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'm already not playing Battlefield because I'm not crazy with what DICE is doing with it. They've got a lot of work to do. (7 Hours ago)
EA is far from out of the woods, but I don't think this is the steep downhill incline you imagine for the industry. I'm not buying the doom and gloom. (7 Hours ago)
If they can develop revenue streams that don't negatively impact the user experience.. most will try. (7 Hours ago)
And while publishers may want to pursue service models, there are relatively good ways of handling that. Add to this the fact that most developers don't really want to ruin their games. (7 Hours ago)
EA is already dropping the ball all over the place. But people are reacting to it, more than ever. (7 Hours ago)
