So I have read so many articles about Spec-Ops that I finally gave it a try and finished it last night. I guess I was expecting something a bit more profound with the story since everyone was talking it up so much. Well I guess it does go against the grain of typical shooters a tiny tiny bit by showing you how decisions can be mistakes.
Besides, the fuel for all the killing in the game comes from insanity correct? I mean, the voices in a the main characters head was his own insane thoughts because the man he was chasing to the end was dead right? So, in the ending of the game, I shot myself for being insane. Am I not understanding the story correctly?
A better story could have come from the idea of a soldier understanding that he was no longer fighting to protect what was important to his/her beliefs, people or constitution, and was simply fighting to push the political will of his/her own government around the world. because I've killed a hell of a lot of Russian etc. in past games lol. When do I get to kill armies full of englishmen, or how about Austrailian lol. Pointless banter i guess haha.
Probably one of the most profound parts of the game was during a load screen after I died. The text showed 'How many Americans have you killed so far?' Made me think a bit
I think it was a decent shooter and the story was a bit different than usual, but thats all. Whats your opinion?
