half a game

Summary: Let me first say that I did not play the previous SOCOM games extensively. Because of the price of this edition, I felt like it was worth a shot. Problem is, you can no longer engage multiplayer online so it really feels like half a game. The single game campaign is alright for the price. Don't expect an epic saga but again, for this title, there is some fun to be had.
Summary: The title should have socom in it. Simply because it is not socom. Game is trash. Zipper interactive is not a company anymore. Sony ruined the socom series by giving developers little money and time. To make these once great games. Do not buy this game........you will be so disappointed.
Summary: I've never played a SOCOM game before, so I can't compare it to earlier SOCOM games. I also don't play online - my comments are just about the single player campaign, and more specifically, playing this game with the Move/Sharpshooter. After being frustrated by several 'Sharpshooter compatible' games for PS3 that really seemed to treat the Move as an afterthought, I saw this game for cheap and decided to dust off my Sharpshooter and give it one last try.
Summary: PS3 Move bundle: If you don't have the PS3 Move yet, this is a great deal. This is also the ONLY PS3 Move gun peripheral worth buying. Trust me, I tried many of them. It takes some getting used-to, but didn't analog sticks the first time you picked up a PS2 or Xbox controller? Once you get used to the Sharpshooter, it's like second nature. It also feels better holding it and pulling the trigger than any analog controller. It also seems more accurate.
Summary: Got this for a discounted price where I was literally getting the game for free. Well worth the money at the time of purchase but I wouldn't recommend it anymore. SOCOM 4 was better than Confrontation (until they fixed it) but it was nothing what real SOCOM fans wanted.. Also the servers for both games have been shut down and are completely useless now.
Summary: The bundle was great, for the price it was the best way to get the move, the camera and the gun. The game on the other hand is just ok so that brings my rating down one star. I've enjoyed playing with the move a lot though.
