THE BUZZ: Zipper Interactive—the team behind Sony’s popular SOCOM franchise—are bringing their love for tactics shooting action to the Vita in the upcoming Unit 13.
While various aspects of the game’s high-pressure action missions have been shown off, today the developer gave a gameplay preview of one of the game’s more stealth- and strategy-based covert missions.
EGM’s TAKE: I’m curious to see how SOCOM fans will take to Unit 13. Will those fans be disappointed that the game isn’t a new chapter of the SOCOM franchise? Or will those players enjoy the chance to play a game that has some of the same elements, but which at the same time brings in new ideas and gameplay options?
