Modern Combat 5: Blackout - Análisis
The Modern Combat 5 proposal leads us to manage Caydan Phoenix, a former member of the US Marine Corps in its fight against the World Liberation Army, which is terrorizing the entire world. At first he is sent to Venice as a member of special forces sent by Gilman Security. During the adventure we will have the invaluable help at all times of Sophie "Roux" Daviau, her commander. This will give clear instructions to our protagonist who will also serve as a tutorial for the game.
Modern Combat 5: Blackout is divided into five chapters that cover locations such as Venice, Tokyo or San Marcos . Each of them, except the first, has four small phases of about 10 minutes maximum duration that will serve as Campaign mode in this Gameloft shooter. A very interesting option is that the video game only downloads the first and second chapter from the beginning so that we can later select which chapter we want to download, thus saving space on our mobile device. In addition to this Campaign mode, the complete online multiplayer mode or the events that Gameloft will soon perform in the game could not be missed either.
In each mission we are given the opportunity to earn stars by completing the different requirements they propose. There are always 3 and they range from eliminating certain adversaries, rescuing hostages or even shooting cowardly enemies fleeing our bullets. These stars also apply to Special Operations, a game mode for a player in which, as a general rule, we are urged not to leave any enemy standing in one of the previously visited scenarios. Within the Campaign mode we can also see certain specific missions for multiplayer where, once again, we are proposed to meet certain objectives. However on this occasion Gameloft has decided that the missions have a short duration to keep the player somewhat less tense than usual and enjoy even more the action that accompanies the game. As a decision it is not all bad but it is striking that some of these only last just five minutes with simple route scenarios.
Modern Combat 5: Blackout has on this occasion four new classes of characters to choose between Soldier, Tracker, Sniper and Gunner. The first two will be available for use from practically the first minute while the remaining ones will have to raise the level of our character to unlock them. Each one has its characteristics. For example, the Tracker will reveal to the members of his platoon the position of the enemies while the Gunner will be nourished by powerful weapons and will have the characteristic of being able to heal himself. As in its predecessor, the weapons will be unlocked over time according to certain requirements and will be fully customizable. The drones will once again have their particular role as they have added a couple more to the offer we knew.
If there is one thing to highlight and it has made us fall in love with IGN Spain, it is the impressive multiplayer mode that Modern Combat 5: Blackout treasures among its bytes. Once again Gameloft has put all the meat on the grill and offers us an incredible online experience loaded with content that will increase the duration of the game to infinity and beyond. All against All, Vip, Battle of Squads, Capture the Flag or Team Battle will be the modalities that this small video game includes but great in fun.
The most interesting (although already known) is undoubtedly the VIP mode, a game mode that forces us to protect our VIP member from the opponent while we try to bite the ground to the opposite. In Battle of Platoons we will need to join a Platoon (Clan) to play with them and fight against other clans. To communicate with our friends, Platoon or other users it is possible to use the new chat that also works instantaneously and which in turn allows us to add to our list of friends those present as well as send private. In short, 3-on-3 battles that work smoothly, without any lag (at least tried so far), fast and that do not detract from the game's performance at any time.
The graphic improvements are evident and exploit the possibilities of the different mobile devices to the fullest . In fact and as we have already said, the video game is surely the second most powerful fps right now in laptops behind PS Vita's Killzone Mercenary. In the analysis we have used an iPhone 5S and the truth is that the game has not petardeado in any single moment and we can assure you that there are scenes in which it would not have been surprising that their frames fell below normal. For example at the beginning of the game there is a chase of the most interesting where we see a very detailed water, great stages, explosions and several types of enemies, all at the same time. We do know that the Modern Combat 5: Blackout graphic options will adapt to the machine we play with . For example on a somewhat more just Android device, the title will not have water splashes or a better fire effect in the barrel of our weapons. The sound aspect is exquisite and although it is not dubbed into Spanish, it has different voices for its characters, several languages according to the location we visit and a more than remarkable audio quality. Of course, the game is perfectly translated into our language. Musically nothing to highlight or reproach. Basically the game has a few melodies that go completely unnoticed in pursuit of direct action.

Alessandro "Zampa" ZampiniModern Combat 5 - Review
You may disagree with some of his policies on free to play, you may not have appreciated the fact that in the past he has drawn too freely on historical series,...
The productive values that the company puts into play every time we talk about one of its main series are impressive, and it is also clear from the fact that it is one of the few games for smartphones and tablets that has a life cycle very similar to those production for PC or console, complete with announcement, previews, field tests and finally global distribution, which is followed, at least in this case, usually more than positive opinions.
The structure of the game is instead intelligent and well-made, divided into different hubs composed of different types of missions, which must be completed in order to move on to the next picture. The missions can be linked to the main plot or be more Spec-Ops style, in which you have to cover someone's flight, for example, rather than resist indefinitely until the arrival of the cavalry. As an alternative to these missions you can dedicate yourself to multiplayer events, which will contribute in a similar way to passing the level.
In short, the structure, as well as the visual impact and the production level, has nothing to envy to the console counterparts, and it is easy to understand, even after a few minutes of play, how much Gameloft invests in Modern Combat and how easily this is identifiable as the a yardstick of this kind in a mobile environment. From a graphic point of view, in fact, we find ourselves in front of a small jewel, capable of making us forget in a few moments that we are playing it on a tablet or mobile phone. The quality of the animations and settings is impressive, as is the level of detail of all five different environments that make up the story, and it is clear how much this time Gameloft wanted to insist on a series of special effects, such as the sections below water, the explosions and the particle effects, which perhaps were previously left in the background. Of course, the limits of the machine are evident, and in some passages (such as the collapses of buildings, for example) the return to reality is all too abrupt for the objectives that the developer has set himself, but the care put into the staging and in the realization it is however commendable, and raises the bar for rivals.
To be reviewed, then, was also the character evolution system, which is now more organic and above all brings together both online and offline progress. The in-game currency disappears (ah, the game is also free from purchases in the app) in favor of the experience points, linked both to the weapon that is being used, for which some specific features can be unlocked, and to the character's rank, which instead it allows you to unlock new, more general classes and improvements. Everything you do within the level gives you experience points, and obviously the more elaborate the actions, such as multiple kills or headshots, the faster you level up.
The multiplayer component, available only via wi-fi, allows six-on-six games in different classic modes, including capturing the flag, in teams, all against and all so on. The practically zero matchmaking system causes some problems in the creation of the lobby, but fortunately it is something that Gameloft can easily remedy. About connection: given the continuous and common progression to the multiplayer of the character, to play you must always be equipped with an active data connection, otherwise it will be impossible to access even the single player mode.
Finally, let's talk about controls, perhaps the most delicate topic for this genre of games. First of all we must start from the assumption that on smartphones or tablets, given the lack of physical keys, it is absolutely impossible to have the same feeling or precision of the mouse and keyboard or pad, which is why Gameloft cannot be blamed if every once in a while the fire button slips or you lose, since the developers have done everything to insert as many control schemes as possible, moreover with a fair degree of customization. Finding the perfect balance between the difficulty of aiming and the massive presence of facilitations (such as assisted aiming) is not easy, but the compromise reached with Modern Combat 5 seems more than satisfactory, even if perhaps something more could have been done on the front of the balance of artificial intelligence, which lives more than ups and downs than a coherent (and growing) level of difficulty.
I played Modern Combat 5 thanks to a code sent by Gameloft, on iPhone 5s and iPad Mini, finding the phone much more comfortable than the tablet. The story ends in seven or eight hours, more than enough to justify the expense, while I had some difficulty finding balanced multiplayer games.
