Nearly three years since this games release and still the game's online servers are filled to the brim with players of all ages. This game remains to be one of the most popular online shooters around, and at such a low price, it's a great buy. The story mode features 12 missions, all of which can seem to carry on and on if you're somewhat of a perfectionist, due to the fact that the game doesn't nit-pick on all of the mission objectives. Those who are more likely to appreciate the game are those who are willing to take their gaming experience online (broadband only). None the less, a great buy all around, and at such a reasonable price, it's hard to deny Sony's third-person shooter.
This game is by far one of the best games ever made. Even though it has been out for some time now i still find myself playing through all the missions over and over again. It just never gets boring is what im saying.
The online play on this game is awesome, though i do have to say glitching has become a really big thing online so it kidna takes away from the fuun of playing online. Other than that, if you get a group of friends that won't cheat on ya just go at it it is off the hook. I play this game almost everyday now and I will probably continue to play this game for a long time.
Socom 2 has great realistic weapons, awesome missions that you just can't get tired of and when you die you just keep playing. Though i have to say when I have it on the hardest gameplay setting I tend to throw the controler on the bed but hey i still play the game. This is a definate must get game and a good game to add to anyones shooter collection.
If you are a fan of the first SOCOM game than these one will please you. SOCOM II raises the bar from the last game. Single player is still fun and exciting, except this time it's urban warfare. More weapons are added to the game including at-4's. This time you play as Specter from the first game, but still control a squad of three. You battle different terrorist groups and go from Brazil, Russia, Algeria, and outside of Washington state. You also get to work with the Russian Spetznaz and the British S.A.S. group. One new feature for this game is turrents located throughout levels on and offline. The online of this game is ,again as the first one, really fun. One thing that I like most about the online of SOCOM II is that it had all the same maps as SOCOM one and 12 new ones and a new gameplays such as breach, in which SEALs will try to break into the Terrorist using C4, and either rescuing hostages or planting a bomb. The online community is now upgraded from the last one giving the ablity to have clan tags, ranks, stats, and messages to other players.
