I haven't played it, but going by all the gameplay videos I have seen, it looks like just another average shooter.

You can unlock the full 1000 in a short amount of time, which does not help if you want to play the game over and over again, as you have nothing to play for other than personal enjoyment.

Yea everyone keeps saying that but no one has played the game lol I will admit through, thats EXACTLY what I thought after I played the demo. I actually only played 5 min of it and was like meh. But after playing the actual game, its night and day difference between the demo. I assure you, you will have a good time playing the game and getting into the story

This is one of the best shooters I've played in a long time. I'm on chapter 8 or 9, playing on suicide mission difficulty. Get it. The enemies aren't bullet sponges, the shooting mechanics are well done, and the story is pretty good for a video game.

Going with Kunduz here. That's no doubt the reason that devs put out demos - to try and attract people into downloading it, trying their game to see if it's worth purchasing.

As for the people saying "it's like another shooter" I'm sorry but what shooter out there currently allows you to enter a post-apocolyptic like Dubai that has been overun with sand and offers morale choices throughout the game?!

The trailer does not do this game justice however I am basing this purely on the demo of the game that I've played through as I live in the UK and we British have to wait until tomorrow (Friday) for it to come out.

If the demo doesn't reflect the game well then I will gladly come back on here with my hands held high and say "Yes, I was wrong, it is another generic shooter" however I'm hopeful that Spec Ops will not be another generic shooter.

Iím not normally a fan of military based shooter games, I guess knowing people that have suffered the realities of war has kinda turned me off the idea. I donít condemn anyone for enjoying them, just not usually my thing. Iím interested in this game though. The post-apocalyptic/disaster Dubai setting, like someone else has pointed out, is unique and the fact that the game has a heavy focus on morality makes it stand out a little.

Playing the demo the game seemed fine to play. I think the biggest fault with this game will likely be that itís a military based shooter thatís not CoD or Battlefield.

I'll never understand why people ask "should I get this game". Look at some reviews...ask your friends, not strangers...look at videos on YouTube...play the demo...rent it and decide for yourself.

Lets not forget the fact that alot of youngsters think if its not or close to MW or BF its not worth getting it. I always find it funny how those kids compare every bloody shooter game with those two games even if its not close to it at all.
But to be honest i had alot of ppl that said they didn,t liked the demo that much and rather skipp the game, then again i def enjoyed it so much i played the demo a few times again and again inbetween waiting for it or when i got sick of the slow pace it takes to get the last levels up in rank for Ghost Recon.

I think alot of gamers depend alot of what others say or when friends say they don,t like it, so i don,t like it attitude, but i never do that i just play a game when i think the story is intresting or the actual gameplay screens or vids do look nice, even if a game gets not realy great scores in reviews i had plenry of games i still played and enjoyed.
As for Spec-Ops The Line you can,t compare it with games like BF or MW firstly its a 3th person shooter while the others a FPS, and in this game you realy face some points where you have some moral choices to be made that not show off right away if it was good or bad and what the devs said about it there is a tin line between wrong or right or good and bad. I think its a big part what sets this game out from other games where its basicly just gun and run.
Final verdict! Just give it a go yourself Don,t go on what others say that much, what they might like u don,t and the other way around

People are telling you to make your decision based on the demo and I don't think you should listen to them. Maybe play it to see if you like the feel for the gameplay and if you do even somewhat, you should get it. If you don't have lots of money wait for a price drop or rent it, but this game is really good so far.

The shooting feels better than most third person shooters in my opinion. The only issue is some of the movement and the controls, although the control issues might just be me because I've been playing Max Payne 3 so much. I haven't even gotten into the story much, but so far the voice acting is top notch and I'm very interested in seeing what happens next. Also hearing that the story is good from reviews and a friend of mine gives me high hopes.

The multiplayer is enjoyable, but I won't play it much. I have better multiplayer games. Can't wait for the free co-op DLC in August though. That's why I'm glad I didn't just rent it.

You should definitely consider picking this up when you have some extra cash.

I was able to use coupons and pick up the game for 10 dollars. So far, it is worth the purchase.

I consider this a new Franchise, so give it a try, i bought the Game yesterday, have to support my german Fellows I think its a cool Game, fresh Setting, a good Story which is not like all those other Games, Kill the Russian Bad Guy Stuff.
Graphics are good, even though i wish for a little bit more Detail in some Areas.

Is it so great that everyone should get it ? Hell no, but its a fun Game with a fresh Setting and nice Gamerscore.

I have to say, I played the demo when it first came out years ago and was disappointed in how bad it was. So now I bought the game for $14 and I am loving it! The story so far seems well written and the voice acting is good too. Any 3rd person shooter fans should buy this. Feels like a mix of battlefield and GOW.

The games not half bad i must admit. The story is actually interesting, the setting is cool and provides some great fun using sand against your enemies. Plus your fighting fellow americans which while seems a bit odd is a great change up from killing Russians.
