Gamesradar- You’re not going to walk away from Spec Ops with a smile. You’re not going to trade stories of valor with your friends. You’re going to feel bad about what you’ve done and have long, reflective conversations about the narrative. You’re going to talk about the choices you made, and instead of wondering what other outcomes there were, you’re going to ask why they did it.
You're going to think about the people you've killed – not just in this game, but in other games in the past. Did you have a choice? Did you even check? Spec Ops: The Line has its issues, but they’re overshadowed by a brave, compelling narrative that treats the medium with respect, and calls you a son of a bitch for playing it. 4/5
