So SOCOM: Confrontation has been out for about 2 months now. You might be wondering why we still haven’t put up our review, and the simple answer is that the game just isn’t done. I’m waiting for the 1.30 patch that will actually deliver on features that are on the box such as ‘Quick Match’ and ‘Trophies’.
Some might think of this as special treatment, but when it comes to an online-only game such as Confrontation, you NEED an Internet connection in the first place to even experience the game. Thus I believe it only makes sense to review what the true experience was meant to be in the eyes of the developer, as it’s the same experience that everyone will be playing as the game continues to grow.
SOCOM: Confrontation, like many online-only games, is a constantly evolving experience, and as someone who reviews games I think it’s important that we as a media adapt with our industry. Keep an eye out for the release of the 1.30 patch, as once I spend enough time with the game after that my review will be around the corner.
