It's been 6 months since Dubai was wiped off the map by a cataclysmic sandstorm. Thousands of lives were lost, including those of American soldiers sent to evacuate the city. Today, the city lies buried under sand, the world's most opulent ruin. Now, a mysterious radio signal is picked-up from Dubai, and a Delta Recon Team is sent to infiltrate the city. Their mission is simple: locate survivors and radio for evacuation. What they find is a city in the grip of war. To save Dubai, they'll have to find the man at the heart of its madness - Col. John Konrad.

Gameplay

Spec Ops: The Line is an action-packed Third-Person Shooter that delivers heart pounding physically close combat through a squad-based play mechanic. Players lead a team of three characters, Captain Martin Walker, Lieutenant Adams and Sergeant Lugo. Each character has his own distinct personality and specialized skills, and the mature story they each play a role in explores the dark side of war in a realistic way, in which there are no good outcomes, only hard choices. As missions are completed more advanced weapons and equipment are made available. In addition, the desert environment of Dubai is brought into the game in a unique way with stunning visuals, and dynamic sandstorms that actively effect level designs, and which can be used to help and hinder progress. The vertical interiors of Dubai high rise buildings also provide tactical advantages and risks that can used be by players. Multiplayer campaigns bring new modes and unusual situations and environments to expand the single player experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Descent into Madness... June 28 2012
By D.L. - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
In a market inundated with shooters, I found Spec-Ops: The Line to be a breath of fresh air. Yes, it employs the standard mechanics of most third person shooters (cover, blindfire, melee, squad commands) but the story is what really distinguishes this title.

When I first started playing this game, I admit, I was fairly disappointed because it didn't seem to offer anything that I hadn't seen before. But then a curious thing happened. The story slowly started to put my head in a chokehold and would not let go. This is the problem I have with some of the games out there in the market. Story seems to have taken a back seat to extensive set piece sequences rather that the other way around. Granted, Spec Ops has more than a few of these sequences, but they come from a natural progression of the story.

What started off as standard action movie fare, slowly unraveled in a story of horror and madness. That seems like an overly dramatic statement but that's what I felt as the game continually bombards you with images of violence and questionable moral perspectives under the theme that even the most honorable of men are capable of doing evil things. For a military shooter, this is pretty groundbreaking. Your enemies aren't just faceless sprites that you pick off one by one as you pump your fists in the air. In Spec-Ops, they are just as human as you and I. I didn't feel good playing this game, and I say that with the highest compliment. It was the equivalent of seeing a car crash in slow motion: you can't tear your eyes away from it and you know it's not going to end well, but you're fascinated nontheless.

A couple of gripes that I have is that the game mechanics are very dated. There's not a lot of innovation and quite frankly, the Gears of War series, a comparable genre, does it better. The animations are a bit stiff and don't get me started on the enemy AI. They flank, which is a good thing, but more often than not, they will start shooting at you out in the open which makes them too easy to kill. The game is also fairly short at 5-6 hours. Some may not be able to justify a full retail purchase for a game that you can complete in an afternoon, but the game's story convinced me that it was worth the price.

I really like this game. It's not as polished as it could have been, but I'm glad the developer has taken the time to focus on narrative which distinguishes it from most shooters these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shooter with a great story June 30 2012
By M. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Just got to chapter 8 on the single campaign, after seeing what I've seen and just went through at the start of chapter 8, it's a really good game. First of all, it's a great story, different than what we've seen over the years. Action is intense, and yes, it's a mix of Gears of War and Modern Warfare, but yet feels fresh and different. Give this game a five for the all around package of single palyer campaign. Have not played multiplayer yet, maybe I'm oldschool, but a game has to pull me in with the characters and story first. After all, that's what got me to switch from the playstation to the original Xbox so many years ago, Halo. This game is worth checking out, be it new or used.

Adding on to my previous review as I just beat the game, simply incredible story that makes you feel like you are losing your mind. A mix of Apocolypse Now, Gears of War, Modern Warfare, and Psycho. Great game with plenty of action, blood, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game is Awesome! June 30 2012

To keep it short - if you like:

* lots of gore
* mature story
* game full of moral dilemmas
* rich single player campaign
* 4 different ending
* etc

... then I totally recommend you to buy this game!

Spec Ops the Line, basically GoW for mature audience who tired of multi player "abominations" and wants to enjoy nice single player game mechanics with gruesome story line. This is best war (3rd person)shooter I played in years (last one was Freedom Fighters) and it was long time since I hated and liked main character so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars This game rocks! July 3 2012

I almost didnt get this game after watching a few gameplay videos of the multiplayer, but then I decided to give it a shot. I am very glad that I did. The campaign is long, deep, and very disturbing. It has to be the best story I have ever seen in a game. It really shows that war is not glamorous and that our actions have consequences. In one spot, I was given two options, but choose a third of my own device, and the game adapted. very cool! The shooting mechanic is woderful and every gun has a distinctive feel, and oh how many guns there are. After the wonderful campaign you have multiplayer, which to my surprise, was GREAT also. At first I didnt get into it, but after playing with a few friends grew to love it. There are so many customization options and the controls are fairly fluid. I think i was expecting a battlefield or call of duty multiplayer experience, but this is something different, and that is good. It strays from the cookie cutter shooter approach and delivers a more intimate, deathmatch style arena with a ton of options. In the end, I think it was worth every penny i paid for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars AAA Gaming has a piece of Art Sept. 9 2012

Please ignore my five star "fun" rating, because this game is many things, but it is not fun. If you are looking for something to just have a fun time blasting away dudes you will not find this here. Of course this also means you are precisely the audience at which this game is targeted.

A lot of reviews docked a star or two due to unfun aspects of the game play, and, with respect to those reviewers, they are missing the point of this game. While not even remotely comedic, this game is a stunningly insightful satire of the first person shooter genre. The fact that the first hour very deliberately pretends to be a bad Modern Warfare knock-off is part of this.

Play this game for its profound psychology of both war and video games, its understanding of just how destructive modern war is, and its mastery of tone and mood. Play it because no video game will ever punch you, the player, in the gut so hard for trying to play the hero. You are not meant to enjoy the killing you perform in this game. If you like the thought of playing a game that is art, not fun, buy this game. I will leave you with a quote you get on some of the later load screens.

"Do you even remember why you came to Dubai?"
