    No glitches? Sadly, untrue. In fact, SOCOM 2 is a glitchfest, and a game marred by surprising oddities. Beyond the characters sliding across the floor sometimes like they're on skates, poking through scenery, and other horrors, how about the amazing way that if you leave a part of a game-map designated a specific mission-objective area and try and leave it too soon (like, before the No glitches? Sadly, untrue. In fact, SOCOM 2 is a glitchfest, and a game marred by surprising oddities. Beyond the characters sliding across the floor sometimes like they're on skates, poking through scenery, and other horrors, how about the amazing way that if you leave a part of a game-map designated a specific mission-objective area and try and leave it too soon (like, before the game-engine has registered you've actually COMPLETED that objective) you'll get a 'mission failed', for really going at a faster rate than the computer can keep up with you. Nonsensical. The AMAzon-jungle level is a ba***ard for this. And how about that terrorist in the shanty town who vomits THROUGH his face mask - clever. Disappointing, disappointing, disappointing. Forget online, no way will I let you use that as an excuse (online's great, single player is crap, but who cares?). I CARE. You jettison us non-onliners, and you'll find me in front of an XBox quicker than you can say 'Sony sucks'. Expand

    This game is cool, i love it ever since from Socom 1. socom 1 is fantastic. But erm.... Zipper have a lot of work to do for the lag and hit detection issues, its very very serious. My hit doesn't count and i always get killed when i should have put that person down with 4 to 5 shots. This is very irritating, i almost thought of giving up the game. Socom 1 do not have this problem. This game is cool, i love it ever since from Socom 1. socom 1 is fantastic. But erm....

    Give it a 6 or least, teams & player usually throw grenades so close that explosions catches them; player usually have to use silenced guns in all missions, and with 'em, enemies got down only after 4-5shoots; Hey! we don't need a rocket launcher, but give us more powerful guns!! We need to see Socom III soon.

    Having a "sneak peak" of this game, I am a little disappointed. Too much lag, servers crash, no fog glitches. i hope they get fixed.

    Singleplayer, SOCOM 2 offers about 15 – 20 hours of gameplay – however the hours online are endless.
  2. Completely overshadows its predecessor in every single way.
  3. And speaking of landscapes, the game's graphics are breathtaking, thicker foliage, clean sight lines and better camouflage for the characters. A beautiful looking game.
