DualShockers | Review: Spec Ops: The Line

"Where does Spec Ops: The Line fit in to all of this? A combo-breaker is something that it is not, it is however, a breath of fresh air – in fact, it was the most fun I have had in a third-person shooter ever since my days on the old SOCOM games. The strength of Spec Ops: The Line lies in its story, it is one of the most visceral and intense stories I have seen in a military shooter, this is due in part to the source material. The stories featured in other shooters are more like glorified tutorials for the multiplayer, with utterly forgettable characters and storylines; Spec Ops’ narrative is much more memorable than that. It follows more of the formulas of a psychological military film, much like Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, or The Hurt Locker." (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360) 6.5/10
