..was so UNDERWHELMING!

Its been sitting in my backlog for the better part of a year & just finally got around to playing it. Having been hyped as having a crazy awesome story..i expected better. Gameplay was solid, but im not here to talk about that.

The ending was seriously expected. All the hints you got from about halfway through the game you wouldve AT LEAST figured out that the Captain was f***** in the head and was making a lot of s*** up. The Konrad reveal was expected in the end, I was just expecting some other crazy details or revelations that ultimately fell flat.

Solid game overall, but completely overrated story. If you're expecting to get inceptioned, this is not the game you're looking for.


My only other regret is not making a 'Buy it, Rent it, F*** it" topic on it a long time ago...

They could have cut the number of enemies in half, and it would have been a much better game.

Every single battle, especially at the end was so mind numbing.

You didn't understand the meta story.

Waitwaitwait, Inception was deep? It was kinda neat but at the end of the day it felt like exercise in awesome special effects with an ending that served no purpose other than to keep people talking about it.

As for the main guy not being right in the head, the clues to that start pretty much immediately after the first area. There pretty much isn't an area that doesn't have something screwed up in it.

Bingo. The allusions and symbolism are mindblowing when one sits back and looks at them.

Says the story of Spec Ops was meh, but the gameplay was good? What?
