- Summary: R.U.S.E. is a real-time strategy game that allows players to bluff their enemies to lead their nation to victory, controlling the action using views that range seamlessly from the heart of the battlefield to the full theatre of war. Players are plunged into the action thanks to the exclusive IRISZOOM Engine which offers an intuitive interface that allows for smooth, rapid transitions from a birds-eye view of the entire conflict, down into the heat of the battle and vice versa. In R.U.S.E., players use their brain as the ultimate weapon, fighting a war of perception, where the ability to deceive and mislead the enemy determines success. A first in a strategy game, R.U.S.E. promises to reinvigorate the genre by using deception to give new-found depth to the game play. [Ubisoft]… Expand
10All joking aside, I do not know what game the critics were playing, and what they think gaming is.
R.U.S.E. is first and foremost (as with all games today) a multiplayer experience. It has been designed as such, with fantastic dialogue between beta testers (of which there were many) and impeccable attention to detail, gameplay, and realism.
The single player campaign lacks the fast paced run and gun people are use to, but the heavily strategic and tactical gameplay of multiplayer absolutely shines. The art of deception the game is based around gives players an endless multitude of strategies to fool foes, interact with team mates and drag you in to a gaming experience you won't forget.

If you are not into RTS games, this one will be a miss. The visuals are exciting at first, but camera view is confusing. The controls are not apparent for new players and also can be confusing. I wouldn't recommend this over other RTS games like Command and Conquer which was more fun to me.… Expand
4RUSE on PS3 was horrible. I got RUSE on PC first, even played through the betas on PC. Only took me a few minutes of playing RUSE on PS3 to see that it had been cut down to the bare minimum. On RUSE i would play a lot of single player against the computer to hone my skills and being confined to 60 minutes and only 4 players was very annoying. Plus playing the game with the controls on PS3 can be challenging. Bottom line buy the game . . . . on PC.… Expand
