Spec Ops: The Line Review | Game Podunk

GP: "'War is hell,' said General William Tecumseh Sherman. It's a quote that modern shooters often toss about, but one which no video game has ever embraced the meaning of. Most developers glorify tearing hands, feet, and other limbs off of generic enemy soldiers with as much gore as humanly possible. Through the glorification of war in gaming, the meaning of life is cheapened with half a magazine of 5.56 ammo.

In these war games, there are only heroes and villains, with the most morally-grey aspects of war reduced to cheap marketing tactics like Call of Duty's 'No Russian' mission. Spec Ops: The Line has taken all of these tropes of the modern shooter and thrown them in my face with disturbing clarity. After playing, nay experiencing, Spec Ops, I may never play a shooter with the same mindless power fantasies ever again." (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360) 8.5/10

Spec Ops is one of the greatest Games of this year - maybe it's not so pupular because the gameplay isn't that a normal shooter-player would like to play, but the storyline is so intense than everyone should play it at least once...
I got it at mmoga and was amazed by the game~
