SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs (PlayStation 3)

 

Though it has a long history of bringing tactical third-person shooter action to Sony systems, the SOCOM series' debut on the PlayStation 3 failed to fully capture the excitement of its predecessors. Yet while SOCOM: Confrontation disappointed, SOCOM 4...

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

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 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...

Awesome! A modern facelift on the OMP shooting legend!

 

AWESOME! Updated on Apr 20, 2011

Graphics are awesome, the feel and control is great. A great new set-up. Has a modern shooter face-lift yet still has classic SOCOM gameplay

Minor issues...its still a beta, but the voting system has got to be changed. Major pain and the voting notification box blocks half your screen while your playing in game, that has got to go

Consumer review by:

ARGH!!! Possibly the worst shooter I've ever played.

 

For starters, anyone who says this title is anything like its predecessors is A) flat out lying B) talking out their ass, or C) mentally handicapped to the point that they won't remember reading this review by the time they finish. To even hold this...

Battlefield-esque shooter... and I should be given sainthood and a wet rimj** for even saying that much

NOT AT ALL LIKE ANY OF THE PREVIOUS GAMES IN THE SOCOM SERIES ; Honestly, I'm forced to question whether Zipper and Sony were trying to put an end to the SOCOM series by allowing the general public to play this game

Consumer review by:

Disgrace to the old socoms

 

If you liked the old socoms, you wont like this one.

next gen graphics

zipper totally sold out, game plays more like cod than old socoms. Its incredibly generic and just plain boring, lacks passion and dull, camera view and controls are horrible

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...
