"Realistic games, as they go, can tend to be rather challenging. You find yourself wanting to run into a room guns-blazing, bandana on your head, loading every idiot with a problem with lead. Most popular online shooters - Resistance 2 and COD5 for example - teach you that you can happily romp around and pop up from your inevitable death without too much of a problem.
Not so in SOCOM Confrontation, a game that takes intimate pride in punishing you for your inability to tactically plan out your next move. It's a realistic, third-person and online-only shooter that will tax the brains of the less cerebral gun-runner, but may be the olive branch that draws in more strategic gamers to the mix."
