Spec Ops: The Line Review | GamerSciz

Spec Ops: The Line is a third-person shooter video game developed by Yager Development and published by 2K Games. The game was released in North America on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 platforms on June 26, 2012 and in Europe on June 29, 2012. It was officially announced at Spike Video Game Awards on December 12, 2009. Although in the Spec Ops series, The Line does not take any story elements from previous titles. The game follows Captain Martin Walker (voiced by Nolan North) as he is sent into a post-catastrophe Dubai with an elite Delta Force team to hunt for a decorated officer named Colonel Konrad (voiced by Bruce Boxleitner), as well as evacuate any survivors. While lead writer Walt Williams has stated that there are many influences that have gone into the plot, the premise is inspired by Joseph Conrad’s novella. Multiple critics have positively observed similarities to Apocalypse Now, an adaptation of Heart of Darkness, in the game’s feel and expression of no glory in war. (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360) 7.4/10
