my wallet is telling me to stop but my heart says otherwise. Who is in for a gamestop raid :P

Reminds me of MAG. Not really extreme gameplay considering and kind of disappointed with the graphics so far. Perhaps those will be updated by release.

I've never been a SOCOM fan. I thought they were good games, and I've played all the PSP demos, but it's just not my kind of shooter. I like Sci-Fi, shooters like Resistance, Killzone, and Halo.


It does look like MAG a little bit, but they did make MAG. My guess is the online will be a combination of MAG and Confrontation (the good parts). Graphically it's acceptable, but I'm sure this is a old build.

Any Socom fan well tell you that Socom has never been about graphics but instead all about its addictive game play.

@cgoodno: graphics are not gameplay...

@ABizzel1: Zipper didnt make Confrontation, which is apparent since it blows compared to the others(not that i didnt still put 100+hours into it) I just want the same addicting gameplay that all other SOCOM games had.

I might even bounce between classic and non-classic game modes from time to time. If anyone knows SOCOM, there is no fun playing ranked matches with no respawns without a proper team or i might hop in respawn from time to time when I just want to build really see how much accuracy you gain when you go from ranked to unranked matches, b/c you can't afford to miss in no respawn matches

***@cgoodno: graphics are not gameplay... ***

Who said they were? Did you ignore the first part of my comments that talked about gameplay looking a lot like MAG?

And a discussion on graphics is totally within the realm of proper discussion in addition to gameplay.

@ cgoodno
MAG is First Person, Socom Has Always Been 3rd Person, Thats a Big difference in Gameplay.

***MAG is First Person, Socom Has Always Been 3rd Person, Thats a Big difference in Gameplay. ***

Nothing in that video looked any different than what I've done in MAG. Sure, the perspective may be different, but the gameplay didn't look any different.

I'd love to be proven wrong. Don't take my analysis of this video as me saying the game will just be MAG or that the graphics will disappoint me at release. It's an analysis of what I saw in that trailer, which was a TPS version of MAG. I saw absolutely nothing new. Nothing.

Please, Zipper, prove me wrong in the future. It will only lead to increasing the chances I would buy the game.

ABizzel12823d ago

Read people. I never said Zipper made SOCOM Confrontation, I said they made MAG.

Bring back the Voice Commands from Socom 1 and 2, and make the game play like those two did and I'll buy it day 1.
