The game is on sale for another seven hours (no longer). If you have any questions, ask away!
I hope we can convince some more of you to get this game.

I just bought this...almost solely because of the comments on this forum. Looking forward to giving it a shot and I'm sure I'll have tons of questions...

Originally, I was looking to get RUSE, as I played the demo a while ago and enjoyed it. Then I noticed Wargame: EE was made by the same dev and more recently. What game would you say is "better"? Is there another RTS game that is better than both of these games?
A bit more info on what I am looking for...
I only plan to play single player (campaign/skirmish and such), so am not fussed if people aren't playing online anymore.
A similar point, as I will be playing against AI, I am not really bothered about the RUSE "special powers", so don't mind if they are missing from Wargame:EE.
I was a fan of the Sudden Strike games, which required thinking and planning rather than just Zerg rushing, so I am looking for something similar, if possible.

I am currently leaning towards Wargame:EE, but any info/advice you can offer, before the flash sale ends, will be appreciated.

Haven't really played ruse, but Ive played this game and thoroughly enjoyed it. Quick heads up though, this is more of a multiplayer game though. The campain isnt bad or anything, but many the main attraction is multiplayer. Games are pretty easy to find, so far, but they are making a sequel to this game called airland battles in 2013, so im not sure how much longer the life of this game will be.

RUSE is a very straight-forward and simple game with every unit showing you a radius of fire and radius of reconnaissance range. In RUSE, you buy supply depots which are pre-placed on the map to gain income, and build bases to construct units.

Wargame is very different. There are no bases, other than the Forward Operating Base containing fuel for maintaining your units. The only way to call reinforcements is through pre-set reinforcement routes. All control sectors (which are all preset on each map) have a value attached to them, and this is the income you will receive every 4 seconds once captured. To capture one of these zones, you will need to park a command vehicle in it. If you lose all of your command vehicles, you lose the match. There are many more units with many more areas of play than in RUSE. Recon can not see through or into thick forests, other objects and thick hedgerows. Cover hides your units better.

In conclusion, Wargame is much more complex, allows for more strategy and use of terrain. Wargame is slower paced, but can still be played in a way that's considered fast-paced or rushing.

I would recommend Wargame any day over RUSE, but I haven't played as much Singleplayer as I have Multiplayer. Neither of the two focus on the SP Campaign, but they are fine. You can also just play skirmishes against the AI on any of the maps (who won't really surprise you or push you very hard).

Thanks for the info, xXMockingBirdXxx.
I rarely play RTS games online, because I know it will take many matches and lots of practise to even come close to winning. You tend to have to know the game inside and out when playing with human opponents and I want to play for fun, not as a job. :)

Thanks for the detailed answer, Chris. :) From what you have said, Wargame sounds more like what I am looking for at the moment. To scratch that brainless base/unit building RTS itch I will probably pick up Red Alert 3, so I am more than ok if there is no base building in Wargame.
I doubt I'll play multiplayer, but it does sound very similar to the MP in Sudden Strike, which I enjoyed (even though I wasn't very good at it), so I am going to get this game!
Thanks again.

How good is this for strickly single-player? I would play online, but I dont have good internet. If its like Sins Of A Solar Empire, I'd be happy. AI any good? If so I will buy it. Love RTS games.

The AI is not very good when you get to a high level of play. The Campaign isn't too bad, but isn't a masterpiece either. It's still a very complex RTS, but multiplayer is where the main focus is. Check some videos out and see if you like it.

Will do. Thanks.

Yea, I was interested in it when it first went on sale for $9.99 a week ago or so ago. Reading comments hear and watching some youtube vibs really got me into it but I just decided not to take the plunge. It went up to $19.99 and I kicked myself for not getting it. I'm glad I held out until yesterday because it went back to $9.99. Excited to play it soon.

I played RUSE for a while, and it really is a great game. It depends on what type of game you are looking for. In RUSE, I would say it is less realistic - you don't have to deal with ammo or fuel or supplies. In Wargame, it you go much more into depth. Also, in RUSE, you have ruses, like cards you can play. For example, you could have a Blitz Ruse that makes your units travel faster, or a Radio Silence Ruse which would hide your units from the enemy. RUSE doesn't have very many online games running anymore - most people are playing Wargame now. I think that playing AI is more fun in RUSE beause you can set up your game for to your liking, and make it much more interesting. Wargame has more game modes, and far more units. I would reccomend Wargame, but RUSE is also great.

this game is amazing. the graphics are beyond epic. Really looking foward to air land battle in 2013 with jets!!!

This game has a mix of ruse and world in conflict. Love it alot. MP is still active and the reward/unlock system is great.
