Must I say to start with that Spec Ops: The Line is one of the best shooters I've ever played if not the best...This game from the beginning is a electrifying intense third person shooter, it wins on all levels with phenomenal voice acting from nolan north and others! The action is well paced and never excessive to the point of being cliched... it's extremely brutal with some very cringe inducing yet satisfying finishing moves along with an abundance of heads exploding!!! Spec Ops also has very epic multiplayer, this game is one of the best of 2012 so far with a very fun and shocking look at war games with moral choices that affect the story throughout, I love this game!!!! Spec Ops: The Line Gets a 10/10!

Overview
=================
As others have said this is one of the most engaging stories for a shooter. In short things are a mess when you get to Dubai....you don't know who is running things and why everyone is trying to kill you. The game keeps you on the edge with the action and the story.

The campain is where this game shines. Unfortunately I'm knocking it down for control issues. The "X" button is used for running and cover. Unfortunately it was designed to keep you running until you perform an action to break the running which can cause you to get shot. Also the "O" button is used for melee and vault. Which will cause you to accidentally perform one action when you meant the other.

Also the multiplayer was pretty bad. It was very generic and affected by the same control issues. The community is already really small (forgot about it in a few months). Also, when I got done playing my first match I was disconnected from the server and lost all of my XP.

If you rent for campaign it is great....if your focus is multiplayer skip it. No "online pass" at least allows you to try the multiplayer without forking over money.

Pros
=================
1) engaging story
2) some neat sand and light effects

Cons
=================
1) control issues
2) poor multiplayer

From second number one this game GRABS your attention! I may be a little partial because I'm a HUGE Uncharted Fan & Nathan Drake's voice actor (Nolan North) is a main character in the game which I think is AWESOME! The story is awesome so far. I will be holding onto this one for awhile & probably trophy hunting it! A definite MUST rent, at the very least! 9/10.
