Spec Ops: The Line is a provocative, cinematic third-person military shooter that challenges players’ own morality by putting them in the middle of unspeakable depravity where brutal life-or-death choices take them on a journey into the heart of darkness.
Spec Ops: The Line’s emotional narrative unfolds within the destroyed opulence of Dubai. Once a playground for the world’s wealthiest elite, now Dubai has been reclaimed by Mother Nature, buried underneath the most devastating sandstorm ever recorded. Spec Ops: The Line allows gamers to play as Captain Martin Walker, leader of an elite Delta Force team ordered to infiltrate the treacherous region and bring home U.S. Army Colonel John Konrad.
Heightening the narrative to a fever-pitch are ultra-realistic operations against enemies who are unafraid of death and hell bent on destruction. Players must use a variety of combat tactics, authentic military weaponry and the environment to survive. Spec Ops: The Line offers Dynamic Sand that can be used to thwart foes. A well placed shot can cause an avalanche of sand, but sand has no loyalty and can help or hinder the mission.
Spec Ops: The Line packs a full range of single and multiplayer features complete with competitive and team-based modes, as well as the ability to rank up and customize characters from two different factions. The juxtaposition of Dubai’s bold and luxurious architecture and dizzying heights against the devastation outside, as well as the deep storyline mixed with ferocious combat situations, make Spec Ops: The Line a must-play game.
- Deep, Mature Narrative: The story of Captain Walker’s rescue mission will challenge players to make tough choices between what’s moral and what’s necessary, as Walker’s journey pushes him to his very limits.
- Blasted Opulence: The events unfold in a stunning, haunting setting – the remains of Dubai, once one of the wealthiest cities on Earth, now stripped bare. Dubai’s bold and luxurious architecture still shines through, in spite of the sandstorms threatening all that’s left. Opulent interiors contrast sharply with the vertigo inducing heights and mass destruction outside of the extravagant structures.
- Dynamic Sand: Turn the tables on foes by crushing them under a cascade of sand cast down by a strategically placed shot – but beware of oncoming sandstorms and their gale-force winds. The sweeping sands of Dubai feel almost alive, serving as a powerful but unpredictable force that will both help and hinder the mission, while opening up a variety of new interactions and tactics.
- Brutal, In-Your-Face Action: Join forces with intelligent, resourceful squad mates in fever-pitched gun battles. Accessible combat and squad controls will get you in the fight quickly, where you’ll experience the raw destructive force of your authentic weapons as well as engage in extremely physical close-quarters battles.
- Endless Multiplayer: In addition to the single-player story mode, Spec Ops: The Line packs a full range of multiplayer features, including a never-before-seen mode with unique connections to the main story, a breadth of competitive and team-based modes, as well as the ability to rank up, personalize, and customize characters from two distinctly different factions.

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.
I daren't give anything more away. Play it. Play it now!
Many would look at the cover and/or play the demo and believe to be another shooter following in the footsteps of Call of Duty, Medal of Honour or Battlefield with inspiration from cover shooters like Gears of War or Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. In truth, Yager Development uses the game's mechanics & the trends of modern military shooters to pull the rug straight out from under your feet & unleash a gruelling story that speaks directly to the player in the most striking, even horrifying of ways (especially to those highly aquainted to shooters).
To play the single player of this game is to be given an experience. I could not recommend this game enough to anyone who is not the faint of heart, is in search of a story, or is looking for a shooter that takes many of the common trends and either breaks them in half or exploits them to send a harsh message to the player, hidden or obvious.
As for the multiplayer, I have not played it myself, but I have heard it is not noteworthy, however Co-op modes are provided as addons (free if I recall correctly). But if you're gonna get this game, the single player is where you will find the bulk of the experience.
Without giving anything away for any potential purchasers, its not long before you find out everything is not as it first seems. I'd say the story writers have taken a slight nod from Apocalypse Now here with some of the mind tricks.
Graphics are nice, though not spectacular but the environment effects are well done like the sudden sandstorms you run into. The weapons selection is limited, but they do each have their own characteristics, for example each assault rifle isn't just a reskinning. Prime examples, the M4 series is your baseline weapon, but can have a suppressor fitted, the AK is full auto no frills, the FAMAS can go between full auto or burst fire and has a built in scope, the HK417 has an optional scope and so on.
Would I recommend this? Yes, the only criticism is that the game is not the longest. The multiplayer feels tacked on and servers don't seem to be overpopulated. For those who enjoyed co-op play in the Gears or Army of Two games there is a free downloadable co-op patch from Xbox Live.
The campaign is unlike any other i have seen. It has such a twist it leaves you in shock and with multiple endings for you to discover you can complete it many times without getting bored.
I am not a fan of cod, and havnt been since cod 4. I find cod are rushing games and arnt making decent stories anymore. Unlike spec ops. Spec ops has a unique online mode with sandstorms to change the tide of the battle. There are plenty of challenges to keep you busy and hours of fun ahead.
Spec ops features a gears of war style control system which is easy and effective. Dont think its easy though the difficulties suicide mission and FUBAR prove to be no push overs.
One final point to end my review is that people complain shooting games arnt realistic eg. Bodies not blowing up, people dying the same way no matter how they get killed. Well not on this game. You hit someone with a grenade then expect a blood fountain and very few remains. Score a headshot watch a split second slow mo of the blood burst from the bullet hole.
I pre ordered this game and ive never looked back since. At 18 pound you have a bargain, hope this review has helped......happy shooting :-)
