Edit: Beaten. *grumble*

ouch at the one 3 lol....either way the reviews are looking good xD

They aren't terrible (save for Destructoid), but there aren't as good as I hoped. I thought it get 7 & 8s and even some 9s as well. Maybe things will change but I doubt it. Makes me think buying that $149.99 bundle isn't going to make me happy.

Knew it was Jim Sterling when I saw the 3.

How one game can be 8.5/10 and 3/10 at the same time?

LoL at reviewers.

hope this will end up in the 80s area...

Socom series has declined in quality drastically since the second.

Fully expected this to be shit. Graphics are largely dreadful. If I see it cheap, I might pick it up in the summer as I still have a lot of Socom friends from the PS2 days, but Sony really ought to drop this franchise for a while.

Also, seriously, NATO? It's called Socom 4: US Navy SEALS... and yet you play as NATO. Unreal.

so it was delayed for nothing? 

Being in 3rd place never felt so good
