It's been six months since Dubai was wiped off the map by a cataclysmic sandstorm. Thousands of lives have been lost, including those of American soldiers sent to help evacuate the city. Today, the city lies buried under sand - the world's most opulent ruin. Now, a radio signal is broadcasting from Dubai. A Delta Force team is sent to infiltrate the city and find its source.

Spec Ops: The Line has actually become a good shooter. It has Dubai as a setting, which is new. The sand storms are very good and I had fun playing the game, but there are some very frustrating parts. The game is modern and has a lot of action, but you should be careful, as you can play like Rambo. The moral decisions are something fresh. It's also a great game for trophy hunters, because the most trophies are really easy to get. It's a nice third person shooter for all action fans.
The Spec Ops: The Line game is very good! The plot surrounds you and you can tell how a war can change a man's head. The scenarios are rich in detail and artificial intelligence is one of the strengths of the game. Some problems with the mechanics of the camera, but nothing that deprives the player. This game surprised me! Highly recommended!
Very good game happening in Dubaï, which is an original landscape and pretty immersive in comparison others TPS games. This game implores you to make hard and moral choices all along the way. Some kinematics are violent enough, this game really shows both aspects of war, which are extreme brutality and moral choices. Even though it's a linear game, nevertheless it's a fascinating game which is not so easy if you choose the third difficulty mode.
What is making this shooter so special? In my opinion it is the decisions you have to make during the game. Usually you just play through a game like this, but here you actually begin to think about what you have just done or what you are about to do. The game-play is fine, nothing outstanding, but also nothing to complain a bout. Highest difficulty Fubar is quite challenging, however doable so far. The platinum trophy should be no real problem. So all in all, a shooter for all of you who look for something different than all the Call of Duty's and Medal of Honor's.
Spec Ops: The Line is a title that you can find real appeal, but the real quality is only found at the end of the game. The story is definitely worth playing. If you are looking for a third-person shooter in which your goal is to kill as many opponents with satisfactory results, this game will provide a certain satisfaction. Psychological trauma, severe and wrong decisions, anger, hatred and revenge rule this world. It's certainly interesting enough to make my recommendation.
What can I say about this game that you don't already know? The story is fantastic but less than 3 hours short minus the cut screens / trailers to follow the story throughout. Controls are simple and easy to master. There is a lot of single player trophies but no online / multiplayer ones. multi-player is not to bad but could of been better with more players and more extras. The only game modes that as people playing on is the team death-match and death-match only. The titles could of been better as it looked like a child made them. Co-op (needs to be downloaded from the PSN store and not in game). The game is worth picking up for under £20 but the developers need to stay away from the call of duty style game and come up with something unique.
I didn't know what to expect going into this game as I had seen mixed reviews on the internet ranging from 5/10 up to 8.5/10. So when I got down to playing it myself I was swept up within a couple of missions into the unusual setting for a war game (Dubai). The graphics and draw distances are amazing, sandstorms when they are appear look amazing (I found myself took aback by the sandstorms rather than shooting the enemies. The story itself is brilliantly told and you never really see what's coming until it's all explained in the final few scenes and on top of that there are 4 endings as well. I played this through the main three of the four difficulties (normal, suicide and FUBAR difficulty) The latter was a real challenge for me and I don't normally go for the hardest difficulties but on this game I did and I really enjoyed it. The mechanics of the cover and shooting are some of the best I have ever used and are right up the with the Mass Effect and Uncharted series. My only criticism of the game would be the enemies especially on the hardest difficulty tend to spam grenades a bit to often (I had around 10 thrown at me by one guard at one point) Also on the harder difficulties the AI of your team can go a miss as they will sometimes openly run out into the line of fire and in this game you have to go heal them yourselves and running out in the open on FUBAR difficulty is a silly idea. But the good and great points of the game far out weigh the bad points.
Whilst Spec Ops looks just like any other military shooter, inside it is a very different beast. Its story is, I thought, really good, and the comparisons to Apocalypse Now and Heart of Darkness are entirely valid. It's a really good narrative focusing on what war does to people, and the horrors of war - it's not 'Go 'Murica!' But, my frothing love for the narrative aside, the game's pretty good. Gameplay is solid, but not perfect. The controls take a little getting used to, but are perfectly playable. Weapons feel good, and responsive, and landing a headshot causes the game to slow down, highlighting your awesome skills. The AI, both your allies and the enemy, are okay. Enemies tend to stand still a bit, but often outflank you, and co-ordinate their attacks and you will die. You are able to give your allies basic commands (Kill my target, suppress the enemy), adding a slight tactical edge to the gameplay. Graphics are pretty good- the Unreal Engine doing what it always does. The highlight is the location and art style. Ruined Dubai is actually pretty beautiful and crazy, and the locations differ throughout the game. The soundwork on the game is just as good, with Nolan North (of half-tuck and stabby-assassin fame), giving a really good performance as a soldier struggling to deal with the situation. Its got some really good rock songs on too, which is cool. Basically, however average this all might sound, I loved the game. The story is something truly unique, especially amongst this genre, and I really hope you'll give this game a go.
