A classic

As a game, spec ops the line is a really fun, spectacular shooter, that has some very tough moments, and almost hopeless fights you have to battle through, to reach the end of the game. The controls are a little unusual at first, but can be learned pretty fast, and the enemies really try to work together to get you. In harder difficulties you have to be almost a jedi to fend off them, before they flank you, and make you just another skeleton in the desert. It's multiplayer mode is okay, but they recently added a coop mode, which made me buy this again for a friend, so we can play through those 4 new missions. You can try to beat then on your own by the way, if you really like to suffer, but i don't recommend it, unless you are a GOD of third person shooters. What elevates this game above the average is it's story, and morals. In the beginning it seems like a conventional COD story about the brave warriors of Eagle land, operating behind enemy lines, but quickly, it takes you to a much deeper and darker place, that is shocking. I won't spoil anything, but i think everyone should play with this. It really makes you think about a lot of things.

Excellent video game

Went in expecting another generic shooter: American goes to a foreign country and kills people with tea towls on thier heads... Then I played the phosphorus scene. A game that ACTUALLY captures the horrors of war, the phycological effects, and the depressing moral decisions that accompanies any millitary operation. A game that makes you feel like a monster just for playing the game.

Amazing Gameplay and Unpredictable Story

Spec Ops: The Line is a game that is fairly hard to play (at least for me) on the highest difficulty (FUBAR) but it's just you have to complete the whole game of the 2nd hardest difficulty (Suicide Mission). The atmosphere in the game looks really really nice that makes you want to take a screenshot everytime there's a nice view. The story, it is a real-war-ish story that tells you that a war is not about being a great soldier like some other games. I recommend this game so much.

My review about this game

Playing this game is rather like watching the proverbial train wreck: you'll be horrified, but you can't look away. This is in no way a bad thing. Spec Ops wants to tell a story about soldiers in war. But unlike games such as Call of Duty, it doesn't want you to feel like an awesome, unstoppable killing machine that's fighting terrorism FOR 'MERICA!!! or whatever; it wants you to see that war is not glamorous, awesome, fun, or desirable. It wants you to see the terrible toll that combat can exact on those who experience it. And above all, it wants you to see that in real conflict, there are no "good guys" and "bad guys," and the world is full of gray areas. War is hell, and anyone who goes in will either join the fortunate dead...or have to live with what they've done to survive. The game also offers the clever idea of having drifts of sand piled up on fragile surfaces like windows, which you can shoot out to bury your enemies. It doesn't show up that often, but it's kind of neat when it's there. There's the usual shooter stable of weapons: pistols, heavy pistols, shotguns, sniper rifles, etc. They sound good and feel decently punchy, and aiming is never a problem. Most weapons also have an alternate fire mode, which does add a little depth to the combat.

Must buy when on sale

Game is highly addictive but short, took me around 4 hours to beat. Enjoyable story, good acting, and fun fast-paced shooting. Choices are mostly not important and don't change the gameplay which I'm not really a fan of, but despite that, the game is highly replayable.
