While the world’s media prepares once again to get thoroughly confused with the brew-ha-ha surrounding the release of a new Call of Duty game, iPhone owners can experience a taste of the action already with Gameloft’s ‘tribute’, Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus.
Calling MC2 a straight up copy would do the game a massive disservice though. While the
game is plainly taking inspiration from Activision’s huge franchise, the gameplay and graphics
(running smoothly on everything from a 2G upwards) blows every current FPS on the
platform out of the water.
The combination of cinematic single-player gameplay, improved controls that take full advantage of the iPhone 4’s gyro, and what can only be described as the finest multiplayer mode (naturally – it’s taken almost note-for-note from Modern Warfare 2), create an unmissable action game that any FPS fan will appreciate, despite the unoriginal subject matter.
