[email protected] Reviews - Socom 4

[email protected] writes: The Socom series has forever been known for being very tactical whether you’re ordering around your fellow teammates, or just making sure you plan out an effective strategy to take down the enemy. Lately though it’s been feeling like the series just couldn’t be revived from its former glory. If you’re wondering whether Socom 4 is the next best installment in the series, and is for you, then you won’t want to miss what’s coming your way.

am i the only one who thinks that this is the worst socom

Commodore2708d ago (Edited 2708d ago )

This SOCOM sucks ass...It's pathetic that it has been basically 8 years since a good SOCOM came out. 3 was alright (I always drove the tank and tank battles were fun as hell). I'm already bored of this SOCOM. 9 MAPS?! GTOH Zipper. I dominate every game with like a 2.5/3.0 K/D Ratio. Selling it this week.

Seth Luisi should be taken out back and put down for what he's done to the series. 5 years into the PS3 cycle and we have yet to see a good SOCOM.

Everyone wants SOCOM 2 remake (indicated that it is the highest rated game suggestion on SONY's website). It's so simple yet SONY is too stupid. What's the point of having a suggestion center if you don't acknowledge the most popular suggestion?

Spoken like a true vet. Couldn't agree more. Luisi needs beat with a garden hose for the way he has let this franchise slowly rot. Slant 6 sucked but that game felt more like socom than this does. (shudders that I actually praised them)

Worse than Confrontation? Worse than 3? naa but its not better than 1 or 2

Socom 4 just feels like a bag of mixed crap. It takes more elements from other games then it does from its own series which is why it failed.

MintBerryCrunch2708d ago

sony...go to zipper and tell them to remaster socom 1 & 2 for the ps3...put it on PSN and see that collection become popular yet again...

only problem i see is if they can implement MP, or if that is even an option

Ser2708d ago

I would buy that collection in a millisecond.

the_kutaragi_baka2708d ago

yeha,SOCOM II HD definitly has to come back. The others were alright but SOCOM II was the ultimate game.

spunnups2708d ago

ok so we all the campaign was weak, so was KZ3's, but does the multiplayer make it worth the asking price? I love Socom multi, I even found myself enjoying Confrontation after a couple patches.

Newtype2708d ago (Edited 2708d ago )

I wouldn't say the campaign was weak. I liked it. KZ3's campaign sucked ass though.

Commodore2708d ago

This SOCOM's story was the blandest P.O.S ever. I never got that SEAL feeling like I did in the others (Especially the embassy mission where you had to defend it for 10 minutes while facing sniper fire....INCREDIBLE). The main character in the game was the biggest puss.

I liked the way they did it with the old SOCOM's. 3/4 missions in 4/5 different areas and get some variety.

LOOK_AT_THIS_I2708d ago

Im still waiting for Zipper to patch Socom into this game. Maybe now that the network is working we can get that in the future.

The single player is decent at best. The co-op can be enjoyable, but the missions are nowhere near as slick as they were back on the ps2. The AI teammates are awful, those sob's will not stealth to any location. They go out running across the middle of a field and start up the enemy fire at a ridiculous rate.

They took a huge step back in my opinion on all fronts with this game. The only thing that they done right is that there is very little lag, not that it makes a difference when I line up a head shot through the scope and a guy blindfires a machine gun 2/3 of the map away and headshots me.

I desperately hope that one day, someone will figure out that the ps3 needs a good fast paced 3rd person shooter. Hell the 3rd person that they tacked on to mod warfare 2 felt more like socom than this does. I just dont get it.

spunnups2708d ago

Uncharted is my favorite 3rd person shooter series this gen, followed by Gears and Warhawk.

LOOK_AT_THIS_I2708d ago

Loved warhawk. It filled the socom void for a while. I just sucked flying the planes. Socom graphics are fine but they just made mag in 3rd person. This is not socom no matter how many times you fans say it is. It's only connection with socom is the title. The still over the shoulder view is bad at times and needs addressed, when you hit a wall it crawls back to you. It's like you put your nose on the wall and slowly back away. The socom forums are overloaded with fans bitching about this game because it is so far away from what we were told to expect

soljah2708d ago

just don't understand where all the socom hate in the press is coming from. the single player campaign is down right fun. with some of the best graphics to date on the ps3. yes even uc2 quality in places.
liking the co-op with 3 or 4 other buddies. very addicting.
the multi player has alot of different options on the type of match u can play in. does need a good party system and some tweaks to the game balance. but knowing zipper there will be alot of support for S4

I'm enjoying the game's multiplayer, but please...Uncharted 2? You've got to be kidding, man. SOCOM 4's graphics aren't even in the same category as Uncharted 2.
