Unfortunately as the Single Player Campaign progresses the game's mechanics begin to breakdown. RUSE is a game that wants you to look at the "big picture" but ends up forcing you to micromanage on the ground. The combat revolves around the tried and true "rock, paper, scissors" concept. Here this translates as tank units kill infantry units who kill anti-tank units who then kill tank units. This is then reapplied to air units. Pretty simple right? Well not entirely.
RUSE is many enjoyable things but a historically accurate or realistic war game it is most defiantly not. Many of your units, which were historically very versatile platforms, are represented in this game as part time assets that must be babysat so as not to turn into total liabilities. It's very shocking the first time you see armored, self propelled anti-tank units with 88mm cannons and 7.92mm machine guns retreating from Infantry advancing across open terrain because they're "rock" to the infantry's "paper". This creates an environment where the tactical level becomes a burden which must be borne instead of a fun challenge to overcome. The player will also note with frustration that the developers have thrown any and all semblance of historical accuracy out the window at the strategic level as well.Read more ›
The premise of the game is like chess, except with the old adage from Sun Tsu of "All Warfare is Based Upon Deception". This game is almost a tactics simulator--do you go for cutting off the enemy supply lines, inhibiting his ability to make new units? Do you use feints or "Ruse's" to trick the enemy you're attacking somewhere you're not? Is that enemy armor attack real that's about to hit your base, or fake, even though your scouts do not report any enemy armor bases? Do you go for the heart, destroying the enemy HQ directly inhibiting his command/control and logistics?
I love this game, Well done Ubisoft! Thank you for this sleeper hit!
-Amazing graphics/detail during combat
-Thousands of different strategy combinations with RUSE system
-"Micro" type players may be disappointed. This game is less about individually microing every unit (ala Starcraft) and more about thinking before you act (chess), and creating a winning strategy.
The reviewer that likened the gameplay to rock paper scissors is only correct in the basest sense. One on one (like anti-tank vs. tank) one type of unit does win, but rarely, if ever, does that occur on the battlefield. It is always a combination of unit types used together to accomplish objectives. For example: a grouping of five infantry, two medium artillery pieces and four light tanks VS. An anti-tank pillbox 3 infantry and 2 machine gun nests. In addition, every nationality has very different types of units to produce with different prices. Combine these two aspects and you have a complex and engaging game.
So, the campaign is a bit weak and the cutscenes are really pitiful with awful voice acting. The main issue with the campaign is that it's so linear. If you lose, you must replay the same map. If you win you go onto the next one. That said. The campaign is a great tutorial that should be played fully and this can be done in one day if you like.
The community for this game is small and it can be difficult to find games during day and night. This is not so much the game's fault as it is the gamers. Once you do connect with a ranked match be prepared to have some serious fun and get beat early and often: the ones that do play alot have their strategies and they are good.Read more ›

If you get it cheap it's OK. NOT an action game. It's also pretty nerve racking. All in All it's a pretty cheese-y game you can probably find a better one.Published on August 8, 2013 by dirty
