I am a fan of SOCOM..since they released last version of SOCOM it was awesome but allot of glitches. This SOCOM 4 game just sucks nothing about it is tactical, nothing can be customized. Its just plain boring game nothing about it is worth spending time on. I have had it for a day and already bored so im sending it back.

i was reading the reviews from this game and had mixed feelings about playing it. i was expecting a tactical , stealthy game but was highly disappointed. navy seals don't go break the door down and blast everyone they are stealthy and no matter how stealthy you are in this game it always alerts the AI in the game. i tried ten different ways to silently take out enemies only to start a full out gun fight. if i wanted that type of game play i would play COD. i was very disappointed in this game. guns weren't that great and found my self running low on ammo a few times. i was expecting greatness and got lameness .

The first SOCOM was a game worth playing and owning. This version is like so many games that cater to on line players. This game has been stripped down to make it a better game play for on line gamers.
Gone is your ability to out fit your team, the ability to pack a silenced side arm. Gone is the ability to order your team to various way point and perform silent kills.
I read so on line gamer comment that he only plays 1st person games and 3 rd games seem lame. Here lies the problem, too many games are made for the on line gamer. So games are being dumbed down for the average user. Instead of being outfit with your proper T.O.E ( tactical operation equipment) You have to earn mods. SOCOM isn't DEAD SPACE. I should'nt have to earn weapon mods.

This version of SOCOM isn't anything special. The good it's 3rd person, which all REAL SHOOTER gamers should be. 3rd person allows you to pick up targets and move like you were really on a mission.

1st person shooter are just for kids wanting to go up against their buddies on line. The bad, EVERYTHING I mention above. Too many options taken out of the gamers hands, just to cater to on line players.
