A harsh, brutal game of stealth and tactics, Spec Ops will surprise gamers with its high production values and solid gameplay. Army Rangers take on a series of missions ever increasing in difficulty and danger with realistic weapons and equipment. The game engine is clean and well designed, the action is tense and violent, and the ability to have a second ranger backing up the player allows for some nice basic strategies. Having a friend play the second ranger makes the game even more fun, as two people attempt to coordinate their actions. Spec Ops has a sharp learning curve, though, and even at its lowest difficulty, will be too much for some players.
