This game really kept me playing as there are plenty of things to do once you complete the campaign missions. There is: 'Instant Action' where you can do simple missions like hostage extract, sabotage and kill all the enemy. This is probably the best feature: The ability to play online is greate fun.
Overall: A great game, a must buy for all those who like third person shooter games
Socom is an amazing game for handheld lovers, it works so well and is great fun to play. There are 14 missons which take you round 4 countries is a sort of story. There is an action mode too- which lets you use missons already unlocked but allows you to play on the levels and try out different challenges like a deathmatch and hostage games. You also get a Microphone with the set, which unfortunately cant be used on the missons to control your teammate, but is used online on Infrastructure. This is where the strength is, onlien you play other people in the country, join clans and share tactics with the help of the microphone. Anyone who wants to have the meat of the online mode, get this game, but the story mode is too short and very repetitive.
This game is a very good example of the capability of the psp. The online gaming is fantastic and very good fun. Battle against people from all over the world in this action packed game, and with the headset it is even better. You can talk to your below team mates, giving or taking commands making the game so much more realistic. The single player game is also very good with a range of different weapons to choose from. However, i can't help feel that the game could do with a few more levels as the story mode becomes quick to complete once you have got the hang of it. If you have a wireless router in your house, this game is essential. Buy it.
