SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs Review (Lens of Truth)

Lens of Truth writes - "In our next inFocus Review, we put Zipper Interactive’s SOCOM 4 for the PS3 under our lens. With today being Independence Day here in America, we couldn’t think of a better game to release our latest review on than one featuring our U.S. Navy SEALs, wouldn’t you agree? Now hop on in to see if the latest SOCOM passes this test, or if it should have stayed in basic training a while longer."

I hate Socom now. I tried and tried to like it for what it is but can't enjoy it. I feel like getting kills are more a luck thing than skill. Aiming is ridiculously off. The game is a mess.

Thats because Zipper lost their freakin minds and decided to go the "casual" route with this game. SOCOM 1 and 2 were freaking masterpieces for online gaming. They had a great formula, some of the best maps I've ever played, and one of the most dedicated fan bases to date. Yet they threw it all away for this casual junk. I really hope they make another one and listen to the community instead of putting out another crap game. Zipper is too good of a developer to create such garbage.

Gone are the Socom 1 & 2 days. Pretty sad.

Aiming is off? You mean because you have to actually aim instead of spraying? Had the most fun with that game out of a number of shooters I played lately. Most underrated.

So glad I bought this game. Never a fan of Socom earlier but some friends got me interested in this release.

IMO S4 is severely underrated. 67 meta? not even close. The SP portion is fun, not revolutionary but fun. Everybody knows, however, online is where Socom shines, and it totally delivers. Sweet online, with silky smooth framerate even on big maps with 32 players. Frantic and fun gunplay that requires skill, good reflexes and tactics. Game is at least a solid 8 for me.

I never played Socom before Socom 4.
I did play MAG religiously though. What I don't understand is how Zipper could make shooting feel so it was random whether your shots were going to be accurate?!! If you burst fire it helps....(as it should), but not enough. Movement is off, when you jump & land you have no realistic animation to represent weight.
