Protect America and freedom from enemy forces in urban and rural warfare in SOCOM:
U.S. Navy SEALs Combined Assault, exclusively for the PlayStation®2 computer
entertainment system. SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Combined Assault builds on the strengths
of the multimillion-selling franchise to firmly establish both its single-player
and multiplayer as equally outstanding game experiences. Created in association
with U.S. Naval Special Warfare Command, SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Combined Assault
is as close as a player can get to being a Navy SEAL on PlayStation 2.

cooperative mode. Additionally, players will have the option to select an individual
tactical mission area that was previously completed, and play it as a stand-alone,
or 'Instant Action', mission in 4-player online cooperative play. Players can
then customize these Instant Action missions for nearly endless replay.
