Thunderbolt: Spec Ops: The Line Review

Thunderbolt: Spec Ops: The Line is unabashed in its Heart of Darkness influences. Joseph Conrad’s classic journey upriver through the Congo, and later Vietnam and Cambodia in Apocalypse Now, replaced with the golden sand dunes of a desolate Dubai. The once oil rich metropolis reduced to hell on earth as a series of historic and apocalyptic sandstorms ravage the Middle Eastern paradise and its towering landmarks. This is not a venue normally befitting of a modern military shooter, but then Spec Ops: The Line isn’t one for following the norm. Unless you count the gameplay that is. (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360) 7/10
