What is it about Spec Ops anyway? I abstained because I played the demo on Xbox and it did absolutely nothing to convince me that it wasn’t third person military shooter #571. Even after reading up on the references to Heart of Darkness I’m still not convinced it’s anything more than a token adaptation of those themes through the shooter gameplay tropes we’ve all gotten bored of. If the game was indeed a more unique tactical shooter I’d be interested.
