Spec Ops: The Line Review

Hi, my name is Nik and today i am reviewing:

Spec Ops: The Line is a very generic third-person shooter, with some unusual storytelling techniques.
The game starts, right after the biggest sand storm, that ever hit Dubai. The 33rd where send in, to investigate the situation, but they never came back. That is where you come in, as Captain Walker, the commander of a three man Delta force group. At first you're mission is reconnaissance, then it turns to find and rescue. And then it goes FUBAR and no one knows, what the hell is going on. 

But what is really interesting and unique, is the way the story is presented. Spec Ops tries to show the horrors of war, in a realistic and believable fashion and it does a pretty good job. For example, if you listen you're enemies talking before combat. You'll realize that they are just like you - soldiers following orders. Another example is the chatter, that you have with your squadmates, Adams and Lugo, and the reflection that the current situation is leaving on them. 
I can sit here and give you examples, but its best just to experience it. At then end of the day, that is good story telling and its refreshing to see in a third-person shooter. 

Speaking of the part, this gameplay is paynefully standard. Its just cover based shooter, like gears of war, or army of two. There is one interesting mechanic - the storms. When they appear, you're vision is limited, you can't order you squad and you have difficulties when aiming. 

One of the better things, is the level design. The ruined five star hotels, converted to refugee camps, really enhance the feeling of destruction, man made, or otherwise.
The graphics also look really good. The lighting and particle effect are of high quality, the textures are really high resolution and the game looks good in general. 

To top it all of, Spec Ops: The Line is a third-person shooter, with interesting storytelling techniques and good graphics, bout of them add up to the overall feeling of the game. Alas the gameplay lets it down a bit, because its just too normal, too generic.

 I hope you liked my review of Spec Ops: The Line.
