Excerpt: Many people are convinced that SOCOM is a multiplayer-only game, but after a long time of thoroughly checking out the single player part I have to conclude that this game has more to it than one might think… way more… You take on the role of a commander who’s head of a 4-people seal team.
Excerpt: Welcome to the last two weeks of my life. Before you even begin to consider stepping into SOCOM: U.S. Navy Seals , know that it is easily one of the most addictive games available for the PS2.
Excerpt: In SOCOM: US Navy Seals , you play as Kahuna, a member of a four-man Seal team. With your teammates, Boomer, Jester and Specter, you are sent on a series of missions to deal with terrorist factions.
Pros: Great stealth/team experience, Online gameplay, Audio portion is well done
Cons: Graphics have some rough spots, AI inconsistent
Excerpt: I'm not really sure what all of the fuss about SOCOM is, but I did manage to have somewhat of a good time. The first thing I noticed was how crappy the graphics were and that there was a slight choppiness issue.
Conclusion: The graphics of SOCOM are some of the best yet seen on the system. The frame rate, offline, rarely stutters—only during the busiest of firefights and never to the point of distraction. The lighting and particle effects, as we have come to expect from the PS2 are first rate.
