Spec Ops: The Line

 

An immense sandstorm rocked the gorgeous Middle Eastern city of Dubai. The event was so catastrophic that members of a battalion, the "Damned 33rd," on their home from Afghanistan decided to aid in relief efforts. Unfortunately, to no avail... In the...

Spec Ops: The Line is unabashed in its Heart of Darkness influences. Joseph Conrad's classic journey upriver through the Congo, and later Vietnam and Cambodia in Apocalypse Now, replaced with the golden sand dunes of a desolate Dubai. The once oil rich...

Usually when you describe something as 'multi-faceted' it's a compliment, indicating a depth of personality and intellect in a person or great artistic worth in an object. When we describe Spec Ops: The Line as 'multi-faceted' it's not a compliment....

The ending, as it was (though relatively predictable) better than expected and provided good closure. Plus, there's more than one of them, which is nice.

Spec Ops: The Line Preview

 

There are a lot of shooters out there. Some just give you a gun and tell you to shoot. Others put you in a position you never want to be in and make you live it.

Spec Ops: The Line First Impressions

 

We travelled to Berlin for a first look at developer Yager's dark third-person shooter.

Spec Ops: The Line

 

As the bodies of American Servicemen and innocent civilians begin to mount up, that distrust soon turns to anger; and in time, outright insubordination.
