RUSE Beta Hands-on Preview by IncGamers

That RUSE beta was fun for the people who managed to get in. For everyone else (and those who might have missed any details of the beta), there's the beta hands-on preview.

A short snip from the article:

"Before you say "oh noes, not another WWII RTS", be aware of what they are attempting to achieve with the game. The whole point of RUSE is to trick your opponent into thinking you are doing something you are not. During WWII the allies utilised cunning methods to trick the enemies into thinking they were better equipped than they really were by deploying dummy tanks for example. RUSE adds elements such as this and other tactical features to keep the enemy at bay and lead you to victory." (PC, PS3, R.U.S.E., Xbox 360)

I preordered R.U.S.E. yesterday cann't wait to kick off the 2010 gaming year with it on Feb 3rd
The game is NOT street dated(I asked a Gamestop employee) so that means most of us will have to wait until Feb 3rd to get it(instead of Feb 2nd its current release date). I sure hope it is not delayed because the next 2010 game I am interested in doesn't come out til March 23rd(Just Cause 2)

Hmm, a game based on bluffing? Fake tanks?
Leord  +   1958d ago
It's a very cool idea :)
