Summary: Very unrealistic missions. You can, somehow, be laying 3 feet in front of someone and they wont see you, but other times will see you in the dark when you're hiding in a bush. Missions are long and drawn out and there are too many SOLO missions. I thought SEALs were about teamwork.........
Summary: I actually enjoyed playing this game. It`s everything you expect on a 3rd person shooter nowadays but it doesn`t have much replay value. You just finish the game then go nuts on the Multiplayer which has been losing a lot of ground since. There`s a lot of negative views about the story but I find it to my liking and some NPCs are a pain in the ass but they do what they`re supposed to.
Too short of a story mode, as well as other things

Summary: SOCOM 4 is just an OK game. The story mode on SOCOM 4 is very short, in my opinion. I finally started playing the game about 2 days ago after purchasing it a couple of months ago -- and no more than playing probably 3 hours each day -- and I'm already finished. The game has only 14 campaign missions, which is an utter upset, to me.
Summary: As with most games, I generally play thought single player before I encounter the multiplayer aspects, as a meants of getting used to the game so I'm not totally new to the environment. However, with this game, while I had some entertainment playing the campaign offline, multiplayer ended up being a significantly different experience. Being dropped in with random players and continuously abused in multiple ways tends to run as the norm.
Summary: I played SOCOM 3 a lot. So when I got my PS3 I was really looking forward to this.It is just nowhere near as fun to me. Everything feels like it could have used more polish. I tried the online, and found it boring. People constantly try kicking you even if your doing good. The overall package just lacks what it needs to be successful as a top tier game. Good for a rent, not much more.
Summary: Sadly SOCOM has been hit by the modern gamer junk! If you whant a game thats called SOCOM but is actully a SOCOM game, this is not it! Heck half the team in the story game isn't even the U.S. Navy Seals. Its nothing like SOCOM 1-3. If you whant a SOCOM game get the first 3, or get Confrontation. Its still an ok game and is good, but i was sad of how much its changed.
Summary: i played prior socom games and this doesnt compare. its not good. its fun at first, untill your team stops helping you and only gets you detected and they wont kill anyone. the game feels cheap and its not a good buy. i love TPS more than any other type of shooter but this game isnt good. there are other games much better.
Summary: I bought this product bc i loved the old PS2 games, but then i switched over to xbox and 360 and i got a PS3 mainly for this game. it is fun but not like the old ones at all. Zipper went in and changed way to much. I get more of an older Socom feel from my PSP games?
Summary: SOCOM 4, like any new game in a series that has a near-and-dear fan base, is going to rub some people the wrong way. But it's really not a bad shooter; its biggest issue is going to be whether there's a there, to quote Gertrude Stein. Can it attract new fans without alienating the old ones, and still have something interesting to contribute to the genre? My sense is that it can't and that it doesn't, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth checking out.
