I am a huge fan of Socom, and I pre-ordered it because of the awsome Gun bundle. Comes with eye camera, both sensor controllers and the machine gun. I had been looking for that gun for killzone, but its really rare to find, and if you buy it buy itself, its like 40 bucks. Buy the bundle! These games were made to play with it! And at 149.95. for everything, its basically for free.

First off, my big gripe is that i beat this game, due to having a day off, in one night. 7 hours and 26 minutes. Unacceptable! They wanted to make itnstand out and get it out of the 4-6 hours of gameplay we see often. Really, 90 minutes more? RENT IT! I think 30 minutes were cutscenes. Gameplay- Wasn't too bad, I'm not a big critic on bugs/glitches because well I just like to play the game. The movement was acceptable, except when it came to tryin to get to cover quickly. You would have to turn and face the wall/car/pop machine u wanted to use. Petty I know. NOBODY is going to actually read this so I won't go into many details. Graphics- nothing to write home about. Cartoonish and just generic looking. Nuff said Lasting appeal huh? Well, I got bored going into the secod to last mission. Needless to say, I didn't even finish a mission on custom campaign. So yeah, not so much on the lasting appeal. Sounds- Probably the best part. Only because well. I had the volume down pretty low.
Rated 4 out of 10 by KingPin82 Ignores SOCOM tradition
SEa, Air, Land...this game was all about LAND. What happened to the missions at sea, like taking over an oil rig or parachuting into a campaign? The missions in SOCOM 4 are very redundant and all you do is shoot tons of guys who love to throw grenades or shoot RPGs. I love to judge a game based on its story mode and this violates what SEALs are all about...STEALTH. It is impossible in SOCOM 4 to complete a level using stealth, its inevitable someone will eventually find you, with the exception of the "quiet" missions using your female ally. Commanding your team and allies was weak, remember when you can have them deploy frags or breech doors. What about using the headset to command your team. I remember that was what made the first SOCOM unique. It made you felt like a true operative. I think the creators of SOCOM are forgetting what made them popular and they are trying to mimic other games which is...well...STUPID. I love SOCOM, but if they keep this up I will never purchase the game again.

SOCOM 4 is here on PS3 , A saga then was famous on PS2 comes here with a real game on PS3 (Confrontation was very Ok) , but SOCOM 4 is one of those games then only reminds me how franchises forget everything and try to copy new styles , and its because this game is basiclly a Call Of Duty in third person , which could be goog but SOCOM systematic was the tactical action and thats what makes the franchise famous on PS2 , the campaing give to us around 8 or 10 hours of action gameplay with stealth missions and also you can create your own missions with the map , enemies , difficult and more and play it online with your friends , the online on this game is pretty Ok but for me was nothing really new , becuase like i said , this game is CoD in 3rd person , but i spend some hours playing it and it was just good but not more , SOCOM 4 is really better then Confrontation and , but i really hope Zipper could return to the tactical action and stop using action.

I'm sorry but to all you who bash this game It's not COD get over it nobody cares to here you complain thats its not a run and gun game like the COD series is, S4 is a great game with a good story mode, the game runs smoothly alot better then the beta did which is what most of you are complaining about the beta wasent the final game and keep in mind them patch's or updates we get fix our games and to those who say mag2 its not even close to mag mag is a challenging game which requires team work and dosent have the lame perk system COD has online is a blast i wish there were more game modes online but hey it's a perfect game and you have the option of 3rd person you dont have to run around scoped in any one who enjoys the Tom clancy style games or previous socom games will fall in love with the game after getting used to it and dont be cheap get the FULL DEPLYMENT version playing with the move and the sharp shooter is a blast. BUY THIS GAME ASAP!
Rated 9 out of 10 by sOcOmWrEcKsYoO Socom at its finest
Ive always been a socom fan and obviously all socom fans know that socom 2 was probably the best socom period however this one in my opinion takes the cake. the campaign alone is awesome, with much faster (yet tactical) gameplay than the classic socoms mixed with completely tactical levels only like the old ones. i thinks that this is the greatest thing to happen to the franchise. haters will hate but as a fan of all the socom games including fireteam bravos 1-3 this is my favorite. i haven't actually gotten to play the online other than the beta due to the recent lock down of the PSN however the beta was awesome so im sure the final product will be as well. and the online for all the other socoms has always been great so i doubt this will dissatisfy fans. the only thing this game lacks are the classic parachuting levels./ at sea levels that they really could have done some amazing things with for ps3, however this is not enough to make fans of the originals hate this game. thank you socom for absolutely destroying call of duty ;)

Well, after years of waiting Socom 4 is here. I'm not disappointed with the game but I'm not jumping up and down for joy either. Socom overall has a decent campaign mode that is a little short as most shooters tend to be in this day and age. Socom 4 is not like the other Socoms however if that is what you are looking for. This game is a mix of Socom (very little of it) and Call of Duty (a lot of it). This is too bad as Socom used to focus on the tactical side and not a run and gun mode. With that said, the graphics are decent and the sound is also pretty good. The online play, well, I haven't been able to try that out which is why I bought the game mainly in the first place. The PSN is still down as of right now and I am waiting patiently to play this game online. I would rent this game first before going out to buy it or wait for the PSN to come back up as we are all still waiting for them to fix everything and untangle this mess.

I must say out of all the Socom games my favorite ones have been Socom 1 and Socom 2 AND HOPEFULLY SOCOM 4 will be even better. I loved Socom 1 and 2 because of their single player missions, and yes I liked playing online too. But for SOCOM 4 I'm really hopeing that not only does it have single player missions but MULTIPLAYER CO-OP because of the fact that it would really be COOL!!! to play with friends and family in the same household on the same t.v. (like resident evil 5, split screen where we can separate and not be stuck to each other) for example during a mission 1 player can secure a building and while doing that the other player can be securing another building or we can have the option to stick together. Because I can always either player the single missions myself or play online. So PLEASE OH PLEASE let there be multiplayer co-op!!! I hope that I made sense and I hope that the creators of this game will see this post.
