This review is based on the Windows Phone 8 version running on a Verizon branded Nokia Lumia 928.
Halo: Spartan Assault is a twin-stick shooter for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. Ironically enough, at launch the game does not support input that utilizes analog sticks. Though, the Windows 8 version does support keyboard and mouse play. Spartan Assault is a game that is boasted as having a 2 hour campaign and carries along with it a price tag of $6.99. For the first month of release on Windows Phone 8 it is exclusive to Verizon in the United States. Everyone else in the world is able to get it as of the launch date. This leaves many users out of luck as AT&T is typically the carrier of choice for Windows Phone.
