Devolution: Real-time strategy

Atomic PC: We take a look at how the real-time strategy genre has a tendency of taking one step forward and two steps back.

"But while StarCraft II stands as a shining example of how well a traditional formula real-time strategy title can still be near-unanimously well received by the gaming populace, I don't see it as a step in the right direction for the RTS genre. Certain reviewers have called the game StarCraft 2.0 - a statement simultaneously used as an accurate depiction of the game's evolution (or lack thereof) from the original formula and praise of StarCraft II's honouring of its roots. But a game honouring its roots or paying homage to what has gone before is one thing, while more or less cloning preceding titles is a problem I have across genres." (Company of Heroes, PC, R.U.S.E., Starcraft II)
