Worth The Money At This Price, Could Use Some New Maps

Summary: I guess I was lucky in a sense, I came into this game just recently, having played the original SOCOM in beta, it was one of the games I missed most when I bought the xbox 360. The xbox died for the fourth and final time so I decided to snag a new ps3 slim!
Summary: So, I've owned SOCOM Confrontation since "day 1". I pre-ordered it with the headset, played the beta, and received it in the mail within the first few days of launch. When the game launched, it was nearly unplayable. It was awful and didn't work well at all.
Summary: I have held off reviewing this version of SOCOM because it was released before it should have been. Those of us that were playing the pre-release beta could not believe that Slant 6/Sony were going to release this buggy, laggy game that you could not stay connected to.
Summary: First things first. The CONS: There's no actual game. You just play against other players on a handful of online maps. It takes some trial and error to understand how to play well and find the kind of rooms you like.
Summary: I just purchased this game a few days ago even though I heard it still had a lot of issues. It will take up quite a bit of space on your hard drive, roughly 3 gbs, luckly I have a 250gb hdd. First off I didn't notice any lag at all, and I couldn't find any issues with this game at all.
Summary: I've been playing all the Socom's since Socom 2 & although the maps keep getting better they just aren't getting the rest quite right. In Confrontation you only get 7 maps. 4 are new but 3 of them (Crossroads, Desert Glory & Frostfire) are just updated maps from the past.
Summary: this is still my fave ps3 game, I bought this game on the relese day and have played it more (and still do) than any other online game to date. pros: 8 game modes: inc cold front map pack, 7 without. 12 maps: inc cold front, 7 without. Great gameplay. Great controlls.
