| A great shooter with amazing and haunting story
Greetings from Lithuania.

So i have recently invested 8-10 hours of my lifetime into "Spec Ops: The Line" (2012). It was worth every minute of it.

This is a 3rd person shooter with an amazing story (Seriously. In a Shooter!), gorgeous graphics (played for the first time in the end of 2015), very solid game-play and mechanics. The highlight of the game and the actual reason why i have played in the first place 3 years after it's release (haven' t got a chance at the moment of it's release) was a story that i read was great. It is great, based on a "The Heart of The Darkness", on which material the masterpiece "Appocalyose Now" was made - it takes you to the deeps of modern warfare and place you in a shoes of "Captain Willard" who has to go trough hell to kill "Kurtz". Although the ending left me a bit confused, i loved the whole experience nevertheless.

Overall, "Spec Ops: The Line" is a highly enjoyable game (still) in regards to 3 main factors: amazing story and mood, great game-play and superb visuals. Maybe it's not as polished as "Gears Of War", but it is a rare gem - shooter that actually makes you FEEL.
