First, let’s start things off with a confession: I have not played a first person shooter (FPS) on an iDevice before Gameloft’s Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation. I have, however, played my fair share on consoles and PC. As a result, I dove into Modern Combat 3 with a healthy dose of skepticism. Will it control well? Will the graphics look as advertised? Will the gameplay let me down like other wannabe shooters on the market? Let’s just say it handled better than I expected. The graphics look impressive, the controls are adequate, and the single player campaign will take you to a variety of environments and even have you step into the shoes of an AC-130 gunship to rain death from above. Yeah, like we haven’t seen that before. That said, this is the closest to Call of Duty you’re ever going to get on a mobile device while riding the MUNI metro to Montgomery street, San Francisco. Unlike other shooters where Russian or Middle East insurgents are the enemy, Modern Combat 3 combines extremist groups from North Korea, Pakistan, and Russia into the game’s antagonist faction officially known as the KPR. The KPR have managed to take over a good portion of the United States and it’s up to you, the player, to turn the tide as a member of Phantom Squad, a covert military unit assigned to undertake high risk operations. The game wastes no time throwing you into the action in the first mission by having you mow down enemies and destroying tanks and attack helicopters. I died a lot in this level just trying to get used to the FPS controls. This is not a good way to start the game I should say. A more simple, easy going level would have been more ideal as the first mission of the game. But I adapted and overcame this slight setback, took down the pesky attack chopper at the end and whispered  “Hell yeah!” to myself. The overall gameplay in Modern Combat 3 revolves around you following around another AI controlled character waypoint to waypoint carrying out different objectives in the level. This could be planting explosives, hacking a computer terminal, or downloading crucial files to defeat the KPR onslaught. The control scheme consists of virtual buttons on either half of the screen. Touch anywhere on the left side and it becomes your virtual stick for movement. Tap and hold on the right to aim your weapon. There are buttons for shooting, grenades, and aiming down your sights a la Call of Duty. The button layout seemed oddly placed for me at first but since they’re fully customizable I wasted no time re-arranging the buttons as I saw fit. The game features a forgiving auto lock on feature that more than makes up for a difficult input method. As long as you’re aiming near an enemy, you can tap that ever useful ADS (Aim Down Sights) button to auto lock onto the bad guy and blow his brains out. I might sound like a total n00b, I know, but it really helps! If only I could hook up a controller or a mouse and keyboard to my iDevice… Modern Combat 3 also provides a very Call of Duty-like multiplayer mode. The “standard” modes apply here as well. Team deathmatch, capture the flag, and zone control are playable throughout six maps with support for 12 players at a time. A CoD style progress system is present as well which includes: level-ups, weapon challenges, killchains, perk customization and more.
