Official description of the game

The hallmarks of RUSE are as follows: firstly, the IrisZoom engine, which allows you to look at the war both from the position of a soldier on the battlefield, and "from heaven", managing huge armies and leading your nation to victory. A comparison with Supreme Commander is very appropriate here. Let's say, how do you like the opportunity to participate in the landing in Normandy, recreated in detail and stretching for 100 virtual kilometers (!) in RUSE, not the position of an ordinary fighter, but an army commander? There you go, good idea.


To defeat the enemy, as the press release assures, it will be possible to use not only your brain and various maneuvers, but also unique skills - for example, activate "radio silence" or "camouflage", thereby hiding your squad from the eyes and ears of the enemy. Or here's to decipher the negotiations of the enemy and reveal the plan of his offensive operation. But the gray matter is still needed - at least in order to tritely cut off the enemy from the supply, take it in a vise and crush it like a bug.


The RUSE single player campaign will offer you to take part in the most prominent battles of the Second World War and take the side of one of the six nations, divided into "Allies" and "Axis Powers". Each has its own unique units and features.
Epic battles, huge levels transferred to the virtual space with due diligence, career advancement from captain to commander-in-chief - all this will be in RUSE. Plus, the online part, represented by both "co-op" and the usual multiplayer battles "against each other", designed for eight players.

Overview: Playability

Well, as we noted earlier, it is very difficult to understand anything from the gameplay of the demo version of the game. RUSE Beta features a multiplayer component and one combat map. The company was not represented, so it is impossible to judge the development of the game plot.


As stated by the developers, the game turned out to be quite large-scale. We have one huge game map, on which all combat events unfold. We want to fly from a bird's eye view and issue commands to the right and left, but we want to go down and enjoy the view of the units swarming below. Although the second time will not be enough, the enemy is also on the alert and we constantly need to be aware of all events.


As in all games of this genre, we will need to capture sources of resources, build bases, barracks, additional buildings and defensive structures. The game does not last forever - we have no more than 30 minutes allotted for everything. So to win, either we earn more points than the enemy, or inflict a crushing defeat on him ...


We invite you to evaluate a part of the RUSE Beta video, where you can see for yourself the quality of this product:

The game has a good variety of combat units, upgrades and all sorts of additional lotions. So fans of RTS will be where to roam. Although the game is made in a somewhat unusual style, the gameplay itself is really addictive. So for all tacticians, getting familiar with RUSE will be very useful.

Review: Game Graphics

As described earlier, RUSE has brought to the RTS genre hitherto unseen scale. The game map is huge - huge territories can be located on it at the same time: cities, rivers, forests and mountains. Generally speaking, almost everything. And of course, the power of modern home PCs would hardly be enough to simulate that way an entire military district. Therefore, one should not be surprised at the rather low, by modern standards, detail.


The whole environment looks like spaced layouts. And this is very clearly visible when closely approaching the game map. The effects of explosions and physical models have only a conditional presence and are far from today's implementations in top projects.


Of course, this does not mean that RUSE system requirements, as well as graphics, will be very low - on the contrary, huge locations will take their toll, as a result of which the load on your system will be truly colossal. But we will talk about this a little further ...

Review: Game resource intensive

For RUSE Beta you will need a Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Athlon 64 x2 5600+ processor and 2 gigabytes of RAM.

As we can see from the overall picture, RUSE puts forward quite serious requirements for modern video adapters. ATI video cards didn't leave Nvidia with a chance. They literally smashed the enemy to smithereens. Even such an "experienced" old man as the Radeon HD 4870 leaves the Ge Force GTX 285 far behind. So the owners of ATI cards this time can be satisfied - the RUSE developers were able to find a rational use for the huge shader potential of the Radeon.

Conclusion: RUSE looks like a very promising product. So those players who have long been hungry for worthwhile RTS strategies will be able to brush up on their skills...
