Although SOCOM: Special Forces won’t set the third person shooter world alight, it is quite a good title to play through. The storyline does throw you in without much back story and can make you wonder what is going on, but as you progress you do begin to connect with the characters. Though not without flaws, the gameplay is pretty good and made even more interesting and enjoyable by the inclusion of PlayStation Move controls.
The graphics are generally good, and although some characters look like they are wearing a Bo’ Selecta! mask, the majority of the graphics are very well executed. It is a shame that we couldn’t play through the multiplayer aspect, as this may have increased the score, but as a single player campaign, it is quite enjoyable and a makes decent attempt at taking on other third-person shooters. If you are a fan of the series, then you shouldn’t be disappointed.
