I am a big Socom fan. I still consider Socom 2 the best online game ever over 500 hours of playing it back in the day.
Socom 3 was a let down, Combined assault was a let down...Confrontation was a return to Socom but the developers did a sloppy job, Socom 4 is a complete sell out it's Call of Duty in 3rd person. Zipper completely removed everything that was great about Socom and turned Socom into a generic shooter. I find it hilarious that they think that if they make it like Call of Duty a mainstream game people will swtich to Socom...sales will prove them wrong.
The ironic thing as bad as the reviews are and as disappointed I was with the beta, i'm most likely still buying it Tuesday
Hopefully Zipper will listen to their fans when this game bombs, it deserves the reviews its getting so far.
Good points, it is a shame to see the once great tactical game; transform into a 3rd person call of duty, (according to some of the reviews) which makes it just another shooter. I'm seriously upset about that and not just me checkout the official socom forums to see the negative response from the longtime fans of the series here.
