Classic SOCOM Maps That Need To Return

Over the course of SOCOM’s history, there have been a lot of great things that made SOCOM stand out from the competition, but the thing I loved most about SOCOM had to be the multiplayer maps. SOCOM games developed by Zipper have always had a wide variety of settings and game modes to play, which made them feel fresh long after release. Most importantly, Zipper was never afraid to use asymmetrical map design, making teamwork essential to success. This well thought out approach to design has convinced me that Zipper has the best map design in the gaming industry, as quality asymmetrical maps outside of SOCOM are few and far between. (PS2, PS3, Socom 2:US Navy Seals, SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy SEALs, Socom 4, SOCOM 4: US Navy SEALs, SOCOM: Confrontation, Socom: US Navy Seals, Sony, Zipper Interactive)

I don't agree wit the theory that maps need to return but these are good choices

always nice to revisit the classics

I agree with you partially coramoor, they should return but as a Free DLC and not 15$ DLC (MW2 )

Classic maps would make for good DLC, IMO. I'd rather get fresh maps in the game, and if I want to revisit classic maps (they can't be *exactly* the same, because the game isn't), it should be optional.

I think they should always at least have some of the best of the best of the previous games, but yes, they should focus on making awesome new ones.

This is what Slant 6 should have done instead of trying to come up with their own maps.

Yeah that sense of nostalgia is always nice.

Socom 4 should deliever.
Zipper usually doesn't drop the ball with anything. Slant 6 however didn't even have a ball to begin with. Hell! They weren't even in the basketball court!

only map I agree with is the ruins.. In S2 I liked Crossroads, fishhook, frostfire, nightstalker, sandstorm, blizzard, requime?, the ruins, hmm i actaully liked all except maybe like 5 maps.. they all need to be in S4 man, or just give us S2 classics.. the only game i played online as long as socom2 was rainbow six vegas1, all these other shooters are garbage with these perks and unbalanced BS.

I like the maps in Socom 3 honestly. Citadel if I'm not mistaken was amazing. Bring it back please.
Spenok  +   1467d ago
That would be sweet.

they should bring the map from the second mission of the the 1st level(Socom 2), that one was legit, just love that map.

I think you're talking about Harvester. I'd love to see Sujo come back.

Enowapi was a beast. Pitch black jungle with limited night vision created very tense moments. You never knew when a firefight would break out....

Well all Confrontation was, was a bunch of Socom I, and Socom II maps. Then a year later a expansion comes out (Cold Front), and more Socom II maps!
