Anyone else download and play the Socom 4 Beta?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone else, whether it be through Killzone 3 or the PS Plus membership, downloaded the Socom 4 beta.

I downloaded it the first night and hopped online with a couple of friends who I met online when I was 13 playing Socom 2. But I also had the original Socom but never hopped online.

I'd want to hear peoples opinion on it as far as the beta is concerned. Whether you're a Socom Veteran like myself or just tried it out for the fun of it.

In my honest opinion; I really hope the full game is different then the beta. It's just not Socom. It's Socom with Call of Duty thrown in. Sure, Zipper has stated that they "want to take the game in a whole new direction", but I just don't understand why game developers make a massive hit series of games, get a HUGE following, then switch the script up. New game modes, new maps, new vehicles, new guns - those are all fine! But keep the fundamentals!

All in all I'm disappointed. Really hope they change a few things in the full game or else I won't be picking this up. And I never thought I'd say that about any Socom game

What are your guys' thoughts on the beta? Good game in your opinion or what?

I played the Beta & to be honest I really liked all the changes. They took a new approach with it but like I said I feel that the new changes are good ones. Day 1 purchase for me & my friends

It's sickening how disgusting this game is. And I'm happy to say that on the beta forums the veteran community is letting them know. This looks like Socom and that's it. No feel of any Socom in the past is in this game. I'm not gonna touch this game.

Downloaded it and played it once. Not my cup of tea.

As odd as it may seem, I like multi-player games players could revive other players (I loved SOCOM Fire Team Bravo on the PSP because you could revive other players).

I don't think SOCOM 4 is a bad game (think its pretty good actually) its just not what I want in a multi-player game.

Feel bad because I bugged some guy to give me his beta code and after that I only played it once .

EDIT: btw, I still have a SOCOM 4 beta code from buying Killzone 3. If anybody wants a SOCOM 4 beta code (from KZ3) paypal me $5.

J/k, just send me a PM. I don't visit OCN.net as often anymore but I will try to visit a few times until the end of the weekend.

Also, keep in mind you won't be able to download the SOCOM 4 beta until March 29th. SOCOM 4 has a rolling beta schedule going on (see here).

If it's not your cup of tea, then it's not your cup of tea haha! And I believe with the whole new system that you can revive players. Oh, look, another CoD additive to my Socom game... lol

Is it at least better than Socom Confrontation?

I'm surprised they didn't let the KZ3 players in at the same time, or even before, the PS Plus members.

To me; Hell no. Confrontation at least has the feel of old Socoms in it. Socom 4 has nothing. I honestly hope you're a veteran so you can play and testify with me what kind of game franchise has truly been destroyed the spit on by it's own creators.

Yeah, I am a Veteran; I played Socom I and II; and yes.. its sad to say the franchise has been destroyed

I guess i'm not missing out on much, since my PS3 is still YLOD'd

I am interested in that beta code if you have not given it away already. I am a socom veteran since socom 1!
