Forums - Sony Discussion - SOCOM 4: Impressive New Gameplay Footage Emerged

Soo...no health regen and respawns are now considered casual?

Right. That would make Killzone 3 a childs toy.

So, what's the difference between this and the other hundred shooters out there?

Simple, it plays nothing like them.

That's pretty specific, thanks for the info.

It's a tactical, squad-based shooter. It requires you to lead teams in different directions and depends on a specific play style. If you really need to know, it takes two seconds to YouTube it and watch footage.

It's not anyone's job to spoon feed something simple to you.


I think you're confusing this with SOCOM's 1-3 :) --> Those games were acutally about stealth, tactics and controlling a team. This game looks like an average shooter that's made to be accessible to everyone which is proven by the inclusion of move controls. Its time for people to admit SOCOM sucks now and has gone casual, which is sad because SOCOM 2 was about as hardcore as a game got and I loved it. 

Watch the video I posted, nothing but stealth gameplay. Besides, how can you say a game sucks without playing it?

Because it's Chairman....

Socom is still Socom, but we learned something, having Move controls means casual... guess that Guerilla made KZ3 casual with their Move controls.... No seriously what kind of reasoning is that. Socom will still be Socom because Zipper is still Zipper, but you will never know that Socom hasn't changed that much, because I guess you're not going to buy it, and you were not planning on buying it no matter what.

OT: Arrhhh Socom, so many good memories, Fucken Day 1 purchase.

Its too hard to watch off screen footage, and yeah I'm just judging from the videos I've seen of on screen gameplay. Doesn't impress me at all. For one it's NATO not Navy SEALS, secondly its mostly lame urban environments and not cool areas like mountains, forests, etc. like in previous games. And I've yet to see any stealth (although I'll try and watch the whole video you posted)

Heh actually, now that Rico can heal you, the game indeed lost some of its difficulty it used to have in KZ2, but yea, if no respawn and no health regen means casual then what COD games mean? Rail shooter on god mode?

WTF? Dude you're serious?

And don't judge what's in a game when you only saw a 5min video, because they for sure will not show you all you will have in the game, for obvious reasons.

I was as big of a SOCOM fan as anyone back in the SOCOM 2 and 3 days and so far from what I've seen SOCOM 4 looks way different. Even ignoring the fact its no longer a US Navy SEAL team just look at the difference in environments from previous games to this one, its all urban in this one which isn't a lot of fun. And yeah move does make it somewhat casual as well. I guess just after waiting so long for another good SOCOM game (last good one was SOCOM 3) I have too high of expectations.

I don't know why people are still even calling this game socom us navy seals. I really don't fucking understand.


>He doesn't know about classic mode

Classic mode still isn't classic enough, where's my fucking lean and grenade arch? It's one thing to change SOME stuff of the last game but to completely change everything except the third person aspect it's not the same game anymore. This is a byoproduct of this dumbed down cod-clown generation. 2 primarys?

Edit. Doesn't mean the game will be bad or anything. It's just not socom.


Where did you hear that? All Ive heard is that it has the classic gameplay of SOCOM.

It would make sense to watch that vid, as like I said, it's entirely stealth-based. Moreover, the cut scenes are mo-capped/acted out (similar to Uncharted), so they make for immersive points in the game with good facial animation and lip-sync.

Last good Socom was Socom 2, that didn't stop me from enjoying S3, but it was miles away from S1/S2 quality. Nonetheless I trust Zipper because it's their franchise, they made it and it's still in their hands.
