R.U.S.E is a Real-time Strategy (RTS) game utilizing a revolutionary deception gameplay mechanic that adds a whole new dimension to its classic faction and resource collection based battlefield action. This mechanic allows and encourages players to engage in elaborate tactics of misdirection, which are as important as any other battlefield tactic to overall success in-game. Additional important features include six historically accurate Allied and Axis nation factions from the conflict, each with specific units, huge maps magnifying the importance of strategy and multiplayer support up to eight players.

Rebirth of the RTS Genre Through Deception
Developed by Eugen Systems, R.U.S.E is a WWII based Real-time Strategy (RTS) game that is set to refresh the genre through the introduction of battlefield deception on a major scale. Of course the existence of deception as a tactic is as old as the RTS genre itself, but the approach to this taken by R.U.S.E is far beyond anything that has come before it. Instead of the one-off ploys and minor misdirections enacted at players' discretion seen in other games, R.U.S.E. Raises deception to the level of an integral battlefield tactic. Deceptive tactics, known as "Ruses," allow players to do things like bluff enemies in order to lead your nation's army to victory, camouflage your troops, lure your opponent with decoy units, sabotage his logistics and more. Ruses are built into the game's mechanics in the form of "cards" that can be played at particular times. There are many of these to choose from and use in accordance with particular scenarios and unit abilities. Just a few of these include:

  • Radio Silence - A way to hides all units in a sector from an enemy intelligence system.
  • Spy Plan - Reveals all unidentified units in the sector and keeps spy units hidden from the enemy detection system as long as they do not leave the affected area.
  • Decryption - Reveals all enemy orders in a chosen sector.
  • Decoy Offensive - Creates 5 decoy units to simulate an actual attack, drawing enemy forces out.
  • Camouflage Net - Hides buildings and production facilities from enemy intelligence resulting in possible flanking scenarios by unexpected forces and unseen resources.
Dimension is another fundamental aspect of R.U.S.E. That highlights the importance of deception. The IRISZOOM Engine, utilized by R.U.S.E. Displays maps a hundred times larger than in traditional RTS games, which raises strategy to an unprecedented scale and gives deception a lot more depth. With the zoom, you are able to both command your units as a chief-in-command and manage your troops at a tactical level as a ground officer; for example by deploying a fake offensive on your opponent’s HQ while carefully hiding your infantry in villages to ambush the surrounding tanks.

Playable Factions and Multiplayer
Because R.U.S.E. Is set during the WWII era, playable factions seen within the game are reflected in the combatants of that conflict. Centered around the European theater, players can expect see nations including: US, UK, Germany, USSR, Italy and France. Each have specific units, strengths, tendencies and tactical deceptive leanings. Also, since fooling a human player is very different than doing the same against AI, in addition to a deep 23-mission single player campaign, multiplayer options play a major role in R.U.S.E., To the tune of up to 8 players getting together and battling it out online across huge battlefields. In fact, multiplayer is the dominant mode available in R.U.S.E. And players will be able to set up games with their own preferences thanks to several parameters (number of available ruses, conditions of victory, game time, 1939, 1942 or 1945 mode, etc.).

5.0 out of 5 stars R.U.S.E is a Great Strategy Game for the Casual Player September 23, 2010
By Mr.
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
R.U.S.E is a great strategy game and a very unique one.
There is no other strategy game like it.

I played more than 50 top RTS games over the past 5 years and R.U.S.E is on my top 10 list.

It is a perfect strategy game for the casual players who doesn't like (or cannot handle) click fest strategy games such as Star Craft II.
You don't have to click fast with the mouse in order to win.
The pace of the game is reasonable and you have enough time to react and win without having to click the mouse like crazy.

R.U.S.E is mostly about strategy and tactics.
There is some economy too but that will take only 10% of your time unlike Star Craft II where is takes 80% of your time.

There are many strategies to explore with the different factions, units and ruses (read game description above).
The best way to enjoy the game is to play skirmish battles vs the AI, since this game mode offers unlimited play time.

The AI plays well in higher difficulties and offers a good challenge.
There are also lower difficulty levels for beginners.

If you haven't played strategy games before, then R.U.S.E. is a great game to start with.
It promotes high level of thinking and problem solving, and it offers great satisfaction.

4.0 out of 5 stars R.U.S.E. - First Impressions October 8, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Leading up to the day Halo Reach came out, I found that I needed something to tide me over until I could blast some covenant. After trading in a couple older games I had, I picked up Tom Clancy HAWX 2 and a game I didn't know much about called R.U.S.E. After spending a good deal of time with the game over the past weekend, I'll give a detailed first impression of the game and let you know if it's worth your time and money investment.

R.U.S.E. is a strategy game. You need to understand that first and foremost. What this means is that you will be moving units around the field and creating them from your base. While it has some of the same mechanics as a Starcraft or Command and Conquer, it is a little different. To begin with, you don't collect resources in the typical sense. Sure, you create supply depots, but once you create them, you can forget about them and not need to worry about collectors to get the cash flow going. If enemies attack you need to defend your supply depots, but for the most part, you'll set and forget them. If you aren't into strategy games though, this game won't change your mind about them. If anything, it's more difficult than most strategy games, but I'll get into that later.

While R.U.S.E. (from here on out I'm dropping the periods) is a strategy game, it does have a story. The game takes place during World War 2 and you control an officer during certain invasions. You'll encounter incompetent leadership, spies, and other page turners that actually make the story a little engaging. It's nothing to write home about, but it's better than nothing. The story isn't where the game really shines though, it's the art of deception that the game brags about constantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep and thoughfull game October 23, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Definitely get this game for the unlimited multiplayer experience you will get from it... or at least for the solo skirmish modes it offers. The AI is quite good on hardest level. I enjoy playing because it is smart like Chess and fun like a video game should be. One clarification is the campaign, well, consider it one long and fancy tutorial that is a must in order to appreciate the depth of the game. The game is called RUSE because ruses are essential element of the gameplay. They are the novelty and innovation of the game. RUSE is a unique game in that sense. So plan on using them all the time and you are guaranteed to hold an edge over your opponent. In fact, ruses are quite realistic as the campaign will teach you that.

Do not be fooled by any bad reviews. They were harsh because the developpers messed up the campaign story and acting. Well, sincerely the story is not boring or stupid nor is the acting mediocre. I would say they are Ok! But this is not why you will be playing it. The true value is the playability and the fun factor you get from its depth, sort of like Chess. RUSE is quite different from say Company of Heores, C&C etc... in many ways. One difference is the units (far more numerous and varied and historic than CoH or any other) move over a huge landscape (think strategy and ambushes in cities and forests...) a bit slowly so that gives you time to SRATEGIZE, BREATH and THINK more. No need to multi task as much. You still need to coordinate and organise your defenses and attacks so you will definitely be busy all the time. Occasionally I take a break to zoom in and marvel at the 3D world unraveling... the bombers, the hills, sea...quite nice with the fast zooming and fluid technology.

So finally, make sure you play the campaign to learn all the properties of the units and how to deploy ruses. I recommend the hardest level if you like some challenge. It will make you tough in the multiplayer arena. This is where the game RUSE really begins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Strategy Game! July 16, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll be dividing the game into sections (modes, units, maps, etc) and be telling you what kind of game this is. I'll start off with the big things that people ask about like the campaign, nations and everything else. I'll be writing a pretty long and detailed review; just read what you want.

Basic info and unique features: First off this is a strategy game staged during WWII, using your mind is key in winning! This is a game which is heavy based on strategy and the "RUSE Cards". Chance and luck doesn't play much in this game, for example if a unit is in range of an enemy unit and you choose to fire upon it, the enemy will be hit there's no chance the shell will miss it. It's different from Close Combat games where the enemy is in range but the shell shot may miss. This game is more "global strategy," though you can still micro manage things. The maps are built on a table, like a war planning table the you see in movies where they're planning there attacks and things, explaining it is hard, watch a video on Youtube of a RUSE battle and you'll understand. It's pretty unique. Also as you zoom out and look at your units they have chips which designates them as units. Zooming in all the way will give you a ground views of the map and will let you see the horizon, zooming out will let you see the table and the surrounding area. Surrounding area is like an office. If you play on the map D-Day the surrounding area will be a ship with hatches and things, really nice.

Campaign: The game has only one campaign, the Allies. There's no option to play a German or Axis campaign, only the Allies. But you can in 4 missions choose to use German units, but you'll still be on the Allies' side. So you will be able use German units, but you don't have a full 20 missions long campaign.
