A look at some of the key tropes of Yager's Spec Ops: The Line. One of the defining shooters of this generation.
this is one of those games that aggravated me....The actual shooting mechanics, and spawn closets of enemies, and the overall act of killing just wasn't fun....But the game DID have one of the best stories and great cast of characters to boot. While not inherently original, it at least attempted to do something different.
I never would have tried the game if it wasn't put on PS Plus. It looked like a crappy "dudebro" shooter as someone else has said on n4g. The game was a pleasant surprise though. Definitely seemed like a game that was (almost) unfairly overlooked. I enjoyed it.
I too would have never played it w/out PS+ but I just couldn't get into it. Agree with you that shooting mechanics weren't fun.
