    Gameloft: Legally plagiarizing since 1999.

      Fracture and Backfire, look exactly the same as two maps in CoD: Black Ops II

      stop rushing games. it takes time to make quality games.

        Which is exactly why I’ve grown to dislike games like Call Of Duty and Fifa. We’ve grown to expect new games every year without taking into account that in order to produce something truly revolutionary it takes time. Speaking for myself here and I don’t exactly know the entire game market but for me Gran Turismo is a brilliant game. You may wonder what Gran Turismo has to do with iOS and the answer to that is nothing! When that game was being made though I do not know exactly how long it took but I think it took something like five years to make…

        It reminds me of AC 3, the rush turned a high quality franchise into a generic buggy shitty game.

    n ice game but too hard to control with touch screen we need an IOS controller pad

  • ozonostudio

    the map with the trains looks like a MW3 map right?

  • Andre Grey

    Yup a complete copy of call of duty
