Does SOCOM have the tactics to liberate itself from its fellow shooters? The PlayStation 3's exclusive third-person franchise is put to the test!
looks to be good game for the fans
the trolls are inevitable though
Much better review unlike some. the game is awesome not as noobie as call of duty and move is something new to play , a experiance
Thats more like it and based off of the mp i played i expected a score anywhere between 7.5 and an 8.0 for me which warrants purchase.
you should base your purchase on what YOU played not other reviews.
Im not stupid its based off both. I didnt play the sp so i couldnt base it solely off of what i played.
Judging from MP it is 8+ for me (8-9 or something). Not the popular run and gun game, but very polished and great to play - once you get to use to it. I also think the visuals stand out. Quite packed with details in at least that jungle level. If the SP/Co-Op can keep up with that, that'll do. It's a purchase for me after we are getting flooded with FPS shooters. Quite a different game for a change.
Yeah i enjoyed the difference between COD run and gun as opposed to Socoms approach to being tactical. One thing is for sure if you go in thinking your running and gunning you get mauled down quickly ive experienced that a few times lol and had to use strategy instead!!! The visuals were pleasing to me as well def. better than MAG, but with a similar feel. Ju add me my psn id is kenjovani as i have Socom pre ordered and will be playing it often.
HAHA!!! zipper tried to cater to the casual and failed. should have stuck to the formula zipper.
Lol. Then it would have gotten a 6.0. Don't get me wrong, it still would have been a good game, but the mainstream hates good tactical stuff.
the mainstream sucks.
This is about what I expected. No good tactical shooter will ever score more than a 8.5 from mainstream media, so this is actually pretty good, IMO. I enjoyed Op Flashpoint: DR way way more than CoD:BO and BF:BC2, so this sounds like its just the thing for me.
S1,2, and 3 all received great reviews..
No, they didn't really. They got about the same. Go look it up on metacritic. They were good games, but the crowd they cater to is limited. The mainstream will never rate games that cater to smaller crowds highly.
SOCOM 2 was one of the best online games of the last generation. How the mighty have fallen.
keywords: Was and Last Gen.
this isnt socom 2 HD whah whah whah... wanted to be first to cry about it on this article. /singleteardrop /endsarcasm
Oh how I hate hearing linear levels -_-
I am going to pick it up regardless of the score. It breaks up the monotony of the FPS. I was in the beta and I had fun with it. I especially like bomb squad.
Ive been on the beta from the start can't find a thing wrong with this game. Plays flawlessly online people die when shot the game is well balanced and most of all its fun. More than i can say for soem the top hitters this gen. GT = Fail again tbh.
good score but i still smell a 6.0 from IGN to come lol
Good Score, I do however believe that had this been an Xbox game, the comments wouldn't be supportive and would be mocking said score. Regardless, congratulations Zipper.
