Crosses the line first,
This review is from: Spec Ops: The Line - Including Fubar pack (PS3) (Video Game)
Every now and then a game comes along and surprises you in a good way, admittedly it doesn't happen much in this hype driven age but Spec Ops the line left me pleasantly surprised after completing it.
I was expecting another Call of Modern Operations game and there is a fare share of heroic action sequences but it is much more than that as a whole. For a start the story is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with not only in the shooter genre which is not known for its strength in campaign stories but in gaming as a whole and in particular this generation where storytelling has been ushered away in favour of online modes and motion capture.
It is also a thing of beauty graphically in terms of landscape, destruction and the well advertised sand storms. I would even go as far as to compare it to Uncharted 3 in terms of capturing the essence of it location perfectly.
Are there any flaws to this game apart from it following the generic short campaign mode which has plagued shooter games in recent years? Well I can honestly say there are not many and those that I did encounter namely some dodgy collision detection were few and far between.
Definitely worth a buy and shows what can be done if developers dare to think out of the box for a minute.
