    It looked unfinished. The slide doesn't pull back when a shot it fired to eject the spent casing - speaking of which, there are none to be seen exiting the guns. The muzzle flash also looked pretty weak.

    Yay more MC! But not so soon, geez. Do you realize that there are 9 CoDs and this makes 5 MC games? That's insane, this is becoming another milked franchise.

    I completely agree with everything you just said.

    Technically there are more than 9 CoDs if you count the games on handheld consoles (The ones they made for the DS, the one for the PSP and the one on Vita. Not that any of them are good.... You could perhaps count the CoD Zombies games on iOS as well, but those are a bit different). Also, if you're counting MC5 already you'd have to add CoD Ghosts to the number of CoD games.

    Still, Modern Combat is probably the biggest AAA mobile exclusive franchise there is.

    Five modern combats in five years is still too much. I enjoy them, sure, but how about taking a two year break and, oh, I dunno, actually coming up with something remotely original? By that time iOS devices will be powerful enough that they can include 16-20 player MP, maps the size of of NOVA's that are actually populated, partially destructible environments, controllable killstreaks, an armory of 40+ guns, and maybe 2 or 3 unique game modes. Add some maps with water so that we can swim underwater and flank the enemy base, or make a map with a few turrets and interesting environmental hazards. Come on, the possibilities are endless if they just sit down and think for a bit.

    The series it too derivative, that's what I'm trying to say.

    Better yet, forget the campaign and just focus on getting the best MP experience possible. No one cares about what happens to that pasty-thin terrorist at the end of MC4. Or you know what? How about a series of co-op missions, a la spec ops mode in MW.

    I just hope they don't screw over us iPad 4 owners like they did MC4.

    They've done that in a few of their previous games like Splinter Cell.

    Boat part didn't look too good. Noticed like really weird gun recoil?

    It's definitely caught me off guard. My theory is it will come out thesame time, just a earlier trailer like the COD franchise for hype.

    Never said it was fun, just that Gameloft has done it before. Was not a fan.

    It's a locked framerate subject to stutter when loading bumpmaps and ambient shadows. No "lag", perse, rather just a lack of response thanks to the capped FPS.

    The cancelled unreal engine one? Of course they would reuse the assets. It is game loft after all...

    ...the new COD of course. One of its big things is underwater sequences, including entire firefights underwater.

    Its a fair comparison to mention Ghosts but the reality is that it does have more to do with the work they did on March Of Heroes so the concept goes back much farther. And Gameloft wouldn't of had any of the info currently available for Ghosts when developing that sequence.

    Anyway underwater sequences have been in more than a few console games and if I remember right, at the announcement of March of Heroes, there was a lot of similar talk of Gameloft copying whatever console shooter at the time had an underwater sequence, possibly a Battlefield or Medal of Honor game, but maybe Black Ops. Can't remember exactly which one at the time.

    On my 4s it has simple lag when driving into a place you haven't been in a while, but in missions and such there was no lag for me. It's a good game for the price and it's definitely a LARGE improvement in the gangstar series. The only thing i'm not too happy with is the targeting system which could be worked out quickly with an update.
