Excerpt: SOCOM has a large fan base on PlayStation 2 and a lot of people were looking forward to a version of the game on the PlayStation 3. SOCOM: Confrontation is the first SOCOM on the PS3, but many people were already disappointed in the beta.

Graphics: Uneven, ranging from good (environments) to awful (character faces)
Sound: Fantastic all around.
