After finishing Spec Ops: The Line on the PC, here are my thoughts.
I did not at all expect this game to be what it was. It seems to be a standard 3rd person shooter, but ends up being this trip through the emotions of a soldier in a warzone as choices that seem clear at the time turn out to be grey areas. This game takes the concept of “the road to hell is paved with good intentions” and let you as a player make some of those choices, making you feel that you are responsible for the results of your actions.
I cannot say much more without spoiling the game for anyone who might want to play it. Therefore, I am just going to say that I really liked this game. With a great soundtrack, nice visuals, and an engaging storyline, it kept dragging me in wether I wanted it or not.
If you are looking for a mind-less shooter, look at something else. If you like a good story, and you think that all war-based games are the same, give this one a chance and I think you will be pleasantly surprised. I know I was!
