Modern Combat 5: Blackout is an orgy of simulated violence – short bursts of brutal, amoral slaying set to a soundtrack of bombastic Zimmer-esque strings and the metallic trill of shell casings on concrete.
You switch between urban shootouts, gunship massacres, sniper challenges, and aquatic escapes with the excitement of an impatient child opening Christmas presents.
One major change in the campaign of Blackout, compared to previous MC titles, is that the missions are a lot shorter. The average mission lasts 5-10 minutes, noticeably shorter than Zero Hour’s average mission length of 15-20 minutes.
Modern Combat 5: Blackout also introduces allies, characters who follow along with the player, often joining in during conflicts. In addition, the allies also revive the player the first time they die during a campaign mission.
Like Zero Hour, the campaign missions in Modern Combat 5: Blackout vary in style. The game is primarily a first person shooter, but missions include controlling turrets on boats, helicopters, and even drones.
