      "Having only heard a little about this game before playing I didn't know what to expect going in. I purchased it on sale on for about 5 dollars. The game while fairly standard in the gameplay military shooter department is all fun and good. You have a 2 man squad and can issue attack orders, have 2 weapon slots and achievements are unlocked for number of kills. Where the game really stands out is its surrealistic style of the city of Dubai, and its incredibly dark and powerful story it tells. I really did have to stop playing a few times because it really did get under my skin and disturbed me quite a bit, more so than a lot of other games. The sound effects and music are fantastic in the game. The graphics are stunning at times and are very good at portraying the beauty and horror this game goes for. If looking for something with a bit of substance and a fairly fun shooting game to play definitely give this a try."

      "This is the most realistic combat video game I've ever played. The experience is immersive and you get to see what it's like to be an actual soldier. It's not just non-stop action, it's also deeply psychological. Great for any mature gamers out there looking for good fun and a great story."

      "The storyline from Spec Ops: The Line is ahh-mazing. This realistic shooter for PC contains war tragedy that's so believable that you'll feel like a part of the action."

      "This War of Mine is not your standard war game. Rather than play a soldier, you're a civilian trying to survive with other civilians in a war-besieged city. The game is surprisingly emotional and real."

      "I don't think of Metro 2033 as a war game so much as an aftermath-of-war game, set in the post-apocalyptic landscape of Moscow in the year 2033. Call it whatever you will, this FPS is an engrossing and challenging game with some of the best visuals I've encountered in a game of this kind. I like that I can play it on my Mac too."

      "I needed a game that focused on the tragedies of war, the realness of war. I didn't want one that was the usual stylized hollywood take on it. I found Metro 2033 to be not that bad, and although set in the future, it actually does relate close to the survival and action aspects of true war."

I enjoy the mix of comic book animation, puzzles, and action that provide insight into the actual tragedies of war."

      "I was definitely unimpressed with this product. While it's a war/adventure themed game, it seems like it's targeted at juveniles instead of adults. It might be fun for older kids or young teens, but for anyone else whose looking for a suitable war-themed game, look elsewhere. This is more of a novelty product."
