When we put together our Top 10 FPS Games on iPad article for Episode 2 of Grab It, it made for a surprisingly impressive list for a genre that wouldn't at first feel like a natural fit on touchscreens. However, the genre has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years.
The Modern Combat series is often compared to Call of Duty, for obvious reasons. But what is indisputable is that Modern Combat has established itself as one of the premier shooters on iOS. After four iterations, with Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour Gameloft has nailed the fundamentals of a solid, approachable and fun mobile FPS experience. And yes, for all those waiting to hear it – the controls are as tight and responsive as we’ve seen in any shooter on a mobile device. The plot may follow the well-worn path of its many peers, but at the end of the day, I don’t play first-person shooters to stimulate my noggin. The high-end production values also make an impact: as this may be the most beautiful looking shooter I’ve come across on iOS. A great game for Retina screens.
If you’re feeling tentative about dipping your toe into the icy water of the mobile FPS genre, this is a solid place to start. And the game is currently on a big sale, down from $6.99 to just 99c. You can grab it right here.
