About This Game

R.U.S.E™ is a one-of-a-kind 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 will be 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, your brain is your ultimate weapon as you fight a war of perception, where your ability to deceive and mislead your enemy determines success. A first in a strategy game, R.U.S.E reinvigorates the genre by using deception to give new-found depth to the gameplay.

Steps on how to R.U.S.E.
1.) Get some friends to play with you
2.) Beat the bots on hard
3.) Think you're the best at this game
4.) Join an online match
5.) Build some supply depots
6.) Sit there helplessly while they are blown up
7.) Realize the only people who play this game are already Gods at it
8.) Continue playing against bots for the rest of your life, and never exit the safety of a private match.

Good fun with friends and randoms, a true test of skill in multiplayer plus a fun campaign.

10/10 would use 500 katushwas to destroy one GI unit again

Since it´s common to write a review I will do it too.
I play this game since nearly 4 years.. I tried to switch to other games but I wasn´t succeed yet^^
Since many of you guy´s say there is a bad community which makes it unadorable to play it with fun.. Nope. ^^Only thing I can say is that you have to play it with friends and it´s much fun.
There are many friendly clans who like to train new player´s because it´s not possible to get good only with your own.
There is a R.U.S.E Youtube-Channel named : StrateJ | It might help you to get good.
Even if it´s an old game I never get bored.. :p


If you wanna play just add me :p
