Only reason this is named "Unit 13", and not "SOCOM: Unit 13", is so they can continue to make weird gameplay choices, that continue to piss off the SOCOM faithful. This way, they can come out and say, "Well this isn't SOCOM, so stop yelling at us!"

It'll work too. Hell, maybe they should have named SOCOM 4, "Unit 12" instead.
