New York Times: Specs Ops: The Line Review: Military Expedition Into the Heart of Darkness

Most military shooters — a subgenre of video games with conventions so rigid as to seem ritualistic — try to have it both ways when it comes to their relationship with actual warfare. Players are clearly supposed to find the combat, and the real-world settings, a viscerally exciting way to connect to current events. At the same time, far-fetched plotlines reassure us that this is all just a game; have fun and don’t think too much about what you’re doing. (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360) -
