A solid shooter with an engaging story about the darker side of war.

Summary: I originally passed over this game when it came out because I figured it was just another Call of Duty clone. Turns out, I was wrong. This game avoids what I consider the two main flaws of CoD. Those are 1) an incoherent story, and 2) chaotic gameplay. Spec Ops' story explores the darker side of war. The line (as implied by the title) between good and evil, right and wrong, is not always so clear cut.
Summary: 60 second review: This is an 'on-rails' shooter that tells a great story. You generally play about 15 minutes between cutscenes, and the game is around 8 hours long.. reminds me of Metro 2033, and in a way, Alan Wake (without the extremely poor (!!!) gameplay). To me, the gameplay was better than Gears of War - sticking to cover felt natural every time and there are plenty of weapon choices.
One of the best military FPS I've played in years.

Summary: I picked it up the first day of the sale and finished it last night. I really enjoyed it. The combat is fun, enemies are smart enough to change tactics but not too smart to know when and where you are at all times and the story is quite different from the usual modern military shooter. It is quite dark and it does not end pretty just for the sake of it.
Summary: I have played the demo for Spec Op: The Line and was not impressed. When I saw it on Amazon for %50 i had to look into more reviews. After reading them they all pretty much have said how the voice acting and the story line was very good! Even tho it's a short game and the combat is nothing special, I am very glad I did buy it for the story line!!! VERY GOOD!!! CoD and BF3's Campaigns where bleh, but Spec Ops The Line was impressive!! Also this is not for kids!
Summary: Spec Ops: The Line is a refreshing new take on third person shooters. Although the gameplay itself does not quite present anything new, it tells a great story accompanied by a varied and beautiful soundtrack. 1. Story: 10/10 The story is highly original by video game standards (although it has been seen in a very popular movie and a classic book).
Summary: If you like Gears of War style gameplay this is the game for you. A must buy for $25 for pc owners. Pros -great story -great gameplay -7-8 hours of campaign cons -multiplayer sucks Great game at a great price.
Summary: I was expecting this game to be a mediocre, run of the mill, third person shooter. I saw it on sale on here for half off the weekend after it's release, and I picked it up. It has been a long while since I've looked forward to getting home to play a game, and this game makes it so. The story does not drag. It is enticing and interesting.
