There was a time in this industry when real-time strategy was considered a popular genre. And while times have changed and the focus has shifted to action, there are those who still treasure a top-notch RTS experience. If you're of that group, you should probably turn your attention to Ubisoft's R.U.S.E., which is slated to arrive in February. It's not the best-looking game we've ever seen but then again, graphics have never been a strong point in any RTS. This is all about the gameplay and we've heard that developer Eugen Systems will be presenting us with some gameplay innovations...let's hope they succeed.
