Also over the numerous sales of Thanksgiving, I picked up Spec Ops: The Line for the PC. I have been interested in playing the story of the game and was waiting for the right price to get it. A short 5 hours later and I complete Captain Walker's journey in to the heart of darkness.
The shooting is functional, but unremarkable. That sentiment goes for most of the game, though a Dubai covered in sand makes for some pretty visuals. The main draw is the story which cobbles together nearly all of the "War is hell" stories you can think of. Playing through such a story is interesting as you slowly watch your special forces soldiers go from professional killers to savage murderers. The ending act of game becomes surprisingly trippy.
Of all the games with guns that I've played, this one had the most interesting story. I'm still not sure how to feel about it; the ending first struck me as the game trying too hard. Days after, I can't imagine the ending being anything else. I'm eager to play through the story again to solidify my feelings.
