Spec Ops: The Line Preview – The Horror! The Horror! (Lazygamer.net)

The critically acclaimed first games in the series, by Blacklight developer Zombie Games established Spec Ops as a premier tactical shooter franchise – but subsequent games bearing the Spec Ops name have been poor-scoring, low budget affairs. It’s been ten years since the release of the last game in series – so it’s not a stretch to say that Spec Ops has all but faded in obscurity.

A Spec Ops game under development at Rockstar, cancelled in 2005, further plunged the series in to the depths of irrelevance. That made the 2009 revelation that a new Spec Ops, subtitled “The Line” from German developer Yager Development seem an odd choice – but the announcement was accompanied by a gameplay trailer and an intriguing demonstration at E3 in 2010.
