Rated 9 out of 10 by thrilofthekill Very stratigic
In my view this game is ridiculously unappreciated. If you like real time strategy games then you will love this one. It will challenge you, trust me. I liken it to a modem day version of chess. You have to be thinking three turns ahead. You have to use the terrain to your advantage, know your strengths and absolutely watch, maintain and expand your economy. Additionally, active reconnaissance is the key for survival. Its fast, hardcore and multi-tiered action that requires you to constantly pay attention to the situation.. Make the wrong decision or lose focus at the wrong time whether at the beginning of the game or toward the end and you will find yourself in ruin. Plus it offers a variety of game modes, Campaign, Battle mode ((skirmishes) both AI and online multiplayer and Operations which put in you specific difficult situations.,. There is real strategy required for this game so if that's what you like, you will really love this game. Give it a chance. I would absolutely love to see a RUSE II.
Rated 0 out of 10 by SpaceGhosty! Going to be best RTS to hit consoles yet.
First off ide like to adress LTlowery for saying all the game is is to build AA and rush. that is completely innacurate. you dont even need AA you can put camoflauge on your base and Aircraft wont even be able to see it lol. you just gave this game a bad preview because you probably sucked at the beta and are a nooby player that doesnt take time to learn the game. This game is amazing i have played the beta since it came out and it still isnt old. You have tons of options for units and streategys. Also the game offers a nice varity of nations to play as (france, Italy, USA, Germany, Britain, Russia.) they all have their own unique units. also the game controls are very smooth and simple and the graphics are absolutely STUNNING.
Rated 8 out of 10 by SilentKillr69 Great gameplay, a fresh RTS
This game is the best strategy game that has been made for the xbox since Halo Wars no doubt. I am not comparing it to halo wars however, as they are completely different games. RUSE has immense numbers of units engaging each other with an even larger battlefield. This large battlefield however does not slow RUSE down, as the zooming in/out to view the entire battlefield or individual units is easily learned and mastered. This immense scope of the battle give the player the feeling that what they do does make a difference in the whole battle. I would highly recommend this game to anyone that is looking for a quality strategy game that takes skill and intelligence.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Boring as knowing DESTOYER 96 Looks Great
I have played the multiplayer beta... It is the best strategy game I've seen in a long time. I recently got company of heroes because the games look so similar. COH is great but R.U.S.E makes it look small and undetailed. I cant wait for it to come out on the 360. COH is good Skirmish against the AI but I want to play with my 360 friends and this looks perfect... But the one thing I hate is the selection of RUSES. You could come up with a great ambush and BAM! Your oponent uses a RUSE and he quickly avoids the attack and bomb your hiding troops... But I could live with it. Thats the only thing I could dislike about it and I cant wait for it. I give its previews a 9.7/10
Rated 10 out of 10 by Airheads001 AMAZING
This game is so much fun! First off the AI are great, you can set them to three levels of difficulty, easy, medium, and hard. There is also their profile to set which is how they play through the game, like if you want them to be more defensive or if you want to make them use mostly air support and a lot others. This though is only battles you have with AI, there is also a campaign with a story line where you do missions and its a lot of fun. Another is multiplayer where you can have battles with other people or there are co-op missions you can do with your friends which are historical battles. The controls are amazing, they are very easy to use. The graphics are fantastic, I love them. There is a zooming system that allows you to zoom out all the way to see the whole battlefield and your units have icons and are stacked so it is easier to see, or if you zoom in all the way your units and actual sized like they would be in real life. So far I counted, there are 21 maps which look great. Their are also things called Ruses which are battle strategies, like "Radio Silence" which makes all your units unable to be seen on the map for a limited time, or the coolest thing is fake units, you can set up fake tanks and other things to trick your enemy thinking your going to destroy them. This game is amazing and fun game and is a must buy!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Xthebell Great Strategy Game
Ruse is my favorite strategy game for my 360. It has 3 different periods and 6 different armies to choose from plus dlc that adds another one. The controls are great and make it easy to create and move and army or respond to an attack. When it say you can zoom out you can basically up into a satelite view of the map and back down to right next to your arttilery or tanks. The sound is amazing with surround sound. It actually sounds like your there. The graphics were pretty good. They could only improve if i had an lcd tv. I would highly reccomend this game to any strategy fan
Rated 10 out of 10 by WarGenneral Best strategy game ever played!!!!!!!
This game is one of the funnest strategy games i have ever played totally worth buying it has a great lasting effect because when you have nothing else to do you always find yourself putting the disk in the A.I.'S are really helpful the campain is great. This is a must buy for people who love strategy games it really makes you think how to destroy your enemy with out making it easy to figure out the ruses you can use are like actual war tactics while the zoom ability is great for figuring out what the enemys doing. All in all great game
Rated 10 out of 10 by Gibson Best RTS Game I've Played
Yeah, R.U.S.E. is the best Real Time Strategy game I've ever played! It has a "good-sized" story/campaign, and many other features to make you play over and over! But when you finally get tired of Operations or Battle Mode, you can grab a friend and play R.U.S.E Online! There is a ranked match system, an "Open Battle" mode, and private match options! You can play cooperatively or competitively with up to Eight players in Huge battlefields ranging in climate, weather, and even time of day! This game never gets old!
Rated 0 out of 10 RUSE
The first time I saw this game, I knew i was going to like it. Its the best strategy game that ive ever seen and it has lots to it. Its long and complex(,aking it funner and more challenging) and it looks like its going to be a big hit. The different amount of troops and things you can make and the ruses you can use make the game more realistic to real war and lets you think about how to use strategy while playing. Ubisoft, keep up the good work. Cant wait for this game to come.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Gibson Really Fun For A Selective Audience!
This game is really fun, to me, it is top of the line in its genre! Although I find this game very fun, I can see how someone who doesn't particularly like "free-camera strategy" games, or WWII games, would not want to play it. But, for someone who loves this kind of genre, it will become a new favorite! It has a good story, it forces you to think strategically and makes you think "out side the box"! I would highly recommend this game to any strategy game fans!
