SOCOM 4 Hands-on Preview: A Bloody Good Time

Eric Blattberg of writes, "I came away from SOCOM 4 impressed, eager to see more of the game. The Sharpshooter works surprisingly well; I still don’t know if it’s a competitive option for multiplayer, but I look forward to playing the single-player campaign with motion control. Luckily, I won’t have to wait too much longer: SOCOM 4 deploys for PS3 on April 19, 2011 in North America and April 22, 2011 in the U.K."

The story is too old to be commented.

Sounds great and I can't wait.

I think Socom is great. It was my first console shooter ever (Just played GT b4 that, YA I KNOW) but I learned real quick that Socom gamers are pretty hardcore and it really is all about TEAM WORK. If you communicate with your team well then the game is alot more fun. Even if you are tempted to just run out DON'T sit back a sec and watch....then start pickin people off.

Watched some streams and I'm impressed.

I think SOCOM and Killzone 3 are great reasons to pick up Move. Looks like Sony finally has some good motion control games under its belt. Can't wait to see what else they have in store.

Although I agree whole heartedly I still think they need a good move exclusive to bring in the masses.

porgep2651d ago

Yeah, I'm actually hoping a game comes out that mixes hardcore/casual markets for Move -- something I could play with my girlfriend for hours on hours -- and not just play random sports games.

Sweet, can't wait to play this. Sounds like a really fun time.

After playing KZ3 with the Move exclusively and doing pretty well(if I do say so myself) with it, I can't wait to play SOCOM! This title has moved up to the top of my must-buy list.

Same here man. It's hard to go back to DS3 controller after getting used to the Move

AKA2282650d ago

Totally agree with you both. I feel like Killzone 3 with Move was a completely new experience and just added to the excellent sense of immersion in killzone. I don't think I will ever be able to go back to a Dual Shock for shooters period lol.

"Since SOCOM 4 recognizes which region you’re playing in, North American gamers helm a group of U.S. Navy Seals, but gamers from other regions control other armed forces, complete with different characters and voice actors. British gamers, for example, play as S.A.S. fighters"

That's so cool, I wonder how many special forces gropus they have in the SOCOM 4.

That sounds great but does that mean us Canadians get maybe a C7A2, C8A2, LSW and Maple syrup grenades.

I have lots online friends from cannada and one of them was in the Canadian army, I bet he'd know more.
