In the first, you take direct control of Cullen Gray and indirectly control the actions of the 2 NATO teams accompanying you. For those of you expecting a full range of commands to give to your team you might be a little disappointed as the controls are relatively simplistic with the commands limited to placing your team in position for ambushes and sniping, ordering them to fire, cancelling orders and returning to you. For those of us like myself, who want to experience something different to the usual bullet spraying and less than realistic (but oh so enjoyable shooters), Socom 4 is perfect. It gives players more of an insight into the importance of team based tactical warfare (however limited it may be) and the consequences of what happens when you actually go blindly into a room spraying bullets everywhere, all delivered through a very simple control system. I’d have to say, being a console gamer that if it had required more complex controls to guide your teams around I would have lost interest in it very quickly."
