Last week I wrote that it might be worth waiting for review before plonking dollars down on Spec Ops: The Line, but the reviews have come and gone and the results are… inconclusive. Looks like this may genuinely be one of those rare games that elicits properly different reactions from different players. The kind of game you have to play to get an idea of.
Even just personal accounts I’ve heard from friends differ wildly. Some really enjoyed the game’s story and the, seemingly, meaningful choices, but others couldn’t overlook the core mechanics, which feel a little derivative. Once again I haven’t spent that much time with the game, but I’m keen to hear your thoughts?
It seems like the most interesting thing about the game is the unique, grey-area situations you’re placed in, which is intriguing to me. I’m not sure if I can be bothered playing through another third person shooter to engage with those choices, but it’s interesting none-the-less.
What do you think — worth playing?
