Thanks Amazon, you never cease to reward my business!
For $9.99 I can't complain too much, but if I paid full price for any of the games, I would be ticked.
So far I've only played maybe 1/3 to 1/2 of Spec Ops The Line, and while I read it was good but "disturbing." I sort of wrote that off as I am not easily bothered, but wow, was I wrong. It's not a question of bloody and guts, but without to avoid posting any spoilers I'll just say the moral grey area you are forced into really disturbs me, I'm not sure if it's because of my military background or not, but that surely can't make the feelings better.
of course I LOVE the Bio-Shock games
but Spec-Ops is one of the MOST underrated games ever imo
the mechanics of run-n-cover are some of the best ever
some reason people never really latched on to this game
i have a theory of how Multi-Player is ruining gaming but i will hold my tongue
Take the MORAL high road the first play through and play it through again of not so much a good guy
this game has replay value i haven't seen in years
and Bio-Shock doesn't need anymore reviews , their just some of the BEST games EVER !!!
Spec Ops The Line is much lauded for it's harrowing adaptation of Conrad's Heart of Darkness, set in the guise of a boring military shooter. Well, they succeeded with the latter, but I'm still not impressed by the story, or the final reveal. Was 2K trying to be super clever by making the combat numbing as a commentary on our FPS diet? Was this bland shell of a videogame nothing more than a bait and switch for some kind of moralizing message?
Uh, guys, it's still a dull video game at the end of the day.
Chalk it up to game journos/pundits giving the narrative more literary/thematic weight than it ought to deserve. It shouldn't be a critical darling because it was underrated, and it shouldn't be a critical darling because many people "didn't get it". I got it, I just find the game wanting still.
As for BioShock 1 and 2? GFWL were removed in the latest Steam update, so these are now much easier to recommend. 2 even got cheevos, wooo.
I bought this bundle for Spec Ops: The Line and I have to say it was totally worth it. The game is a pretty solid third person shooter, but also fairly generic in this regard. For anyone who's played Killswitch on the PS2 or original XBOX it's gameplay is nothing new by a long shot. Where this game shines is it's story. It's involving, confusing (somewhat), and mildly emotional.
Bioshock 1 is a great game, single player only.
Bioshock 2 is an ok game, but it adds multiplayer to the Bioshock world.
Spec Ops: The line Great single player. Not super long, less then 10 hours. Very great single player campaign, very poor multiplayer, but this is not a game you buy for multiplayer.
My 5 star rating is for the bundle/price.
Bioshock - 5/5
Bioshock 2 3/5
Spec Ops 5/5
