Just don’t attempt to play without reading up on the manual first. Some overly aggressive AI and ten buckets of troops at your helm leaves you feeling like you’re juggling chainsaws, eggs and kitchen knives all at once in the early hours. You can see what needs to be done but can’t put everything in motion until every pad shortcut has been mastered. When that’s done, though, RUSE and its smarts crawl right to the top of the console strategy pile to keep Ubisoft bedmate Endwar company. No ruse – just the truth.
