Ruse on the Xbox

Anyone tried Ruse? Bought it on sons say-so but not played it much yet. Trouble is - 99% of xbox games seem to be shooters and very few of them appeal to me - have got hold of Bioshock I, Red dead, New vegas and Halo reach but not keen to get any others. Currently trying Darkstar One on a 5 day loan from Blockbusters and it seems a decent Elite Clone but very samey after a while - cant see why it 17 quid second hand for a 5 year old game. So is Ruse worth persisting with?

heh, I love that, the original elite was nothing but the same thing over and over and over again but it was original and everyone loved it - but everyone now has rose tinted glasses about how good it was :)

Have you played fallout 3 or fallout vegas on the xbox Cull? The shooting should suit you better, as the action can be paused, while you choose which body part to shoot for. It's an adventure/rpg/shooter so might be worth a look.

Getting the hang of the controller can take a while...I was the same and now like using the controller......still too slow myself to compete against my kids :rolleyes:

Edit: ahh just noticed you have New vegas, how come you don't like that?

Oblivion is pretty good, its like a fantasy type fallout, quiet cheap with all the DLC.The other Halo games are pretty good, if you liked reach (also cheap).Could probably pick some of them up for the price of a rental on ebay. Space combat/flight games are few and far between on the xbox though :(

Darkstar one only came out last year on the xbox, even though its been on the PC for yonks.

Ah Ic, thought it had been out on xbox for that long, cn see why its pricey now. Ill definitely get it when its a little cheaper.

Lol Roch yeah, you forget how much those old games creaked after a while :)

Got Oblivion and did like New Vegas but son nicked it the day after I bought it. Loving Bioshock - great atmosphere that game.
