Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: There are strategy games that push the envelope more than R.U.S.E. does, there's no denying that, but Ubisoft's latest offering is still an enjoyable game. We think ultimately there's going to be less 'subterfuge' and out-manoeuvring then the developers hope for, given this titles pre-disposition...

  • Conclusion: There's 385 for campaign I believe, about 400 for online, and the rest are split between battles and operations. In summary, this is a good game. At its core it is a wartime RTS, and if you're not a fan of that sort of game there is nothing really to draw people in, but definitely worth a rent for...

R.U.S.E. Review

PlayDevil
6 October 2010
  • Summary: " R.U.S.E. " doesn’t quite live up to my own personal expectations. Most of my annoyance comes from the annoying menu which skips around with the slightest touch, but the slowdown, dodgy animation and lack of particularly thrilling action at the lowest level all hurt the game to an extent.

  • Conclusion: RUSE is something different, which is no guarantee that you will like it, but give it a chance and the depth and strategy will soon draw you in. RUSE is an RTS that works, and one that works well. Go for it soldier.

  • Excerpt: In 1944 the Allies undertook a massive campaign of deception against the Germans prior to the invasion of Normandy. Due to “leaked” classified information through diplomatic channels, false radio traffic from non-existent units, and the construction of fake tanks and planes from wood and canvas, the...

RUSE Review

G4
16 September 2010
  • Summary: R.U.S.E. takes a fairly simple WWII real-time strategy game and turns things upside down by adding ways for you to practice trickery and deceit against your enemies. A phalanx of advancing tanks might seem imposing, but the game changes when a single card can deter them, or turn them into decoy...
  • Pros: Streamlined RTS gameplay, Campaign tutorial is comprehensive, R.U.S.E. cards are gamechangers
  • Cons: Controls sometimes frustrate, Not granular enough for hardcore wargamers

  • Summary: R.U.S.E. is a fun and fascinating real-time strategy game, as long as you know which parts of it to invest in and which to skip entirely. It prospers in the competitive arena, putting an intriguing use of bluffs and reconnaissance to good use on expansive maps that will test your ability to control...
  • Pros: Ruses provide a nifty and original strategic element, Slick tabletop interface makes it easy to stay organized, Recon, ambushes, and other elements make for lots of flexibility, Online and skirmish matches are really fun
  • Cons: Bland story characterized by poor cutscenes and inferior voice acting, Campaign is boring and badly paced
