Not ImportantSpec Ops: The Line

Yeah sure, the game is okay, but throughout all my playtime I couldn't help but stop and think about better ways to do this story. Heart of Darkness and Apocalypse. Now. exist and both beat the living shit out of this game. The story is nice, but not enough to carry the bad gameplay and bland characters. If Spec Ops: The Line is the Apocalypse. Now. of video games, I don't want to know what is The Thin Red Line of vidya.

Spec Ops: The Line is a diamond in the rough. It's one of the few military shooters with a brutally tragic narrative based around delusional soldiers in a nightmarish warzone. Sure, the gameplay is generic for a shooter. However, the difficulty ramps up at a steep pace with the horrifying storyline. Overall, The Line is one of the greatest, most emotional games in the Xbox 360/PS3 era.

Score: 10.0 (Classic!)

It's difficult to put to words why Spec Ops: The Line is such a good game. Not because it defies description - it's actually rather easy to discuss its merits as the gold standard of mixing narrative and gameplay and why its use of themes and symbolism is so effective - but because much of what can be said about it is best said by experiencing the game first-hand. It's far from a "fun" gaming experience, but this is to the game's credit more than anything else.

This game starts off by making you believe that you're in for yet another dude-bro military shooter, what with your clean-cut, all-american "heroes" going off to shoot a bunch of brown people in the desert, but then it ends up turning into a Heart of Darkness style, scathing evisceration of dude-bro military shooters, the heroes turn out to be a bunch of unlikable bastards, and you were supposed to be HELPING the citizens of Dubai. Your character is constantly being put through hell by others, and his loosening grasp on reality causes him to spiral down into misery and destruction. It's a deliberately fatiguing and soul-crushing experience designed to make the players question the ethics of their main character, and by extension, characters similar to him.

Score: 8.5 (Great!)

I never got around to trying Spec Ops: The Line, but heard it was pretty amazing at communicating its intended message. Maybe I'll get back to it someday!

Giga Pudding Spec Ops might seem like a forgettable game on a first glance, but dedicate more than 10 mins to the game and you'll see that it's anything but forgettable. It's been exactly a year since I finished the game and I still remember every part of the game vividly. Reckon I should let Papissama do the rest of the hyping from here.

Mitchell Bennett Very very impressive game, not one I think you DK in particular would connect to (knowing your tastes only on a second hand basis obviously, I could be wrong), but for its expertly-crafted subversive nature and sheer deconstruction of the inhumane stuff that games ask us to do and we just accept 'because a game told me to' needs saluting in my opinion

Wizzy Pop Do it! You won't regret it! Never thought, that a (on first sight) generic 3rd-person shooter would leave me speechless after finishing it. I literally sat there for an hour, unable to speak! I wish, there would be more games like this in terms of messing around psychological with your mind. Absolutely must-play game!

Some really cool features in this, burying people in sand made me chuckle. Not a bad story either.

This game is awesome, but only if you understands what it's trying accomplish. I don't want to spoil any of it, so I'll let discover that for yourself and if you missed the point you can always look on youtube for some more details.
Other than that gameplay-wise there is not much to be said except that it's a decent shooter.
Hurry up and go play it!

Score: 8.0 (Great!)

"Spec Ops: The Line" - yet another military shooter? Yes. And no.
If franchises like "Battlefield", "Call of Duty" or "Medal of Honor" are like Michael Bay's "Pearl Harbor" - with their gimmickry and cheap drama - "The Line" is probably the "Apocalypse Now" of war games. It has got its share of smaller issues: Similar to "Far Cry 3", some of the genre tropes do get in the way of the narrative. Also, the controls could have used some fine-tuning. Still, if you want to play a military shooter with a dark and mature and morally ambiguous plot, look no further.

Spec Ops: The Line nails the things that are hardest to do, while falters in some of the elementary areas. You'll constantly be blown away by how genius the game is, only to be disappointed few moments later how daft it is. However, Spec Ops is going places and can proudly stand tall amongst most of the games out there.
Pros: Quite possibly the best integrated choice system in a game yet, superb story, great writing, Delta squad, most of the voice acting, the tactical element, some brilliant game design
Cons: Some obtuse game design, clunky controls, very little ambient music, some of the voice acting, sand mechanics are underused, AI of your companions once you command them, outdated graphics, disappointing environmental storytelling

Score: 8.0 (Great!)
