I just finished playing Spec Ops last night. Mane, what a finish to a great game. If you have yet to play it let me point you
in the direction of my two previous blogs on the game.
You can view them both here below:
When you think of Spec Ops, the developers of the game
definitely lived up to the game's title and then some. After playing this game, I am definitely sold
on it as my GOTY for 2011.
The action is spot on from the opening salvo. It's also gritty & dark. It differs from CoD in that aspect. It also plays itself in a way that it will
make you think about the choice.
The characters interact with eachother as though they were
comrades/brothers. The dynamics between
them helps carry the game from beginning to end. The character interaction is something I feel
is overlooked by most gamers; this game will have you thinking twice about
future games that you're considering. I'd
rate it a 10 too.
The voice acting lends itself to the game in a way I thought
was unique. Each character feeds off
eachother & push eachother in ways that other developers should consider
when putting together a game in terms of development. The voice acting was
solid; I'd rate it a 10. I digress!
As for the gameplay, there is nothing that I can say that I
have not already said. As evidenced by
my demo blog. You can also check out my
impressions blog too.
The game itself is set in the backdrop of Dubai. You have the environment which plays a
crucial role in how the game turns out.
The developers did a great job in using the surrounding environment to
help with the great action scenes and the cut scenes too.
Also, the moral
compass of this game is one that has not been paralleled; I don't think that too many other developers will able to recreate
the experience that Spec Ops has managed to elegantly yet darkly put together,
in my humble opinion!
The musical score is one that rivals the best third person
shooter & it even gives the first person shooters a run for the money.
Overall, the game speaks for itself. I'd rate it a 10/10. No questions asked! After you play through it, I feel as though
you'd say the same.
