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.

I was expecting a cool and good military shooter, but I was so wrong, thankfully, this game is so much more, and after the first play through there is so much so see if you get the "right" ending, so much which forshadows everything, they've done a lot to hide some cool stuff, please to all who like shooters, this is a great game.
Nothing new or innovative here in terms of the third person shooting, and the multiplayer isn't really worth it. However the story is what sells this game. Believable characters with an engaging story full of twists, turns some pretty disturbing visuals. I also liked that the voice of Desmond in Assassin's Creed plays that of the lead character Walker. An enjoyable experience.
Spec Ops: The Line is the best adaption from a book I've seen in a long time. The voice acting (English) is awesome and the graphics are good. This shooter does everything right to give you an aftershock and longer lasting questions. It's a game that makes you think, and let me tell you the story is really like a kick in the guts. The endings will shock some people, because there are different choices to make along the way which will produce different endings.
I had played the demo for Spec Ops: The Line and found it enjoyable, so kept an eye out for it at a lower price since its release last summer. Whilst essentially a meat and potato 3rd person shooter with its complement of pistols, rifles, shotguns and grenades, the storyline offers a little more to get to grips with than the average military title, certainly avoiding the sub-Bond histrionics of the various CODs. Still, despite trying new things in terms of plotting The Line hardly wins prizes for originality, being an overt adaptation of Apocalypse Now, swapping the jungles of 'nam for the post catastrophe sand blasted ruins of Dubai, but still involving a journey to the heart of the city to confront the rogue colonel Kurtz with a lot of questionable moral actions along the way, and fuzzy, hazy pop soundtracking the action sequences. There are a few binary 'moral choice' moments familiar to fans of modern RPGs and some fourth wall self-referencing (think of the original Bioshock's twist and you're in the same area), but most importantly the gameplay mechanics are solid, the game is short and action packed and it's a fun ride that offers a few ideas along with the bangs. This is well worth a purchase at the low price point.
I loved Spec Ops: The Line, the gruelling yet fascinating story is unlike anything you'll find in a shooting game. The same can be said for the setting, a Dubai torn apart by sandstorms and Civil War makes for a fascinating and diverse setting which never ceases to impress. The multiplayer is pretty decent. I implore you to buy this game, it plays just like Gears of War but boasts a far more memorable story. One of my best purchases this year.
This game is heavy.....emotion heavy. You will be torn to make decisions that basically make you choose the lesser of two evils. No way is the right way as you will discover. It has alternate endings which will give you at least two play-throughs which is the only reason why I would play it again. This game is not for the faint hearted and is definitely worth a play as it raises real questions about how we treat civilians in war situations and the pressures it puts on our soldiers.
I really liked Spec Ops: The Line. The story is great but the multiplayer is only ok. The campaign took a while to complete which is good and I enjoyed the soundtracks too. The multiplayer could be better but the game focuses more on the story side. It has extra features like multiplayer. Overall, I rate it 4 stars for a great storyline and little extras like multiplayer.
Spec Ops: The Line is undoubtedly one of the most underrated games out there. I haven't seen any reviews that called this game bad, but usually they end with "average" or "above average". I can't agree as this game is way better. The strongest thing is the story, it's fresh and original. Another great thing is the sand. We are all used to water in games, but what the developers did with the sand here is just awesome. The first drawback is the graphics, another is the achievements. Once you get one, the game freezes for a moment. Not enough drawbacks to lower the score. Buy it and you'll like it.
Yes it's just another first person shooter but this one has a story line that will capture you from the start and make all that running and gunning worthwhile. There are many nice easy achievements/trophies to gather as soon as you start playing and as you progress through the game it calls upon your shooting skills to gather even more. The game also asks you to make moral choices, do you shoot or not? Well worth a buy.
The setting, a disaster stricken Dubai was a bit different and initially the game appears to be a standard over the shoulder third person shooter in the vein of Gears or War or the Army of Two series. Basically in terms of mechanics the game engine is similiar but it's the story thats the main draw here. Without giving anything away for any potential purchasers, it's 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. Would I recommend this? Yes!
Spec ops: the line, shows an interesting mixture of action, drama and psychological elements which thrills the player until the final shoot down in a destroyed Dubai. Plenty of achievements that will keep the player busy for many hours and unlockable difficulties increase the challenge and the adrenalin. Over all it kept me busy for a week but it will be shorter if you are an hardcore player. If you liked Gears of War, The Line, will surprise you.
The single player is fantastic. The characters are likeable and you fell for them as things descend further into madness. Solid shooting mechanics and interesting environments. The multi-player is a throw away and feels unpolished and broken. There are some glimmers of fun but they are just bogged down by frustrating gun play.
One of the things I was most looking forward to in this game was it's story line, which I'd heard was unusually good for this type of game. The ability to make difficult discussions is a good one but I felt that it didn't really alter the story, just offering a different cut-scene and reason to play through the game a second time. The game-play is solid but I did encounter a few difficult moments where I would re-load the same checkpoint to get past it. It's definitely worth a play and the price!
As you can see by the title, I have only played the demo. I can't say if it has improved from this but one would assume it would have had to. It was just really poor in honesty. If you want an FPS then look beyond this to more popular titles. I couldn't even finish the demo I thought it was so poor. I am a BF3 boy though so am used to a very high standard of graphics and game play.
From start to finish, Spec Ops: The Line is quality and the story hooks you in. There's allot of inspiration taken from the Apocalypse Now movie which is well worth watching before playing this game. Spec Ops really has you in it's grasp. Really enjoyed this title, infact it's the best story campaign I've played in a long time. The multiplayer is great fun also and is more bare bones nothing fancy but fun to play and has dynamic sand storms ect during gameplay. I now need to sink my teeth into that now since the campaign is completed. Oh really enjoyed collecting audio tapes throughout campaign really helps to support the atmosphere and story... Buy it now!
