Spec Ops: The Line Review
Posted: 10 months ago, last updated 3 weeks ago.

The game incorporates several subtle effects to visualize the lead character's increasing mental and physical distress; alongside the degradation of their combat uniforms, Walker suffers visual and auditory hallucinations later in the game, and his executions of enemies become more violent.
Although it's common to play as a powerful soldier, as the narrative unfolds the impact of your choices and the pressure of war and violence on the soldier’s psyche is brought home in surprising and sometimes shocking ways.
