    In short, MC3 is a game that, while slightly muscle-headed in its approach to character development, more than delivers when it comes to gripping, relentless and spectacular gameplay.

    While Modern Combat 3 doesn't feel anywhere near as revolutionary as the previous title, it still manages to up the ante with an exciting campaign and online multiplayer that's compelling enough to keep coming back for more.

    I can safely say that this is the best shooter yet on iOS and if you're in any way a fan of the FPS genre, particularly if you own an iPhone 4S or iPad 2, this should be on your list of Apps to own.

    Gameloft takes their Modern Warfare-clone and improves on everything. A good singleplayer campaign complements the awesome multiplayer mode. Lots of perks, killstreaks and great variety in the maps (which this time around are much larger end better designed). This is truly Gameloft's finest game yet, and the best shooter on iOS!

    Thanks to Modern Combat 3's fantastic multiplayer, not only will I be able to reclaim my right as a gamer to blow people up at 3 in the morning, but because we're now in an era where this is all possible on my phone, any location in the world is open to me and my underpants.

    A huge, intense, and polished shooter. Modern Combat 3 is the best FPS on mobile devices, especially if you're a multiplayer-minded gamer.

    An unfortunately mixed bag. It looks and sounds great, but the writing seems haphazard, the gameplay feels clunky at best (and buggy at worst) and its online reliability is sporadic.

    This is easily one of the best iOS games available on the app store. Great graphics, almost console like. Plug this thing into your TV with HDMI or Air Play and you might even think your playing MW2. Must buy for any FPS fan. Expand

    I like this game because of the gameplay, weapons, and visuals. The graphics, it doesn't matter, because all mobile games are meant to be like that all the time. I really like first person shooters. Expand

    Game is amazing. Maybe the best on the app store. DEFINATELY the best shooter of all time on the app store! You will spend hours upon hours in it's competitive 10 player multiplayer with the ammount of leveling and unlcoking of weapons. Thankfully, the killstreaks are balanced. And can be countered. And when you're not connected to internet on the go you can always play offline in it's well written, ok acted, and excellently written 6-8 hour campaign. Not to mention the graphics in this game are stunning for a iOS game almost console worthy. DEFINATELY early Xbox 360 worthy. Astonishing ammount of content for a low price. This gives plenty of games a run for it's money. Expand

    Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation it's a worthy/strong tittle that needs to be in your IOS, and if you appreciate the huge epic CoD moments then , there's no complain apart from the unresponsive gameplay. Expand

    For iOS this is a great game. I love the graphics and the story is very deep. The campaign has adrenaline filled fun levels, but, the game sometimes dives into deep frustration and the game sometimes suffers from bugs. The multiplayer is like any other FPS multiplayer but with gamecenter it is great because you can play with your friends easily. Sadly, about the multiplayer, the server might bug out and not let you on 1 out of every 5 times. Overall the game is good, but bugs and a sometimes frustrating campaign keeps it from being it's best. Expand

    I tried to enjoy this game and found a few things enjoyable but for the most part it just wasn't fun. Some things I think the game got right are: graphics which look great for an IOS game presentation which I feel is above all other games on the platform and its multiplayer which supports up to 12 players which is cool. I didn't like the controls however and that is ultimately what ruined my experience the controls were clunky and hard to work out making the game unenjoyably at most times some may disagree however but this is my opinion of the game. Overall if you can get the controls to work for you it can be a satisfying experience but i just couldn't Expand
