Spec Ops: The Line – Review (360, PS3)

7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: If you thought Spec Ops: The Line would just be another military, third person cover shooter then you would be wrong.  What appears on the skin as an efficient and well designed cover shooter title is, in fact, underneath a fully blown example of how to differentiate what could be a generic title into something that leads by example and pushes the genre forward rather than just drawing from other sources for its competency. The place? Dubai.  The mission?

Spec Ops:The Line

2 October 2012
  • Excerpt: In my opinion, Spec Ops: The Line can hang it’s hat on being worthy and accessible enough to be played through once as well as being worthy of a second playthrough due to the story it tells and the way it comes together, but that second playthrough isn’t going to happen because it’s just not accessible enough.

Spec Ops: The Line review (X360)

5 September 2012
  • Excerpt: And as the mission continuously goes awry and takes an increasing toll on Walker's physical and mental stamina, what was once black-and-white starts to look suspiciously grey. You've personally been walking over hundreds of corpses all day, and making hundreds more. What's one more dead body?

Anime fighting game replaces skill with luck.

Common Sense Media
14 July 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi is a fighting game based on the long-running cartoon anime series Dragon Ball Z . As with most other entries in this video game franchise, this game is comprised of little more than constant battles between characters from the anime. Players can relive intense moments from the TV series in the game's story mode, or just fight against any other character in the game, with no context or story background.

Gory military shooter tackles difficult questions about war.

Common Sense Media
14 July 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Spec Ops: The Line is a third-person military shooter brimming with graphic, blood-soaked violence. Unlike many such games, much of the violence presented here is crucial to a complex commentary that focuses on the nature and potential atrocities of morally grey conflicts and how such situations affect their participants.

Spec Ops: The Line – Life’s A Beach, Then You Die Repeatedly!

The Game Reviews
14 July 2012
  • Summary: SPEC OPS: THE LINE could have been up there with the greats, instead it let itself down on the most basic of things, which is a real shame. If you can tolerate the mechanics, then please indulge yourself in this different and thought provoking game. But if you like your games to work properly, then best to avoid this one.

Spec Ops: The Line Review

IGN Entertainment
13 July 2012
  • Conclusion: All in all Spec Ops: The Line is a very pretty knock off. It has all the pieces of a quality third person shooter without any of the heart. The gameplay is rough and the story is predictable. Though it brings a few fun new things to the table, they are mostly short-lived. The multiplayer is your typical free for all, team death match, and capture the flag type scenarios. One cool thing about multiplayer is that they included sandstorms.

Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi

True achievements
12 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Overall: If I had a physical copy, I couldn't burn this fast enough. It's not fun, it's not worth the $10 I paid for it, and it's not worth your time. Go buy Budokai HD remix instead. Score breakdown: Read the paragraphs to see if you're interested, as they really tell you what's going on with the 1-star.

Spec Ops: The Line

Hooked Gamers
11 July 2012
  • Conclusion: During the development of Spec Ops I was intrigued by this revival but, other than the initial trailer for the game, I couldn’t find myself getting excited by it. It remained elusive for the two years since it was initially announced, hidden behind wave after wave of other larger, more PR-driven titles like Saints Row , XCOM and The Darkness II .
