|War. War never changes.|
So, I don't finish games. Even short ones.
But I was feelings sick and my natural...chosen pick me up in the past has always been play video games. So I fired up Spec Ops: The Line again, deciding to see what was what. Yeah I was pretty close to the end of the game.
At the end it tells you how much time you spent playing the game. 4 hrs 32. Yeah that's about four hours less than I actually played it, because I die alot. I almost switched to playing an easier difficulty (and the game asked me to many, many, many times) but I held strong and ended the way I started it.
I went back and played two missions because I had left some of the intel laying around. I played them on FUBAR mode and didn't die once. Crazy that I'm only bad when I'm trying to get through the game.
Anyhoo. Man, this game rocks my socks off. There are four endings to this game and I went through everyone of them, because they make it easy to do. All four point to the utter horror that is war and this game shows just how ugly it is. I talked a bit about that in my unfinished review. I won't ruin it for anyone who hasn't beat it, but this game is very psychological. As Captain Walker you get Post-Traumatic Stress and it doesn't go away, even by the happy ending.
|So beautiful...Let's blow it up!|
So bottom line, if this game is good enough for me to finish it, then it's good enough for you to go out and get it.
Actually that's not saying anything. I hated Mass Effects 2 & 3 but I still beat them.
Regardless, play and beat this game. Yager deserves your money.
