  1. Beware of System Requirements
    by Elias Chapelle, USA - Apr 1st 2014

    Spec Ops is an interesting shooter with extraordinary graphics and an atypical storyline. Unfortunately, the game has some system requirements that were not listed when it was originally released, a problem I have seen elsewhere. Whether this is a sign of developers and sellers not talking to each other or the inability to keep up with hardware upgrades, I can not tell, but be aware that if you run this game on an Intel 4000 graphics chip, it will not run properly. This has been a very consistent problem with anything running and sold through Steam.

  2. A Literary and Flimic Adaptation, Huge Step Forward for Gaming
    by janglehorse, USA - Mar 13th 2014

    In my book, (no pun intended) when Conrad Aiken and Francis Ford Coppola are become sources of inspiration for a game, it can only be a good thing. Spec Ops: The Line provides competent FPS gameplay, but its emphasis on story is its true innovation and in my opinion, a huge step forward.

    Intended to confront the gamer with more than just bad guys with guns, Spec Ops succeeds in breathing new life into the tired "save the world from [insert nukes, terrorists, or kidnapper(s) here]" FPS plotline. Spec Ops is a long overdue attempt to reach outside of the closed world of "shoot the bad guys" and place humanity, moral ambiguity, and the nature of good and evil alongside heart-pounding adrenal combat situations.

    Here's hoping for a succesful sequel to this unique FPS that continues to push "The Line."

  3. Might have been the Mac game of 2013 if not for Bioshock Infinite
    by Mattw, United Kingdom - Feb 21st 2014

    I actually picked this up on sale but it would have been worth full price.

    Initially the game appears like it might be just another shooter with a little squad tactics thrown in but after an hour or two you realise nothing is quiet what it seems and the story drives you on and on. There are some nice environments and action sequences along the way and performance is very good with just a little stuttering as graphics are loading in.
