Move to MCVs
By Heck No!!!
I used to love this game when it first came out 3-4 yrs ago. Back then, you had to pay up front for the game. It was about $5-$6 at the time. The game then was just as beautiful as it is now and the gameplay and controls were 100% on point just like now. Personally I do not mind the sci-fi stuff being added in since I am a fan of games like that regardless of genre. So why the low rating? It is pay to win. Not even that. It is gamble your money away and you may get what you need to improve your class soldier. This one trait just ruins the game entirely. So you pay $5 (or more) on a high enough crate that may or may not give you the armor and such that you need in order to level up your agent. Of all the practices that you Gameloft had to copy from the console gaming market, you had to copy that one. Us informed gamers likely know where you got the idea from (EA cough* cough*). I quit playing this game for that sole reason. Luckily, right when I quit MCVs came out. It is a lot more fun and is like OverWatch. Yes it is freemium and you can pay to get the agents you want but the grinding is fun especially since the game is fun and it does not take long to get the agent you want. They also do trial agents, give you rewards, and crates that have XP and such after each match. I can only hope that what Gameloft did to MC5 they do not do to MCVs. Cause right now I love that game and MC5 went from being my main squeeze to my side-chick to an ex I try to forget.
What the hell?!
By the P.E.K.K.A ruler
I used to love this game. It was really fun and I got to play with different people from all around the world. But the ads. I do not mind the ads, but it gets annoying when the ads either buffer for so long, or they suddenly go back like 5 seconds , so I’m essentially watching the same ad for over double the amount of time. If I spend double the time watching the same ad, I should get double the rewards. There are also incidences when you watch ads for rewards and it states that your connection was low so you cannot watch the ad. If they are going to guarantee you a reward for watching an ad, you cannot simply not provide an ad for the player to watch. This sort of problem needs to be fixed. I sure hope an update will come soon because I just don’t get the rewards I want when I do what’s asked.
Also, the beta version of Battle Royale was really fun, but for some reason, after they updated the app, the game just stoped working. It seems to be on an endless loop of loading. How could this sort of thing happen, if you just recently updated an app that is supposed to fix bug issues or just simply maintenance. Anyway, I hope this kind of problem is solved soon, otherwise this would be a really crappy game.
Mainly a Nintendo switch problem.
Lemme start off by saying that i used to LOVE this game. At the time it was pretty much one of the only good FPS’s on the app store at the time. I dont mind in game purchases that much, just as long as i have fun. Campaign great. Multiplayer is alright. Battle royale is great to. But time and time again it can get a little boring after a while. One of the main reasons why was when i bought the game on my switch. One thing already, its $20 for a free game on phone. Gameloft does not update the switch version, meaning it gets really boring after a while. No horde mode, no battle royale. Just multiplayer and campaign. And on the switch the fps and graphics are dumbed down alot. This discouraged me to play the game at all even on my phone. Then I finally decided to re-download mc5 on my phone. I realized how much more it has than switch. All i ask is a little more performance on the switch. I am okay with playing on my phone, but playing a game like this on my switch will be amazing. There is a few things you would have to update on switch. 1. When you run, the camera should not zoom in that far. 2. Fps is crazy and all over the place. And then 3. Other game modes, and updates regularly. Great game, just please update the switch version more. I would like to read your response.
New update is messing with everything. Some guns fire slower and your hits don’t always register. Me and another player were shooting each other, NOT MOVING, for like 30 seconds and neither of us were taking ANY damage. Finally his shot registered and killed me but nothing else worked.
Point system is all wrong. Capture the flag for instance, one match I played I killed the most on my team and we won the game! All I got was 3 points. It is based off the kills of the other enemy as well. If someone on the other team kills more than you, you could even get negative points even if you win and are top team player. Not based much on weather you win or capture the enemies flag or support a team mate that has it.
Last man standing kills should be huge! If that player wins you the game after he or she is the last alive! Those should be never awarded negative points. Never! Worst feeling in game. Beat it for your team and still get points deducted. I get it’s based on player matching but it’s more than that too. You should never see those points. It should be behind the scenes.
My second review(So far...)
Okay, so first if all, this game isn’t really bad. There’s nice graphics, and it’s a pretty good shooter for a mobile game. But, Gameloft is greedy, and that ruins the fun. For example, I was saving up for a really cool bundle. But as I progressed in the game it got harder. I replayed one level 20 times before I passed it, and I spent credits cause I got so fired up about it. At one point I slammed my iPhone on the floor, point being that the game is literally set up so that it’s all a trap they want you to spend money because they’re a bunch of greedy hogs. The harder the game gets, the more angry you get at the game, the more money you spend, on credits for a full recharge of energy, just for the whole thing to happen again. If I don’t see improvements soon I’m taking the game off my phone. Another thing, ads. I’ve never seen so many ads in one game. Every time one goes away, another comes up. Ads are another way they get money, and that’s why they want to jack it up with them. So they get money! Games like clash of clans make twice as much money as you because they don’t make players rage on there phones and spend like $60+ on stupid credits. But, I’m gonna be fair, and if you ask me on gameplay and graphics or even ease of controls I’d give it a 4 out of 5.
Ridiculous movement controls, not intuitive, bad mission directions!
All the positive reviews about this app are too nice. I’m struggling to understand why it’s an editor’s choice.
General movement and shoot capability are ridiculous but seem workable, well, up until the point you need to lift your digit to press shoot. Once you do that, there’s a 90% chance the place you targeted will move. Altering sensitivity settings changed nothing for this situation or in general. Why not tap to shoot?Furthermore, why wonky general movement control on one side and side-to-side aiming plus shoot button on other side? Shoot needs own side or area, it’s too important to be accidentally pushed when aiming.
Bad mission directions: beginning Rinnoji mission - kill all and find the bomb. I killed them all but never located the bomb. The follow arrows disappeared when directions said find the bomb. I replayed over and over and over. The bomb was not there or its location not intuitive. FYI, I searched everywhere multiple times.
Alas, such a waste of time this app was.
Why so many haters??
Personally, the best FPS game in the App Store. I don’t see how anyone can’t love this game. It runs perfectly, plays smoothly, controls are easily adaptable and controllable, plenty of characters to fit you’re tactical needs— seriously, the developers need a big reward. They weren’t lowing when they said it takes the best from COD. Just one easily fixable issue: the knife button is tricky to control. Because you have to be a certain distance and direction for it to work, knifing is one of the hardest things to do in-game. A suggestion would be to enable knifing all the time like any other control, but you still have to be a certain distance and direction for it to work. It would make it way more controllable and easy to handle instead of getting blasted by a shotgun once they realize you were trying to knife them. Keep it up and try introducing some new characters you can have through leveling up (or buying... be sure to mention what level). Also try new combinations of weapons and abilities for the new characters. Thanks for reading.
Modern combat 5
This game was one of my favorite games to play. But now it’s getting to be one of the worst games. The biggest issue that I’m seeing is that you don’t earn enough coins when playing in team plays or any other games. Now the biggest problem is that my WiFi sign at the top of the page goes red and they can kill you but you can’t kill them. I was being told that it was my WiFi but it’s not I had my internet company come out to look over everything and nothing is wrong I’m getting 100 mbps so no problem there. So it’s the game...... so when that happens you have to stop the game and clear it out and then restart another game and lose any coins that you could have earned. Fix the game or take it down..................... over a month later and another update and update to the game and still have the same problem. Your WiFi symbol at the top of the screen goes red and you can’t kill anyone but they can still kill you. Now after the update every time I try to play the game and it brings the app up it tells me to update the game and it’s already been updated. This game is a piece of junk and if they don’t get their crap together I’m going to delete. Other than that the game is a really fun game just not when all the failure starts happening and you have to lose the game you started.
Good gameplay but campaign could use work
By N.O.V.A rocks
I have played Gameloft’s games since the original modern combat and they get better every game, but MC5’s campaign was a bit disappointing, in the fact that to move on you had to do multiple spec ops missions that sort of waste time. Another aspect I don’t like is the fact it requires WiFi or data to play. One of the things I found so great about the past MC franchise games was they were FPS games that could be played anywhere and their campaigns had great replayability. I like the more classic linear style of the older games. Overall, as a veteran player of these games, I like the old style much more. And maybe in the next version of this or even NOVA, introduce a difficulty system like Call of Duty or Halo. And DO NOT REQUIRE WIFI TO PLAY! Otherwise, it’s an awesome game. And maybe try an open world multiplayer? I may be asking a lot but I consider Gameloft one of the best developers and I know they can do that. WiFi is good for multiplayer, but not the campaign. And also introduce an air combat mission? Love the series, keep up the great work!
This game is awesome don’t get me wrong it one thing that bothers me is that on multiplayer you can’t choose your game mode and map and then join a server with players that picked the same map and game mode that you did. On games like pixel gun and blitz brigade
And battlefront one and two you can which makes them more popular
Also it needs to be easier to get guns and to unlock classes otherwise for people like me who have those almost instant kill laser weapons that are almost impossible to get it will be just too easy and that’s another thing. Competition. So you have guys like me who get lucky and unlock an op weapon early on in the game and then those other people who get awful weapons. So for me I enjoy using lower tier weapons to challenge myself more. But for other players who aren’t as good they are having a difficult time leveling up. So please take away those op weapons and make the game more fun. Please take this into consideration. THX
