Make Your Choices in the Face Cataclysm and War

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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One man's descent into Hell June 30, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've shopped at Amazon for many years; I've never written a review. In fear that many would pass up this gem in favor of bigger budget, more highly publicized titles, I've decided to break that record.

If you're an "old school" gamer like myself, you may remember the Spec Ops series as (mostly) buggy and nearly unplayable budget titles dating back to the late nineties. Yager and 2K Games have changed all of that, and oh, it's sooooo for the better.

Spec Ops: The Line stars off with all of the ingredients of many third person shooters. There's a generous helping of rock music on the soundtrack, a sprinkling of one liners, etc. By now (if you play many action games) I'm sure you can recite the cliches in your sleep. Then the flavor starts to change. Spec Ops has been touted from the beginning as a story focused game. Yeah, yeah; I'd heard the same thing about Homefront. There's where the comparisons end; Spec Ops has an amazing story (which ends up being the main draw of the game).

STORY:
If you've seen the trailers, you know that Delta Force Captain Martin Walker (voiced by the always amazing Nolan North) and his squad (Lugo and Adams) are sent into a Dubai ravaged by sandstorms in order to recon the failed evacuation of the city (carried about by one U.S. Military Colonel John Konrad). What follows are a series of twists and turns that display all of the confusion, depravity, and destruction of war. You as the player even get to participate by making decisions; Who will you save, and who will you let die? But there's no morality meter here. KOTOR this is not.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ugliness of War September 3, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Spec Ops the Line on the surface appears to be like your typical cover based third person shooter. The main characters of this story like many in this genre are an elite group of soldiers. The player takes on the role of Captain Martin Walker the leader of a three man Delta Force team made up of 1st Lieutenant Alphanso Adams (a heavy gunner) and Staff Sergeant John Lugo (a marksman and translator whose fluent in six languages).

The three are sent on a reconnaissance mission in the United Arab Emirates specifically to the city of Dubai which was devastated 6 months prior by a sandstorm. The objective on the surface is familiar territory for anyone who's ever played a third person shooter. The three man delta team is sent into a foreign country to locate survivors, deal with insurgents, and to find out the fate of the 33rd Battalion of the United States army which went missing while evacuating the city of Dubai.

To achieve these goals the player will be able to engage in standard cover based third person shooter game mechanics. This means that the player will be able to use high tech weapons and vehicles. The player will also be able to use team based strategies to overcome enemies and a cover system to safely advance forward in situations where there's heavy fire.

There are some very important things that set this game apart from others in its genre. The first one I'll discuss is this game's unconventional take on war. War in most third person shooters is treated as something fun, manly, and entertaining. Also the enemies aren't portrayed as much more than an effective way to test out different types of guns, knives, and bombs.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Horror June 30, 2012
By Greg
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been waiting for this game for a long time.

Pros:
I really liked the setting in Dubai.The randomness of the sandstorms and the ability to use sand as a weapon make the combat very enjoyable.
The story of this game is one of the best I have played in a long time.Everything you do effects the game and your AI squad.There is no right or wrong in this game.The creepy DJ was a great part of the game as was the intel found throughout the levels of the game.This game really does portray the horrors of war and the human suffering.There are many twist to this game.That motivated me to play until I finished the game.
Music was great in this game some old some new.Most of the songs really got me into the level I was playing.
Voice acting was top notch with Nolan North great as always.I liked that one had to conserve ammo in Dubai.
Not to worry there is plenty to pick up from defeated enemies.I liked doing executions on enemies in hand to hand combat.I really liked when you threw a grenade it would make a dust cloud to blind enemies.

Cons:
Graphics were very dated but good.Frame rates were smooth and no glitches.
The backgrounds were done well and looked great.But enemies all looked the same and not much detail in them.
The cut scene graphics looked good.
AI could have been better.Don't get me wrong one had to take cover or else.Enemies had the habit of running in the open.And squad mates would do the same at times.
Sound was ok,the music sounded great but sometimes the voice acting was very faint.I had to turn up the TV to hear stuff.Then turn it down for combat.Explosions were very dull.The cover system was spotty my advice go into cover on your own.
