  • Summary: SOCOM: Confrontation caused quite a stir due to its mixed reviews. Many praised the potential it had, but lamented its notorious network problems and glitches. Now that series creator Zipper Interactive is back in the driving seat, SOCOM has a chance at some crucial redemption. So ... what's the excuse for the exact same issues plaguing this one?

Violent, bloody shooter glamorizes elite soldier's job.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs is a third-person shooter that depicts war zone violence in semi-realistic fashion. Players spend their time using a large arsenal of weapons to kill countless enemy soldiers, who writhe, bleed, and cry out in pain when struck. The player’s squad is clearly on the side of good, but everything they do in the game centers around violence.

SOCOM 4: Special Forces – For Multiplayer Junkies Only

7 June 2011
  • Excerpt: SOCOM 4 would have been a cool game – had it released five years ago. Today it’s nothing but a generic tactical shooter that’s a bit technically underwhelming. It’s not that there’s anything fundamentally wrong with the game; it’s just that gamers today are pampered by so much variety, SOCOM 4 feels kind of redundant. Now, SOCOM games generally don’t have a single player campaign to speak of so the one present in Special Forces is kind of an added bonus.

SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs (PS3) - Review

18 May 2011
  • Excerpt: There’s no denying that shooters are the most popular genre in modern gaming.  Seems like every other week we get another shooter releasing on the HD consoles.  That makes for a ton of competition and if any single shooter wants to stand out they really have to do something new and different.  Does SOCOM IV succeed at this or is it just another face in a crowd of shooters?

Review: SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs

New Gamer Nation
30 April 2011
  • Conclusion: All in all, SOCOM 4 is a good game and will provide you with plenty of challenge for your $60 dollars.  There are a number of limitations that keep the score down but it’s definitely worth a rental just to see if this shooter is more your speed.  You should know that this is vastly different than most shooters and it really relies on you being tactical in your approach.  If you are a run-and-gunner then this game is not for you.
