Edge has given Eugen WWII RTS RUSE a healthy 8/10. Or has it?

“The French developer has found a way to facilitate deep strategy on just a handful of button [sic], streamlining the interface at little cost to the tactician,” said the mag, as re-typed by CVG.

Unfortunately, though, the battlefield action is “a bit slow,” according to that piece, and the mag wasn’t particularly gripped by the storyline.

But it’s good in other areas, and “as a result, it’s deserving of a wider audience than recently released high-profile rivals might allow for,” said the review.

Bloody hoopla. RUSE ships for PC, 360 and PS3 on September 10.
