Eh

  • Summary: Didn't like the single player. But the multiplayer did introduce a different kind of shooter. It was an okay game.

Fun game, typical shooter

  • Summary: I enjoyed the story somewhat, typical desert shooter, and the gameplay was without difficulty at Normal and easy to figure out what your goals were. Might play it again once it sits for a bit, if only to complete the achievements, but I'm not dying to throw it in & play it daily. Enjoy!

Interesting idea marred by mediocre gameplay

  • Summary: Taking inspiration from Joseph Conrad's "Heart Of Darkness", Spec Ops: The Line mixes some great voice acting, compelling storytelling, and cool characters with some extremely middle-of-the-road graphics and gameplay. As I powered through the campaign I found myself hurriedly trying to finish the chore of gameplay so I could advance the story and hear some of the characters flesh out the plot.

Let Down

M. Wright "Rob Johnston", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I bought this game based on good reviews and figuring it was perfect for me as I do enjoy third person shooters but was dissappointed by it. In my opinion it tries to take many ideas from Gears of War but fails on many fronts, for example the cover system is flawed and you'll find yourself sticking to the wrong cover thus getting shot or running into a cover you didnt select, Once you press A your character will continue to sprint even after you've realeased the button...

  • Summary: OK game with some interesting challenges. But it's just a shooter after all so nothing too different. Lot of sand !

Overall OK but let down by a poorly designed combat system.

  • Summary: I bought Spec Ops: The Line because I wanted a shooter that was less linear and a game where your decisions matter. It delivers on this to some extent with a number of choices in the game that determine the way the story unfolds. However, within each mission you don't really have to do anything except survive and get to the end.

"Fantastic Gameplay"

Brett, Mighty Ape

  • Summary: Bought the game after reading the reviews, was impressed with the graphics and the gameplay, really enjoyed the squad command feature, but did find that sometimes my squadmates went off to find additional targets getting themselves killed. Having been to Dubai myself I couldn't believe how detailed the environment was and being able to use your surroundings to gain the tactical advantage was great.

Ok needs to be cheaper

  • Summary: When I saw this game was coming out I thought woh its set in Dubai that's cool, but sadly its not as cool as you may think. Yes visually they have made Spec Ops: The Line look awesome with the detail of the landmarks for example the Burj Al Arab and the Arabic markets. Also the sand blowing across the ground and every ripple is pretty cool.
