The Best Adaptation of Heart of Darkness since Apocalypse Now
on July 05, 2014 at 08:17 AM
Just in time for the 4th, I'd like to point out something that I just learned about 2012's underappreciated (Gamespot: 6.5) gem, Spec Ops: The Line. Still free on Plus right now, did you know this game is actually based on 67th out of 100 best novels in the English language of the twentieth century...
Do You Feel Like A Hero Yet?
on June 26, 2013 at 04:49 PM
Most people who play a modern military shooter like Call of Duty or Battlefield aren't looking for anything complicated. They just want to be entertained for a few hours. Popping enemies from cover and watching huge set-piece explosions is simple and entertaining. We don't expect shooters to...
This rare story driven shooter values its narrative as much as any author values their book.
on June 07, 2013 at 11:29 PM
Lets be honest I play modern military shooters for the story line about as often as I watch porn for its dialog. The majority of the time they're about Russians and/or Middle-Easterners trying to blow up the world with a hijacked Nuke and it's up to team America to save the day. You may find...
This Might Be the Last Game I Play.
on December 02, 2012 at 12:28 AM
This Might Be the Last Game I Play. As I type this, Spec Ops does what it sets out to do so well, having a stellar story, amazing voice acting and tight gunplay. The story truly makes you question everything you ever know about gaming, which makes me question why I should keep playing. When games don't...
An unforgettably dark and surprisingly memorable shooter
on October 26, 2012 at 03:19 PM
When Spec Ops: The Line, a resurrection of a long dead and mediocre shooter series was announced and shown to be a cover based military shooter starring stock characters like the stoic hero and wise cracking sniper, there wasn’t much in the way of high expectations. The game doesn’t even...
Spec Ops: The Line User Review
on October 15, 2012 at 08:40 AM
When I first read the preview of Spec Ops: The Line in a Gameinformer magazine, I vowed to buy it no matter what it was rated in the end, for two things I read in the preview: "Joseph Conrad's The Heart of Darkness" and "Apocalypse Now". I love Apocalypse Now and have Heart of...
"(A)n impalpable grayness" of Moral Terror: Ruminations on Spec Ops: The Line
on September 09, 2012 at 03:21 PM
I killed a mob of civilians. Not out of gleeful delight. Not because I had to. I chose to gun them down because of something they did, and my squadmate followed my example. I didn't feel better afterwards, not justified or avenged or anything. I did not even have time to regret my actions because...

This game was a pretty flawless game,The whole time your pursue the enemies But in the end you failed killing the wrong people what a day. You see many Strange visions during this game,It can be creepy. Best part about this game is that you have 2 good Teammates that go threw a lot with you. I recommend...
Just Another Shooter
on August 01, 2012 at 10:11 AM
When I saw my first glimpse of this game, I was extremely excited. There's something about corpses hanging upside down with their heads buried in the sand that makes the little demented child inside me jump for joy. It looked like it was gonna be a fresh new take on both the apocalypse AND shooter...

All i have to say is I am tired and sick of this macho man, macho man, macho man, I do not want to be a macho man, but for some reason I keep buying macho man games. No puns to the Village People, but come on, how many games do we need...
Spec ops: The line shows great strength, but has a few issues
on July 17, 2012 at 01:07 PM
I was excited for spec ops: the line. I thought it looked like a dark and gritty experience that most shooter don't do. I hated the critism it got, but still got it. I think truely the critics were wrong. This is a great game. Not award winning but better then what everyone says. Graphics are good...
Spec Ops: The Line
on July 08, 2012 at 01:05 PM
No news is good news, but is all news bad news? One of the biggest and most notable things about Spec Ops: The Line is that it truthfully makes you feel every bullet and person you waste. While most generic or top of the line shooters don't spare a second to think about how the people you've...
Great Story: Slightly Above Average Game
on July 06, 2012 at 02:12 AM
Have you ever killed someone in a video game and actually felt bad? If so then prepare to have that uncomfortable feeling return in Spec Ops: The Line. If not then let your rage flag fly and kill without mercy in the campaigns multi-pathed gameplay. The story is great and will stop you from putting the...
You Are the Line

Ive played Games for quite some time now, and i must say that although i started out with mario or pokemon, i gradually moved over to the more mature side of the gaming industry, and after a couple years of shooting,killing,dismembering,and Torturing Animated Bots on screen, ive gotten Desenitized to...
The hero. The horror. The unfolding of a blind man
on June 30, 2012 at 07:25 AM
A lot of the shooters I've played have been you shooting the bad guys and walking away with a cool cut scene with everyone hugging about the great job they've done. But in this game there are no hugs and kisses there are only bullets and murder. Welcome to Dubai. The game begins with you walking...

I must confess, I wasn't sure about the game until I played the demo, but as a whole, the game comes off pretty great. Now, I have issue with a few things, but the game Gets a 9 because all of the pieces are there. No, this is not a Multiplayer review, as that is going to have to be a separate score...
A Solid Shooter
on June 26, 2012 at 09:00 PM
I think this is a pretty good game if you're looking for a shooter that feels a little fresh. The game is fun to play through. However, I feel like some parts of it are choppy like the animations, and you aren't given much freedom when doing cool things like rappelling. The game is also pretty...
