  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. 80
    Amazingly polished for such a dramatic change in design philosophy, and the fun you'll have playing it more than makes up for its troublesome camera, tepid multiplayer, and absence of actual bloodshed.
  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. 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.
  6. 70
    Although the A.I. can be stupid, the overall control interface is slick and setting up strategic attacks can be totally rad.
  7. 40
    SOCOM: US Navy SEALs Tactical Strike is tactically unsound and just not very fun to play overall.

    This comment is based on my demo impressions.

    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. Expand

    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 multiplayer is a bit deserted and the few matches I tried were over a bit too quickly. Collapse
