Spec ops. The line is a third person shooter with a 'by the book' stick cover system siliar to that of Gears of War and Mass Effect 2. The controls are solid and can be a bit confusing at times and the gameplay has a 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' attitude towards those games which is also solid.
However the story is wahat sets this game appart as it dwelves into the psyche of Capt. Walker under the stress caused by his mision and his personal battle against the horrors in the ruins of Dubai, this is refflected in many aspects of the game such as loading screens, spectaculars in-game, the main menu etc.
Spec ops is an excellent story driven game with a great story and character analysis with solid gameplay and haunting imagery that will keep you at the edge of your seat as it is a great example of the narrative and connection between the player and the character that only games can give. Be sure to pick this game up during sales.
