Spec Ops: The Line is a narrative driven, 3rd-person military shooter, set in a sandstorm ravaged, war-torn, present day Dubai.

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.

Their mission is simple: Locate survivors and radio for evacuation. What they find is a city in the grip of a violent struggle for control. In order to fulfil their mission, they'll have to find the man at the heart of this madness - the elusive Col. John Konrad.

 Moral messed up!

| | See all stevie31's reviews (39)

I will agree with last reviewer that the graphics are astounding,from the skyline buildings of dubai to the blowing of sand-dunes! You watch the footprints disappear with the wind blowing in the sand,the voice acting is great and the mechanics of the weaponry to sound,loading,explosions is top notch! (a bit like gears of war but who cares!) For the AI dont agree must be playing a different game,the enemy is very smart and will surround you to try and flush you out so then their snipers can kill you,or just bomb you! You must RB button your enemy and tell your men to kill and they will,so wheres the problem???? Also you go to your cover and let your men stay at theirs its only sense talking because when you run over and push them out sometimes you will be pushed back because they are hiding! This is only what happens in real-life folks,but the moral choices you can make will keep you playing it 3 times to fully get all your acheivements which are resonable easy to get! Enjoy!

 Makes you feel like a horrible person!

This game truly makes shooting people difficult and removes the "glory" of war that games like CoD have given it. Really this game deserves a lot more credit so that developers create more stories like this.

There isn't anything special about the game play (standard cover based shooter with a few stupid AI friends) but the quality of the story really gives a unique experience that I don't feel any game has given me in a while, even if its the feeling of PTSD.

I can really recommend this game if you're looking for a story to be immersed in!

 Not worth it

When I saw this game was coming out I thought woh its set in Dubai that's cool, but sadly its not as cool as you may think.

Yes visually they have made Spec Ops: The Line look awesome with the detail of the landmarks for example the Burj Al Arab and the Arabic markets. Also the sand blowing across the ground and every ripple is pretty cool.

Spec Ops :The Line can be fun in places as instead of wasting bullets killing people you can shoot out ceilings and windows, then just sit back and watch as the sand does the work for you this is especially handy when there is 5 or more combatants.

The problem I find is based within the combat system, your team the computer (AI) get in your way allot so you end up getting blown up or when they do get out of the way shot before you can even pull the trigger, they stand in the middle of a fire fight and get downed and start dying, you then have a time limit to save them or the game is over (This is Especially difficult when both men are down,cos you cant give the order for the other guy to help) the problem is as soon as you go and help them you get shot and the games over, also they take cover where is easy to get shot. Thats not where the problems end though, the cover system is rubbish for example if you want to get nearer to an enemy without being shot you cant without legging it you cant go from cover to cover like Ghost Recon: Future Soldier or Gears of War and your so called team mates dont even cover you.

Also the aiming system can get annoying as it not that well designed but thats just a little niggle and once your used to the aiming system its not that bad.

If you do get this game though just to warn you if you play Spec Ops: The Line on the hardest levels they enemy seam to have an endless supply of grenades and start lobbing them at you which in turn makes you start swearing at the TV as your about to complete the level then you get a grenade on the head.

Not worth the price if you ask me wait for it to be in the sale or for my pre-owned copy.

I have not had ago on the multiplayer

 A great, unpleasant experience!

When I first payed the demo I was not impressed. It seemed like a lackluster CoD rip-off. But, whoa!, was I wrong.
This game is amazing. A retelling of Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" in the setting of modern Dubai. Much like the spiritual predecessor, Apocalypse Now, it deals with the horror of war and post traumatic stress disorders of veteran soldiers. The Line in the title refers to the line between good and evil, helping and destroying, your experience and the objective reality.
This game speaks to the player through dialogue, visuals, audio design and game mechanics. The overhead-thermalcamera-shooting part that is in most action games today is at once unique, symbolic and disturbing.

I have to say, while not being "fun", this is one of the best games I've played.
