Thunderbolt Games: "If people were as faithful to their significant others as SOCOM fans are to their games, there would be a lot more blissful relationships in the world today. Take SOCOM: Confrontation for instance. It was released back in October 2008 as an online-only next-gen addition to the wildly popular PlayStation 2 series. Unfortunately for fans and newcomers alike, it was an inexplicably incomplete offering, with many of the features that were promised upon release (trophies, SOCOM awards, quick match & party system) nowhere to be found.
On top of that there were a myriad of technical issues with the game ranging from horrible lag and community/stats errors to in various in-game glitches. Still, the hardcore community stayed true to their flawed partner and played away - All while patiently awaiting a gift from the SOCOM gods at Slant Six Games in the form of a miraculous software update that would put this in its rightful place as the best tactical shooter in the land. That patch has finally arrived nearly 3 months after release in the form of update 1.30 and now we are ready to dig into the finally "completed" game."
