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.
I daren't give anything more away. Play it. Play it now!
