I will start off by saying this game is great. The graphics aren't Killzone 3 grade but very nice. 3D and Move support make this game blast to play. The gameplay itself is almost perfect, with fast paced action and smooth controls (for Move as well), but the voice acting and story kinda bring the epicness down a notch. The main characters kinda bicker between each other throughout the game and it's somewhat annoying, and the other 3 characters, you pretty much know nothing about them except that they are there, and their names.... which I can't seem to recall lol. It's a great game I haven't been able to play online because of the PSN blackout. It's worth a buy, because it's a getaway from all the FPS out there right now, and it's Socom.

socom4 is clearly a quality 3rd person tactical shooter. if you don't like 3rd person, you won't like this game. if you don't like tactical style gameplay (especially multiplayer), you won't like this game. personally i prefer call of duty style action, but that's not what this game is trying to be so it's unfair to say it fails at it. bottom line: single player is fun but not great, and lasts about 3 hours. multiplayer is deeper and will probably be where most players spend the most of their time. again, if you approach this game with a "cod" run and gun mindset you will quickly be frustrated.
