Your mission is to step into the well-worn boots of the Ops Com, a NATO Operations Commander of an elite, five-man squad.

Although you're vastly outnumbered, you're armed with the latest weaponry and your men are second to none - but do you possess the stealth, speed and tactical thinking to lead them to victory? Time is not on your side: you have just six days to complete your mission. To emerge victorious, you must lead from the front, maintain control of the situation and fight with sheer intensity.

Summary

SOCOM 4 adds another heavy hitter to the PlayStation 3's illustrious software line-up with its addictive missions and killer co-op gameplay. If Zipper Interactive can iron out the various competitive multiplayer bugs, SOCOM 4 could rank among the best 2011 has to offer.

We like

  • Online co-op is a blast
  • Open design to fit multiple play styles
  • Terrific graphics and soundtrack

We dislike

  • Competitive multiplayer bugs and lag
  • Balancing issues in multiplayer
  • Lackluster narrative
