Very good game. Knocked by many PS2 SOCOM fans for straying from its roots, but enjoyed by anyone else

I wonder if Sony will continue development on the socom franchise , after the sales of this and to a lesser extent confrontation. Wouldn't mind seeing one on the vita . On a brighter note I think MAG2 would be outstanding on ps4.

This game is great the graphics are killer. If you can get use to the 3rd person element this game rocks. I think that's why people who say they don't like are thinking it's a cod game. ITS NOT! It's a tactical shooter.

Just played through the Sp, and i thought it was great. I enjoyed the gameplay and story a lot. And the graphics are really good. I never played the other Socom games so I don't really know what all the hate is about. Fun, well-made, challenging game.

@ylowbstard: The game is great, and also hard (last missions). How the story develops needs some work; but the gameplay is amazing. I havent played socom games before, so I dont know how was the story in previous games in order to compare.

So, to those who have played it, what's your honest opinion of the Single-Player campaign? I loved Socom (despite the ridiculous difficulty spikes), Socom 3, and especially the brilliant Socom 2, but Confrontation really crushed my admiration of the series. I'm not that intersted in MP, but If the SP is worth it, I'll pick this game up!

The only reason these sales numbers are low is because of the PSN shutdown.3 games have suffered sales do to the PSN shutdown.Motorstorm apocalypse,Socom 4 both released at or before the shutdown.Resistance 3 couldnt get the tester's online those 2 months.All 3 games ROCK! Hopefully this holiday season sales will pick up.

It's not going to come anywhere close to 1 million. It's selling less than 4k a week now (at its current rate it would take like 4 more years to reach 1 million). No one is playing it anymore, and there are enough used copies out there now that people aren't going to buy the game new. It's a bad game that got deservingly bad reviews. Its multiplayer has bad game modes, horribly cluttered maps, ridiculous bullet spray and a broken party system. And worst of all, the game isn't being supported very well because so many of the original team (including the lead dev) have gone. The game is a joke.

I've tried to keep quiet, but I just can't hold it in any longer. I have to tell everyone that Vekta's claims are pure tripe. I will start this discussion by arguing that we have a number of problems for which Vekta bears most of the responsibility. Then, I will present evidence that Vekta's grand plan is to further political and social goals wholly or in part through activities that involve force or violence and a violation of criminal law. I'm sure Mao Tse Tung would approve. In any case, Vekta says that he is the arbiter of all things. That's his unvarying story, and it's a lie: an extremely uppity and poxy lie. Unfortunately, it's a lie that is accepted unquestioningly, uncritically, by Vekta's habitu├ęs. There have been reports of rampant drunkenness, performances by strippers, public nudity, and other licentious and hotheaded behavior at every gathering of Vekta's minions. And that's why I say to you: Have courage. Be honest. And inculcate in the reader an inquisitive spirit and a skepticism about beliefs that Vekta's spokesmen take for granted. That's the patriotic thing to do, and that's the right thing to do.

@Homer I hope you enjoyed this socom game, because Sony is ditching the title after this game. Socom has hit the chopping block. MGS 5mill, GOW 3Mill, Uncharted 2 4mill, Socom 4 0.39k LMAO! Who ever called this legs is blind. These are like worm legs. Its walking alright. Closer to half a mill every week. It will hit 1mill by 4th of July maybe. That is being generous. At some point it will stop though. Sales will pick up by christmas when this game hits the budget bin.

I love this game. Wish it was doing better. It is a refreshing change from all the FPSs out there. Multiplayer feels perfect. Singleplayer is solid, good, fun, but not great...like Uncharted. Multiplayer is where it is at though. I almost feel like the inclusion of a singleplayer story mode is why the reviewers scores are low and th4e game would have been better off with multiplayer only, which brings nme back to the memories of SOCOM 1 multiplayer.

Sure the Socom name is on the title, but it aint the original crew specter, jester, joker its some fruity team from around the world. No disrespect but if they wanted to go around the world I could have played as the Gurkas from Britain or something, but not this. This is game shold have been called Call of Uncharted Socom 2. Confrontation and Combined assult are much better Socom games than this.

Very good game. Knocked by many PS2 SOCOM fans for straying from its roots, but enjoyed by anyone else

I wonder if Sony will continue development on the socom franchise , after the sales of this and to a lesser extent confrontation. Wouldn't mind seeing one on the vita . On a brighter note I think MAG2 would be outstanding on ps4.

This game is great the graphics are killer. If you can get use to the 3rd person element this game rocks. I think that's why people who say they don't like are thinking it's a cod game. ITS NOT! It's a tactical shooter.

bad everything and the story was so generic, worse than a COD story. Sad cuz i was so pumped for this game after the other socom games and after MAG

Just played through the Sp, and i thought it was great. I enjoyed the gameplay and story a lot. And the graphics are really good. I never played the other Socom games so I don't really know what all the hate is about. Fun, well-made, challenging game.
