There were alot of people complaining but I thought they looked pretty good. Slight lag nothing like it was before though.

They put like a one dollar hold or something on your card. It's no big deal at all. If you don't have one ask your parents they won't get charged. I can make a clan and **** if need be..but I don't see it as a huge problem. I go to www.gamebattles.com (http://www.gamebattles.com) and it's usually just immature kids complaining and whining. I thought the graphics looked fine in the videos I saw..

How is the hit detection? I should be getting mine today.

Yeah I figured the credit card thing was some kind of verification thing to keep kids and cheaters away. Hit detection isn't to bad. I played for about two hours last night and heard alot of people complaining but personally I think its great. The thing that stood out to me the most was the number of people, 16 vs. 16, and the size of the maps, one game I played was 4 on 4 and I literally walked all over the map and saw no one. The one breach map called "Citadel" is sweet, its like a older european town with a castle and a bunch of smaller buildings outside and you can jump from rooftop to rooftop. The graphics are good, when you get hit your vision gets slightly blurry. The vehicles are sweet too. I can't wait to get off work and go play some more.

Wow, I just checked out the Socom 3 message board on www.scea.com and there are ALOT of pissed off people out there over the whole credit card verification thing. Personally I think its a good idea, keeps the kids and cheaters out.

I was informed the map shrunk down depending on how many people are on it. Maybe the person running it has to do it, not sure if it's auto or not. Believe me the people you hear bitching are the people who can't shoot. In s2 and you did was spray and pray and it pissed me off cause I felt like half the time (when I wasnt dying from nades) I was getting the first shot off and sitll dying. Does Wal-Mart carry this *****? I know gamespot is gonna be sold out.

Its a lot different, it will take a while to get used too. I am kind of dissapointed. The graphics arent any better and there is still quite a bit of lag.

Can't expect the graphics to be much better, its still on the PS2, hardware makes the graphics. Not to mention the size of the maps is gonna cut down on the space and hurt graphics alittle. What kind of connection do you have? I've played a good bit online and haven't noticed any lag with my cable connection.

only lag i have noticed is in a respawn game. Its impossible to NOT have lag with 32 people playing a map inwhich guns are flaringconstantly and people are respawning every second. but in a "real" game i have seen little to no lag at all which is a huge improvement. also give zipper some time to tweak their servers to perform best given the conditions. There was no way for them to test 50,000 people online until the game was sold so those are adjustments that are needed after the game is released. Overall i am very pleased and have just beaten the game to unlock all the ghillie suits the iw and stg front grip and medium scope...blah blah blah. I think its VERY different from the second but the play value seems to be much better. The little things they improved are HUGE. The friends list in game...the auto play actually works...the clan wars system...i think the ranking system went down hill a little but the minor adjustments are very helpful.

you will have a very hard time catching up with the 100,000+ people playing this game but after a couple weeks you will be have the time of your life. The maps are seriously really big so your gonna need a lot of patience at first in playing the game. Once you learn the maps/spawns/objectives youll find people to fight all the time. It really takes a lot more strategy/skill though to play this version. 16 Vs. 16 is tough competition but so far im really enjoying it. I would say if you dont buy it, your crazy...simply because the series has been amazing thus far.

Well i finally beat the final level on the hardest setting!! That is just plain hard guys if you havent had it yet. Your Bravo group has a tendency to get their butts killed and then your getting it from both sides of the wearhouse. Awesome game just wish it had more levels.

Hmmm... Well your definitely in the minority. I was checking the Socom Forums on Playstation.com and people are raising hell over there about server problems. Been working pretty well lately though.
