I think it was kind of stupid that the Flood is being included as we Humans wern't supposed to know about the flood until Mr. Jacob Keys and Mr. Johnson an co. stumbled upon it. And it doesn't really make sense that the Forerunner's would put the Flood away from one of the rings.

I would be happier if you could play as the Flood, but as you can't, I'm pretty sad...

Yeah but I still find it strange that Bungie would have let Ensemble (spelling?) include the flood.

It doesn't make sense with the Halo Timeline, but whatever. Just kill some zombies and be happy.

It is between Halo 2 and Halo 3.

No, Halo wars takes place a couple decades before Halo: Combat Evolved. All the SPARTAN II's are in Mark IV MJOLINIR armor. It takes place long before Halo 2 or 3.

How is it stupid that the forunner kept the flood on a ring? Obviously that would keep them from spreading.

You would think that the Forunners could set the Sentinals to kill all the leftover flood after the Halos were activated.

i think that you could play as them in the campaine because in command and conquer 3 at the end level of both stories you play unlockable SCRIN ALIEN FORCES . mabey its the same or mabey it would be too laggy but i guess we'll find out wether we like it or not

Kinda bringing back a long dead topic here but it's less than a month!

Halo Wars takes place in 2531, which is twenty years prior to the events of Halo: Combat Evolved. Like you all said, it doesn't make sense for the Flood being in the game considering they weren't found on Halo until 2552.

There had to have been some reason but what it is, I'm not sure. I think it would have been best to keep just the Covenant. But I haven't played the full game yet so I'm not sure if the rumors are true.

I got to the level with the flood and as far as I'm concerned, we discovered the flood years before halo ce now.........Eh cause they recognize the flood as they fight them, they take record of them to.

But I have to pass the level, I saw the flood, fought some, then had to go somewhere.

Well, they find it but they don't know what it is. The HUD recognizes it as an infection but that's about it. I beat the level but haven't gotten to play the one after.

It's a good game, I just don't like timing the missions. I'm the kind of person that likes building up a huge base and huge army and then coming over and wreaking havoc on the enemy. You can't do that in Halo Wars.:(

it does make sense, the spirit of fire was still on its journey back to earth during halos 1,2 & 3. With no reactor to power the light drive and no long range coms, of course the rest of the UNSC had never heard of the flood.

What i find odd is that you spend barely any time on Harvest, one act on Harvest then you go galavating round the galaxy chasing the covanant. Then you spen half the game on and in the shield world.

You've got a good point about the Spirit of Fire, Jam Jar. Com disruption along with the core being offline would stop any communication whether outgoing or incoming. Now I know the question on everyone's mind that hasn't finished the game, what happened to the Spirit of Fire.

I wish I could continue playing right now. Damn.
