This game. This game! This is how a shooter is supposed to be made. Engaging characters and story, excellent gun-fighting and gameplay, and a twist that made me sick with disgust at myself and Captain Walker. I loved it!
After the half-way point, things go to $#!t. A spiral of madness and death opens up that you walk to the end. Even the loading screens after Chapter 10 or so start to take the piss out of you by passive-agressively insulting all you've done in the game when you're reloading after being killed. Plus, unlike most shooters, it has multiple endings depending on the choices you make!
This game is a must for fans of shooters, horror, and war games. At only $20, this game is a better deal than any CoD or Modern Warfare game out on the market. It has replay value, fun gameplay such as zip-lining, commanding your troops to snipe or bomb enemies, and interesting enviroment kills such as the standard "shooting fuel tanks to make them explode" but also a new "shoot out glass to drop sand and stun enemies." It has numerous weapons, and while ammo is sometimes hard to come across, the enemies drop weapons with each one you kill, so you can their bodies. You can only carry 2 guns at a time, but this doesn't take much away from the game, giving you incentive to try out the various firearms and find the ones you like best. My only real complaint gameplay wise is that the Sticky Grenade can be more trouble than it's worth, as it has a smaller explosion range and distance to be thrown than a Flash Bang or Frag, and no bounce. It is fun to stick them onto a foe and watch them flail around, though.
As for the characters, Spec Ops makes you sympathise with all of them. Even the villains have understandable motivations, and you wonder if you'd act any differently in this situation. Captain Walker, Lieutenant Adams, and Sergeant Lugo are people, with feelings and emotions that they display through both cutscenes and in-game banter. They are far superior to the burly, no-name, buzz-cut scrubs of the current FPS.
This game gripped me like no other. I got it (from a friend) on March 1st. It is now March 4th, and I have been playing almost non-stop to finish it. I had to see the ending. I had to experience what was the culmination of Captain Walker's actions and struggles. I had to. This game is the most engaging thing I've played all year, and I'd argue it is going to be an all-time favorite, right up there with the other games of my childhood I remember fondly.
With FPS's pedalling boring stories, gameplay and characters that are little more than cardboard cutouts, Spec Ops: The Line makes me hopeful for the future of gaming, and sick to my stomach for the in-game atrocities I witnessed and committed. You want a good game? Buy this one.
