Customer Reviews


Lynnette tully, how could be an 'updated' version of MC3 when this is the first of the series? I just wanted to leave feedback just for that. How can a person be 'that' stupid? Obviously the graphics wont be as good as MC3 (the newest in the series)

I do want to say though, that this is a pretty good game. The graphics arent as good as MC3 but they are still pretty good. Most gamers of this generation are dumb and only concntrate on the graphics. Its the content that matters. Although i personally think the price sould be lowered to 3 bucks (because its been out for quite a while) its not terribly bad as it is.

Really, my ONLY complain in this game, MC2 and MC3 is the lack of control options. I require the use of 'tap to shoot' feature, and although this game kinda has it, its not quite good. In this game, to shoot with the 'tap to shoot' feature, you need to DOUBLE tap to shoot. Why?

I play games on my ipad with one arm (lost one) and NEED full control customization. If updated with control customization, this deserves 5 stars

Fix or Money Back

Let me start off by saying I bought this game on accident. Then I go into the game, which due to the way it aged should be more like $3 rather than $5. Then I start playing and the audio glitches and so after every spoken sentence the last word gets repeated over and over again and never stops, so all I hear is "Okay-okay-okay-okay-okay-okay-okay" non stop while I also hear "Left and right-left and right-left and right" non stop and it happens after almost every sentence so before you know it all you hear is a jumble of repeated words and nothing else. PLEASE FIX OR GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK. I am playing on IPad Mini.

Awesome game

Modern Combat Sandstorm HD is a awesome game but it needs some patches or updates to fix the glitch on every mission you start the characters that talk to you before the mission even starts there last word just repeats and repeats why you are in the mission and it gets very annoying to hear during the whole mission. so would you please fix that it would nice of you to do that thanks!!!
