IGN: Spec Ops: The Line Review

Escalating conflict, both internal and external.

Toman854172d ago

Maybe I shall give this a try :)
Looks fun for me, but I will skip the multiplayer for this one!

People thought I was crazy being semi-excited for this game. While I never place too much on reviews....rather trust my instinct and demos - the majority of 7-9 reviews makes me happy for a new ip.

CanadianTurtle4172d ago

I'll get this once it hits the bargain bin at 20 bucks

wastedcells4171d ago

Not a new ip. Spec ops is from the 90's. The reviews have been mostly 8's. Surprise of the summer???


Spec Ops: The Line - Can War Ever be 'Just' Entertainment?

Spec Ops: The Line was a 2012/2013 release that tried to exemplify that war shouldn't be entertaining through an entertainment product.

Recently downloaded this on my Series S. The game still holds up. Shame it never took off.

spicelicka19d ago

The should remaster or remake it, even though it holds up.

TheBrainZ19d ago

Never got around to playing this, another lost to the ever-expanding game library.

You really should give it a go. There's a 'turning point' of sorts which is truly staggering.

TheEnigma31319d ago

This is a good game. Been playing it on the deck.

Actually great list TBH I agree with all 10

I hope one day we get some remakes for the following

The saboteur(with a proper remake and quality of life features this game could be great)
Scarface world is yours
Binary domain ( such a great game with great story)
GUN(this needs a remake)
Space marine 40k(such fun time)

Would also like to suggest adding the mercenary series even the 2nd game which is disliked by many is a fun time

I recently finished Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and found it to be very enjoyable.

The game respected the lore and the gameplay was quite decent.

The color palette was a bit underwhelming (backdrops and setting) and recycled but I think that it deserved better.

Here's hoping for an amazing sequel

Space Marine II !! My most anticipated game of 2023! Woot

Deadliest was an awesome game. Glad to see it get recognition. I remember seeing it in ebay physically I had to buy it.

Snookies12324d ago

NieR: Automata's focus on existentialism hit me so hard, I legitimately had a brief existential crisis from it. It actually had me contemplating life and death. One of the many factors that contributed to Automata overtaking Chrono Trigger as my favorite game of all time. I've been gaming since Bionic Commando on NES. So I never really thought I'd find a game that could usurp Chrono Trigger for me, personally.

gold_drake324d ago

i mean i love the Nier franchise but to contemplate life and death ... maybe a therapist would help? not being funny about it.

Zeldafan64324d ago

Xenoblade Chronicles was what dethroned Chrono Trigger as my favorite rpg ever.

DrDoomer324d ago

these zoomers don't know about Silent Hill 2?

Elda324d ago

TLOU had a couple of touching moments but the entire story wasn't sad to me. But it was a story of survival so I guess the entire predicament of living in those conditions can be considered sad & I guess the same can be said for The Walking Dead..lol. Sekiro,Spec Op & Dark Souls story didn't seem sad to me nor did Nier:Automata. To each their own to how someone interprets a sad story.

VerminSC324d ago

Dude, the main characters daughter dies in his arms in the first 30 minutes of the game. Then 2 brothers die in front of you in a horrible heartbreaking way. Followed by the conclusion where Joel chooses Ellie’s life and dooms mankind!

😂 Not sad at all

goldwyncq324d ago

Sarah’s death was sad, didn’t care about the 2 brothers at all, and I fully support Joel’s decision to save Ellie because mankind was beyond saving at that point anyway, so it was more bittersweet than sad, knowing how it would strain Ellie and Joel’s relationship going forward.

Elda324d ago

For me, the beginning was sad in TLOU everything else was just touching moments. Again as I stated in my initial comment.."To each their own for how someone interprets what is & isn't sad"

HeliosHex324d ago

I found resident evil village to be sad.
