After a few months of waiting, Modern Combat 3 has finally hit the Android Market. Adding another chapter to Gameloft's popular FPS war series, MC3 promises "the deepest and most intuitive FPS gameplay on smartphones," taking players through a 13-mission campaign from Los Angeles to Pakistan.

Besides plunging players into a variety of immersive environments, MC3 offers impressive multiplayer capabilities, allowing for up to 12 players in 6 maps and 7 different modes. In the single-player campaign, players will experience several gameplay modes including escort, destroy, helicopter, 4x4 chase, and others.

While Modern Combat 3 certainly sounds enticing, and looks to be extremely advanced in the graphics department, it's worth mentioning that the game requires 1.37GB of space, and some users are complaining that the game pushes in-app purchases, even after its relatively hefty $6.99 price tag.

If you're a fan of the Modern Combat series, MC3 certainly looks like it lives up to its name and is definitely worth checking out.

Thanks, Roger!

    Wow, if you paid 7 USD and yet the game offers in-app purchases (which means at some point winning would be too hard unless you purchase in-app credits) it's just plain stupid.

    On a separate note, I realized many games now offer free downloads but then you will need to purchase in-app to play further. Is it possible for the Android Market to mark apps with a In-App purchase / No In-App purchase feature? At least we know what to expect then.,...

      Yes.. I know that they will release it with in app purchuases + its real price Why? Because now almost no one buy any apps from the Android Market as they are available out in sites free apks.. So Gameloft did that because it also wants money so its all has to do with Android Market and the Android os which isnt secured like IOS.. Hope u got what i mean because im bad in english as im Egyptian

        I have to disagree with you. Being both ios user and android user, I have to say that it is equerry to find ios apps from other unofficial sources than android. So I still think that offering in app purchase after paying for 7$ is too much for a mobile game.

      Dude, MC3 is TTLY bomb
      If your good you don't need to buy more credits. Its nice being able to get sattelite scans all the time if you keep buying them. But you can earn those anyways with SKILLZ!

    Does it have native resolution on android tablets?

    Gameloft did worse for Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD. When I bought the game, there was no in-game purchase. Then, they released an update and added in game purchases. That's practically a bait-n-switch. Wish someone sues them for that these shitty tactics.

    Wouldn't be surprised if the update also tweaked the game to make it harder to win.

    I hate in game purchases since they are designed to make the game un-winnable and kill the entertainment value of the game.
