Good!

Spec Ops may not have had the best budget or gameplay, but it shows bigger games like MOH and COD for the superficial, jingoistic kill fests they really are.

So apparently this game has some profound story telling/events...interesting. I didn't fancy the demo due to the gameplay mechanics, the cover system/movement felt like a drag. When i'm done finishing blops 2..will beat this game for the story a lone.

You won't be disappointed.

I played through the entire campaign with a buddy at his house, and at first I was very skeptical, unimpressed. But the game totally turns you on your head and calls you out, in a really profound and engaging way.

One of the great sleeper hits of this year.

I got to hand it to them. It has one of the best mindfucks yet as far as endings goes.

Seemed like a generic third person shooter from the demo.
Heard it's not how it seems though and has gathered quite a few fans, will check this out and give it another go.

You're kinda in an unfortunate position. The game makes you think it's a generic shooter, but then flips everything around. That surprise is kinda what made the game so memorable.

... but since it initially makes you think it's a generic shooter, you skipped it, and now, that surprise has been kinda spoiled for you as well.
What's likely to happen is that now when you play the game, the surprise won't be as big of a shocker. =/
