Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized (DS)
The third installment of the DS Call of Duty ports. You're looking for what appears to be a nuclear device. But can the DS withstand Mobilized?
Technical Impossibility: The size of the levels, the amount of people on screen and the 3D models all being run at the same time throughout the game is a marvel for the Nintendo DS.
Loads of Content: There's several bonus modes, challenges, and collectibles throughout Mobilized. Finding and beating each one will take hours of your time.
Low-Poly Perspective: While the technical prowess of Mobilized is commendable on every level, we have to draw attention to the actual models and textures. Basically, they look pretty bad. They do their job, but not very well.
Hand-Breaking Controls: For most of the people playing Mobilized, this is gonna hurt. After a level or two, your hand will be hurting. Be sure to take regular breaks.
You Might Never Play Multiplayer: Multiplayer, while good and balanced, is hard to actually get into it over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and without five other players with five other DS consoles and cards, you're not going to get the full multiplayer experience.
While the DS version of Call of Duty delivers gameplay wise, there are always a few niggles to deal with here and there, but never anything game-breaking. If you can look over the faults of this game, you can enjoy a half-decent DS shooter experience.
