Finally got the chance to 100% one of my favorite games of all time and still every time I reach the ending it hits me like a fucking truck. The atrocities you commit and are forced to deal with are brutal and make you question everything you've done in other military based games, cod, battlefield, etc. every chapter slowly shows the decline of walker and his squad mates Lugo and Adams from upbeat military bros to ptsd having murderers who don't even know why they came anymore. The gameplay is generic third person shooter, but the combat has moments where walker starts to lose it and it further shows the decent walker has gone through. The starting chapters of the game walker is professional about his kills with executions you use to finish off enemies being quick and to the point, but by the end of the game after all he's been through they become brutal acts of murder that are simply overkill. Spec ops the line is a game that will make you feel like a solider gone through hell. It breaks the illusion of every military game where the protagonist is completely fine after killing hundreds of people. It shows the dark heart of war and the ugliness it comes with. Spec ops the line isn't a game that should be played it needs to be played. The story itself brings this to a perfect 10/10 for me you grow attached to Lugo, Adams, and walker. So by the end of the game you're heartbroken to see what becomes of these traumatized men. Spec ops the line is a masterpiece in video game storytelling and immersion that needs to be studied to reach this level of griping storytelling again.
