Reviews are positive so far
Gaming’s biggest conference, E3, was held last week, and mobile games tended to take a backseat as they usually do. However, the earliest reviews of Call of Duty: Mobile seem to be good so far. The folks at Digital Trends said although most mobile games are simply not good, Call of Duty seems to be worth the hype. They didn’t feel like the game was watered down much for mobile devices as many games are when they’re ported from a console to mobile platforms.
Playing shooters on mobile devices also creates another set of potential problems with the controls, but apparently, Call of Duty has taken this into consideration. One of the control options involves using the left thumb to move and the right thumb to aim, while firing occurs automatically as soon as an enemy is in the crosshairs. The other set of controls includes a button to aim down the sights of the gun, and firing the gun only happens when it’s being aimed.
Wccftech found that the game is designed to be played in short segments rather than longer 20-minute matches. There are also plenty of weapon classes and variants and fan-favorite maps from the franchise. As far as monetization, Activision keeping quiet, so we will have to wait and see what that entails.
