First off the game's graphics suck it looks like they made it for ps one. Second nothing like the original Socom's at all it was about stealth not running in guns blastin. And last Socom 4 has a lot of glitchin problems like when ur in cover behind something and u try to aim its a short delay which it the developers fault. The Conculsion is dont waste ur time like i did it sucks.
I liked the game. Ive been a fan of previous Socom's, but my biggest question is....in what crazy backwards reverse universe does the tactic "just run out and try to charge them" work? This isnt WWII era Russia...I was more frustrated at how poor the AI quality was than anything else in the game. Not just enemy AI, but my own team mates too. Somehow the command "get behind that cover" turns into "no its ok, just stand there and die." Thats my biggest complaint. The graphics werent the greatest and I cant say anything about sound, seeing as how my speakers are blown on my tv. However, there was a mission where I was playing a chick, and my teammates kept saying "moving SIR." I've only been in the army for four years, but Im pretty sure a lady officer is a ma'am. Just sayin. I really liked the multiplayer, the online co-op was pretty fun. I played that more than I did the campaign, which took me something like 6 or so hours, maybe. I also liked the weapon mod system that they did. Overall, yeah, Im glad I have gamefly. Sometimes I wanted to punch someone in the throat while I played it, but I had fun. It seemed over-hyped and a little rushed.
