Loot Ninja Review: Socom: Confrontation (PS3)

The Socom franchise was an integral piece in the development of tactical shooters ever since it first graced the PS2 all those years ago. Furthermore, it has expanded to an important exclusive title for Sony and gamers have waited patiently for the first iteration in the next generation. Rivals like Ghost Recon and Rainbow 6 have made the transition very smoothly; has Socom done the same? While the game has amazing potential, gamers are left wanting more and will have to wait a little longer before all the bugs are fixed.

Not a bad review. Honest but scores a little lower than I would give it. In any case still better than the thrashing IGN gave it.

Fully C/S with the review.

SOCOM has been around for too long though. M.A.G will re-create a new cult of gamers like SOCOM did and people will love Zipper for that. The franchise doesn't need milking. BRING ON M.A.G!

Shame to see SOCOM dip so low. It used ot be a monster back in the day.

Personally I wouldnt pay attention to these reviews.. IF you were a fan of Socom 2.. This is the closest you will get to that same feeling.. The servers issues are getting fixed.. They are releasing another patch soon.. Other than the Server issues and missing clan support.. THe game is amazing.. Its Socom.. Plain and simple.. The intense battles you remember from Soc 2 are still there.. Most of the bad reviews werent fans of Socom 1 and 2.. So they mark it down for the server problems..

A fan of socom reviewed it and it got 8.5.. But even he marked it down a bit for server and missing clan support..

It's a shame to see a great franchise fall apart like that.
