First off, I had not been able to find many reviews and feedback of this game. Either it didn't want to be found or the company didn't know how well it would launch after its release.
First things first. The story. It is very original! I do not want to give anything away. I will say.. the characters actions and how it plays out, there are consequences to a point of what you do and do not do. Be tactful and strategic in situations, Talk about an emotional connection this game brings to the gamer behind the conroller.
As you progress the game brings and keeps you in the entire time. There's an emotional and psychological connection that keeps me playing and wanting more with a more-than satisfying thirst quencher.
The gameplay, controls, surroundings, environments, scenery, cutscenes, dialogue, voice-acting and textures are all superb.
I have nothing bad to say! This is one of the most intensive-driven and in-depth emotional/psychological character connections I've played in a videogame in the past year at least. It's like nothing I've played as far as a war-related game is concerned too. I cannot compare it to Gears franchise, it just doesn't fit there. I cannot compare it to Modern Warfare, it's on a new level of creativty, imagination and depth all around.
There is level to level, moment after moment of very intense shooting, massive amounts of blood and with each enemy shot and taken down, there is a large amount of blood misting-like that comes gushing out of their bodies.
If you want a new change from the day to day games, I highly recommend this game! I enjoyed it that much! I appreciate you taking the time to read this review. Rate thumps up for positive feedback please.

Spec Ops is worth a rent. Cool game mechanics, decent story. I have not tried the multiplayer yet. Keep in mind they are planning to release a FREE DLC which is coop version of the campaign. If your still on the fence just play the demo. It will give you a good feel for the game.
While this game will never have the popularity of COD games or Battlefield games, it was enjoyable to plaly. The gameplay is smooth, the story was good, and while the game is primarily a shooter, there is enough differences and weapons to keep that interesting for the duration of the campaign.
