Today Gameloft tipped us off to their next title in what I suppose is now appropriate to refer to as the Modern Combat series. Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus is the sequel to Modern Combat: Sandstorm [$4.99 / Free / HD] and while we don't know many specifics about the game yet, it's probably safe to assume it will come loaded with the same military-centric Call of Duty inspired gameplay that made the original so much fun.

We liked Modern Combat: Sandstorm quite a bit in our review, and I expect that the sequel will be fun as well especially with how much Gameloft has evolved their graphics engines and gameplay mechanics since then. If you've been looking forward to another Modern Combat game, you might not have to wait too much longer.

    Is it just me or have Gameloft gotten lazy with their interface designs? (Control stick, health bars, fire buttons, etc.) The original Hero of Sparta had a cool looking interface, but the sequel's looked like it was still a work in progress. And the interface in this game looks to be marginally worse than the original.

      Well...

      1. We still haven't seen an actual game with the Epic engine.
      2. These graphics nonetheless are quite improve from their predecessor.

    • Himanshu

      So true! Am not going to buy any FPS till we get a game on the EPIC Unreal engine! Not that i did not enjoy Nova and Zombie infection... but the bar's been raised and I want a game to match!

    >Boy after Citadel, it's all down hill…

    I totally agree. I wish all the new games would look like that.
    And not only that, I have an iPhone 4 and an iPad. i don't want to buy the game twice again just to play it big in HD and to play it with the gyro on the iPhone.
    Please start going universal Gameloft. For all I care make Universal and make them a buck more expensive.

    • stanek

      Are you kidding? Gyro issent universal, dude.

      • Leonick

        Gyro not being universal doesnt stop them having it in the app an letting you use tha same app on the iPad...

        Or did the updated NOVA stop working on all other devices? Right no it just didnt use the gyroscope features as a gyroscope wasnt present

    I think it's pretty funny that they put in a snow level just to match with MW2.

    • ErkB729

      i think they were just trying to go for a larger range of environments, not to match mw2 exactly. just because it has a snow level doesn't mean they got it from mw2. though i do agree, most of the ideas will come from it.

    I know is famous for copying other well known games but Black Pegasus and COD Black ops i gotta say....gameloft start making your own games please

    • SalsaMD

      Why? Supply/demand. No one else is coming to the plate as often with serious idevice titles, however, derivative.

    • Christian Bale

      Well I'd rather have a company like gameloft who tries to make good games than nothing at all. It's just too bad that Activision doesn't do anything except for COD Zombies. They could easily make a downgraded version of Modern warfare and I'd be happy if the graphics are as good as zombies and controls works like Modern combat. I really hope epic games make GeOW on the iPhone 4 it would be crazy. At least multi.

    Step up its multiplayer with at least 4v4, level up system with perks and what not and gamecenter support. This could be big.

      You're not getting all that for 6.99. You want console-quality features, then go out and buy a 59.99 console game.

    It would cost a fortune for all games to look like Epic Citadel. Then we would be paying a fortune to play them. "Epic Citadel" games are going to sell for 6.99 a piece. Anyone other than Epic will owe royalty fees on that Engine. They owe a percentage of their profits to Apple. And now they will owe another percentage to Epic. The price of games like that are likely to be jacked up, big time.

    They need to make the hands look more realistic

    • Mr Slinky Spring

      I thought that too. They could've sacrificed a few more polygons to round things off a bit- especially as your hand and gun are the two things on your screen 99% of the time!

      Epic Citadel is not a full game yet. You should be glad that you're getting a full game with these graphics, which are plenty good enough and far above the general App Store standard of 3D graphics.

      • JediMaster

        Ermmmm...you can buy the modern combat game when is out...I can wait for games that build on unreal engine...or we can always play console games...its just matter of opinion & perspective...everyone knows epic citadel is not a full game...but it does put things off...from a consumer point of view...if I am not hard out on it...I'll just wait...I mean if you like it go ahead and buy it when its out...sheesh...

    damn!! looks twice as fun than the orifinal!
    and i bet that the online gameplay will be better, but hope that they improve to the ironsight of the wepons. Maybe including ACOG sight :P

    Just a wish, but will be nice if they do it.

    I don't want them to improve the sights. Overpowered sights are stupid & lame, especially when it comes to multiplayer. Scope-spamming only leads to excessive camping.

    Nice, it should come out before November since it said "this autumn" as I recall.. It would be nice if it comes out very soon like September.. I hope people won't pirate it since sandstorm was awesome, and still is great.

    For all those waiting for unreal engine games it's probably going to take a while, for those saying the games will cost too much to develop and we'll be paying 60 dollars for games you honestly have no idea what you're talking about.

    There used to be a competition called make something unreal , in which modders had to make the best games they could and in return they would receive a free licence for the engine , small teams of half a dozen people used to knock outer high quality FPS games like Red Orchestra, certainly better than anything on iPhone thus far.

    There is no reason why prices will shoot up, becuase the licence is percentage based, so they only pay for what they sell, and if prices went up too far no-one would buy it, it's better to sell lots for a smaller profit than it is to sell none of a larger profit.

    Games using engines like the unreal engine will be easier to make than games starting from scratch, it was built with modding in mind.

    I am the only one who thinks it looks really good? The draw distance has improved and the characters seem a hell of a lot cleaner.

    Should be fun (if they get rid of the three-legged unicorn writing the script, that is).

    Just wondering after seeing all the epic citadel comments, is that the main focus of ios game now too? Graphics? You can only play the game with the most impressing graphics?
    Have people forgot hwo to play a game because it is just simply fun? It's not like you can say this looks bad...

    • http://meadiciona.com.br/charles_anjos Charles

      Well, it depends. It's always a sum of gameplay and technology. You see, FPS have not evolved very much in gameplay, so the graphics have an important role in selling. I did not buy the first Modern Combat because, compared to NOVA, the graphics were shit. This one is interesting, looking forward to it.

    I really feel sorry for most of you guys here. You don't enjoy games anymore like Leonick says. You guys simply don't enjoy games. You wait until you get "best graphics than X console" or "X game" and you end up just waiting to be the coolest kid in the block with the coolest device on your backpack with the coolest graphics on the market.

    To developers: this public is a waste of time if you ask me. They will NEVER be complete as gamers. Sony may come up with a portable PS3 or some virtual thing you have to stick in your forehead to see the world around you melt and become a game and they wil still go "nahh... I will wait until it's half the price" or "I suggest holding off until X feature comes out" or "I think Epic Citadel 5 looks better, so I will be holding off".

    Really boring players compared with the Sega/Nintendo era. People who don't even enjoy a game for god's sake.

    You get a great game and all you can talk off is if it looks better than some tech dome some company made? do you really enjoy the game or just the graphics? because it may be a better business model to just come up with tech demos so "gammers" can sit around and drawl on the "possibilities" for 0,99.

    Shame and a really waste of capacity.
