SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs (PS3, 2011)

Overview


Squad up!Playing shooters can be a mixed blessing, sometimes. Both first and third person based shooters share certain elements, and the overall structure from one game to the next is usually fairly similar. Some people call that repetitive and boring. For myself, I’m usually more concerned with the level design, game balance and playability than I am with structural similarities. Two games can be similar but feel and play completely differently with a little work on the part of the developer. One way in particular to make a shooter feel different is to add a tactical element to the game play, so that rather than just dealing with your own character, you can also direct and position allied forces in order to create crossfires, ambushes and in general just even the odds a bit. SOCOM 4 is an example of one such tactical shooter, and is the game I’m taking a look at today.

Call of Duty 4 Review

What? Two reviews on the same day? I might actually clear out my backlog sometime this decade at this rate. As long as I'm reviewing FPS games, I decided that it's time to take a look at Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, in my case the PC edition. Hope you're ready to hump it folks, because the bullets are flying and the mud's neck deep. Take a look at the review to see what I thought.
