Edge: Ruse Review

Edge: You play as a general in Ruse, observing the ebb and flow of battle from a command tent, miles from the action. You pore over maps punctuated by counters that represent Allied and Axis units inching forward and backward in smooth, abstract movements. But, simultaneously, you also play as an observer on the frontlines, panning the camera around your troops as they sprint for cover, catching blood spatters and tank treads in realtime, as your broad-sweep instructions are carried out in agonising detail.

Lol, they pretend Move doesn't exist, if they did they may score it less for "convoluted control schemes".

fooltheman2654d ago

haha indeed...
This sucks... They can't pretend that the ps3 version is the same as the Xbox version

-Ikon-2653d ago

I expect many sites to ignore MOVE and say ps3 and 360 version are the same on multiplates

WELL IN THE REVIEW IT STATES THEY TESTED THE X360 VERSION, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE HANDS ON WITH THE MOVE VERSION, LOL

ja thats what i was thinking. they would probably update the review, or just ignore it

dirigiblebill2653d ago

You don't think they reviewed the Xbox 360 version simply because they were only sent the Xbox 360 version to review, then? I'm a reviewer, and I know *I* wasn't given the option. Just a thought.

I don't understand reviewers. When a game has 1 frame rate less than the other they make different reviews so they can score one better than the other. But when a game has a completely different control scheme which affects entirely the way you play it, and the experience they totally ignore it.

Totally agree with you. So lets just add this to the reviews by IGN, JoyStiq, Eurogamer all of whom had reviewed only the 360 version. It seems the corporate reviewers have a separate agenda of their own. I mean why can't you review the PS3 version as well? Particularly when it does have a completely different control scheme option? I refuse to believe that a pointer control system provided by the Move is not making a difference (for the better) when playing this RTS. Colonel179 said it perfectly, what about all those reviews marking ps3 version down because of graphical 'shortcomings' that wasn't even visible to the naked eye, why are these reviewers all silent now? Are they afraid of scoring the PS3 version higher?

AS we expected... The media will at first ignore the Move...

And when the cross platform sales suddenly shows that the gaming public ignored the ignoring of Move, then the so-called gaming media will know that they don't have the affect on buying decisions that they though.
