Spec Ops The Line Review - The Digital Fix

Arguably one of the worst titles for a game in many years, Spec Ops: The Line arrives at a time when the the military shooter appears to be at a crossroads. Call of Duty and Battlefield fight it out every year for your online multiplayer time, neither being particularly successful at producing a thought provoking single player experience, leaving almost every other shooter scrabbling around for the scraps, sadly most of which quickly finding themselves at a twenty pound price point ten days after launch. The big franchises dominate and iterate rather than strive for new experiences begging the question, is the single player shooter dead or is there room in the market for something a little less “you have ranked up, you are now a super mega soldier, kill some noobs” and a little bit more, dare we say it...grown up? (PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360) 7/10
