    This is the War, Deaths, deaths and more deaths.

    Few games and even movies portray war as well as Spec Ops: The Line, in this game we see the horror of war, deaths and characters with problems that the war caused, a cruel game with shocking moments and difficult choice... Read Full Review

    To some extend it feels like Gears of War....

    This not a regular military shooting game. Game story is pretty simple until you reach the last chapter. In last chapter it feels like some Hollywood thriller like Fight club or Memento. Graphics are little above average... Read Full Review

    “The truth, Walker, is that you're here because you wanted to feel like something you're not: A hero.” Without wishing to spoil anything, these words were spoken in the recent game Spec-Ops: The Line. One qu... Read Full Review

    This the best treasure that I had the great honor to play! ( Heavy Spoiller Alert!)

    Excellent story, acting, visuals and audio mired in formulaic gameplay.

    For as much as Spec Ops: The Line does exceedingly well it failed in one very key area: gameplay. That combined with questionable marketing and tacked on multiplayer doomed this gem to be a commercial flop. But what a ge... Read Full Review

    Unexpected good shooter

    I played this game because it was given free by PSN and I wanted a game that I could finished in 8 hours or less. When I started to play this game, the graphics didn't impress me at all. Very low texture all around, eve... Read Full Review

    Boros reviews the game that did a very rare thing. Made him feel emotions again.

    Boros here, and is a shooter about the horrors of war automatically hypocritical? After playing this game for the first time, I've looked up lots of other reviews to find that the consensus is split. There is no middle g... Read Full Review

    Average Joe Wants His Averageness Back

    Sometimes you start something and you can't finish it. Maybe that something is some crappy chinese food, maybe it's a boring movie, maybe that something is high school. While I did finish high school (thank god) there ... Read Full Review

    A psychological thriller with a war as a frontier.

    Spec Ops lets you control three Delta-squad members. Through the entire game morale choices and shooting enemies become a morale dilemma. Your squad mates have issues with what the squad has to do. The story takes on som... Read Full Review
