Socom II owns :] After you've adjusted to the original changes, perfect your shot and your weapon choice, then it's a really good game. You have to understand that everyone is on a level playing field (bar the few with 150k), and everyone takes almost the same amount of hits. It can become very laggy at times, but there is a great community on the game at the moment, so you can just start chatting to someone as soon as you join a room.

From what i've played of Smackdown vs. Raw, i'd definately get it if it has headset support. I had an amazing game once, which really put me in the mood to by the game. Does anyone know how the final online system works though? Do you earn XP as you beat oponnents, and then you use the XP to make your character better?

I'll be waiting to see what [SE] think of Battlefront before getting it. I know it was based on Socom as such, but i don't really like "futuristic-shooters" so may have to stay away from this.

I have only played a demo online of unreal tournament 2004 and it was quite good but I think the games that they make just to play on the internet spoil things!

I think it's great, although there are some lame things.

Well as i don't like a war game with poor hitboxes, the fact you have to shoot someone about 8 times before they finally die and bloody foreigners invading English online games because they're too stupid to read the two letters at the top of the room reading 'UK' then yes in my opinion it was a horrible game and Socom 1 was much better. It's just a shame that's been over run by sad pathetic little cheats
