I dont know about this one, I mean its ok but I find its just getting too unrealistic. Like arcade like nonsense. I'll wait for some other reviews first.

Defeatest, I agree that the main firefight (protecting the tank) in the demo was a bit..much. The way the terrorists were literally throwing themselves at you.


The full game so far seems to be enjoyable.
Not long after you do the initial tutorial / shooting / target practice sequence, you get to run an obstacle course.


He tells you that their fastest is by "GAZ" at 19seconds
The screen lists IW's (the developers)fastest time, at 15.1seconds.

You can beat it though. The obstacle course is repeatable. After plenty of tries, you'll see where you need to be quicker exactly to improve your time(s). And the first targets you shoot will determine whether you are going to beat the 15.1 second record. If you know you won't, and want to start again, just chuck all your flash bangs and it restarts the obstacle course.


But, there's no reward for beating 15.1.
My best time is 14.85

I am glad to say though that the first mission, is reminiscent of the first mission of the original SOCOM game, if anyone remembers that, you'll see what I mean. It's a nice change of pace from the games that all start out in some middle-eastern setting. It gets pretty wild near the tail end of it, and pay close attention to the message on the screen, if you fail to make the jump into the helicopter. Hehe.

Well my g/f got me the game, and I gotta say it's a blast! I have yet to play the SP part of the game, a few of my friends also got the game so it's been a bunch of intense MP-ing! I gotta say it's a blast and even though the mp version of the game limits some of the graphics settings, it ran great on my setup. I enjoy the fast paced action in comparison to something like bf2142, granted I still like bf2142. A few things though, they need to fix the random spawning, sometimes you spawn in a group of 4+ enemies and have no chance. Another issue I have is that there is no team list/buddy list of any kind, I sure hope that is implemented. Even so, right now the servers are plentiful, decent ping, and just a blast!

Just for the MP portion, I'm glad my g/f got it for me, and I would've got it for myself knowing now what I do know. There's all sorts of awards, challenges, you gain rank and xp, you can customize weapons to an extent, you can customize builds, etc. Great fun.
