i don't know, i'm kinda fed up with marines. maybe this game is much more innovative than it looks but the whole design looks bland to me.

It's SOCOM.
It's Zipper Interactive.
I'm sold.

They aren't Marines. It has two SEAL members and two members from South Korea's Special Ops.

Which means tactical gameplay.

i expect better graphics from a PS3 exclusive blu ray game, i mean GRAW in 2006 looks pretty much the same

Is this a tactical game ie: Not run n gun and constant respawns?
Commented on 2011-02-26 04:24:10
This game looks amazing, does anyone know if it's using Uncharted's graphics engine?

If this is anything like previous SOCOM games, you will be able to issue some commands to squad members.

So yes it is more tactical than most games.

Doesn't look good. This should be much better graphical wise for an exclusive. I think with better contrasting colors, it would look a bit better. Now it all looks washed out. Animations are meh.
Final verdict in the closed beta next month.

I've never played a Socom game before and was thinking about giving this a try, but it's really hard to get excited with such a bland trailer...

Everything looks totally generic and like someone else said it looks like GRAW from 2006...

I'm not convinced.....

i was thinking the same , plus in that stealth trailer they forgot to add scream sounds when you stab them with the knife , making it look uncanny

I liked the stealth trailer, looks cheesy but fun. I will check it out for a low price ;)
Commented on 2011-02-26 16:01:02
Game actually looks quite a bit better than I expected. Not sure if I would pay full price for it, but I will definitely rent it or pick it up down the road.

The one thing I don't like is how they have "stealth levels" and "action levels". For once I would love a tactical shooter to just have an open environment and let ME decide how I want to approach it. Instead, we get linear levels that are designed, scripted, and hand placed to be approached with one style or the other, and you fail if you try anything different. Oh well, maybe next gen....

it's no killzone 3, but it looks a damn sight better then the original 3 socom games did on the PS2, even for the time they looked awful.

while killzone 3 has shown us how a shooter works great with MOVE, i think it'll be this that really sells it. shitty, modern warfare setting, just like practically every FPS released this gen, but at least it's 3rd person and squad based. makes it a little bit different....kinda

it's a multiplayer game tho imo. always has been, always will be. that's the bit i'm looking forward to.

KORNdog, I thought you were tired of modern "warfare" games, or am I misstaking? no personal attack, just a question :)

reading... it helps.

But TPS or FPS, its just a camera view, its still the same setting and style, modern war game. But now, you can see your character in movement LOL (which I like in all shooters btw).

Ah well, good to know.
Commented on 2011-02-26 18:44:18 In reply to Sath
For some reason, the change in camera view makes a huge difference for me, it's much easier to identify with your character if you can actually see them and the change in gameplay feel should also be quite significant if the third person mechanics are well programmed.

To my surprise I am actually relatively interested in this game, never played the GRAW titles or previous SOCOM so TPS contemporary warzone will actually be a fresh experience.
Commented on 2011-02-26 19:03:28
I agree, but the reason why I like third person is because I want to see the character model i am using.
But first person has that more personal feeling that its "you" who are there rather than a designed controller.

Games like Crysis, Halo (master chief to be more specific) the ones with no face, those are the ones I am talking about that it gives the feeling you have to imagine yourself in the game.

But anyways, I like TPS more than FPS.

And I do agree, TPS for Socom and even GRAW was very nice, gives a different style.
But for me, settings like modern and realistic, no matter what, I cant like it, just bores me hehe.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (4 Hours ago)
