UGH! This was horrible!!
I'll stick to the very superior pc version. Man, it's like they screwed it up on purpose to keep the pc game on top. From the graphics to the changed/altered classes and movement, all bad. Sucks so bad, I was hoping for it to be as bad as the pc....
I doubt theyll ever do a straight port of a pc version, 2 bad huh?
The Bottom Line
Undoubtedly, Modern Combat gives you a lot to do, between the single-player Campaign, the various Challenges and what will hopefully be durable multiplayer gameplay. The need to spend a lot of time trying to keep your reckless AI soldiers from rushing headlong into the spray of enemy bullets is frustrating, but it’s what sets this arcade-style game from being confused with the hardcore strategy offered by a game such as Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter. That’s not necessarily a black mark for Modern Combat, but if you’re looking for a chess match, you’ll probably be disappointed by what’s instead feels like the kind of war game you played with toy soldiers as a kid in the backyard—lots of bodies flying around willy-nilly and lying face first in the dirt.
Of course, there’s also the fact that, despite the face lift, this is still essentially the same game that came out a few months ago on Xbox. Better looking and sounding, but little fresh in the way of content. That makes it feel more like it was quickly put together for the Xbox 360 user base—a common occurrence when a game system is newly released.
All that makes it hard to recommend for purchase, but it’s truly a matter of personal taste. If you haven’t played any other console version of Modern Combat and/or you’re looking to boost your Gamerscore with some achievements, you may want to add it to your collection. I’d just as soon wait for the next—and not rehashed—Battlefield to show up.
Wheres the fools that argued with some of us saying it wouldnt be almost the same as the xbox version and was going to resemble the pc version?
