  1. Like a sniper taking aim from out of nowhere, SOCOM: Tactical Strike sets sights on PSP and emerges as one of the year's best. Phenomenal visuals, tight tactical gameplay, and unparalleled multiplayer make this a must-have title.
  2. Cold, brutal, clinical...the real face of modern warfare. [Christmas 2007, p.110]
  3. It's a tactical treat and a rather more accessible experience than previous games. [Christmas 2007, p.82]
  4. A good addition to the series, albeit one that needs some special consideration. It's the black sheep of the SOCOM family and is in need of some refinement. It's close to greatness, but close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.
  5. Think what you will about SOCOM's change from a straight shooter to a tactical shooter on the PSP, but Tactical Strike manages the transition quite nicely.
  6. A finely-poised slice of real-time tactical action. Tactical Strike won’t pry you away from the likes of Company of Heroes, and series purists may lament the loss of direct control, but it stands foremost of its genre in the handheld arena.

    SOCOM: US Navy SEALs Tactical Strike is tactically unsound and just not very fun to play overall.

    I have absolutely no clue whe the reviewers listed so far dislikes the game (5.0-7.5 range). I like it a lot more than the syphon filter demo. Besides the reviews not listed here scores the game between 8 and 9.5. I will definately buy this game when it is released in Europe.

    A very nice package for us older gamers. It's still real time, but no twitchy aiming - you just give order to your team. Great game. The A very nice package for us older gamers.
