Possibly the best PS2 game in the world to date!!!!
I wasn't much of a Socom fan when the first game was released, my friends kept on saying how it was an amazing game and that i should get it. Eventually i got round to purchasing my copy of Socom 1, i was quite surprised as to the effectiveness of the headset that gave you the ability to command your three other squad mates around and the general feel of the game. But the story mode only went so far and i would have rated the game about a 7/10, then i got it online. Long story short i loved it to death, and when Socom 2 came out i was on my hands and knees thanking the lord for a sequel.
Socom 2 online is amazing without online it scores around about 7-8/10, but with online it could score 10. Sadly the developers rushed the European version and the game falls in so many areas such as the tremendous amount of lag that rarely happened in the first game, and the terrorist weapons really are crap when compared to the seals. Still this game is amazing and with the added fact of unlocking Russian Spetznaz operatives and British SAS special forces *YAY!* this game will consume you and generally hook you after your first five minutes of play. A word of warning though! If you plan to get online don't feel to bad if you repeatedly get your arse completely thrashed for the first couple of months or so, people who play online play from 3 to 10 hours a day! I have been playing the Socom games online now for 8 months for at least 2 hours a day when i can, and i still get caned!!!!!
Socom 1 = 7/10, Socom 2 = 9/10, Socom 3 = I can't wait to find out!!!
