare to Halo Wars overall? (Optional)

I am not familiar with Halo Wars(dont have a 360) but i really want to play it. I dont have the game for 360 but i love the PC version.
1. Cant answer dont have a 360, The UI is fairly simple and effective so i think it would translate fairly well to a 360. 2. It is a fairly complex game. About average complexity for RTS. It has a much more uniqye reasource and tech structuring. There arent any other games that play out like it. 3. Skirmishes last between 8 to 20 minutes, usually around 10 minutes long. I have had a few online matches that lasted a half hour. 4. Dont know what that is, probably cause i dont have a 360 5. Lots on PC dont know about 360 6. It isnt for PC dont know about 360 7. Dont know for sure but from what i have seen of halo wars, i would think that there is more variety in BFMEII because you have 6 factions with 8-12 UNIQUE units and 3-7 different heros.
If i were you and if you have a PC that can run it, I would pick up the Anothology, It includes BFME, BFMEII, and ROTWK(expasion) as well as some bonus content. You could probably get it for between 20-50$. That is great value if your PC can run it.
