A good test for RTS games is to think how popular or enjoyable the game would be if it had basic graphics (think 1995). In some cases (like Civilization or Starcraft) it would be just as good, in other cases (like the XCOM remake) it would make it pretty obvious that they're just a basic RNG hiding behind pretty 3D models. To call that thing a strategy game is an insult to the word "strategy". At best it involves some tactics, and (given how bad the AI is) you don't even need much of that.
