What's "the point"

At its heart, Spec Ops:The Line is a cover-based shooter. A really crummy one. The mechanics of this game are easily of lower quality than those of even the first Gears of War, which was released five years prior and had laid a clear blueprint. It's incredibly easy to become unstuck to cover, at wh...

Better cover shooter than Last of Us 2

This game is like Gears of War without all of the goofy sci-fi stuff I can't stand. It reminds me of 50 Cent Blood on The Sand for obvious reasons. It's got the running back tuck of GOW and allows you to control squad members in a fairly simplistic and effective way. It's a cover shooter with A.I. that can be very punishing. I'm sure Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War will have some amazing on-rails scenes but truth be told games have been doing this for years and it's very much a paint-by-numbers ...

Do you feel like a hero yet?

Do you feel like a hero yet? It’s pretty awesome seeing a message like that show up in the hint section on a loading screen. Spec Ops: The Line is a very interesting game, playing it four years after its release must skew things a bit. This definitely isn’t a 60 dollar game, especially today. Putting this in your Steam wishlist and waiting for a drop, or finding a heavily discounted copy of it for 360/PS3 and spending your weekend with it definitely pays off. Little else besides it&r...

A terribly written story fails to drive a poorly designed game.

I've never understood the praise that Spec Ops: The Line received for its story. (SPOILER WARNING) The sub-Call-of-Duty twist at the end of the game that a bunch of things had been in your characters head was cliched and ineffective. The progression of the game-y elements of Spec Ops turning against you, loading screens calling you a killer and a monster etc., was a cool idea that was delivered ham-fistedly. And speaking of hammy fists, the white phosphorous scene maybe sums up my problems with ...

Never Cross the Lines

Who are we without our humanity, and given the right circumstances will we abandon the social pre-conceived idea of humanity to survive. That phrase appears to be the idea that Spec Ops: The Line is trying to push. When faced with a difficult decision, sometimes the best decision is to just do what seems best for better or for worse. Yet those decisions can carry a heavy burden on one's conscience. As you play through Spec Ops you are given difficult decisions in an unconventional way for games...

A call to discuss the role of the video game shooter

The US 33rd Infantry Battalion, led by Colonel John Konrad arrives in Dubai to assist in the evacuation effort before giant sand storms can bury the city whole. In defiance of orders from his superiors to leave the city, Konrad and the 33rd remain behind to lead a caravan of refugees out of Dubai. The evacuation is a failure. In the storm’s aftermath, Dubai is declared a no-man's-land and the 33rd are branded as traitors.In Spec Ops: The Line, you assume the role of Captain Walker, who is ...

An anti-war saga in a sea of military shooters.

War is hell, if you didn't already know this. Hatred erupts into a firestorm of death, leaving behind only tears and destruction. It’s what breaks humans down into a blanket of depression for years to come. In the midst of military shooters arises a different type of story that doesn't praise war but expresses the discomfort of being in war.If you haven’t already had the story spoiled for you, you might be in for a big surprise. What starts out as a typical modern warfare scenario quickly turns ...

Spec Ops: The Line Review

Spec Ops: The Line is one of the best shooters I’ve played this console generation… And I’m sick of shooters to be quite frank. Every other game that comes out is a shooter these days.Spec Ops: The Line is a thought-provoking game that deserves to recognized, backed by some fantastic voice-work, a gorgeous setting within the Arabian Desert, and a satisfying, gritty outlook on what war can do to the mind.Expect the worse, anticipate deathThe game starts with a rescue mission that swiftly unravel...

A Broken Man

This Spec Ops is easily the best in the Spec Ops franchise. What really sets this one apart is the story. I got it cheap from an online retail website for only $4.95 (PC Download). I was very impressed. I went in with kinda low expectations but I was pleasantly surprised. The game is filled with moral choices and they're all pretty bad in a moral sense, there is no nice options, only less horrible ones. It's a slow start, but once it picks up you wont want to put it down.The game looks pretty da...

Now I understand why some people HATE Shutter Island

Spec Ops: The Line is a game that I've been waffling over whether to buy for what feels like a year now. Every few months, usually because of someone in the press or a forum bringing it up, I get really curious about why the story is so talked about. But I've tried the demo and wasn't ever too intrigued with the actual game so it was really cool to find the game available for free this month on Playstation Plus. Let me just say that I'm really glad I wasn't asked for any money in exchange for th...
