Spec Ops: The Line PS3 preview – this year’s most traumatic shooter?

Now I wasn’t expecting that. I’m not talking about the city-levelling gunfight I’ve just had with a battalion of rogue American soldiers – 90-minutes with Spec Ops: The Line and stamina sapping shootouts are pretty much par for the course.

Neither am I talking about the street that’s now choked with the wailing soon-to-be-corpses of my enemies, their life seeping into the surrounding sand, staining it a morbid shade of crimson. What really surprised me was how I felt. Because I felt like a total a-hole. A soulless, murdering bastard.

How about you wait until the game comes out?

Smashbro292234d ago

Oh boy a shooter! Should this even qualify as news anymore?!

I wonder if anyone will even buy this game. It looks like one of those games that will come out and people wont even notice.

The only third person shooter i'm particularly interested in is Binary Domain. This seems suspiciously like a game that will preview well and review badly.

And no one is even gonna comment on how the video in the link is from the 360 version or a the PC version with an xbox 360 controller?

Why is everybody complaining? Looks like a blast! Graphics are very good. I'd say, incredibly good for a multiplat. Very nice art direction, interesting camera (like those small windows of the plane you look through). Shooting/melee mechanics seem to borrow a lot from Uncharted, which is also good. Also the plot made me interested, feeling awkward because you shoot people, I'm very curious about this.

Possible day 1 for me.
