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

Which means tactical gameplay.

Is this a tactical game ie: Not run n gun and constant respawns?

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

    nostradamus massive downgrades coming from the staples achieved w/ the Halo 3 sandbox/physics, with Dice/BField it should never be a trade-off, ony thing they should be trading its engine if it isnt up 3 the job (3 Days ago)

    nostradamus Halo keeps being this Sonic title bait & switch "will their next title be able to Look up par with its current gen counterparts"? Never. Even Halo 4 who was pretty good on Campaign suffered from (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus tech? I dunno, go get some insight of Activision (the good input, not the misogyny), all they COD devs make evident generation leaps tech-wise. Do they keep being the same core IP? I think so. (3 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus so Halo must be thet bottomb of the barrel FPS to keep its identity. Add some negligible subsurface scattering reflections or some other tech only possible now and call it the day copy/pasting the ol (3 Days ago)

    b0vril yea but, would it be halo then? (3 Days ago)

    nostradamus engines. I mean, If you can have a PS3 Ratchet & Clanck that looks like a vaseline ps3 game, and a PS5 Ratchet&Clack that looks like a goddamn next-gen game, why can't Halo Evolve - Ugly FPS Seal™ (4 Days ago)

    nostradamus Halo Infinite sure is one ugly damn game. Pretty obvious nothing is going to massible change if the Ip doesn't die and start from the ground up with another publisher/dev that doesn't retread the ol (4 Days ago)
