It's one of those games that could redefine a genre if it turns out to be successful. The developers clearly have big plans for R.U.S.E. and if you're a fan of the laboring real-time strategy category, you'll definitely want to see what a next-gen RTS looks like. Although it's not exactly the most popular genre of gaming out there, perhaps it only needs an overhaul in terms of visuals and gameplay style; an overhaul that appears to be in full effect here. Strategy followers will definitely want to see if R.U.S.E. manages to live up to the hype.
