From Gameloft comes the new installment of the popular mobile first-person shooter (FPS) series, Modern Combat. Modern Combat 5: Blackout puts you in the role of Caydan Phoenix, a previously minor character that appeared in the game’s predecessor and who has uncovered a plot within Gilman Security that shows the company’s involvement in recent terror attacks.
Make sure you got your Internet connection turned on when you play the game, because it requires you to be constantly connected to the Internet even if you’re only playing the single-player campaign. This is because there are side-missions that require you to join up with other players through the online port, and you will definitely need your Internet connection for that.
The gist of each mission is this - you have three objectives that you have to complete before you reach the end of the mission. Each of these objectives will grant you a Star, and a full 3-star rating is needed in order for you to unlock the next part of the story.
The game will play a short cut-scene that will further flesh out the story for you in between each mission. These cut scenes also help you understand why you have those objectives in the mission in the first place, and will somehow give you a clue what to expect in the next mission after that.
Of course, if you’re not the type that likes to follow storylines, you can simply skip these cut-scenes and go on to the actual game.
The multiplayer aspect of Modern Combat 5: Blackout features one unique feature you rarely find in an FPS, much less a shooter in the mobile market. There are character classes that you can choose from, and you can customize each of these classes further to make each of your soldiers suitable to your playing style.
If you like throwing grenades, for instance, you can customize the Assault class by purchasing various accessories that let you carry more grenades as well as armor that let you take a little more punishment before throwing in the gauntlet.
It’s always best to know how you like the play so that you can make the most out of the game’s multiplayer features.
Just like its predecessors, this shooter carries some of the best graphics and images in the mobile FPS market. The sprites and the backgrounds are all rendered in delicious high-definition graphics, making Modern Combat 5: Blackout truly the apple of your eye even in the mobile devices with the smallest of screens.
In a nutshell, this first-person shooter combines together a good storyline worthy of an action movie, graphics that rivals even its desktop competitors and gameplay challenges that should keep you on your toes.
