- SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 2 demo (free) (290MB)
After reading Andrew gush over SOCOM: Tactical Strike like a schoolgirl with her first crush, it's hard not to be intrigued at Sony's upcoming tactical shooter. To add to that excitement are these new gameplay videos, which, not only feature the game's impressive squad-based gameplay, but also its multi-language voice acting for our international friends out there. Pretty cool stuff.
Yes, the video you're seeing above is running on a PSP. Not a PS2. Not a Wii. But a PSP. The dense foliage, the beautiful rays of light shimmering down to the ground, the individual blades of grass ... this is all real, and all on the handheld. Look at the fog in the background: this isn't the muddy in-your-face fog from the N64 era. Look how you can see through it, just as you would real fog. This is one beautiful game.
But don't just stare at the graphics. Look at the enemy and partner AI. Watch for the commands system, and the intelligent way you move around the environment. Once you're done being wowed by this video, note that you have another incredible experience waiting for you, after the break.
We have two new videos of SOCOM: Tactical Strike for your viewing pleasure today. First, you can see the SEALs going through a village, trying to keep civilian casualties to a minimum. After the cut, see Tactical Strike's awesome night vision mode in action.
Come back tomorrow where we'll have two more videos to share.
"Let's keep it quiet."
We wish. SOCOM: Tactical Strike looks really great -- it's come a long way since we last saw video of it. The added dialogue is much improved over the laughable computer-synthesized voice used in earlier builds of the game. However, we still want more than a handful of one-liners. Hey, they changed our previous complaint -- maybe they'll address this one as well?
Other than the presentation, we have to admit that the gameplay of Tactical Strike looks intriguing and intense. It's supposed to be less action-oriented than previous SOCOM titles, but you won't notice it in this lengthy, detailed video.
