We feel sorry for the oft-misunderstood SOCOM: Tactical Strike
. Fans who bought the game were surprised to see it wasn't a shooter -- instead, it was a methodically paced strategy game which required patience, intelligence and nerves of steel. PSP Fanboy reader Jason commented
earlier: "I guess if you bought it without checking out any previews and thought it was an action shooter, then yeah, it could be a let down. If you play the first mission with the tutorial it shows you everything you need to know and it does it in a real game situation."
For those of you ready to take the plunge into the full game, check out this week's Best Buy circulars. You'll see that Tactical Strike
is on sale this week for a measly $20. Go to your local Best Buy, or simply buy online
