Halo Wars was horribly over simplified and Supreme Commander 1 overly complex for some and had graphical issues when unit capacity was maxed.
However, at last we have an AMAZING rts title worthy of recognition, RUSE. It had a practically non-existant awareness/marketing campaign and being strategy wont even be noticed by the majority of console gamers.
However for rts fanboys it strikes perfect balance between game balance and strategic oppurtunity/manipulation whilst it still proves understanding enough for new gamers to this genre to understand the mechanics and get to grips with the game quickly.
Campaign is great, particularly for those new to strategy games, eases you in mission by mission. Gradually gives more units to you and more unit types with progressive difficulty. Around mission 14 missions get difficult and really require some thinking to get round each scenario.
Online is great, easy to get into casual games with no connection/lag issues at all. Ranked games are a little harder to find but not impossible, just need to be on during peak play times to get instant game. Both modes offer great longevity and progession in terms of rank
As you can see, i love this game. Cant reccommend it enough, it is simply THE BEST RTS on console by far.
