Spec Ops: The Line Reduced Price

Spec Ops: The Line first caught gamers attention with a few trailers and a lengthy demo. Then the reviews came out and critics raved about the morality in the game. If you didn't pick it up when it first came out for $60, the price is now reduced to $45 new on Amazon. You can get it cheaper for used copies. (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360)

So happy I didn't buy this brand new @ $60. Don't get me wrong, it was one hell of a game, but way too short. I bought it used and beat it twice in 24 hours. Debating on returning it already.

The story was about 8hrs long but it wasn't all set action pieces like many other shooters. I felt like it was a mature story for adults.

Buying used isn't helping any of the devs who worked quite hard and than we wonder why there are online passes. It wouldn't shock me if going forward into next gen that publishers start to lock single player content unless you have a pass by buying new

It's a business and when a brand new game that just came it people are buying used will have consequences in the long run

Already happening.

I normally buy everything brand new, unless I hear something like it is less than 5 or so hours long. Although I could afford it, I cannot justify spending $60 for a game that will last me a day haha. I played it on normal, or whatever it is called in game, and beat it the first time in 3 hours and 45 minutes and the second time in 3 hours and 27 minutes. I haven't tried multiplayer yet, but if it is fun and grabs my attention I will return my used copy and purchase it brand new for replay value.

who gives a crap if the dev gets paid for the game or not. as a gamer you want to get the game as cheap as possible especially as games nowadays are shorter/crap/lack of content etc.

only the good developers deserve to get rewarded. the rest can fall in a ditch for all i care.

It's people like you who are responsible for online passes and soon single player content beng locked. If a game is good and spec ops is really good than why don't the dont the devs deserve money and to actually may make a sequel or a new IP which they could get a bigger budget for

Next time you are giving your money to a used game retailer think about it's long term affects because than people like you will be the nes crying about content being locked the most

It's been that price on Amazon for a while now.

This is sad. This was one of my favourite games of 2012. It's a pity it has not received commercial success initially, but hey, neither didn't Boondock Saints

The game is great! The story is awesome for a shooter too. And it also has replay value, play through the game again but making different morality choices. People support this developer who actually made a great game with a more then decent story!
