just for the story

bogmasia | May 1, 2013 | Review of Spec Ops: The Line dns

a 3rd person shooter with slightly awkward controls that can sometimes make navigating cover a pain with the shooting being nothing spectacular or new.

But the story is what makes this game. The setting at first glance is nothing new being Americans in the middle east but suddenly the story takes a darker turn thrusting the playing into the often unexplored darker side of a conflict something missing from a lot of new games where shooting the bad guy saves the world and solves everything. the writing and character progression is great with a mature story held together with tried and tested mechanics.

I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a good story and can appreciate that war should be a horrible experience not running and gunning like Rambo
