As someone who played R.U.S.E for around 200~ hours, I adore this game. It is everything ruse was, but far far better.

1. very very good stat cards tell you exactly how a unit will perform.
2. Big open maps that allow you to move around and attack/defend from a number of locations.
3. Standard unit selection and order process makes it easy to pick up for any RTS gamer.
4. A exceptionally pretty game that also runs smoothly

-----------------------------------------------------
This game isnt without flaw, there are a few things that annoy me.

1. Camera doesn't always want to pitch up as far as I want
2. terrain details are not always blatent, which means you will sometimes mispostion your units.
3. Kind of confusing for the first 1-2 hours.

Amazing game.
If you're into wargames, strategy, and a serious challenge, this series of games (this is the first of 3, so far) is for you. You can see how many hours I've put into this one... it's that good.

Woww,
This game is a RTS in all its essence. Ok you don't need to come from Harvard to get to understand basic unit movement and functions. Although understanding how all units can be strategized and played through for minimum casualty or maximum efficiency is really what makes this game shine through and through. The AI is really decent, more in tune with trigger functions and time base functions but one in all the solo game gets really freaking intense as you progress through solo modes and requires you to develop new strategy and so understand how the game is played as well as developing deeper understanding and meaning for each type of unit you can use and in what situation.

Do you get kicked or asked to leave public MPs because you are a low level, yes you are. But you can always open your own public game and you will get to play MP games regardless. Although I strongly suggest to finish all Solo games mode first. It is like a pre-ambule to what is asked in MP mode and really far from easy to grasp a total win at firt sight.

I am not a RTS fan per se, yet, I am enjoying this game.
Perhaps I enjoy the gameplay mechanics and strategy deepens the game overall to the point where winning is THE greatest reward long time not seen in a vast majority of video games?!?!

This game is meant for people who not only enjoy RTS but also enjoy extreme realism, if you are not a fan of either of these then wargame is not for you, that being said I myself loved this game it is not only an amazing RTS but also the most realistic RTS I have had the pleasure of playing and I would highly reccomend it.

10 out of 10 stars

Quite an amazing game. I recommend that you buy it, and it was TOTALLY worth 20 bucks. The graphics are amazing, the troop diversity makes the game much more challenging, and honestly, it gave me an overall good time. Trust me. It will give you a good time, too.
