5 out of 5 eggsMost fun online in AGES!!

Pros: Great graphics. The on-line maps are well designed. The damage system works really well in the game. There are 10 maps so far on-line, for various size games.. Up to 32 players, no lag... !! and FINALLY the controls are setup is a user friendly style!! Much better button layout in SOCOM 4 than in 3....

Cons: 3rd person view only... I wish there would be an option to play in 1st person or 3rd person...

Other Thoughts: Even without the 1st Person view, this game is a blast.. COD looks old, even battlefield with Vietnam add-on are no match for the on-line gooey goodness, that Socom 4 offers..

2 out of 5 eggsSOSAD 4

Pros: Good graphics, smooth frame rate.
Controls are easy to use and learn.
Co-op mode is fun with friends.

Cons: Not SOCOM as it once was. COD has been ripped off to try and make people happy and this has isolated the diehard SOCOM fans. Classic mode was a good try, but just not right.

Other Thoughts: I would pay to have all the old SOCOM games from the PS2 bundled with the old graphics ported to the PS3, come on Zipper/Sony give the fans what they want!

1 out of 5 eggsTotal let down

Pros: Graphics are pretty nice

Cons: Total let down on gameplay...only reason some people like the game is for the gun attachment however despite that online gameplay is pretty lame maps arent as good as socom 1/2 the controls are pretty bad even with max sensitivity response is slow if using controller wont be able to match the gun. Less of a strategic game more of a shoot n scoot

Other Thoughts: GIVE US SOCOM 2 with improved graphics plz~ can charge 100bucks id still get it lol

4 out of 5 eggsA Blast to Play

Pros: Got here SUPER QUICK!! 2 days!!
fluid game controls. Sure it isn't the traditional Socom we all know and love. But it plays butter smooth, looks great. What more can ya ask.. I snagged this puppy when it was on sale, but even at full retail,this is well worth every ps3 FPS fan...

Cons: my deaths are greater than my kills, online.. :P

Other Thoughts: If you like games such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, Ghost Recon. Then this Socom 4 is right up your alley

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Good Graphics
-Customizable guns
-Different game modes (Suppression,Uplink, ect.)

Cons: -I was expecting more of a Socom 2 feel rather than a 3rd person Call of Duty
-Not many people play online
-Can't create game rooms like traditional Socom
-Ladderboards are already rigged with cheaters
-MVP system is not well incorperated

Other Thoughts: Newegg has a better deal than from where I bought it (BB)...so if you can wait for shipping...save a few bucks.

-Seems to be more Cons than Pros, and I am a die-hard Socom fan, but this game was a let down for me

5 out of 5 eggsDifferent but...

Pros: -Single Player, Co-Op, Multiplayer (1-32)
-Sony Move, this is a different take on gameplay. With the Sharp Shooter this adds a new level of near reality.
-3rd Person Shooter which allows better views of the map, the ability to camp and the ability to peak around corners and set traps for the enemy.
-Reintroduce the PMN mine and other granades.
-Character and weapon change options while in game. Prior Socom games did not allow you to change your character easily
-You can pick up granades and weapons of the dead.
-*Duel primary weapons, you can run with a sniper and an assault rifle. (No handguns available)

Overall this is a whole new look and feel to the Socom franchise. They deviated from the traditional method that we all loved and introduced us to a whole new experience. Although it is different, it is a great game experience single player and multiplayer.

Cons: -It does not feel like a traditional Socom
-No vehicles
-No pistols
-No lean, that is right, you cannot use the d-pad to lean, but you can peak around corners if you are using cover.
-They copied their MAG online interface and integrated it to Socom 4. This means that you can join friends easy but you cannot go into certain rooms and wait for all your friends to join. I belive that this was a mistake.
-It is harder to camp. In prior Socom games it was easy to take a sniper and lay low, but it seems that there are not nearly as many good places to hide.
-It is impossible to be stealthy in single player (HARD). I have yet been able to really attack the enemy with stealth (except for stealth missions).
-Less open map. What I mean is that you cannot have sniping compititions. The maps are very straight and there is little ability to see the whole map at one, allowing maximum sniping.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, I gave this a 5 egg because there are no other games that are this fun to play online or single player. I am a 3rd person fan and there not enough of them. Although they have a lot of flaws and have deviated from the traditional. I think that they can really make up in some future updates or additional add-ons. I think the knifing system is better. I think the graphics are better. I like the open mic (most times). The Sharp Shooter is a great addition.

*Don't buy this game if you want a traditional Socom
*Do buy this game if you like 3rd person shooters and are open to a different style of gameplay.

1 out of 5 eggsZipper Socom Sellout!

Pros: Yeah it has lots of detail in graphics but, that about it. Nice looking shell lol.

Cons: This game is bad. There is no lobby to join with your friends like custom rooms, you have to join a game your mate in and then they throw you against him.
You get to have 2 primary weapons like assault and sniper which was not like the older Socoms. There is no thinking about it when you arm up, you can have a sniper and a machine gun, thats lame. This should be one gun, when you run out of ammo, pistol or u steal a gun, terrible.
Zipper should have launched with more then 9 maps minimum, maybe even a couple of old tradition Socom maps revamped with new graphics.
The knife system with the R3 is a drag because when you want to shoot while moving you end up pulling a knife and get killed or have to soldiers wielding their knives like its a boxing match, aweful.
Its like a complete hype, sellout because you would think it would follow up tradition Socom genre which was great, instead it some MAG wanna be with elements of Call of Duty. This game makes Confrontation look good!

Other Thoughts: They should have followed up with Socom 3 or Combined assault for Ps2 which I think was the best of Socom with vehicles, fast pace, fun and simple.
Zipper Socom Combined Assault is a gem along with the addon map packs of socom 2 & 3. They had a great lobby system according to your time zone;East, West, Central, etc. You were able to make rooms easily.
Vehicles were such a part of the game the made it different from all the CODS, MAGS, FPS out there. It allowed you to get technical kills just by running over ppl or blasting them with rockets or vehical mines. Tanks, Humvee, Jeeps, Pickup trucks with turrets just added a sense of speed and danger around the corners.
The maps felt bigger because you needed land vehicles to get around.
Zipper hyped up their new Socom and just did not deliver for this hardcore Socom fan. I will go back retro on my ps2 and enjoy outdated graphics but at least it is fun and practical. They should have taken Combined Assault and polish it. Ripoff!

1 out of 5 eggsSocom FOR?

Pros: The Maps are very detailed, there is NO LAGGING whatsoever. the basics are there an actual CLAN ROSTER unlike COD . the mics are smooth and clear.

Cons: no lobby chats,terrible OTS(over the shoulder) camera view. tends to zoom in on walls when you close up. 9 maps isnt enough, no vehicles, 2 primarys and no PISTOLS, no D-PAD lean, stupid crouch button, ripping off Uncharted 2 which is not needed..no grenade arch, grenades seemingly are thrown randomly purposely team-killing

Other Thoughts: $57.99? Should be $14.99 Socom Confrontation PART 2..Zipper should have made Socom 2 HD..for the HARDCORE FANS ...not sure if Zipper had a FULL say in this final project, very dissapointing ..

1 out of 5 eggsNot Socom

Pros: Kind of fun.

Cons: Nothing like socom 1,2,3. Confrontation was OK, still sucked compared to the old socoms on ps2. I don't even know why they named this game socom. The franchise should have neded after 3. Even fireteam bravo1,2 for psp were better than this.

Other Thoughts: Socom is dead to me.

2 out of 5 eggsA huge miss

Pros: It's third person!!! I like having two teams to control. They have an easy option and don't start the game on a difficult level.

Cons: It sucks. It looks too much like COD and doesn't look real. The four PS2 games looked much better and seemed more realist and practical to me.

I also hate having to earn weapons and attachments while I play the game. It should be offered at the beginning. I'm sure the real SOCOM Tier 1 Operators don't have to go out on a DA mission with only a pistol because they haven't earned a rifle yet.

Other Thoughts: IT'S THIRD PERSON!!! I own COD Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2, but bought them both on Craigslist so the company wouldn't benefit. MW2 is ok and Black Ops totally sucks, but I refuse to purchase games, that are in first person view, brand new. Why can't other manufactures offer these games in both 1st and 3rd person so I don't throw up after 15 minutes of playing them?!

Metal of Honor released last year was the best game because it's based on real world tactics and knowledge. Just wish it was 3rd person, then I would buy it brand new.

Hope the manufactures are listening.

It looks like Zipper Interactive decided to mirror this game after the very popular COD games. I guess that's why it sucks. I wish they would do a refresh of the four games they did for the PS2. They were my favorite games of all time.
