As a first review I decided to tackle a personal favorite of mine from 2012, Spec Ops: The Line. In case you haven’t played it yet or read anything about this game, there will be mild spoilers in this review, in particular a scene roughly halfway through the game. Consider this a warning.
Spec Ops: The Line is really nothing at first glance. Any passerby would glance at this online and assume it to be a pseudo rip-off of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness and subsequently Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, complete with a generic third person shooter element and cover system.
