Gamersmint : If you are an RTS fan, then you probably have your calendar booked for the next couple of years, courtesy of Starcraft II’s release. R.U.S.E might have slipped under the radar for most people (including me), thanks to Ubisoft’s nonexistent promotion. (Hell, I didn’t even know the game was releasing this month till I was asked to review it). Eugen Systems, the minds behind the critically acclaimed Act of War aims to reinvent the genre with the introduction of a Ruse system that encourages players to think differently and employ deceptive skills to win over the opponent.
The concept isn’t new but an entire game built around it is. Is it worthy of a break from Starcraft II or are we the ones being deceived?
