Spec Ops: The Line screenshot of an in-game war memorial

You've no doubt heard endless amounts of praise and criticism for Spec Ops: The Line at this point, so if you're curious to see what it's all about, you might be interested to hear that it's currently completely free on Humble Bundle. The offer will only last for another 38 hours, however, so do make sure to grab your copy as soon as possible, just to be on the safe side.

As for whether Spec Ops: The Line is actually worth playing, I'm genuinely not sure what to tell you. On one hand it has a story that packs a massive punch, even if you already know what the big twist is, but on the other hand it's a completely generic shooter that could barely keep me entertained throughout the short campaign. So the big question is: does an excellent story make the otherwise mediocre gameplay worthwhile? Well, that's something only you will be able to decide.

If you're wondering about what all of this looks like in-game, allow me to send you off with a brief trailer. It's not very detailed and it won't exactly tell you what Spec Ops: The Line is really all about, but it'll at least give you an idea of what to expect from the gameplay. Enjoy!
