PS3 Review - Spec Ops: The Line (ATemporaryDistraction.com)

ATemporaryDistraction.com: "Video games have always had an awkward relationship with depicting the horrifying nature of war. By their very nature, games are there to thrill you, to entertain you, which means they naturally tend to overlook all the soul-crushing, harsh realities of being a soldier and instead deliver the adrenaline-fuelled, gung-ho bravado of a Michael Bay movie.

Spec Ops: The Line admirably tries to tow that line, telling the more bleak and sobering tale of men of war struggling to hold onto their humanity as they’re faced with impossible moral quandaries and the inevitable toll that war takes on the human psyche. And while it strikes a sometimes awkward balance between that gritty realism and the overly familiar, over-the-top, high-octane action that wouldn’t seem out of place in a Call of Duty game, The Line does manage to deliver one of the most satisfying, well-crafted narratives you’ll find in any military game in recent memory." (PS3, Spec Ops: The Line) 4/5
