Solid gameplay and a fantastic story but with little choice.

Spec ops the line is a game you should play for the experience above all else. The gameplay is solid enough to say fans of 3rd person cover shooters will be satisfied. A good variety of guns and explosives with the ability to command 2 squad members to do a variety of helpful actions keep the combat from getting too stale. The presentation is highly polished with a surprisingly high amount of colour and beautiful vistas. The musical score is also really well done with songs that fit the tone of the game exceptionally well. To describe any aspect of the story could potentially ruin the experience but the characters, voice acting and script is all fantastic. The only story flaw is that once you reach the conclusion the choices presented during the game prove to be kinda meaningless. Overall if you enjoy a game for an interesting experience that will stay with you long after the game over i highly recommend giving spec ops the line a try.
