Quoting Movemodo's Jamie O'Neill:
"Considering that the PS3 has not been inundated with RTS games, it's pleasing to see R.U.S.E. demonstrate how motion controls can complement the genre. The use of the Move motion controller's pointer supplements console RTS control brilliantly, making selecting and directing units faster and more decisive. Its incorporation of a 'spy hunt' story is engaging and the visual presentation of a map, which can be scaled between a distant camera and close-up detail, is technically impressive. The strategy of the ruse cards, combined with the Move controls, elevate R.U.S.E. above the PS3 RTS battlefield."
