SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3
A fun but short romp throug familiar territory.
Let me get this out of the way, I love SOCOM. But that dosent mean I would let them pass of a crap game and pretend to like it because i enjoy the series. That said, I loved this game. The controls are strange at first but once you get the hang of them your foes with be dropping at your feet. Using almost any gun you could want, M16's, G36's, M107's, Desert Eagles, RPG's. If theres a gun you like, its most likely here. I prefer the 417.....just sayin. But anywhoo. The graphics arent amazing but they do the job, only once did I find something that I had to laugh at, flying terrorist anyone? The sound i great, the AI is good but could have been polished, ex. an enemy might take cover on the side of a car facing you. But all in all, a lot f fun can be had here. In either the short campaign, the co-op campaign, or the online multiplayer and custom missions, theres enough unlocks and guns to keep any socom fan or not occupied for some time. I highly reccomend this game, definently a purchase
I'm going to give my personal thoughts on the game- pros and cons. First I want to say that I am a hardcore Scom fan. I have owned and logged hundreds of hours playing all 3 versions of fireteam bravo (along with Tactical strike) on psp and combined assault on ps2. The most significant pros to this game are the lasting plyability. The online competitive mode and co-op mode will keep you busy for days at a time. The graphics are very well designed for the psp and resemble that of Tactical Strike and it is just an overall GOOD GAME. Now the cons; The game feels more like Tactical Strike than I personally think it should (I wasn't so much of a fan of that game) the tac map in the missions is a little bit more difficult to read than that of the early FTBs because it appears more like a overhead picture. Also I think it would have been better had the campaign been a little longer. It took me exactly 3hrs 13mins to complete the campaign my first time with only 8 missions. Custom missions are Awesome though!!!
i miss ftb2
To start off DO NOT buy this game used if you intend on playing it online. there is a verification code and if the person who owned it first used it you will not be able to get online unless you pay extra for a new code ( I thinks its $20 for a new code). The campaign sucked and was to short and there is no cool reward mission like how ftb2 had the secret sausage mission. Online is ok but hackers are taking over and many people have game saves allowing them to put things on their gun that aren't supposed to be allowed on them. But the online is still fun. I don't like the reviving though. It takes to long compared to how ftb2 you could get a guy revived immediately which allowed for intense firefights. Overall this game is still good and worth getting. It's one of the best series to play online for the psp. BUT, i enjoyed the good old ftb2 days alot better. if you own ftb2 look at the map leaderboards for siege im pretty sure im number 1still

SOCOM is back!
Well it's that time agian PSP shooter fans the best Shooter ever on the PSP is back! SOCOM: Fire Team Bravo 3! This time it's a real FPS game with over the sholdier gameplay, and a full targeting system via the same ideas behind Resistances for the PSP system. On top of that it will feature PSN log ins, online medal awards VOIP chat, game lobbies, co-op via infastructure (and ad-hoc), as well as the same cool guns, and addons you have come to know and love! Also with a new engine pushing the PSP to it's limits and showing that the PSP can do good graphics, and good FPS at the same time like Resistance did it should be a modern warfare style must by for all on the PSP system! It will feature less Navy Seal interviews, and bull crap that turned off many to the older titles on the PSP. IE the annoying videos that would pop up mid gameplay with some X Navy Seal Braging about how they would do the job via street talk and crap. (I hated it personaly but eh some people love it)
portable game of the year
I bought this game on my birthday and its been my favorite game ever since. The graphics are top notch, with great detail. the storyline was a bit bland, and campaign is short, but those are my only complaints. thedifficulty levels will suit any gamer. the weapons are top notch in detail and atributes. the online multiplayer is great, the only imperfection is you start with every weapon available. The online is intense and it is so good that i have seen it mistaken for Modern Warfare 2. there have only been a few glitches. and most of the glitches are from hackers. with downloadable content, i love the online play. my last complaint is that there are only two non multiplayer modes. Other wise it is unquestionably the best portable game. out of ten, i would rate this game 9.25. I would reccomend this to anyone who has ever enjoyed a shooter
be VERY careful buyng this game used.
if you buy this game second hand understand that there is a code with the game that is required to play online. If the previous user activated that code with his/her psn account then you will have to pay an extra $20 to buy a new online activation code. which usually eliminates the money saved by purchasing used.
This game is awesome . Ok , so I never really played gun games but it wasn't because they're 'bad' or anything because that doesn't matter to me and I don't get 2 buy games all that often so I've downloaded almost every PSN Game demo and I played this ones demo and freaking loved it and I played the demo like 50 times over like 2-3 weeks and then finally got it and It was even better than the demo I love the campaign and the different places and weapons it's just such a fun game u should totally get it !!! : )
great game way better than ftb2
socm fire team bravo 3 (ftb3) its one of my favorite games to play on psp. honestly i could play this game all day to me its not just the choise of guns but u can also block guns that u dont want people to use so lots of games that i join have only snipers (exept that you have to have a secondary gun so most of the time its just a pistol) sniping in this game takes not only skill but lots of tatics because there are always new places to try and snipe from it just doesnt end. most of the people out there have their own stopthat nobody can kill them at unless they have died a few times by that person. also if you think you are missing out just because you didnt pre-order think agin just go to home play station network store and just download the all the wepons that have been added so far. i think i have been able to play this game almost every day since i got. the other maps in tyhe game great there are a varity of ways to play some people i know will only use snipers and onthers just charge with a big machien gun and destory everything in thier path but one of the draw backs is that you cant get all of the campaine guns on-line so dont get to hooked to the guuns that u can play off-line. ohhh i also forgot to talk about the co-op wich is a campaine that u can play with friends on-line wich is great because its so much more fun to play the campaine with people u can talk to much better. for thoghs of u who like to blow stuff up and shoot badguys get this game its one the best out.
This is my favorite game ever I played for like 2-3 weeks straight and then i lost my wireless internet so stopped for a while but Im picking it back up. I recommend this game for anyone that loves a good shooter, but this is so much better than just a shooter this is 110 out 100 and online play is awesome to. The graphics are awesome for the psp, there is like at least 85 guns, i think. The story mode isint to long but good for psp's since there games are usually shorter, anyways i loved this game, i know others did it has really good reviews so i think you should get this game. Never forget online play, customizing guns and your character. in summary good graphics average storymode length, online, and lots of big GUNSSS. thanks get this game
good game. bad price
its a great game but not worth the 40 bucks. the campaign is better than the first two but i beat it in 4 hours. i dont know what all the fuss is about though. may be the online. idk it will not let me play online. wait a couple of months until its price goes down.
