Tactical strike was a good game with some flaws, I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel on Vita. I think I would rather see something more along the lines of fireteam bravo. It would need to go back to ftb2's gameplay though, none of that regenerating health and linear gameplay like ftb3.

Agreed, Tactical Strike would probably work great on the Vita. Hey if Slant Six makes TAC STRIKE, they'll probably make FTB's as well. Here's hoping.

Meh, average series, needs to just die. When was the last AA quality game that was spawned from this series?

Sad but true. The SOCOM series has fallen very far.

I think that unfortunately the series will die if Zipper comes out with another crappy game like Socom 4. The real success for this series came from the PS2, where I would argue that Socom 1,2,3 and CA were far better than pretty much every other online shooter that has come out this generation.

On the matter of Socom: Tactical Strike 2....this article must be a joke, because Tactical strike wasn't any kind of a Socom game at all, and most of all it sucked. Slant Six needs to stay away from the Socom series, and Zipper needs to pull their heads out of their asses.

hows about we forget about vita and just make a good socom for ps3 like the ps2 games i would love a socom remake on ps3! socom in the ps2 days was the best online game ever no matter how many glitches it had still nothing today even comes close to it.

Unit 13 is a great game, I think Socom lovers will love this game!

I just wish they would release an addon for like a 4 vs 4 TDM or even 8 vs 8 maybe even deathmath!

I love Socom like most of its die hard followers, but I think slant six and zipper have not made an excellent Socom this generation on consoles. Confrontation was good, but not great, and the Socom 4 was okay.
IMO Socom hasn't had the critical acclaim since the PS2 days and developers need to reassess what they need to do to bring it to the Vita to make it a worthy purchase. Of course fans will buy it, but Socom has never really been a Blockbuster seller, but they need to find a way to make it appeal to the masses as we realize games aren't cheap and they have to make a profit. Hopefully if Sony decides to revisit the franchise they can make it worthwhile for themselves and the consumer.

Unit 13 is pretty good. Reminds me of Socom. I hope Socom debuts on PS VITA.
