Living on the Line

vinuraba | Oct. 26, 2013 | Review of Spec Ops: The Line

I know I'm a little late to the party, but I just finished Spec Ops: The Line. I wasn't expecting to be blown away by the story since it seems like "just another shooter," but I was so wrong. The combination of visual story telling, utilizing the excellent PC graphics and the writing was amazing. For being in a desert, the environment was surprisingly always different and stunning. I was a huge fan of the animations also. While the violence may seem over the top to some, I felt it added a visually impressive display of animations and physics. I do believe the combat can become difficult and repetitive at times, especially when the last auto-save was 15 minutes before the fight you just died in. However that shouldn't take away from the experience you will have when playing through this finely crafted game.
