Eugen Systems, developers of R.U.S.E. and the popular Wargame series, are back with their latest offering. It's a return to the golden age of real-time strategy games, evoking all the resource management and upgradeable chaos of titles in the Command & Conquer series. But is it accessible to anyone other than the super-hardcore fans of the genre?

Justin McElroy and I sat down to talk tactics, and see if we could wrap our heads around one of the most complex RTS games to come out in a long time. Just so happens it's also one of the prettiest, and you can view it on our YouTube Gaming channel at 1080p with a rock-solid 60 frames-per-second.
