About the 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.

A nice top down RTS game.

The graphics are cool.
The sound is cool.
The controls are simple.

This is a unique RTS game, with a top down view but you scroll right out and it is like a battle plan table you are actually playing.
You scroll right in and watch the vehicles actually driving around and shooting. Right to the detail, and it is really nice.

The game's singleplayer I never played much, so I cannot comment on it.
The game's multiplayer I can comment on, because that was all I liked to play, and from this I have many hours.

It is nice to play and look at and build up because it is a unique building to get resources game and one of the best RTS game's around.

Worth a buy? Yes without a doubt.

Ruse is innovative strategy game in a genre that has been the same as long as it has existed. It's design is fresh and everything is well done. Some people seem to think that its lack of micromanagement is a bad thing, and that its unrealistic, but I beg to differ. What kind of commander has time to tell each little unit what to do? They don't. Its up to the people on the ground to micromanage. To any fans of RTS or WWII, I would highly recommend this game.

If you are a fan of RTS (real time strategy) games the R.U.S.E. is a must have.

R.U.S.E. is a simplified version of the famous Wargame Series.

Pros

-No limit cap

-8 players max

-All nations (excluding DLC nation) are equally powerful in personal proffesion (Italy is great for spamming and rushhing, United States is equally balanced all around, Germany contains extremely powerful units but they are very pricey ect)
In other words all nations balance each other out.

-Free Nuclear War DlC (gives nuclear gamemode that contains nuclear units)

-High replayable action

-Same creators of the Wargame series

Cons

-Not as many units like Wargame, but does contain decent amount of units, its not like 3 units per bulding

{Updated Added Con}
-Multiplayer lacks many online players. Rank matches are dead. Public player matches contain mostly players who been playing the game for hours (in other words too many elite players, rookies don't stand a chance.)

-Japanese Nation available for $9.99 is out of balance and contains a very over powered units that can and does leave fellow players without much of a fair fight.

-DLCs are over priced...

-No R.U.S.E. 2... not much of a GAME con but still why :(

-Level Cap 100

Intense campaign, Seat grasping battles, well speculated gameplay, and easy to manage micro units
this game gets a

10/10 when Japan is either on my team or not in the match at all

and a

9/10 when Japan is against me.
