Spec Ops: The Line

GamesRadar
14 August 2012
  • Excerpt: There’s nothing wrong with violence in video games. It is, after all, pretend. You’re not killing someone; you’re firing if/then statements out of texture-wrapped polygons into skeletal meshes until the in-game physics kick in. There’s no reason to feel bad or reflect; it’s all a puppet show.
  • Pros: Interesting, well-developed characters, The engaging narrative is bold, and flies in the face of its contemporaries, Beautiful locations and fantastic set piece battles
  • Cons: The spotty cover system, Sand amounts to being nothing more than an explosive barrel, Controls aren’t strong enough to make multiplayer worthwhile

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.
