One Hit Pixel Review: Spec Ops: The Line

One Hit Pixel: "When you see the average war-based shooters, particularly those which are online enabled, have you ever wondered about the consequences? In books and film, we’ve seen plenty of anti-war messages that don’t sidestep around the issue of the aftermath. Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket is certainly one of the more disturbing of its ilk, but we rarely ever see the harsh realities depicted in the triple-A blockbuster films, let alone videogames. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has moments that intentionally shock, but these are merely restricted to one scene. Spec Ops: The Line may start out as just another generic gung-ho third person shooter, but events quickly head towards a more traumatic and distressing direction. Is it worth it all in the end?" (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360) B+/A+
