This is a tough game with a controller configuration that gives the buttons multiple uses and tests your concentration and tactical thinking to the max.
Mega Fun
Spec Ops macht einfach Spaß. Alle, die auf das Drauflosbolzen stehen, werden jedoch sehr schnell enttäuscht sein, denn Spac Ops muss überlegt angegangen werden. Wie in der Realität bestehen auch eure Soldaten aus Fleisch und Blut. So sackt eure Lebensleiste bei gegnerischen Attacken mehr als schnell ins Negative und der Verlust nur eines Mannes kann schon die Niederlage bedeuten. Aber auch realistische Voraussetzungen. wie das zwingend notwendige Nachladen einer Feuerwaffe, oder die Tatsache, dass man sich auch schnell selbst versehentlich mit in die Luft sprengt, sorgen für einen ungeheuer dichten Spannungsbogen. Negativ fällt der recht hoch angesetzte Schwierigkeitsgrad auf. Eher unrealistisch erscheinen auch Situationen, in welchen ein Scharfschütze gerade einen Meter vor einem Gegner steht und diesen einfach nicht trifft.

For ten dollars there are few choices that can produce the same level of entertainment. Even as an impulse purchase most should be happy with their small investment. An average shooter on one hand and a cheap game available to the masses on the other. Drop the value-meals and get yourself a cheap game.
Daily Radar
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.
Absolute Playstation
Truly, this is not a bad game for the new low price niche that is being touted and left me pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately, some of the shortcuts that were made affected playability and detract from the overall effectiveness of the game, but for a few bucks what can you really expect? The game gets easier to play and more fun as you stick with it, but the question remains of how long will you stick with it?
Game Informer Magazine
Along with a difficult single-player game, the two-player Co-operative mode is a riot and a half. For 10 clams, this game is a bargain.

Aucune innovation, la prise en main est délicate. Quant aux graphismes, ils sont affreux (le mélange 3D/2D, c'est pas top). Un titre qui ne fait que passer et qu'on oubliera vite.
Super Play
Massor av bra idéer, men alltsammans verkar ihoprafsat utan någon tankeverksamhet. Kanske kommer detta att rättas till senare, och då kanske man också kan smyga sig till en seger i spelet.
