R.U.S.E. (PS3)

  • Excerpt: Wars are won by telling lies (now that I think about it, they are often started by lies as well). Lie about having the biggest bombs and the opposition might just call it quits to fight another day. Lie about the number of soldiers, the range of your weapons or the movement of your troops, and the opposition will shake in their army boots. It’s as simple as that. R.U.S.E. is a strategy game than plays heavily on the lying part of war.

World War II Meets Micro Machines

  • Conclusion: If you enjoy strategy games, you'll enjoy R.U.S.E. . The best part of the game is unfortunately riddled with balancing issues and saddled with a dead community. A shame really, especially for an overlooked genre.

R.U.S.E Review

ME Gamers
6 October 2010
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is When I first saw the promotional videos for R.U.S.E, I was a bit confused. It showed two stern-faced men poring over a touch-screen table, playing a strategy game. Was it an upcoming game for the iPad? Some sort of Windows 7 launch ploy? Sadly it was neither – R.U.S.E turned out to be just another strategy game that has a few good features to boast about, but not enough to keep you playing for too long.

R.U.S.E. : The Art of Deception

Digital Chumps
19 September 2010
  • Conclusion: R.U.S.E. is a good game that has some flaws. The one thing that Ubisoft and the devs were counting on to entertain (the R.U.S.E. option) pays off really well in the end. The rest of the gameplay elements aren't overly different from what we've seen before in an RTS, which makes R.U.S.E. simply good and not great.

  • Excerpt: First teased as a revolutionary war game you control with your fingertips, the enigmatic R.U.S.E. has finally emerged as a seemingly-ordinary RTS for the PC and consoles, with optional Move support for the PS3. Can Ubisoft's next step in the strategy genre outwit your expectations? One of R.U.S.E.'s wisest ploys was keeping its mission-to-mission narrative on the light side, as what little story you do get isn't very good.

  • Excerpt: Real-time strategy aficionados typically stick to the PC, and for good reason. But if you’re looking for a competent RTS with a bit of a twist, and are willing to deal with a mediocre campaign story and a few small mechanical shortcomings,

  • Excerpt: Real Time Strategy is a gaming genre that has never really flourished in the console space, mostly because adapting the extensive control scheme to a simple controller is difficult to do for developers. Eugen Systems through that they would try their hand at that task with R.U.S.E., a World War II based strategy game published by Ubisoft for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 (also on the PC). The narrative in R.U.S.E.
