I would consider myself, at least on a certain level, an average gamer. Sure I probably play a few more games that the average gamer, and probably play a lot longer and more frequently than the average gamer. However, I certainly wouldn’t consider myself a hardcore gamer. I don’t try and 1k every game in my collection, I’m not at level 10 prestige for Modern Warfare 2 (and nor will I ever be), but I do enjoy playing a variety of games. Some I can jump right in and complete in a week, others, like RUSE take a while longer. RUSE is a strategy game that demands a long and fulfilling relationship. I doesn’t want me to bang away at it all night. It wants me to take things slowly, discover how things work, and enjoy its company. As such, I feel a little cheap writing a review this early in our relationship. I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface, but because this is a game that I’m going to be playing over the course of the rest of the year, but I can’t really wait till Christmas to write my review, so here we are.
