I might be Gameloft’s harshest critic, but I’m also their biggest fan. There is no denying that these guys make the best games for Android, but we have so far been disappointed that few have made their way to the official Android Market. I have a feeling that will change real soon, but in the mean time we just have to accept that you can only purchase Gameloft’s games via their online store.
Gameloft’s Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus just went live today and you can grab it now for only $4.99. This is the sequel to my all-time favorite, first person shooter game on Android and it surpasses the original in every way possible. I’ve only been playing it a couple of days and I’m not even half way through yet, but MC2 offers some of the best graphics and gameplay elements of any Android game to date.
If you are a first person shooter fan and own a Samsung Galaxy S, then Modern Combat 2 is a must buy. Other high-end phones like the Droid 2, Droid X, myTouch 4G, and G2 should play the game fine, but the best gameplay experience right now is on Samsung phones.
