It's interesting timing that a game like Spec Ops: The Line should come out right in the middle of a period when the violence in games should be such a focus. At this year's E3 show in LA, more than one journalist noted the excessive violence on display...

Spec Ops The Line survived a lengthy development cycle to deliver an interesting campaign and setting. It's too bad the rest of what it offers is as average as it...

Your two Delta Squad squadmates are screaming at each other. "He's turned us into killers!" one screams, grabbing the other by the front of his shirt. Is he right? You don't really know. It's so hard to tell. You were just trying to do the right...

Spec-Ops: The Line is not your ordinary military shooter. Sure, it plays like the bastard child of Call of Duty and Gears of War, but the style and story could not be any more different. It’s not as if the genre hasn’t flirted with darker subject...

Superficially, Spec Ops: The Line might not be the gold-standard of action games, but it's the bold, thoughtful tone and disconcerting setting that makes it such a welcome relief from all the meatheaded heroics which flood the shelves....

Usually when you describe something as 'multi-faceted' it's a compliment, indicating a depth of personality and intellect in a person or great artistic worth in an object. When we describe Spec Ops: The Line as 'multi-faceted' it's not a compliment....

Spec Ops: The Line is a game rife with contrast. In the sandstorm-wracked city of Dubai, refugees huddle in crude shanties erected in the opulent atriums of luxury hotels, and soldiers construct rough outposts in swanky rooftop clubs. On these...

German developer Yager did quite a surprising thing with Spec Ops: The Line: They gave us something different from the common shooter fodder we're used to. Instead of a global threat with international conflicts or campaigns against terrorist...

Oh, look... another third-person, cover-based shooter. And, yeah, wow, it's another game in the Spec Ops series, a franchise best known for actually still existing, rather than being any good. And, yes, it's another modern military game, set in the...

International Review By overclockers.ru on -

Spec Ops: The Line оказалась игрой с оригинальным и незаезженным до дыр сюжетом, что уже само по себе нетипично для современных шутеров. Разрушенный песчаными бурями Дубай, заполнившие его то ли мародеры, то ли повстанцы, американский агент,...

Капитаны песчаных карьеров Разработчики из YAGER Development начинают, что называется, «за упокой»: бравые американские вояки из «Дельты», Ближний Восток — на этот раз Дубай, разудалая вертолетная погоня в прологе и суровые арабские парни с «калашами»...

Yaz aylarıyla birlikte oyunların da tükendiği zamanlara geldik. Tam da okullar kapandı, gençler bilgisayar başına oturdu derken bu dönemde oyunların birden kesilmesi adalet mi bilemiyoruz. Fakat bir yandan da beden için iyi oluyor diyebiliriz. Zaten okul...

International Review By pcmasters.de on -

Man mchte fast sagen, das Spiel liegt zu Anfang etwas schwer in der Hand. Das Gameplay passt irgendwie nicht zu 100% zum PC, da mehrere Tasten mehrfach belegt sind und auch der Sprint eher komisch wirkt. Allerdings ist diese Skepsis schnell...

Сразу оговорюсь: на момент написания этой статьи игры Spec Ops: The Line еще не было в продаже, так как официальный ее выход состоялся 26 июня. Поэтому все нижесказанное относится только к демоверсии продукта. Которая, надо сказать, выполнила свою...

International Review By Level 7 on 70

Krig är, i motsats till många populärkulturella skildringar, ett helvete och det är vad Yager Development vill visa med Spec Ops: The Line. Kapten Martin Walker är ledare för ett litet förband Delta Force-soldater som skickats till ett katastrofhärjat...

International Review By Gamezoom.net on 80

Das erste große Projekt von Entwicklerteam Yager weiß zu gefallen. Viel zum positiven Gesamteindruck hat die Handlung beigetragen, die sich stark von den typischen Actiontitel-Geschichten „US-Soldaten gegen böse Terroristen/Nazis“ unterscheidet. Während...

Компания Yager Development выбрала наиболее удачное время для выпуска Spec Ops: The Line. Во-первых, лето — время отпусков, поэтому те, кто не смог отправиться в жаркие страны, наверняка обрадуются возможности побывать в Дубае, пусть и виртуальном....

International Review By Magnus.de on -

"Spec Ops" ist ein Spiel, das man nicht nur aufgrund der unterschiedlichen Endsequenzen mehrmals in Angriff nimmt, sondern eins, das im Gedächtnis haften bleibt - als spielerischer Gegenentwurf zu "Apocalypse Now" und als Beweis, dass das Medium...
