SOCOM II has many improvements from the original one. The graphics in the game are a minor improvement, but the most noticealbe improvement of all would be the AI. Your fellow comrades are on your sqaud are much smarter and can think for themselves. The voice recognition interface has also been improved. Your AI squad can now easily interpret what you say with ease than in the first game. SOCOM II does offer single player offline play, but an experienced player can be able to finish the game in less than a day. If you're going to plan on buying this game I recommend the online multiplayer. The maps on the multiplayer are fairly detailed in size and there are plenty nooks for your character to hide. This game is a must buy for people who like shooters and online combat play.
