It's time to defend life, liberty and democracy as only American Special Forces can. Yup, it's SOCOM's swansong on the PS2 in the form of U.S. Navy SEALs Combined Assault. Huaaargh!
Sony's poster boy for online PS2 play is back for one last hurrah in the name of American foreign policy. Players can take on the enemies of freedom with an all new four player co-op mode with all the communication features, ladders and rankings you've come to expect from the SOCOM series. If you're feeling a bit meaner, you can always mix it up in 32 player competitive online mode with full community support, including a friends list, chat functionality, and expanded stats tracking.
Zipper Interactive has beefed things up a bit for this latest instalment in the series. Enemy AI has been improved to make the baddies more tactical, intelligent and deadly. Similarly, vehicle movement has been updated for more realistic (and dangerous) decision making.
Don't think its going to be as straightforward as ploughing in, guns blazing to save the day, however. Sure, that might work sometimes, but Combined Assault has been specially designed to encourage players to decide whether best to approach a mission stealthily or with rampant firepower.
Also, as an added incentive, Sony's throwing in its SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy SEALs multiplayer online game with all the maps, patches and updates included.
Really great game for the ps2, graphics are awesome for the ps2 especially the cutscenes.
Storyline is interesting and campaign is innovative, although you fight in one country all
the time, the variety of terrain and weather is really good. Because of the terrain, weather,
and time you have to adjust your weapons to suit the conditions, this is where socom is made
better then other games. You also get to unlock weapons and instant action will keep you
busy for the time being. Overall a game deserving platinum recognition.
