1 Lies & deception from our French friendsRicho6666 | 23/09/2010 | See all Richo6666's reviews (1)Firstly, this is in no way a revolution for RTS, more like a step back. The fundemental selling points of this game are a big lie! The much touted IRISZOOM enegine billed as giving us maps "hundred times larger than in traditional RTS games" is just a lie. The biggest maps are tiny, right from the off you can see where you enemy's base is, this makes a mockery of the entire RUSE premise. What is the point of all the tactical Ruses when you only have a small scetor between you and your enemy? What is the point of a fake army when the is no room or flank to send them down. What is the point of fake bases when there is no extra space to put them down away from you actual base. What is the point? The controls are clumsy, you can't even get a tank to face the right direction, no halt command, very limited formations. The demo fails to inform the player that there is no LAN capability, and the demo map appears to be as big as any in the game, both pretty big negatives for a so-called RTS. In all wish I'd never spent my money.
