Go dust off your PlayStation 3 and tell us it's not. Spec Ops: The Line was one of the most brutal U.S. military war games to ever released, but you don’t find out until it’s too late.
It’s a great game with amazing story. But I can’t go back to play it again. How do I say this ? It was nightmare experience. Because you done something wrong and it keep pushing you to do so. The game gave you a PTSD. And it made you like real monster. It changed the video game perspective.
the story near the end gets effing nuts!, overall awesome game !.
Underrated game..certainly deserved a bit more attention.
Why is everyone overrating this game? The gameplay was sub-par, on PC at least as I don't know what the standards are on the consoles. There is nothing brutal in the combat, plot points were pushed too hard which led me to figure out something is off early on, and by the end, the plot twist wasn't surprising. It failed to make me feel bad because the game is linear, with the above mentioned forced plot points. I didn't feel like I made those choices, so the game just felt like a tasteless showcase of wartime atrocities with repetitive combat sequences in between. SPOILERS UNTIL THE END OF POST, READ AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION: The white phosphorous sequence, in particular, was praised by just about everyone but it's really poorly executed. I aimed the bombs in a rather small circle in order to wipe out the soldiers and the fire from the last bomb magically spread across the sand, just in order to reach that cage. There is no proper context and there is no oil trail or anything else that would possibly spread the fire that far. It is forced there just for the shock effect. The poor execution ruined what could actually be a shocking point in the story.
It’s well executed because it’s changed the perspective of video game heroism.
No it hasn't. The game launched six years ago and there have been countless games with run of the mill hero stories since.
Yes, it has. Spec Op The Line pushed the player to be real monster who denied reality until it snapped.
Great game and very underrated
What made the game bad was the fact that the pubs made them add online, if they didn't have to do that and were able to sell a single player experience, man this game would've been a top third party game for sure. I platinum'd it, but I always loved spec ops from back in the PC days. This was my Socom before socom, running it on my windows 95 PC beating the game with very very low framerate I mean it would take me 20 minutes to walk 20 meters lmao. Very underrated game, and the story was so impactful man, the ending you're like WTF yoooooo!!! lmao I hope they remaster it, i'll def buy it again this gen or next.
