  • Excerpt: An immense sandstorm rocked the gorgeous Middle Eastern city of Dubai. The event was so catastrophic that members of a battalion, the "Damned 33rd," on their home from Afghanistan decided to aid in relief efforts. Unfortunately, to no avail... In the wake of their failure, an upsetting radio signal found its way out of United Arab Emirates, issued by one John Konrad of the Damned 33rd.

PlayStation Universe

  • Summary: A deeply engaging narrative set in a unique sand-dusted Dubai, Spec Ops: The Line is a terrific adventure that lacks a bit in the gameplay department. It's certainly worth a spot in your summer playlist.
  • Pros: Terrific narrative, Excellent level design, Solid ally and enemy A.I.
  • Cons: Mediocre controls, Cover system is hit or miss, Graphics feel a bit dated

Spec Ops: The Line

6 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Spec Ops: The Line is unabashed in its Heart of Darkness influences. Joseph Conrad’s classic journey upriver through the Congo, and later Vietnam and Cambodia in Apocalypse Now , replaced with the golden sand dunes of a desolate Dubai. The once oil rich metropolis reduced to hell on earth as a series of historic and apocalyptic sandstorms ravage the Middle Eastern paradise and its towering landmarks.

Spec Ops: The Line Review (PC)

Softpedia
1 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Spec Ops: The Line is a competent shooter, but its special story and tone manage to set it apart from the likes of Call of Duty or Gears of War. This is a story about warfare and all of its inherent brutality and grey morality. While there are a few mistakes and the conclusion might not thoroughly explain everything that happened, it’s a great experience that will have you think twice as you mow down enemies in other shooters.
  • Pros: +Interesting story, +Great shooting mechanics, +Varied environment
  • Cons: -Dumb squad mate AI, -Ambiguous ending

Spec Ops: The Line (X360) - Review

VGChartz
1 July 2012
  • Excerpt: If we were to base our impression of war solely on video games, it wouldn’t seem like that bad of a place to be. Despite video games' attempts to mimic the dramatic sensibilities of film, the depiction of war in games rarely goes beyond the trivialization to which we have grown accustomed.

Spec Ops: The Line PC Review

  • Excerpt: is one of those games that was brilliant in concept and in some ways masterfully executed, but a key element is missing that makes it only a bit better than average. Unfortunately, the part that's missing is fun shooting, which is kind of important in a game where you're holding a gun nearly the whole way through.
