Anthony Accinelli writes "If you are one of the few, I mean... many Playstation 3 players who subscribe to Playstation Plus, you are most likely playing the SOCOM 4 Beta as you read this. While many of you probably read that last sentence and thought, "Ha, if I could play it I certainly wouldn't be reading about it", you might be surprised. Turns out there's not a whole lot to like about SOCOM 4."
Yea I don't like the friendly fire. Just came out of a game half an hour ago or so and some little boys(could hear them laughing)were attacking me as the bomb tech. But that's when I like vote to kick.
Agree about the movement with DS3, the reticule struggles to keep up with someone who is running or strafing. I spend a lot of time in prone.
Otherwise I'm having a blast!
it feels like Uncharted 2 with military skins. Is that a bad thing? For me, yes. For the rest of the gaming population? Well, I think the sales numbers behind Call of Duty: Black Ops can answer that.
the perk system and the ease of getting a kill can answer that... COD is fun but also junk at the same time.
oh and this
Third person shooters never seem to move all that quickly, but SOCOM 4 just seems slow.
i have not played 40 hours but yes it does move much slower then COD.. The only game other then Uncharted mentioned for comparison.. Its MUCH faster and smoother then Uncharted!!
COD is a arcade shooter
Socom is a pro's shooter
Socom 4 is not a true Socom game, and its clear that Zipper doesn't give a shit about their community. They should have called it SOMAG 4. R.I.P. Socom...
On a side note, theres a petition for a Socom 2 HD remake on the Playstation Blog:
I tend to think they are going to release a Socom 2 HD eventually, but they would be stupid to announce it until some time has passed after the release of Socom 4. Socom 2 HD would cut into the Socom 4 sales for sure, so I think they will let people buy that game and then announce and release Socom 2 sometime this year, maybe in the fall.
well i love it. Been playing socom since the first game released and i had to buy the oldschool network adapter for the ps2.
This game isn't socom 1/2 however it does still have that socom feel. It's also leaning a bit into GR:AW territory.
it's just refreshing to play a tactical shooter again, one that isn't about camping for killstreaks and sprinting round a map spraying an smg.
There are a few rough edges but I've heard that a few of my complaints have already been fixed and should there when the game releases.
