Nostalgia isn't quite enough to propel this memorable FPS to success when the controls are this dubious.

Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Carter Dotson on December 6th, 2012
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: THOROUGHLY MODERN...AND FAMILIAR
Modern Combat 4 is a military FPS built for mobile devices, and while Gameloft definitely brings exceptional production values to the table, it still is held back by the nature of touchscreen controls.

Hands-On Video Preview of Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour from Gameloft

Posted by Jeff Scott on November 14th, 2012

Gameloft has a history of making the best first person shooters on iOS. Modern Combat and N.O.V.A. are two amazing console quality shooter franchises. This week we get to tell you about a hands-on we had with the latest FPS from Gameloft, the next version in the Modern Combat series, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour. First up, here's the intro sequence to MC4.

While on one level you could say that Modern Combat 4 is just more Modern Combat, is that all bad? I don't think so. Modern Combat is one of the best franchises available on iOS. And in this version Gameloft have truly taken everything in the game to the next level. With amazing Retina graphics, great single player campaign, multiple vehicles, great voice acting, and a deep multiplayer system that has to be seen to be believed.

You'll likely spend as many as 14 hours working through the single player campaign. The multiplayer is where this game really shines. The number of hours that can be spent there is pretty much endless. An amazing array of unlockables, customizations, power up, vehicles, weapons, and multiple play modes seem to go on forever.

Gameloft plans on releasing Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour before the end of the year. If I were a guessing man, I'd guess they will get it out just before Christmas. It's not to be missed.

Total Recall Review

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: UNINSPIRING
Total Recall is a fairly uneventful and run of the mill linear shooter, despite the story potential.

Heroes & Generals Enters Closed Beta

Posted by Kevin Stout on May 23rd, 2012

Creators of Hitman, Roto-Moto, has launched a closed beta of their game, Heroes & Generals. The game is a massively multiplayer first-person shooter involving online fighting between the Axis and Allied forces in Europe.

The game involves both strategic elements and first-person shooter (FPS) elements. Each side sends reinforcements, tanks, and other support to battles going on in various cities. The FPS fights don't necessarily have to be even, hence the need for support being sent to each side.

The game is actually a PC game but it will be offering a free companion app to the game called Heroes & Generals: Mobile Command. The app lets users access and view the campaign their playing in the PC version of the game. This includes viewing things like battlefields and supply lines on the map. It also allows players to chat with other players on their team when they aren't even on the PC game - allowing constant communication to continue for a constant online war. A future update to the app will allow users to move and manage assault teams in the game and most other strategy elements (the non-FPS part).

To apply for a key to the closed beta, visit the Heroes & Generals website here.

Wolfenstein 3D Free in Celebration of 20th Anniversary

Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :: Read Review »

Wolfenstein 3D, the hit classic first-person shooter, is celebrating its 20th anniversary. In celebration of the 20th anniversary, there are all kinds of perks and free stuff for fans.

Most important of the awesome offers for the anniversary is a price drop for the iOS version of the game, Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum. As of May 9th, the game dropped from $1.99 to free. The game won't be free permanently. It's only on sale for a limited time.

An addition, there's now a browser version of the game launched at Bethesda's website and on the Wolfenstein Facebook page. Upon writing that last sentence, I was immediately distracted by about a half hour of playing Wolfenstein in my browser.

I immediately downloaded the iOS version of Wolfenstein when I heard it was free. I grew up with the game. It was the first first-person shooter I ever played. It may have been the first computer game I ever played. Those looking for some nolstagia over the weekend are in for a treat.

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: PRETTY GOOD NOVA
N.O.V.A. 3 is Gameloft's latest first-person shooter, and it's quite a looker, but does the technical expertise lead to a fun game underneath?

Battlefield 3 Aftershock Details And Screenshots Released

Posted by Jennifer Allen on December 1st, 2011

On a regular basis, I'm wowed by the impressive graphics we're seeing on the latest iOS games. None more so than in the case of Battlefield 3 Aftershock from EA. It's only in an early alpha state but already it's looking pretty amazing for an iPhone or iPad game.

Scant details have been released so far but there will be a single player mode as well as multiplayer fun to be had. EA promises ragdoll physics and a combat engine built around facing up against hordes of enemies in wave formations, hopefully providing an experience ideal for the brief game sessions many get with their iOS devices.

Intriguingly there will also be connectivity with Battlefield 3 on other platforms with achievements and weapon unlocks suggested to be the result of this. As a fan of the BattleLog available for PC and console gamers, I've got my fingers crossed that the iOS version has some kind of connection to this.

No release date has been announced other than sometime this Winter. For now, take in the delights of these screenshots that look darn impressive for any iOS device.

Nexon Mobile Announces Unreal Engine-Powered FPS, Combat Arms: Zombies

Posted by Carter Dotson on November 2nd, 2011

Nexon Mobile, developers of Maple Story Cygnus Knights Edition, has announced a new first person shooter for iOS, Combat Arms: Zombies. The game will be based off Combat Arms, a free to play game for PC. Specifically, this game is based off of the Fireteam mode of the original, which puts players against oncoming enemy hordes, trying to survive and advance from checkpoint to checkpoint. As the title insinuates, the iOS version features that latest cultural craze, zombies, as the foe of choice. Nexon Mobile plans to release the game later this November after debuting the game at South Korea's G-Star gaming expo on November 10th. The game will be available for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, amd while there has been no confirmation, it will likely be a free to play title like the PC version. The game will be running on Unreal Engine 3, and according to Nexon Mobile CEO, Albert Rim, it "will set a new standard for graphics...on mobile devices." Check out a teaser trailer for the game below.

Warm Gun Review

A futuristic wild west shooter providing an experience that is flawed, but beautiful. The lack of variety and graphical hiccups mar this potentially impressive FPS.
