Ops Spec

    Damn, I'm looking forward to this one. It'll be tough to wedge it in somewhere between Mass Effect and BioShock, but I'm gonna try. Nice writing by the way Coop.

    I have always been interested in this game since I first heard about it. Firstly for the slick cover system but latter on for the awesome moral decisions. I definitely think I might get this game when it releases.

    It almost sounds too good to be true.
  • thelazymackenzie - February 6, 2012 6:06 p.m.

    I had no interest in this game until now, time read everything about it! Also, great writing in this article.

    Good read, Highlander. Always wanted a true dark and gritty shooter. War shouldn't feel so fun. And that in itself will create drama. Sounds great. A++ Would read again

    "We entered Dubai, completely ruined by sandstorms, in an attempts to find the cleverly-named U.S. Army Colonel John Konrad, a hero of our Nolan North-voiced protagonist, Captain Martin Walker. But there’s a war going on in Dubai, unbeknownst to everyone on the outside. Konrad’s men are doing battle with natives. And maybe the CIA, too; it was never made completely clear." haha. Konrad? unbeknownst war? battle with natives? Holy sh*t a heart of darkness in video game form. I'm completely sold.

    Based on what I've read here, which is the first thing I've read about this game, it sounds like it'll certainly deliver on it's promise. But, like others, I'll still wait until reviews are posted to see if it holds that kind of tension all the way through. I'm still more interested in this game now than I was before.
  • winner2 - February 6, 2012 4:14 p.m.

    Definitely interested now, if this game is as good as it's sounding to be, I'll take it over Modern Warfare any day.
  • Dman3981 - February 6, 2012 2:16 p.m.

    Sounds good, I was almost scared that this game got canned because I haven't heard anything from it for a while. For those who haven't seen the reveal trailer or the E3 trailer here you go:

    One can only hope that this lives up to its reputation and not fail due to things like sloppy game design or such.
  • Sinosaur - February 6, 2012 12:57 p.m.

    I'm hoping this game continues to look up, because I remember tons of previews for games that will completely change everything that end up releasing with ratings between 5 and 7 and not actually living up to the hype. This is a difficult topic and video games are a medium that's not always very good at dealing with morality and complex situations, especially not serious, morally ambiguous situations. However, I'm hopeful that this game may prove to be an exception.

    This is great, Hollander... hummm... Would you mind telling someone to fix this game's info, It says that it will be launched in late 2010. Also, this game was apparently released on 2009 according to this search results. Cheers!
  • TheHalfanese - February 6, 2012 11:26 a.m.

    Just when I thought war games would never change, I discover this. This game sounds like something I could get behind. Thank you for the good read.
  • alanmeades - February 6, 2012 10:27 a.m.

    Didn't we have the similar moral wrangle in homefront? I'm not knocking it though, I'm all for greater reflection while playing... If only there was the option to not use the phosphorous and still get past them?
  • Grif - February 6, 2012 9:32 a.m.

    Bravo Hollander, you conveyed what (hopefully) will be a very dark and interesting game extremely well.
  • ObliqueZombie - February 6, 2012 9:31 a.m.

    Well written, Mr. Cooper. I very much enjoyed the way you decided to tell this review. The dark of the review REALLY reflected the supposed dark tone Spec Ops is claiming to have. I've been having my eye on it for a few months now, and this is really shaping my decision to purchase this game.
  • BladedFalcon - February 6, 2012 8:44 a.m.

    I've been keeping an eye on this game ever since it's been announced 3 years ago. Mainly because it always promised to tell a dark, different kind of war story, and because the game-play looked fun and solid enough. It's good to hear that so far it's delivering. I will also most likely wait for the reviews though, like someone pointed out, Homefront Also had a brilliant premise, and it's thanks to the reviews that I avoided it. Let's hope though, that with this game the reviews will confirm my hopes rather than drive me away.
  • StrayGator - February 6, 2012 8:37 a.m.

    Le Witcher: Modern Warfare.
  • ultimatepunchrod - February 6, 2012 8:11 a.m.

    I'm going to wait for reviews, but every preview I've read has me really interested in this.
  • taokaka - February 6, 2012 6:34 a.m.

    I wasn't even remotely interested in this game before reading but now I want to know more.
