SOCOM is the first legit shooter for a handheld unit. The widescreen really helps, but it's the approach to the shooter genre that clicks. The controls are 100 percent intuitive and despite a "lock-on" targeting feature, aiming and connecting are anything but a sure thing. In single-player mode, each player commands a team of two, as opposed to a four-man team on the PS2, through what seems like endless environments. In the online mode, players communicate through headsets to share strategies, and fight together with no terrible lag or slide-show effects. Fourteen missions have you engaged in all of the usual military stuff: killing, rescuing, spying and destroying are all well represented in the mission pyramid. Be the gun.
