Verry Verry short, but I like THE story!
Story was lame. Ending made it seem like your choices mattered, but the game forces you to kill or be killed during certain quicktime events. If my choices aren't my own, why would I bother feeling emotion for them in the epilogue? Don't waste your money. It's a Gears of War clone, only shorter and more frustrating .
I'd say people over rate the story but it was pretty good and well delivered. I have to say though, it did not make me stop wanting to explode enemies heads off.
@bredlypath Maybe you did not noticed that ending where noone got killed. Have you even played this game. Was he dead or not for most of the game? Why other your companions did not heard the Colonel for whole the time? Why after helicopter crash is everything stranger and stranger?
Welcome to hell.
I've read some of the comments here and someone mentioned that they don't have the choice for the ending to change. Remember, this is a linear, FPS game. But it does have four possible endings. People who say that this is overrated are mistaken. It may have the recognition for the great delivery of the story, but this isn't what you call a "box office hit". It was rumored that it was a financial failure for a Triple AAA game since most titles have a budget of around a million. They did not disclose the official budget, yet fans and critics alike firmly believe that this was a flop. Either way, this game is a cult classic among enthusiasts and story-driven junkies. The game is short but it doesn't feel boring. The story and gameplay are jam-packed with quality action and dabbles around the topic of the horrors of war. You don't need a long game to be fully immersed nor fill in unnecessary side missions to be interactive in the game. Spec Ops: The Line is a solid piece when it comes to "dystopian" military shooters. A combination of reality and fiction.
This is a fantastic cover-based shooter with a very immersive story.
