Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation Review: The Best First-Person Shooter on the App Store

The first-person shooter genre has, for the most part, been solely owned by Gameloft on the App Store.  With their Halo-clone series NOVA and their Call of Duty-clone series, Gameloft has continually shown that even though they tend to rip off a lot of ideas, their games are enjoyable and have a lot of depth to them.

The trend continues with Modern Combat 3, a fully functional first-person shooter with online multiplayer and a pretty lengthy campaign mode.

Modern Combat 3 contains 12 total singe player missions, each taking around 20 minutes to complete.  The online multiplayer features a ton of different weapons, skills, attachments, accessories (grenades, sticky grenades, mines, etc.), and weapon kits, all alongside the new military support such as bomber, airstrike, radar, and nuke.

There are a total of seven different online multiplayer modes and six maps, and quite honestly, they’ve improved the multiplayer maps a lot from the maps in Modern Combat 2.  They’re a lot larger and have a lot more hiding spots, making it much more suspenseful than the previous game in the series.

All in all, Modern Combat 3 is one fantastic game.

Likes 

Graphics: The graphics in Modern Combat 3 are insane.  I never knew my iPad 2 could handle this detail, let alone have that detail transfer into a 12-player online multiplayer mode.  The work they’ve done in the graphical department is absolutely fantastic, and even though I thought that Gameloft would not be able to improve the graphics of Modern Combat 2, they’ve proven me wrong yet again.

Online multiplayer: I love how they added new things into the online multiplayer such as military support and new weapons and such, making this the most addictive online multiplayer experience on the App Store.  It comes very close to console quality in terms of how much variety there is to the multiplayer, and I’m in utter awe at how well of a job Gameloft has done with the multiplayer.  It’s extremely fun, well-balanced, well-varied, and overall just a blast to play for hours at a time.  There are a few gripes I have with it though, but I’ll get to that later.

Universal: I love Gameloft’s decision to make all of their future games universal, and I’m really enjoying the online multiplayer on both my iPad and my iPhone.

Dislikes

Bugs, Disconnections, etc.: The thing about the online multiplayer is that it doesn’t work all the time, and there are some times when you’re sitting at your desk continually trying to connect to the server with no avail.  It does get frustrating sometimes, and while the multiplayer is brilliant for most of the time, there are those few times when it refuses to budge.

Lag: For some reason, the game lags heavily on my iPhone 4, both online and off.  I don’t think the iPhone 4 is THAT old of a device, and it should be running quite smoothly.  But alas, Modern Combat 3 seems to be just too much for my “old” device, and for those of you out there with an iPhone 4, here’s a word of warning for you.

File size: The game is slightly over 1 GB of memory, and it takes quite a long time to download.  Just keep in mind that you’ll need to clear up some space for an app this size, and be prepared to wait at least 20 minutes for it to fully download and install.

Modern Combat 3 is absolutely brilliant, and I find myself continually playing the online multiplayer everyday.  The single player is also quite robust and diverse, giving Modern Combat 3 a well-balanced gameplay between shooting bad guys and mini-games, such as shooting soldiers on an AC-130.  Anyhow, if you haven’t picked this game up yet, I suggest you to do so right away no matter the price.  This is one you shouldn’t miss.

Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation was developed by Gameloft, and I played through version 1.0 on my iPhone 4 and iPad 2.  The price is $6.99.

    The server issue has been persistent on my side too. It wouldn’t connect at all for days at times which would leave me wondering what the developers are doing about it all. However, the graphics are indeed amazing and I’ve had a good run with my mates the other. I am really hoping and update with rid it of all these bugs.
