Spec Ops The Line Review (NGN)

NGN: "The Spec Ops franchise dates way back to late 90’s and early 2000’s, when the series saw the release of a number of titles, though none went on to become either critical or financial successes as much as the publishers have liked. With 2012’s Spec Ops: The Line, the franchise seeks to reinvent itself with a completely new direction and developer. Even so, the game went through a lengthy and troubled cycle after being announced in 2009, but has now finally seen the light of day. You can expect plenty of shootouts and a unique setting, mixed with an intriguing storyline and dark thematic elements. In a rare case, The Line is competent shooter you’ll remember for its plot rather than the decidedly average action." (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360) 76/100

Played this game yesterday and wish I could get the 30 minutes of my life that I put into it back.

What were the developers thinking? This game makes Haze feel like a AAA mega blockbuster game.

I don't agree with you. I thought that this game was ok. Not great, but not bad either.

I would wait for a price drop if anyone want's to get it. It's a good game for $25 but don't spend more than that on it.

Ok maybe it was not that bad but I was really expecting it to be more on par with Uncharted 3 and Gears 3...maybe my expectation were too high.

Not worth the $60 but if anyone is interested I have a copy on ebay for $40.

Really? I didn't LOVE it, but I thought it was, at least, functional with some relatively effective moments.

One of the best games I've experienced this year. Gameplay was competent, story was amazing. Worth every penny.

Wasn't thrilled with the demo gameplay wise, but im interested in it for the story. I'll pick it up when it hits 29.99 in about a month.

Best story in a military shooter ever. Yes, I think it has a better campaign than the first Modern Warfare.
