Our videos of Spec Ops: The Line

Our videos of Spec Ops: The Line

Spec Ops: The Line has always been presented as a game with strong emphasis on story and that's what it is really. Don't get me wrong, gameplay is solid and the shooting mechanics work well, but it is also true that it does not bring anything new to the genre. That being said, Yager's new title is clearly worth a look if you want to experience war in its worst aspects, a world in which soldiers and violence are not glamorized as it is sometimes. Here are four gameplay videos showing extracts from the first two hours and a half of the single player campaign. Just make sure you stay away from the fourth one if you are the sensitive type, or if you are interested in playing the game yourself.

I think I'll opt out. Reviews have been positive but if this has taught me anything it's that I can be a shallow man. The game just didn't look good enough.

I agree, shallow and pedantic.

I was watching a few gameplay vids from the PS3 version and I was just awed by how bad it looks running on PS3. I mean 6 years later, UE3 still doesn't run well on PS3.

I can't believe Silicon Knights lost that court case against Epic.

yep, all buyers of a ps3 should be geting a Wii U for free, seeyin' that its way more powerfull and can handle it well.

oh wait, makes no sense. just like crying over a low-tier game from a mediocre dev looking shitty, is just guilt of the engine.

you wanted silicone knights to win that court case? they where/are/always will be incompetent developers. or do you think it's ok to sue people when your shit at something. they wanted to place blame on someone else, when the only blame was with themselves.

Same could be said for epic and there online portion of gears of war, as that game has had broken problems since day one, yeah OK Silicon knights aren't the best but since gears neither has epic been, there games are mediocre

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks this also isn't the books. The shows narrative diverged quite a while ago (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @scoobs0688: How likely is an ending where the Night's King just rolls over everything south of the wall? The last shot being a panning shot of all our favourite characters with blue eyes. (1 Hour ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 @KORNdog: and your idea is not among the possibilities, or everything GRR has been hinting at in his writing for decades now is for naught. (1 Hour ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 @KORNdog: idk if you know the lore behind the show (the promised prince, lord of the light, etc.) but there's a certain way this is going to go down (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i mean, it's not a "good" ending. but do you honestly expect a happy ending for game of thrones? now THAT sounds like something that goes against the storys entire purpose. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @scoobs0688: how does it go against the entire purpose of the story. cersei seems willing to do anything to win. maybe siding with the ice kind is an option for her? (2 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 @KORNdog: that would be the worst ending imaginable, and goes against the entire purpose of the story. Terrible take (2 Hours ago)
