Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour serves impressive graphics, now arrives on Android



Gameloft has just released Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour on Android, and it is one of the most impressive first-person shooters to have ever arrived on the platform. The game launched a couple of days on the iPhone and iPad, and it boasts about running on the Havoc engine, the same graphical platform that powers the newest Call of Duty games.

The jaw-dropping graphics come with both a single and multi-player modes, and if you want to switch sides, Modern Combat 4 also allows you to play the villain. The biggest changes come in multiplayer mode, though, with tons of new ways to arm yourself.

Get ready for some serious shooting, the game will strike you with improvements in visuals from the get-go, and that translates onto its size - it now weighs around 2GB.

The only slight downside is the price. At $6.99 this is one of the more expensive games on the app catalog, but given the sophistication and effort that went into it, we doubt that you’d regret your purchase, especially if you are a fan of the FPS genre.


Update: It seems the download link on Google Play has just gone down. Some users have noted issues with the actual download, so it is possible that Gameloft is fixing those issues right now. Hopefully, the game will be back online soon.

Games do not eat up CPU resources all that much. It is the GPU that needs to be powerful to run the game smoothly.

hmm do maths or practicle on ur PC if u have time use the top GPU card available with the obsolite CPU P4 and same time move on to higend CPU with average GPU both might end up same with very below the average performance but now put both normal CPU and GPU it will outperform the other two why cuz there is balance. coming to ur point GPU handles most of the part not all of it. depends who is the developer a good one or a newbee

Yes, as we've noted in the update the game has disappeared from the Play Store after users reported problems with the download. It should be back soon.Yes, as we've noted in the update the game has disappeared from the Play Store after users reported problems with the download. It should be back soon.

Unless it sucks as bad as modern combat 3 for Android, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting 4 a discount. As modern combat 2 still sells for $6.99.

I still have $7 in gift card credit and I'm still wondering if I should use it on this game or not for iOS. But I have an iPod touch 4 so it probably won't work given how laggy MC3 is.

Great, now that's good news. but I think at this moment my present device wont be able to handle that much graphics. Oh well time to scout for a better device (GPU wise) for 2013.

indeed, as for mine it's basically equiped with adreno 205 so performance is greatly questionable for this game.
