Spec Ops: The Line on PC

Spec Ops: The Line is a third-person shooter video game developed by Yager Development and published by 2K Games. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on June 26, 2012 in North America and on June 29, 2012 in Europe.

Although in the Spec Ops series, The Line does not take any story elements from previous titles. The game follows Captain Martin Walker as he is sent into a post-catastrophe Dubai with an elite Delta Force team on a reconnaissance mission, but the situation escalates into a hunt for a decorated officer named Colonel Konrad. While lead writer Walt Williams has stated that there are many influences, the premise is inspired by Joseph Conrad's novella Heart of Darkness.

The game was generally well received by critics. Multiple commentators have observed similarities to Apocalypse Now, a Vietnam War era adaptation of Heart of Darkness, in the game's feel and expression of inglorious war.

I remember a time when games were made to be fun. even the ones that were darker in tone. nowadays games actively seek to punish the player. case in point: this one. Okay, i get it! it's dark, It's awful. but Fuck, don't we get ANY choice? save the civilians, the guy dies, save the guy, he dies AND the civilians are killed. later on the phosporus: I HAPPILY would PUMMEL the ENTIRE ARMY! taking my sweet time. DAYS if needed... but that wasn't an option... the guy asked me: Why? My answer: Because I wasn't given a choice on the matter. And for that. I quit. Great Game, 5/5
