1UP's Favorite Games of 2012: Spec Ops: The Line

1up.com: Alongside The Walking Dead, Spec Ops stands as a script that's not just "good for a video game," but one of 2012's best stories across any medium. The arc of Captain Martin Walker provides a stunning glimpse into the downward spiral that resides at the core of all wars. (PC, PS3, Spec Ops: The Line, Xbox 360)

In my life I ve never felt bad playing a game like this!! ( just finished it one week ago) ..although I hated the ending just because its been done before. ( played bloack ops1 , read shutter island so yeah .. Its getting old )

this year there was not a single game that made me continue just because of the story alone like spec ops did .. Spec ops easily had the best story of any game that came out this year imo (because how shocking and different it was ..)

To each their own. Spec Ops: The Line was actually one of my bigger gaming letdowns of 2012. I found the action terribly repetitive (And I'm a shooter fan). To me, The whole game felt like it was just a giant "horde mode" style mini-game, narrated by Nolan North. I feel like all I ever did was cut down wave after wave of enemy AI. Occasionally shooting out windows and throwing grenades to drop sand on people

Maybe if the ending is that good, I'll yank it off the ol' game shelf, dust it off, and give it another go. I think I was about half-way through..

The game shouldn't really be judged too harshly on its shooting merits (which are no doubt average), but its story risks. It takes a dark turn and plunges deep into the human psyche like few games do, and like no military shooter ever has.

Incredible game with run-of-the-mill combat. It's ambitious where it counts though and definitely a rewarding playthrough for anyone that thought it was just another gimmicky sausage factory shooter.
