Spec Ops: The Line review | Select Start Media

"The single-player campaign is a horrible, bleak presentation of all-too-real modern warfare that will leave you feeling like a terrible person, but it’s one that should really be played by anyone who can pick up a controller. In all honesty, it likely could have been released as The Line, as its connection to its ten-year old predecessors goes no further than the name and the genre. Some – myself included – were ready to pass off Spec Ops: The Line as another generic war shooter, the rebirth of a forgotten franchise, but I’m truly glad I didn’t. I’m sure that others will chastise it for its lousy multiplayer or disappointing cover system, but the strength of its campaign is enough for me to recommend it to just about anyone. If you’re prepared to feel shit about yourself for a week, that is." | Select Start Media (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line) 9.0/10
