First of all this game is shutting down 1/28/2014. There exists NO offline campaign at all effectively rendering this game a beer coaster!

That having been said, it was a descent game with many small irritations that led to the demise of a MUCH beloved franchise.

When the game first came out it was incomplete, full of bugs and glitches and was a complete and total MESS. As time went on it was somewhat fixed but still inferior to the originals on Playstation 2.

As a Socom vet since Socom 1 i can tell you that it DOES have some level of enjoyment but nothing like the old days. Some of the design choices were horrid!

A run button? Railings get in your way when you shoot, grenades are an exercise in frustration often bouncing in odd ways or hitting the wall when they clearly shouldn't.

Not being able to look through a window in first person without shooting the wall. Leaning to shoot or toss a grenade is a mess. No leaning while prone instead you roll...

Only 7 maps when previous games had many more. Armor and encumberence are a terrible idea! Night maps are far too dark in order to sell the DLC that adds thermal scopes.

The DLC came way too late, cost way too much and some of the maps should have been STANDARD with the initial release! We're talking maps that were free since Socom 1!!

There is some level of enjoyment here but as i said, it's far below Socom 1 and 2. You have less than a month to try this out, and you can get some fun out of it but it's not a TRUE Socom experience by any means.

H-Hour worlds elite will be out in 2015, wait for that game if you want a true Socom style shooter, and for the love of all that is holy, STAY FAR, far away from Socom 4. It makes this game look like a masterpiece!
