Chris Berrow & Leigh Milner review Call of Duty Mobile...


Leigh - Now the new Call of Duty Modern Warfare is coming next month. But if you can't wait that long then why not try. Call of Duty mobile. You get classic maps a great team deathmatch mode although the controls are a bit fiddly. It's basically the same maps that you've played before in previous Call of Duty games.

Chris - Although there are only five at the moment it's actually fine though for a free game as well. For a free download on your phone it was very good. The controls are fine. You know how it can be very difficult to do like a first person shooter on Your phone. Because there's no light analog sticks.

Leigh - I can't imagine how you would play that.

Chris - Well you sort of press onto the screen so the left half of your screen is moving around the right half of your screen is aiming but the hard bit comes when you've got to shoot and aim at the same time. But they've managed to do it reasonably well... then the new thing which I've never seen before is there's a Battle Royale mode which is very similar to Fortnite... we talked about Battle Royale modes for people who don't know what Battle Royale means. Have you ever seen The Hunger Games.

Leigh - Yeah.

Chris - It's basically like that. So you get a massive area is 100 people and the area gradually gets smaller forcing you to the middle and it's a huge massive Deathmatch and last person standing wins. I could see why people are addicted to it... in that mode you can go third person rather than first person so the camera can go over your shoulder which is I've never seen before in a COD game... so that's really good. It also got more downloads than Fortnite when it was released.

Leigh - I'm not surprised it's very popular.

Chris - You can stick a controller onto it and played through a controller but then what's the point of getting on your phone. I would say stick to deathmatch because the Battle Royale is is fine, but you know it's nothing special... but deathmatch is great.

Leigh - Call of Duty mobile is out now for mobile devices.
