Worth getting if you have a Sharpshooter

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: 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.
Summary: Lets be honest, socom will never have the same grip on you that socom 1 and 2 did when the online community was still getting by on network adapters. That being said, this was the most solid attempt since socom 2 (socom 3 failed and confrontation was miserable). It wont bring back that nostalgic feeling of sitting in a lobby with clan members waiting for the next socombattles war so you can climb the ranks in 1 week because you and a buddy put together a secret...
Summary: Good game overall. The only thing that bugged me was that there were no night vision goggles available on the game. You have to turn the brightness setting up all the way up to get around without bumping into stuff and to complete the mission. Besides that, it's a great game. I'm a big fan of the whole SOCOM/SEALS games.
Summary: It isn't among the best games that I own, but I bought it cheap and it was an entertaining play through. Things have changed since the first few SOCOM games, but some good things were added so that it wasn't like play one of the early SOCOM games with a new wrapper.
Summary: the game needs to update its ranking system, the players rank up but never down. majority of the game players are already ranked level 100. being ranked 29 puts me in matches mostly with level 100 players. if this game had a more in depth ranking system unlike most xboxlive-style of ranking where everyone wins, it would be more competitive. i really miss the old style of selecting a level, and respawn or regular and people would come find your room to play.
