CFD!'s Sage Knox gives his impressions on the multiplayer of Zipper Interactive's upcoming entry into the SOCOM franchise:
"There’s a stigma attached to the SOCOM franchise. While dedicated players praised it for its competitive play, the high barrier to entry required to join their ranks has kept the series from lifting itself out of the hardcore niche.
"Zipper has intentionally set out to please not only their current audience, but ensure that newcomers are welcomed into the SOCOM fold without becoming unidentifiably riddled with bullet holes. If the beta version of SOCOM 4‘s multiplayer resembles the final product in any way, they’ll have succeeded."
