I am a soldier of fortune, apparently, and if our latest hands-on with Spec Ops: The Line is anything to go by, I’m also a cold callous killer who disregards life like I do an X-Factor contestant’s chances of ever being a success. 2K and Yager’s third-person shooter not only throws you into a conflict in Dubai’s now-decimated, once-tropical paradise, but it makes you think. It puts your sense of morality on the line and asks you to make some rather startling choices, and while these choices do call into question the ability to refer to yourself as a human-being, I found that it was best to pull the trigger first and then work out the implications later. That’s the point though, after the trigger has been pulled, they’re decisions you’ll play over, and over, and over again in your head. A powerful by-product of a video game if you ask us.
