So happy that this is as good as I remember it, arguably some of the stories show their age a bit, but the quality of his writing carries them through. Fantastic stuff from a master.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just ignore all the one star reviews, 11 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So, just ignore all the one star reviews because either (a) there was a huge patch on day one or (b) their graphics card isn't good enough. You want to know about the game, right? Right.
It's blinding, end of. Ludicrous, over the top, yet with way more plot and emotional depth than I was expecting. Not enough, however, to in any way detract from it's blindingly ludicrous over-the-top-ness. It's stupid fun, with funny lines and Nazis in power armour and stupid guns and ... everything.
You want to kill Nazis in power armour, right? Right. You want to save the world, right? Right. Then this is the game for you.

And yeah, the patch on day one was really, really f***ing annoying and yeah, I had some graphics tear, and yeah the game takes up 40 MB or something but you know what.? Doesn't matter. Nazis! In Power Armour! Revenge! Shagging! Hang on, that sounds like the worst night out ever .... Nazis in Power Armour revenge shagging. Wow. Or maybe Revenge Shagging was Nazis in Power Armour's tricky second album. Anyway, tangent. Game amazing good fun, buy. Regrets = none.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was never a fan ... until this album, 18 Mar. 2014
Couldn't really have cared less about their output prior to this ... sure they churned out some decent pop music, but this? THIS? To misquote Hunter S .... I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they clearly worked for Dave Gahan. All of DM's best stuff came from here on, IMO natch.

Awesome album. And I don't like the band, so you can take it from me, this is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars See the review by "Nelly", 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seriously, that person nailed the review for this game. And now it's less than a tenner, if you're the kind of person who thinks COD and Battlefield* are a load of old b****cks and hunger for a single player shooter that has some actual depth to it, look no further. This is a one-off, never to be repeated I suspect. One word of warning: stick with it, it only really "gets going" about half way through, but oh my, does it ever get going.

*(Apart from the multiplayer, natch).

In case you missed it, here's Nelly's review again:

"You could be forgiven for thinking this is just another CoD/Battlefield clone. You couldn't be more wrong. In fact, it's a savage critique of the modern war shooter genre.

Before I go any further, however, I should say that this game is not fun in any traditional sense. It's a drama, focussed on the exploration of post traumatic stress. Spec Ops forces you to look at how unreal modern war shooters really are, and delights in telling you how pathetic you are for believing that being an armchair soldier makes you a badass."

(cheesy quaver = raver. In case you weren't sure).

Brilliant re-imagining of deep house for a new century. Straight-up fantastic.

I love these two and I'm an old man :-D (Well, my kids think I am at 47). Simply awesome album, Aluna's voice staying just the right side of fey without sliding into annoying, really well-crafted songs and a fantastic cover of "This is how we do it"!

4.0 out of 5 stars 2nd CD is a waste, but the main album is awesome, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my daughter after we were both really impressed with them playing live. Fantastic album. 2nd CD is a load of old nonsense though, some truly pointless remixes
