Spec ops.... finding new host

If you like over the shoulder style shooters, then you’re going to like this game. Yes it’s obviously a military shooter so the story’s going to be the usual, Oh no bad guy with too many resources is going to destroy the world type plot but, surprisingly enough, this story has a little different twist too it. You’re a Delta Operative sent into Dubai after massive storms have hit with the mission to find survivors. Sounds pretty simple, but, this is where the games refreshing take on the old scenario makes this game worth playing. Soon enough you find yourself in a world you were not expecting. Rogue soldiers gunning for your head, CIA agents causing the usual CIA kind of messes they cause (we know what you guys do.. seriously stop it you’re like monkeys), and of course other action packed stuff I just can’t tell you about until you’ve played it for yourself.

Personally I think the game was brought together nicely, the camera isn’t in your way killing you with mechanics, which is great news to me. I always get a little leery when it comes to 3rd person shooters as they have a tendency to mess up the camera angles, at least for me anyway. Over all I have to say the game mechanics feel great. Weapons fire the way they should, turning, running, jumping into or out of cover, all feels fluid and natural leaving you playing the game for hours worrying about your face getting shot off vs. trying to keep your camera angle where it should be instead of zoomed into the back of your own skull for some reason.

The game environments are great as well. The backgrounds are beautifully created; the destructible environments aren’t over the top. You’re not going to find yourself destroying every man woman child and bunny rabbit in the area with a single grenade, that might take a few more. The graphics and physics in this game are great you never really feel like something happened that was just a little too ridiculous it all fits together l

I have to say its about time we had a great story to a good game.This story has you from the start to finish & i can not wait for part 2 ,Graphics are very good the sound is spot on no glitching the controllers work very good with the game,they say there coming out with co,opp mode that is a point against them ,This should have already been done it would have made the game better then it is.Now for the online play that needs work very slow moving around don't really feel the online multiplayer. The people online don't talk at all. They could use a mode like HC.CTF.But as for the game i had to give it a 9.Do to the story I hope part 2 they have the co,Op an the online fixed an ready to play.

Spec ops: Mind Trip

Spec ops: the line, seperates itself from all the fps shooters that we all see today. In most fps shooters, the only thing that the players remember is the multiplayer experience and a little if none of the campaign. However, Spec Ops does the opposite. This game is the only game that actually made me question if what me and my character are doing, is right? You play Captain Walker and you accompany him on his descent into madness and blood-thristy revenge. The multiplayer has potential but lacks in some areas. But players will not remember this game for its multiplayer but rather for its campaign. A trait that many fps shooters cannot even get close to. Also the trophies for this game are really easy, so nobody should have a really tough time going for that platinum trophy. This game will change the way you think when you kill an enemy or if the person you just killed was the enemy or an ally or even imaginary? It would get a "10" if only the multiplayer was alittle better, other than that it is superb.
