The opening and Mission 1 in SOCOM 4.
sad this... =/ It still just doesn't feel like a SOCOM game.
I feel sad for Zipper. They spent a lot of time working on MAG and Socom 4. Mag didn't really do well in terms of sales and the reviews for Socom 4 so far have been lackluster.
i hate the main guys accent, he sounds so upper class. (not being racist because im english to)
They should've just used the main guys voice from the North American version of the game instead of finding another voice actor for SOCOM Special Forces
They did that? That's pretty gay in my opinion, also more work for the dev team. Also, Nolan North again? Damn, give the guy a break.
Online was kind of lackluster, I'm looking forward to the single player campaign.
... The camera view needs to shake alot more & then the game will feel alot more immersive & "next-gen" e.g. When moving around, being shot at from behind cover or a nearby explosion going off. Kind of like how it is in the Gears of War series.
I don't get why people try sooo hard to hold onto the past. It's socom evolved. Deal. I'm getting it Tuesday and will enjoy it. Beta is fun...with cod feel. Cod isnt all bad...it does alot of things right. Killstreak rewards and xp system is now a staple of fps.
I'm getting it next week, too. For me, judging from the video this game looks just awesome. Whatever others say, I think the visuals look great (and yet, more action going on than in Crysis2). People like to run and gun. Same for who made the video. Did not issue a single swat command. Guess people like more of the same instead of something new. And yet, complain the game is outdated. LOL.
idk a socom game doesnt feel right without terrorist
Boring. Talking about developers losing the plot. Another ordinary shooter that will come and quickly go. Resistance 3....it'll be your turn next. The good news is, there won't be any disappointments with Battlefield 3 and Warhawk 2. Not unless their developers lose the plot as well. Not! edit Aside: I wish Warhawk had these Socom characters, animations, environments, weapons and vehicles. Then it would have been the undisputed king of shooters.
So you want the radical plot of how Modern Warfare's 2 one was? Explain what you said about "losing the plot?"
I was speaking figuratively. Socom 4 is yet another "ordinary shooter." The same old plot....when the plot for a developer is to make something exceptional/stands out. Tango down. Tango down. Boring.
I really don't understand the media's dislike with this title thus far. I'm still waiting on my review copy so I guess I'll find out soon. I think people are so used to COD-like shooters that they feel the need to compare games that are nothing alike. This feels like a natural progression of the Socom franchise albeit with a bit more action, but that's not a bad thing. The latest patch also addressed most of the issues I had with the beta.
I completely agree with you, it's like COd has warped everyones perceptions in regard to shooters. I've read a few reviews (I boycotted the destructoid one for obvious reasons), and most of teh reviews are unfairly critical. I don't even know what standard is being used to judge the game. Would people be happier if Zipper had simply released Socom2 HD? i'm getting my copy of Socom4 day 1.
Well you can bet we (PS3Vault) will give a fair opinion on it.
