Zipper Socom Sellout! 04/26/2011
This review is from: SOCOM 4
Yeah it has lots of detail in graphics but, that about it. Nice looking shell lol.
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!
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 I will go back retro on my ps2 and enjoy outdated graphics but at least it is fun and practical.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!
