It's pretty crazy to look at where we are with mobile games right now. Just a few short years ago, the most graphically impressive games we could get on our handsets were really anything but impressive. Now, we have games like Shadowgun, Dead Trigger, and Horn that take mobile gaming to a level that was good enough for the PC not all that long ago.

Gameloft has just released the trailer for Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, which looks like it will raise the bar for mobile graphics even higher. Take a look.

Impressive, no? While there's no definitive date just yet, MC4 should be available sometime this fall.

    Sadly, The iPhone 5 Will Run This Twice As Good As My Lousy One X *Sniff*

      Only because GameLoft is full of bull shit

      • Luis Augusto Fretes Cuevas

        Not really. The GPU on the iPhone 5 is way more powerful than what's available on any Android smartphone. THIS IS A FACT, don't downgrade me for stating a hardware fact.

          I'm not saying you are wrong or trying to get into an arguement, but you have to back that up. I really want to know know!

        • Luis Augusto Fretes Cuevas

          Fanboyism is really sad. I prefer Android to iOS, but why should that imply that the GPU on Android smartphones isn't inferior to the GPU on the iPhone?. That the iPhone has a much better GPU is a fact.

    Great game ruined by low poly models

      Dude. Level of effects is amazing. As for Details and High poly modeling. It rivals PC games. Trumps way past PS2. But with the power currently available - High poly is not an option on mobile devices. I am amazed that they even managed this high.

        Have you ever seen dead trigger? Look at the high Polly models, everything is possible

        • http://www.facebook.com/Anucool Anukool Karvir

          Well it seems that Level of effects replaces the High poly models. Maybe they release a different version for Tegra.

        • GraveUypo

          dead trigger zombie models are pretty low poly too, and the whole game happens indoors / corridors. you can't compare the two of them. this just looks flat out better than dead trigger, and it's probably a lot more demanding on hardware too. i'm pretty sure it has way more polygons per frame too.

    Another boring ripoff by Gameloft

    • Knlegend1

      Rip off of who, activision? You gotta understand this is mobile gaming. Since Activision doesn't want the money then hell I'd take it too.

  • the truth

    Lol..Gameloft? No thanks..they will find a way to screw it up.

    You should probably take care that your minds are not blown too often

    Impressive...

    Finally, real-time shadows are here from Gameloft. Sadly, I'd have the play this on my iPad 2 because Gameloft doesn't support my Android tablet AT ALL.

    • http://www.facebook.com/Anucool Anukool Karvir

      I will also be getting this on my father's iPad as i dont personally buy apple products.
      But I hate the on screen buttons which eat my screen and come in way when playing games on Android tabs. So i think I might have to get an iPad for gaming purpose.

      • Himmat Singh

        Over the past month, I have played many games on the iPad - Wild Blood, Lili, FIFA 13, God of Blades, Trigger Fist - and the experience is amazing!! The iPad 2 really puts my A510 to shame. No stutterings, no force closes.
        The A510 is still my go-to tablet, but for gaming I am really looking at my iPad 2. Frankly speaking, the iPad 2 is the best gaming tablet overall, better than the iPad 3 and Tegra 3 tablets.

          Comeon any major player with high resolution tab with capacitive physical keys please.

  • Tarek El-Ghazaly

    This is what Cod on the Vita should have looked like...

  • http://www.facebook.com/Anucool Anukool Karvir

    Sadly I have to say. With on screen buttons. Gaming on android, especially tablets has been ruined. I hate that black bar at bottom/side. And it was supposed to reduce the Bezel on which the button were located. Its ok in phones but in tablets? Nexus 7 has a 1 inch bezel at both top and bottom. Easy to fit 1 cm wide strip of physical buttons in.(capacitive buttons)

  • Mono

    I want to see this on OUYA >:]

  • gadgetfreaksta

    Gameloft rules!

  • master94

    How long till Smartphones rival consoles. I cant wait.

    Right, so Gameloft is making some graphically impressive games no? Well then this means it will probably lag like a snail on my iPod touch. Oh and, when is Gameloft gonna focus on gameplay, which is what its games tend to lack? And customer-service? Anti-hacking? Oh right, because we customers are only graphic hungry people.
