I was just checking to see if I would be able to at least buy the abandoned map separately if I didn't preorder from Gamestop. In my search, what I found is that SOCOM 4 will be another CoD clone rather than a SOCOM game. If I want to play CoD, I will play CoD, not another crappy clone. I'm a bit disappointed, I really loved the old SOCOMs, but I will be skipping this one.
You guys are funny, have we ever seen a trailer that matched the actual game play? No we haven't. COD is so full of lag and glitching it isn't even fun to play but lets all rip on a game thats not even out yet. You fanboys stick to COD let the team players play a game that calls for teamwork. Don't get me wrong this game could suck b@lls but to start a "Dont buy Socom 4" FB page? and rip a game that doesn't even have a review yet?
Too late Socom. Call of Duty already has a stronghold on these type of games. I know Socom is team based. But who does team based games that are military. Call of Duty has Team Deatchmatch and it feels like Free for All.
This games action and character models remind me of Steven Segal. He's not exciting. His gun fights are as exciting as spitball fights. And his acting is as dead as the living Joan Rivers.
Well that looks meh. The voice acting is bad.
This is NOT Socom...where's the reliance on stealth and extreme difficulty in campaigns?
I'm not liking this at all...and SOCOM 2 was my all time favorite shooter.
Isn't the new Mortal Kombat out the same day? 0_0
I'm going to purchase it, SOCOM has always been pretty solid.
This looks like MAG which really disappointed me, also zipper made both games
way better games comingout then this, not even in my top ten must buy list
Look's very polished...
I'll keep it close in mind.
Where's the beta Zipper?
Game looks like it's going to be another BIG disappointment from the series.
Personaly I am stoked for this. hopefully they have redeemed themselves after Confrontation and all of the other mess ups.
Also, to all of those saying that it looks "robotic" in movement, this was put on by the developers and was staged, plus it still needs polish and that will come in the following months. And to all of my fellow Socom faithfull, stay strong; we can still stand strong and proud in the era of Call of Doodie
I hope this turns out to be a good game, I used to love to play SOCOM.
Too many shooters coming out that I want to even think about this game. I'll be waiting awhile to try this if at all.
this game does look like it will be as smooth as battlefield 3 or Homefront that are coming out and i think it will be killed on the market
