Orange - R.U.S.E Review

Orange - Real-time strategy (RTS) games have never fared well on consoles. Their home is on the PC where there are enough buttons on the keyboard – and ease of movement with the mouse – to cope with the ton of micromanaging tasks that make up the richness of the genre. There have been many attempts to make a successful strategy game on consoles and all have failed in some respect or other. R.U.S.E. however has finally cracked it.

No Move review...
interesting trend by the media. Seems as if they think that if they ignore it, it will go away.

According to Gamespot the Move support isn't all that great. Not sure what other sites say though.

"Unfortunately, this alternate method of managing battles is far inferior to using a standard gamepad. To zoom in and out, and to rotate the camera, you hold the T button and maneuver the Move controller, which is much less precise than using an analog stick. Furthermore, the placement of the main buttons for selecting multiple units at once and bringing up the order interface make using the motion controller somewhat awkward. The requirement for you to keep pointing the controller at the screen at all times, even during cutscenes, further rubs salt in this wound; should you rest your arms during a cinematic, the game will pause the scene and tell you to move the controller back in range of the camera. For the best experience, stick to a standard controller and forget playing R.U.S.E. with motion controls.

Developers are being, for lack of a better word, retarded. Despite being the superior motion device, Tiger Woods, RUSE, and RE5 are either misusing the Move or implementing it all wrong.

Seems like Sony's first party has to be the ones pulling Move through again.

And other sites actually mentioned that Move works well in RUSE - but did not include it in the review criteria - because the other platform did not have motion controller support.
