Spec Ops: The Line is not your ordinary third-person shooter.  Praised for its narrative and themes, it features a surprisingly deep story with many twists and turns that will leave you with many questions.

Gentlemen, welcome to Dubai.

I added the checkpoints for the entire month.  The game is pretty short and can usually be completed in about 5-6 hours, so I would just recommend playing at your own pace.  Just be mindful of the spoilers because knowing too much too soon could really spoil the game for some people.

We need some more participants for this playthrough. This game is pretty awesome and can be had for super cheap. If you had PS+ a little over a year ago, it may already be in your download queue.

The themes and tone of this game could potentially make for some excellent discussion and analysis. Don't leave all the fun to us. Please join in!

Yeah, the game is great.  I've already finished it and am halfway through a second playthrough so I can hopefully make better sense of the story.  Believe it or not, Spec Ops: The Line reminds me more of Silent Hill 2 than any other game because of some of the thematic similarities.

Also, word of warning Shawn, but my notes on the game so far are almost 2 pages long....

how do you progress? i played to chapter 4 in the second of the four difficulty-grades. The music and graphic is very good. but me playing the game is it not Smiley unfamillyar with shooters i often panic and struggle with the controls. Resulting in one epic jump over a box, and catching a bullet storm by pressing the wrong button, when i rather wanted to take cover behind it. i also struggle with running from grenades. but I also like them very much to use them myself Smiley I am lokking forward for the next chapters.

Yeah, the game can be difficult at times.  Honestly, by third-person shooter standards, the gameplay of this game isn't the best.  Lower the difficulty to the easiest setting if you have to, because the story is really what this game is about.  The story still probably feels like generic military stuff in Chapter 4, but give it a few more chapters and it will start to take some interesting twists and turns.

Hehe, that video you posted reminds me a lot of a friend of mine when we play shooters together.  He's terrible at throwing grenades  Tongue

still playing...now chapter 10. How did you like the aqua-sports-center, the level where you had to secure the water-trucks?

BTW: what do you use for the podcasts? just skype and some sort of recording-programm?

The coliseum where you steal the water trucks can be a bit frustrating.  It's very easy for enemies to get behind you and flank you.  Overall I enjoyed that section.  It is a very intense firefight.  I also liked the part after where you're given a grenade launcher.  Smiley

It's definitely a nice hidden gem.  Whenever you get around to playing it, I would advise you to go into it knowing as little as possible.  This game goes in some very unexpected directions, and knowing too much will ruin the surprises.

Unfortunately this means I would advise you not to listen to our upcoming Spec Ops podcast segment until after you've finished the game because we spoil all of the fun surprises.   Tongue
