Midgety Review – Spec Ops: The Line

Third-person Shooter

The Lionel.


Initially a by-the-numbers third-person shooter, Spec Ops: The Line soon finds its own identity thanks to the excellent sand-fucked Dubai setting and unsettling, morality-fueled storyline. As the events unfold, the plot definitely makes you think about what you have seen and done and that helps justify giving Spec Ops a chance. The fairly generic, third-person shooting mechanics are very solid but somewhat less innovative though (the usual cover-based machine gun and RPG type affair with the occasional turret bit and helicopter boss battle) and the game’s final act may well see you giving up in frustration thanks to an out-of-whack difficulty spike and badly-signposted objectives. Overall though, this is worth a look. If found on the cheap, that is. Rich

    I’ve got this in my pile. Now that all the big games I’m interested in are out of the way once I’ve finished Dishonored I might give this one a bash.
