Spec Ops The Line

This is an entertaining game, it has some cool features but it is also lacking in some areas (this keeps it from being an elite game). The Good: The story line in this game is definitely a little bit different, from the beginning you never really know if your actions are right or wrong, and who is or isn't on your side, at times I even wondered if my squad was really trust worthy. The bad: This is not an open world, having become spoiled by other titles where I could decide where to take cover or look for items this is a huge drawback to me. I often felt as though I was being herded through the game. There is a nice variety of weapons, some of which have some nice accessories. However take aim and make your shots count... ammo boxes are few and far between and when you do find one they don't completely refill your ammo. It also seems that your enemies are rarely carrying the same weapons as you are so you are constantly having to decide whether to keep your weapon or switch to another. Lastly there are a few times when for various reasons that you are left with just a handgun or none at all. Now I know this is not a new thing in games, it does seem to happen too frequently and often times you are dropped into a extremely hot situation with little to no defense. The look of the game is solid but not overly impressive, I also felt that the voice acting was lacking and would have benefited from at least some B-level actors. Lastly the campaign mode is kind of short, at the most 10 hours for the average gamer. Overall a solid enjoyable game but don't look for this title to blow your mind

my review is on campaign only ..the gameplay is standard for 3rd person cover shooter but if u have played gears of war its basically the same with very few glitches...the story makes this game shine and the choices u make feel like they really affect game...the last difficulty(since i cant type the name of it) is very challenging and u feel rewarded when u finish it .....mp feels tacked on but maybe camping behind cover is just not my mp style.....so it maybe good just not my cup of tea
