Why Is Nobody Excited For Spec Ops: The Line?

Spec Ops: The Line will be out in a few weeks, and is looking rather good, with a mostly positive demo reception, promising realistic gameplay, a gritty story, and an all around enjoyable experience. Yet there's few articles previewing the game, nobody really seems to be talking about it, and it seems to be completely under the radar. Summer is known to be the slump period for gaming, but is nobody at all truly excited for this game? (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360)

Because there are far better games due out.
It's decent, but it's very "Meh".

It's just another typical cover shooter that's been done already

Based off the demo I could see why you say that, but people who have played more said it was better further in as choices start affecting outcomes and there are some crazy things in the game.

Because they took a risk in releasing the demo fairly early and in doing so it got a lot of negative feedback. I commend them on taking the risk considering how many developers nowadays are so afraid to release demos and instead we just rely on Gamefly.

But yea, bad demo give a bad first impression and kills any hype for the game.

Am so excited for this game that i paid off my preorder the very next day Gamestop was taking preorders for it.

Got a disagree for stating my feeling for this game. Wow talk about Butt hurt.

It's N4G, what did you expect lol

For me it's the fact that the Spec Ops name is on it, and that series (even if it's not the same as it once was) was horrible.

I'll give the demo a shot, but it sounds like that's not very good either. Maybe the full game will end up great... but I'll be waiting for a few price drops.

Whose not excited? I got it pre-ordered.

Hmmmm... I will try the demo, but just at first glance it doesn't seem like a title that can provide me with something that other games can not. We will see. (Solely based off the box art... I am aware my view holds no real weight).

Demo was decent will play it again to double check. Maybe when it drops in price.

In the middle of a summer drought...and on sale for $30...it's still a big maybe. We've seen this game before.

I'm gonna get many disagrees for this so I am going to say this anyway!!!!

Spec Ops: The Line looks better than Ghost Recon Future Soldier, which look bland in comparision. Can Spec Ops The Line hold its own against Ghost Recon Future Soldier, maybe just need to play it and see, and see the review of course. For the most part, the campaign is looking to be better than Ghost Recon's campaign. Spec Ops campaign actually has choices!!!! with sand and all the other cool stuff.

Ghost Recon Future Soldier was pretty bland gameplay and story wise, it would be safe to assume this might be better.

You shot out a window and sand fell and you are completely excited about this game because of that?! And please tell us "all the other cool stuff" that this game has to offer
Sainox16  +   1216d ago
Im not excited for it but its just one of those titles that I have to try out because the demo was really something :)
BXbomber  +   1216d ago
when this game was unveiled several years ago it looked amazing but it too long for this game to come out plus if i wanted a good military action 3ps i would go with ghost recon. That game is just great and luv everything about it so yup Ghost recon>>> spec ops.
solidworm  +   1216d ago
Because it is a large pile of generic wankness.
jagstatboy  +   1216d ago
I like 2K Games the publisher, but not sure about the developer Yager. Game seems meh.
GuyThatPlaysGames  +   1216d ago
Spec Ops has always had a shitty line-up of games,even since the PS1 days of it. Spec Ops has always felt like the red-headed step-child of the shooter genre.
sprinterboy  +   1216d ago
Im excited
LoveSpuds  +   1216d ago
I quite enjoyed the demo and have seen a lot of the multiplayer in various videos and think the overall package looks decent.

I have a bit of a backlog of games to pick up but if I see this for the right price I will definately pick it up. While I agree it looks a little generic, tonally some of the themes seem more 'grown up' and so I feel the story may deliver more that you might think.
