RUSE Review

Each battle is fought hard, each war hard fought, but the most difficult thought to accept is that to stand among the proud and free, lives must be lost. Such is the case in the often told stories of World War II, as many a sacrifice was made so that the rest of us may live as we do. R.U.S.E. puts the player in the shoes of a new army commander as he does his part to help the allies push the Nazi's back to Germany. While there are sure to be plenty of tanks, planes and infantry to assist in doing so, this game gives you access to the most important weapon of all: deception. This is what R.U.S.E. is based upon, and what separates it from the rest of the crowd. It's hard to believe that such a focus has been passed over for so long, because proper planning is one of the most important aspects of battle. Fortunately, R.U.S.E. succeeds in creating an entertaining experience based around confusing an opponent... or at the very least it has a clever guise to trick you into long sessions of play. It's one or the other. To start off, R.U.S.E. is a slower paced game then most RTS titles. One that is less reliant on the commander’s actions per minute and more so on planning the right balance of attacking, defending, and using special abilities (RUSEs) appropriately. It brings a whole new method of warfare into the RTS genre in the art of deception. The majority of the special abilities in this title are made to trick the opponent into believing what the player wants them to, all the while hiding the true plans until the troops are ready to strike. There are a bunch to choose from and favourites will quickly be developed, though to be truly successful it is a good idea to use all of them when appropriate. From spying on enemies or initiating radio silence to prevent opponents from seeing friendly units, to messing with enemy frequencies so they confuse small units with large ones and vise versa. There is sure to be one R.U.S.E. that puts a smirk on the face of its user, because messing with an opponent's head is just as fun as messing up their tank squad with a bombing run. Read More

The Magic of Early 90s 3D

The Magic of Early 90s 3D

Over twenty years ago, video games began taking their first painful steps into 3D spaces. This was a time when Atari's memory was fading fast and the Nintendo Entertainment System was becoming the kingpin of the gaming landscape. Console gaming would spend the next several years perfecting the art of 2D gaming goodness. Words such as “Project Reality” (the Nintendo 64) would be tossed around in magazines every so often, but the simple truth was that home-based polygon video games were years away, and most of the early stuff would be crude at best thanks to limited technology. If you wanted to see the latest and greatest mind blowing 3D gaming technology, you went to arcades. Familiar names like Atari Namco and Sega were in a silent arms race to develop the best, most powerful, most badass, and most boringly titled (“System 21” and “Model 2”... really guys?) custom video game hardware known to man. 3D games were a novelty in arcades for quite some time prior. While quarter munching 2D brawlers like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and X-Men or competitive V.S. fighters like Street Fighter II and Fatal Fury were the cheap, reliable workhorses of the floor, every serious arcade operator had at least one super expensive monster 3D machine sitting in a dark corner drawing glares from mystified onlookers more accustomed to the crusty and familiar blocky image of a late gen NES title. Most of the early 3D game designs were crude and blocky, but nobody cared in the late 80s. Moving around in a 3D space with solid 3D objects floating all around you like a Weird Al music video was enough to impress back then. The hardware often ran hot and unreliably, and the cabinets were often mammoth, but they guzzled quarters like nobody's business. These were the trailblazers that tore down the walls and eventually brought 3D home. In this far removed time, outside of more mainstream brand names like Star Fox, nobody remembers these crude, flat-shaded pioneers. Let's take a look at some of the early 3D games that time forgot about... Read More
