Are you a Call of Duty Modern Warfare addict like I am? Then you’ll really enjoy the new app Modern Combat: Sandstorm for the iPhone. The new game is available for both the iPhone and iPod touch from Gameloft, and it throws you into the heat of modern combat and battlefields. In the game you are assigned to “Mission Sandstorm” and your mission is to eliminate terrorist and enemy insurgents. The game has 10 feature missions in Middle Eastern battlefields from city streets, ship yards, hospitals and more.
The game opens with a really slick trailer than you’re put into training course to prepare you for combat before you start your mission. Once training is completed you’re dropped off via helicopter to start your first mission. There are 4 difficulty levels you can play, from easy to extreme so you can test your skills as you get better. There is also a good array of weapons to choose, from assault rifles, sniper rifles, RPG, to shotguns and machine guns.
Game play is pretty good and the sound is excellent. As with many iPhone games however, it can take some getting used to as you are using touch screen controls to play the game. After you get used to the different game play on the iPhone, you’ll really start to enjoy this app. While there are other shooter games out there, this one is one of the best, it is available now in the App Store for $6.99.
