If you're craving innovation, the latest game in a series created as Gameloft's answer to Call of Duty is the wrong place to look, but its lack of ambition doesn't preclude Modern Combat 5: Blackout from being one of the best mobile first-person shooters going.
I had two shiny new things I wanted to show you all this weekend — Gameloft's new first-person shooter, Modern Combat 5: Blackout and Nvidia's powerful Shield Android tablet. Since the latter comes with built-in Twitch streaming, I figured we'd do both.
Gameloft's Modern Combat series may ape Activision's Call of Duty series, but it's definitely not on the same release schedule. Almost a year after the first teaser trailer, the fifth installment of the series has a name: Modern Combat 5: Black Ops — I mean Blackout.
