It’s no big secret Socom 4 was a fail. Just a quick glance of the official message boards and you will see a whole lot of negativity. Also some of you, who follow industry news may remember the recent downsizing of the company after the release of Socom 4. Zipper Interactive announced a new title today for the PlayStation Vita titled “Unit 13″.
The latest SOCOM 4 patch is now live. The team is saying 42MB, but it loads up at 42, and then when you go online… Be prepared for a 4 part download with parts as big as 320MB! It appears they are still working on the weapon knock to prevent rapid fire hacks, which is a good thing.
First of all, I’d like to make an apology to Zipper Interactive & SONY for taking longer than expected on this review. A few reasons for that, but the majority of the time was spent waiting for PSN to come back up as I was looking to give the multiplayer a test drive.
Now, before I go ahead to give you an overview of the game, I’d just like to clarify that this review is purely based on the single player campaign. As briefly mentioned above, before I got around to give the multiplayer a chance, PSN was taken offline. Hopefully, once PSN is up and running, I’ll be able to give the multiplayer a whirl and give you my thoughts on that too.
So, where were we? Ahh…yes. I decided to play the single player campaign on normal mode. The introductory video certainly kept me glued to the screen, but once the game got started I wasn’t quite sure about the initial impression the game was giving me.
Looks like Sony finally gave us the SOCOM 4 ad featuring Kevin Butler. His attire obviously shows Kevin Butler is in it for the long haul. The game goes on sale April 19th in the states. Who will be picking this up?
Zipper Interactive’s Seth Luisi stopped by the Sony Blog and tells us about the new mode “Bomb Squad” in the video below.
If this is as fun as Uplink is then Zipper has one heck of a game. Im extremely happy with the Beta thus far and this only furthers my excitement for it.
