Older Socom Titles Still Pack a Punch!

socomGreetings out there PSP gamers! After an eventful holiday and getting back into the swing of things it’s time to start pounding the ground with some exciting Socom action.

While most of us out there are playing various Call of Duty titles, Army of 2 40th Day, Super Mario Wii, etc., others on a more limited budget may be surprised to discover that there are some innovative titles out there that they may have passed over when they were new. For the purpose of this article, I would like to highlight the Socom Fireteam Bravo series on the PSP, along with Socom 3 and Socom: Combined Assault on the PS2.

The reason I would like to highlight these titles is for the simple fact that they are alive and well, with plenty of action still to be had online and offline.

The biggest surprise is how strong the PSP Fireteam Bravo titles are still going online, which is definitely a plus for PSP owners that don’t own either the first Fireteam Bravo game or its sequel, Fireteam Bravo II. Not too bad for a 4 year old and 3 year old title, respectively. If you own a PSP and missed out on these, get a hold of them. Their servers are still cranking and there’s plenty of players still out there.

The Fireteam Bravo series on the PSP provides the same excitement and realism that their PS2 counterparts carry (Socom 3 and Socom: Combined Assault). One of the greatest features of these games is the ability to link up your PSP to your PS2 via USB to accomplish various “crosstalk” objectives. When you strive for 100% mission completion, including secret objectives, and link your PSP up, you unlock various features such as weapons, characters, and other aids for mission success in the PS2 counterpart. The reverse holds true for completing objectives in Socom 3 that “crosstalk” with Fireteam Bravo, and also for completing “crosstalk” objectives in Socom: Combined Assault for the PS2 for Fireteam Bravo II on the PSP.

So what are you waiting for? Get a hold of Socom: Fireteam Bravo for the PSP and Socom 3 for the PS2 if you haven’t played them. Then follow it up with Fireteam Bravo II for PSP and Socom: Combined Assault for PS2. These titles are all a bit older now, but can be found used on the cheap. With the crosstalk objectives and active online community, these Socom titles will definitely keep you going for weeks and weeks of steady play on both the PSP and PS2. Sandman out!
