R.U.S.E. is a Real-Time Strategy Game That Does Justice to Its WWII Setting

R.U.S.E. is a 2011 real-time strategy video game that puts you in the role of a WWII commander. There is a campaign which takes you through a number of historic WWII battles. R.U.S.E. is available to play on Windows, Mac, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3; I have personally played both the PS3 and Windows Steam versions. The Steam version is, of course, much better, but the console version was surprisingly playable, too. The game works mostly like a traditional RTS, except it incorporates special abilities called “ruses” which give the players on the battlefield various advantages. The game includes units from every European faction from World War II, and you can play as all the factions in the game’s skirmish mode.RUSE 2RUSE 1

The game is getting old now, but it’s aged well. In a time where few games are being made anymore that do well to represent the RTS genre, it’s never bad to go back and try some old games. If you can find it, pick up R.U.S.E.  sometime and see how you like it.
