The game's single player campaign revolves around mission play and has players stepping into the boots of Ops Commander Cullen Gray as he commands four additional squad members, each with their own strengths and personality. The player can use this control over other characters to engage in everything from stealth actions involving classic, clean and quiet flanking maneuvers, to over-the-top firefights that rage with raw power. The choice resides with the player. Players also will utilize intelligence attained along the way, as well as special command functionality available in Command Mode to make decisions in the field.

OK, for the record, I miss the old SOCOM format...REALLY, I do! And for Zipper Interactive to release this game, the way it is, is just wrong!
And before you guys start bashing me, play it first, and then take a moment, step back, and ask yourself, "is this really SOCOM???"
I mean, why even make this game? There's a thousand run-n-gun type military games out there...Too many to list, actually. The original Socom format really had something different. There were NO GAMES like them! So, what does THIS GAME bring to the table, that the other shooters do not????? NOTHING!
I don't know where to start, and I'm just gonna be all over the place, as things make me angry....but, here goes:
This game is basically run, get shot at, run, get shot at, get shot at some more, and get shot at some more. If you think I'm kidding, try the game yourself!
The original SOCOM series was intense, strategic, organic, you could use a headset to use voice commands, use your teammates to help complete missions, use team mates to overwatch, command teammates to do all sorts of stuff...the original SOCOM games had SO MUCH to offer...this game????....NOTHING!!! All this cool stuff that the original SOCOM games had, is all GONE! Sure, OK, the graphics are awesome! OK? And sure, it's got a BUNCH of shooting in it...OK? but, so do a million other games out there, and graphics & shooting only goes so far. If you're looking for the old SOCOM here....well, you can forget it. The original magic of SOCOM, is forever gone.
In this game, you can forget about shooting bad guys at 300yds, and staying hidden for a while. OH NO, NOT IN THIS GAME!!!Read more ›
--GRAPHICS: EXCELLENT. Beautiful environments from hillsides of a South Asian country to a port with battleships or even jungle ruins and old WWII bunkers. Rich colors, good layout, great lighting. Really immerses the player into the game. Really great designs for enemy and ally characters.
--SOUND: EXCELLENT. The enemies shout at you or talk about you. They talk to each other in English or in a native language. The sound of the weapons in this game is prominent, each with its own unique sound; distinct, clear. Sometimes you can hear a sniper in the distance, other times you hear the enemies' footsteps in the mud approaching. Do yourself a favor and get headphones for this game, or good speakers because then you can really enjoy some environmental sounds. You can hear a subtle breeze, or the mosquitoes by your ear as you stealth through vegetation, or listen to the cry of elephants in a jungle canyon as you walk atop a hill towards a bombed out bridge, or crackling from the flames of a crashed airplane.
--MUSIC: EXCELLENT. The guy who did the score for this game, Bear McCreary, studied with the famous film composer Elmer Bernstein. And it shows. The music sounds almost like an old western movie like the Magnificent Seven, but then quickly embodies something of a superhero movie feel combined with a military campaign, similar to Nathan Drake's Uncharted theme.Read more ›
Well-balanced squad command mechanic Forty Five is a refreshingly authentic female soldier Enjoyable cooperative mode Soundtrack creates a sense of place and purpose Weapon improvements are persistent across every mode.
Stealth action has some hitches Intermittent network issues Occasionally wonky AI.
Though it has a long history of bringing tactical third-person shooter action to Sony systems, the SOCOM series' debut on the PlayStation 3 failed to fully capture the excitement of its predecessors. Yet while SOCOM: Confrontation disappointed, SOCOM 4 delivers. The substantial campaign makes good use of setting and characters to create an engaging tour of duty in which squad tactics play a nicely balanced role. The online cooperative mode lets up to five players band together for stand-alone missions that can offer a serious challenge and engender a good sense of camaraderie. Those looking for competition will find plenty to like in the online multiplayer, where up to 32 players compete on large, well-designed maps in a variety of game types, including tense variants with the classic SOCOM rules that disallow respawning in the middle of a match. Both single- and multiplayer do have some issues, including imperfect stealth action, visual oddities, and intermittent network problems. Fortunately, these limitations don't spoil the fun, and SOCOM 4 makes it exciting to experience what each mode has to offer.
UPDATE 06-02-11: See 'Multiplayer' notes below Singleplayer -PSN is finally running for me.
Let me start out by saying that I'm almost exclusively a First Person Shooter player and almost always on an Xbox. I've logged time on (and have beaten as well) BFBC2, CoD Black Ops, and Crysis 2; I also own and have beaten CoD Modern Warfare, MW2, Red Dead Redemption, etc...
I've just gotten into the PS3 scene to get the killer Blu-Ray player and try some of the exclusive titles on it. The SOCOM series is a PS exclusive. SOCOM4 is my first taste of a shooter on the PS3 and sadly, this game doesn't measure up, and that's too bad. Granted, it's a Third Person Shooter game on the PS3, but more than close enough to compare. Gears of War and RDR are both TPS and awesome.
Having carried a real gun for the 32 years of my entire adult life from 17 to 49 in the military and law enforcement, I wanted to experience something close to actually pointing a weapon in a video game and was excited to try the PS SharpShooter system based on its reviews.Read more ›
