The ultimate strategy game (a R.U.S.E. review)

Master Wolf here! The game I be reviewing today, has to be one of my all time favorite RTS game that I have ever played (and get 3 other games to boot during a sale on Steam). It really does have you be the master of deception when it comes to fighting your enemy. I am talking about R.U.S.E.

This Real Time Strategy game takes RTS to a whole new level with high tense battles and amazing detail to the maps. The game main strength is through RUSE, which range from decrypting enemy orders to camo your base from enemy view. Not only you can listen in or see what your enemy would do, you can also send in Decoy units to a sector to make the enemy believe you are assaulting them in that area while you flank the enemy.

The game follows Major Sheridan from North Africa to Germany fighting against the Nazi's and the spy codenamed 'Promethius' who is giving intel to the Nazi's about the Allies plans and orders. Now I won't go spoil the ending because this is an RTS game that you have to own! I really do love the idea of using Deception to confuse your enemy. The one thing that I will say is that it will take time to learn about each of the RUSE's you have available to you and what it will do as well as how long the RUSE will be active.

Other than that, I must say that this game is truly an amazing find and I will be happy to play it many time over. I can't wait to see if Ubisoft will continue this, as this is my new all time favorite RTS game alongside with Company of Heroes.

Final Verdict: 5/5
