Socom 4: U.S. Navy Seals Review for the PS3

 

AKA, the Post-PSN Outage Apocalyptic Killing Squad.

Surprisingly good campaign; Reasonably intelligent AI; Mostly intact classic multiplayer

Trying too hard to be CoD; Clunky load-outs; Repetitive environments

Fun co-op ; Great voice acting ; Good squad based controls

Unimpressive/already done story ; Not much customization ; AI has it's hindering moments

Back in the glory days of the PS2, there was a little game that got a lot of hype and made owners of the system very excited. SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs was your typical 3rd person shooter, but it also brought a new aspect to the way we played: commanding...

SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs Review

 

More like SO-SO, amirite!?

Pretty solid shooter; good multiplayer additions; a variety of "realistic" ordnance to try out and level up

Story and set pieces fall flat; terrible stealth missions; motion controls are extraneous at best

All in all, SOCOM 4, like any new game in a series that has a near-and-dear fan base, is going to rub some people the wrong way. But it's really not a bad shooter; its biggest issue is going to be whether there's a there there, to quote Gertrude Stein....

SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs Review

 

Admittedly, I have never been a SOCOM fan, primarily because I've never been an avid online player. But I was excited to give SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs a try, primarily because it featured a full single-player campaign, one that even sports a bit of...

SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs Review

 

SOCOM 4 doesn't come out until next week, but we've got the review for you right now! And we only had to kill a hundred guys to get it to you.

SOCOM has always been one of the more polarizing franchises. Some people just can’t get into it, and that's fine. The multiplayer for SOCOM 4 is solid, and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I wish there were more game modes and maps to make my purchase...

SOCOM 4: U.S. NAVY SEALs (Playstation 3) Review

 

Zipper Interactive returns to home to see if they can reclaim a portion of their former glory with SOCOM 4: U.S. NAVY SEALs.

game is silky smooth online and off ; six day storyline helps push it forward ; robust online component ; great production, better than expected

if you only want single-player, might be too short ; the A.I. Aren't always the quickest bunnies in the forest ; stealth missions are ok, but feel unnecessary

SOCOM 4 helps rehabilitate the iconic name of “SOCOM.” While SOCOM 4 is a little short when its comes to blowing through the single-player campaign, the multiplayer component will keep you around for a while. Helping you ease into SOCOM's world is the...

SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs- PS3

 

This is a decent online shooter with a fairly bland and mildly repetitive single-player component added on. This is not quite the PS3 return we had anticipated for SOCOM but at least it's better that the awful online-only SOCOM: Confrontation. We...

SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs- PS3

 

It's very obviously oriented towards the multiplayer experience, so if that's what you're after, this is one of the most enjoyable and complete tactical combat experiences in the current console generation. It's a shame the single-player isn't quite up...

SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs- PS3

 

U.S. Navy SEALs] is, by some distance, the best SOCOM game yet, although it still lacks polish in comparison with the likes of Call of Duty and Crysis 2. If you view such concerns as mere superficialities, then you'll find that it is an enjoyable,...
