Fun game, excellent graphics, excellent voice acting. Not a sandbox game, you're on a rail, but fun and free with PS+. I'm almost finished I think, chapter 13 I believe, but if you like shooters should be at least a rental for sure. The MP is kinda different and worth a look.

There is also a demo available, at least it was a while back.

I downloaded it, but have yet to play it. About how long does it take to finish?

I'm loving it! Graphics are just okay, but the story is fantastic. Better than I expected, and a wonderful game for PS+ members!

I wrote a pretty long review about it in a thread here a while back. I thoroughly enjoyed the Spec Ops experience as a deconstruction of the shooter. Youre about to get to the interesting stuff. The game is pretty special. Glad you are enjoying it.

Really I think the graphics are excellent, but often I am wrong about this, I think some of you have a more trained eye.

About 7-8 hours for me.

Then again, I started playing it right after I finished God of War: Ascension, haha. Extremely stark difference!

I'm on chapter 12 or 13 and I think it's great so far.

Sweet, I just beat Lost Odyssey and this will be perfect to play before BioShock Infinite.

I really liked that game. I should try to finish a FUBAR run this weekend.

finished last week. very surprised by the game. where the game really stands out is the story. the game play was somewhat generic, but i really enjoyed it.

MoultonHawk says:
Fubar run ? Is that a gun ?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 18, 2013 12:17:57 PM PDT
I actually bumped the difficulty down to casual since I enjoy the game more for its story than its combat.

The Drizzle says:
pretty sure its the hardest difficulty

Sort of playing it.

SPOILERS

I got to the rooftops, cleared the snipers, crossed over, the helicopter dropped off more dudes, I dies a couple times, took a break, and then somehow got sidetracked with other games. I'll probably try to wrap this game up next week though.

Loved this game, probably my favorite straight-up TP cover-based shooter until Binary Domain.

The Drizzle says:
towards chapters 13/14, i was dying a whole lot at the same points, and they kept asking me if i wanted to lower it, but i try to beat everything on normal first.

usually i die because i am impatient. i was just amazed with all the little things the game did. after finishing, i went to the internets to see what i missed(scenic, not gameplay wise), and there was enough to make me want to play the game again down the road and check these little things out.

That rooftop battle was the hardest for me in the game.
