Game Focus writes: "SOCOM has always been kind of a weird shooter. It has always had too much action to be a stealth game, and had too many fast paced objectives to allow players to sneak around. The sneaking and creeping worked well in the single player mode, but failed miserably online.
That single player campaign has been completely excised from the upcoming edition of the series; SOCOM: Confrontation pitches 32 players against each other in an online-multiplayer-only version of the franchise not developed by the traditional and original team at Zipper, but the PSP-vets at Slant Six Games. Being made available for download via PSN as well as purchasable at retail this fall season, Sony is hoping to rekindle the online love that kick started the PlayStation 2's online success."
