Spec Ops: The Line Preview


It's not easy to raise an eyebrow in the middle of the madness of E3 if it is just another Third Person Shooter plunged into a military conflict "modern". However, Spec Ops: The Line was able to turn some heads with an original field of battle, a bold approach to the genre and a pretty nice engine.

It is a brand new license made in 2K Games. Remember this name, Spec Ops: The Line, as it may surprise you many times. This game is an action game putting you in the shoes of a chief of military troop mission in the heart of Dubai. Only here, this is not the same Dubai that we have now. Here, the entire city is buried and only the buildings keep their heads high. You will need to clear a path through the rubble while attention not to get spotted by your enemies.

The Game:

The German company THQ Yager and lead us to a near future where something is happening in the ever-famous Dubai. After a sand storm, the city is in chaos, and factions are vying for control in a war in the streets of what was once a paradise.

The very sand that blankets the city plays a marquee role in altering combat situations and serves as a powerful but unpredictable force that will both help and hinder players throughout the course of the game.

While most people have fled the now-barren wasteland before the sandstorms swept through, U.S. Army Colonel John Konrad and his loyal squad remained behind to protect those incapable of escape. Unable to reach anyone in Dubai after the storm hit, the U.S. Army feared Konrad and his team dead until they picked up a weak distress signal and launched a rescue operation.

This is the calling card of an action game in the third person so far had not shown much, and after a half-hour demo we made impressions left us pretty good, though perhaps smaller than usual in games 2K Games. A broad strokes and short, Spec-Ops takes the formula of Gears of War and leads the world today, including how new interaction with the sand, the city has just been caught in a storm and literally full of sand, and certain tactical components, because we can give orders to our team.
