US_ARMY’s Impressions of the SOCOM Beta

After much anticipation and a short delay, the SOCOM Confrontation beta officially launched last friday. The servers were bogged down with all the PS3 owners ready to get their first taste of the Nex-Gen SOCOM. The download moved quite slowly but we didnt care, as long as we got our game we love.

The game itself (when working that is) is suprisingly well done. From the vast customization to the great voice communication, the game ranks up with some of the best. We all got angry numerous times at the game as it will take forever to load, boot you off the servers, and not start the game until everyone “Greens up”. This is a sacrifice that we all must understand, as this is a BETA. They do this for a reason so these problems can be resolved for the final product. Aside from the issues, the game itself is solid. It has the classic SOCOM feel with a Nex-Gen spin on it. I love this new game to death and can tell that it will do well for the SOCOM community.

We will all be counting down the days to the final product, and to finally try out the new bluetooth headset from sony. I will have a full review of the game and the headset when they release this october. See everyone in the beta in the mean time.

    SOCOM IS TO ME BETTER THAN COD4. IN MANY WAYS BUT, SOME ISUES NEED TO BE FIXED…

    RESPAWNS NEED TO BE A LIL CLOSER TO THE ACTION, I WALK FOR AT LEAST 30 SECS TO GET TO SOME ACTION.

    THERE SHOULD BE A 2 MIN WAIT PERIOD TO START THE GAME INSTEAD OF WAITING FOR EVERY ONE TO “GREEN UP” THERE’S ALWAYS THE IDIOT THAT DONT KNOW WHERE THE START BUTTON IS.

    U SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE YOUR NIGHT VISION ON WHILE YOU RUN

    U SHOULD BE ABLE TO STAY IN SCOPE SITE WHILE YOU USE RAPID FIRE.

    I REALLY DONT MIND THE LAG OR LOADING FOR EVER TIME.. I UNDERSTAND ITS A BETA.

    OTHER THAN THAT ITS A GREAT GAME. IM SICK OF COD4 WHERE ALL YOU DO IS RUN AROUND LIKE A HEAD LESS CHICKEN SHOOTING DUDES. IN SOCOM IF YOU DONT TAKE COVER. YOUR COLD TURKEY. AT LEAST IF IM THE ONE BEHIND THE GUN..

    PSN ID MAXVTEC. HIT ME UP AND SHOW THIS DUDES HOW WE DO IT.

    i watched some HD vids on this game looks good gameplay wise, but graphicaly it looks like rainbow six vegas 2, and as for rsv2 home looks like it also.
