Spec Ops: The Line is a game that is coming in under the radar. As far as being noob friendly, this could be one of the games that new gamers will want to jump into. Any time a developer pushes a new series, noobs should look at it as an opportunity to become skillful and improve with everyone else that is learning the game with you. While some people will have certain skills like reaction times and gaming reflexes, you will be able to learn the nuances and idiosyncrasies of Spec-Ops if you jump in off the bat.
Keep in mind, this game is a THIRD-Person Shooter in the demo and looks like it is trying to draw more attention from Ghost Recon than COD or Battlefield. If you consider the fact that this is also being published by 2K Games, it has a chance of gaining a foothold with some of the dedicated 2K Gamers.
The only trouble is, will the game be able to take the attention that Call of Duty will have in November and still be widely played online?
It will be an interesting situation as we take a quick look at what Spec-Ops has to offer –
- Just re-Announced Co-Op Mode at E3
- A very Gears of War feel for cover and handling
- Your typical deathmatches, etc.
