This game made me sad. I was annoyed after the first few moments when my soldiers didn't show enough common sense to take cover while being shot at. I was angered when my Anti-Tank units kept packing their stuff to move nearer to Tanks, rather than shooting AROUND obstructions. Selecting units and zooming in on them is kind of crucial in this game, yet there is no option for changing the speed of the camera. Select All Units doesn't actually select them all. It selects all the units of the same type! THAT was irritating to learn after having most of my infantry get eliminated while my anti-tank guns traveled alone to my prior destination. And I never could figure out how R.U.S.E. cards were supposed to work. Games like this should just be turn-based. RTS doesn't do well on consoles. They should just give it up and leave these kinds of games on the PC.
This game was just not meant to be on a console. Maybe with PS MOVE it would be better I don't know. I tried a demo and enjoyed it, but once you start playing the actual game it becomes obvious you really only move your units into trees and play a stagnant match of rock papers scissors
