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

  • Sdarts
    Sdarts and no purpose only than just checking an item on a list to a 100% achievement, and the story, of course. So that took a lot of the pleasure of playing it, which is progression - at least for me. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts DA:I and FC4 are the 2 best games of 2014 for me. In FC4, just doing some side activities when I felt like and exploring was a blast. It's just that now I have a tons of side activities to do, (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Well, you were god-like, but you still earned XP. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts gives 1,500-1,7500 XP. So liberating 1 outpost gives around 2-3 levels, and even if the enemies raise the alarm, just killing everyone with headshots gives the same amount of XP. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: i was epically strong and had armour and weapons that made about 70% of the game completely pointless. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But I do agree some games have that problem, the thing with FC4 is that headshots on heavy units gives around 250-600 XP and the game caps the maximum XP per level at 2,000 XP, plus not being detected (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Didn't have that problem with Skyrim and I completed it 100%. Played it vanilla - no mods. (2 Hours ago)
