Green Man Gaming Spec Ops: The Line $37.50

Bought PC version, after playing the well-optimised Steam demo.

A little miffed have to wait for June 28th to play it here in Europe :P

I really hope they don't drop the ball on the heavily-marketed narrative and Heart of Darkness themes, so much potential.

@AssInAss: Hate to say this but I've been hearing that its 4 hours long, and that the campaign wasn't special. I was looking forward to this game but now I don't know.

@falserelic: That's disappointing to hear, hopefully the game will have some good multiplayer if the campaign is that short.

Bomb, financial loss

Terrible in every way

Complete disaster

That is my poem about Spec Ops: The Line

I've seen some multiplayer vids, and read a guys review of it. He said it was pretty bad, and after watching the online matches I see why he didn't like it.

On gamespot and a guy had a whole walkthrough of the game on youtube. He said it was pretty short.

Forum person, I usually ignore them until I played the game. But when alot of people start saying the game ain't worth 60 bucks. Then I start thinking if I should really buy the game.

You should maybe wait until you hear that from more trustworthy people. All the interviews (Game Informer podcast with the writer, Corey Davis' guest appearance on Weekend Confirmed) I've heard recently simply made it sound too good to dismiss on account of random internet people.

Well see I really do hope the game turns out worth while.

GameAnyone is posting a playthrough of the game, it isn't finished yet, but maybe check out some of it if you're in doubt.

EDIT: I'm not going to guesstimate the length of the game, but there are 20 achievements that looks like they are related to campaign progression, if we assume that they all are awarded at the end of each Chapter then the game would have 20 chapters, and the walkthrough on GameAnyone is at just over 2 hours for the first eight chapters.

I heard there's 15 chapters in the game.
