Modern Combat: Sandstorm in Review – I’m Not Crying, I Just Got Sand In My Eyes

Having just recovered from the sheer awe of Gangstar, my sanity is threatened again by yet another awesome cat which Gameloft just pulled from the proverbial bag: Modern Combat: Sandstorm (MC: S). Saying MC: S is a FPS (first person shooter) with nice 3D graphics would be an understatement. MC: S is one of the most realistic App Store games to date; a game with a fantastic story line, voiceovers, amazing sound effects – saying that would just about cover the tip of the iceberg.

Gameloft’s Modern Combat: Sandstorm blasts into App Store

modern-combat-sandstorm-preview1

About a month ago, we had posted the teaser trailer for the eagerly awaited Modern Combat: Sandstorm by Gameloft. The video surprised a lot of folks with just how good games on the iDevice can look and makes us wonder if developers have already pushed the iPlatform to its limits in the visuals department (lets hope not). Well the wait is over for all you FPS and Call of Duty 4 fans;  Modern Combat is now finally out at the App Store.

Modern Combat: Sandstorm, Gameloft’s new action-thriller will plunge you into the heart of modern war. Assigned to Mission Sandstorm, your duty is to locate and annihilate a new terrorist cell setting up shop and recruiting foreign insurgents in a remote desert hot spot. This jarring first person shooter will equip you with the most sophisticated and powerful modern day weapons.

You never want to judge a book by its cover, but damn, Modern Combat is looking like a must have FPS for the iPhone/iPod Touch. If blasting terrorists to bits is your cup of tea (on the iDevice no less), you probably don’t want to miss out on Gameloft’s latest App Store offering. More info including a sweet gameplay trailer after the jump.

Shrek Kart – Trust me, “You drive like an ogre!” just ain’t Politically Correct no more

I won’t get religious here, but Mario may have saved my life several times over. Seriously. Had I not been playing Super Mario Kart in 1994, I would have taken the long road home and been hit by a bus which, on the very corner which I always stopped to drain… (nevermind), careened out of control, killing its entire passenger load. That night, when 39 chickens didn’t arrive safely home, old farmer Johnson was in a sad fuss, but at least I was okay and till this day, I hold a good respect for the master Italian plumber. That is, until I happened upon this video a couple of days ago!

Guitar Rock Tour 2 in Review – Music To My Ears

guitar_rock_tour2_1

Well, I’ve finally done it. I have finally convinced myself to partake in the extravaganza known as “going on tour”. Having prior experience from Guitar Hero and seven years of electric guitar lessons, I found my skills adequate enough to undergo the journey of traveling to 10 diverse locations around the world and performing there. While my head may still be in the clouds, Guitar Rock Tour 2, by Gameloft is the highly anticipated sequel to one of my favorite games to ever hit the App Store.

Modern Combat: Sandstorm teaser trailer

Gameloft has dropped a teaser trailer for their upcoming game, Modern Combat: Sandstorm, an FPS (first person shooter) for the iPhone/iPod Touch. This Call of Duty 4-like FPS adds to Gameloft’s impressive list of upcoming games, which already includes Gangstar and NFL 2010. As you can see from the trailer, Sandstorm has some incredible visuals that seem to be on par with the early PS2 games. And if the game controls (among other things) hold their end of the bargain, this could be an FPS no fan would want to miss. With ngmoco’s livefire (another FPS we saw back in June at the WWDC 2009) also in the works, fans of the genre will certainly be in for an App Store treat.

Gameloft to release NFL 2010

nfl2010_preview1Gameloft is certainly no stranger to the App Store, having already released some gems that include Castle of Magic and Hero of Sparta. If you’re a sports fanatic though, they also have Let’s Golf, Real Soccer 2009 and Real Tennis 2009 to keep you busy while on the go. Now you can add Football (American Football that is for all you hardcore soccer fans out there) to the mix. Gameloft has just sent us word that they will be releasing NFL 2010 for your iPhone/iPod Touch towards the end of August. While details are scant at this time, we do know that this will be the first FULL football simulation at the App Store and more importantly, a fully licensed NFL game with all your favorite team and players. Judging from the screenshots alone, NFL 2010 looks to be coming around nicely and Gameloft may have another sports hit on their hands. More screenies after the jump!

Forget GTA – Gangstar Cometh

While not exactly a GTA-clone, Gangstar is similarly stationed – a violent game involving crime, money, and lots of blood. The above video is courtesy of a TouchArcade preview the iPhone ‘port’ of the game. I use quotation marks because, as you will see, this ain’t exactly 2006′s Gangstar.

Unlike its direct competitors at the App Store: Payback and Car Jack Streets, Gangstar is a fully 360 degree free-camera 3D game which makes great use of the iDevices 3D processor.

Castle Of Magic in Review – It’s Simply Magical!

Every console and every mobile device needs its own platformer. I grew up playing the Spyro and Crash Bandicoot series on my PS1 which, in my opinion, were two of greatest series the gaming world had ever seen back when the 32-bit console wars were heating up. This time, the spotlight isn’t on the Playstation or Dreamcast; its on the 32-bit iPhone and the war has been over a long while.
