Great Game Overall.


Obviously a lot of this is my personal opinion and some of it is shared. Firstly over all nothing on the App Store compares to this as far as a tactical strategy shooter rpg. However I, like others have pointed out, would love to see Sidearms introduced and to see suppressors made to be more realistic. Now this is probably just me, but I would LOVE there to be a new in game purchasable Counter Terrorist unit, like either the Special Assault Team (Japan) or special forces from the Japan Ground Self Defense Force. And that would mean my favorite rifle, the Type 89 could be added, as well as the other Japanese weapons list. As for them as a team in game maybe High evasion, reaction, with moderate accuracy for the SAT being a police based force, and High evasion and accuracy, with moderate special forces of the JGSDF. This won't likely happen given both units are so unknown in the west but hey, you never know. Besides I think if they added them as pay for units, you could add new maps one in Japan and one in western China to help change up the rather plain maps. You got two desert based maps, two hotels, and one military base. The paid maps with the forest and Siberian base helped make the maps more varied but I'd still love to have at least one Asian styled map. Other then the sidearms and suppressors, there isn't anything that makes the game any less realistic and my other suggestions are just my personal desires. 4.5/5.

Best Tactical Game


This is pretty much the most fun game I have on my phone. I used to run CQB drills with two of my local SWAT teams so comparing the tactics of the real world against this is probably what makes it so enjoyable for me. Game plays smooth and is a decent challenge on insane mode.

Nice choice of modifications for weapons, wish there were at least handguns in the holsters if not ones available for purchase.

My biggest gripe has to be the available suppressors... There's a short length and a normal length. The lack of selection doesn't bother me much, it's what they do to your stats! They nerf your damage and your accuracy... I get the accuracy, but not the damage. How does an increased muzzle velocity DECREASE damage? I get that they're a big advantage, but if that's the issue their price needs to go up and the damage stat needs to be not nearly as affected. I've been impressed at the in game prices for attachments compared to real world prices, but the suppressors are no where close. They're around $300 in game... They are THOUSANDS of dollars in the real world.

I rate 4 stars, because it's a slick, well thought out game. Doesn't get 5, because of the handguns(lack of) and the suppressor shenanigans.

Best Combat Tactical Planning App


Best app, thank you for fixing the crashing issue! I still run this app off my iPhone 4, so please don't make it so my phone cant run the app. Thanks for fixing invisible soldiers.

You should add more guns and attachments and make 8 man teams but you can only use 4 team members at a time.
Guns that should be added:
G3A3, G33, FAL, M14, MP5, MP7, Uzi, AK-74su, AUG, SPAS-12, AA-12, Kriss Vector SMG, G36C, G36K, G36E, LA85, M60E3, M240 Bravo, Hk21, RPK-74
Hk53, and UMP-45

M1911a1, Glock 17,18,19,21,23,26, and 27, Smith&wesson revolvers,
US M9, Hk USP 45

Different types of frag grenades


Different size mags changes rate of fire

Bayonets for better damage at close range

Different Ammo types FMJ, JHP, JSP, AP changes lethality

Scopes increases range

Bipods increases accuracy when spends time stationary

Ability to change armor colors

Different length barrels short barrel means less accuracy and high rate of fire, long barrel is the opposite

I think you also need a map for endurance to see how many waves of attack your soldiers can take, kinda like COD zombies
And more maps would be cool too but weapons are better things to add.
