Activision brings down the pricing of Call Of Duty: Strike Team to $2.99 for the holidays

Call Of Duty: Strike Team

Call Of Duty: Strike TeamActivision is known for massive PC and console titles like Tony Hawk series, Marvel superheroes and more popularly the Call Of Duty series of games. The developer launched Call Of Duty: Strike Team on the Google Play Store some time ago with a steep price tag, which was justified given the gameplay and performance it offered. However, Activision has decided to offer a nice little treat for its fans by slashing the price of this title,  bringing it down to $2.99 (previously $6.99).

Along with the price cut, Activision has also expanded the number of devices that the game is compatible with. The new compatibility list is a bit small but it includes the likes of the Sony Xperia Z, Xperia S, the LG Nexus 5, Samsung Nexus 10 tablet as well as the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Note II phablets.

The game is a hefty 1.9GB in size, so make sure you have some storage cleared up on your smartphone before purchasing the game, especially if you own a Nexus device. Activision will hold this discount until February 1 2014 according to the Google Play listing. Watch the video teaser of the game below to know how the game functions.

Top 4 Android Games Of 2012

Plague Inc

I can’t even begin to list how many great games were released for Android this year! We’ve seen outstanding work from Rovio with Angry Birds: Star Wars, Gameloft has done an outstanding job with Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour and Asphalt 7. The amount of indie developers that have submitted games to the Google Play Store have also been outstanding. 2013 is bound to bring more awesome games now that Ouya development kits have been sent out, but regardless, here’s my top 4 Android games of the year!

Plague Inc — Plague Inc is easily one of the best strategy games of the year. Miniclip did a fantastic job developing it. The user creates his/her own disease and has a goal to spread it all throughout the world. You can either have it take the world by storm or your disease can be the Silent Assassin, so to speak. Regardless of which route you take, the entire world needs to be infected (and possibly killed off) before scientists and health professionals are able to find a cure. The game gets more difficult as countries devote their money to the cure and put it on their priority lists. It is a free game, but if you want all of the features your going to have to give Miniclip $9.99. It’s a steep price for an Android game, but well worth the money.

Angry Birds: Star Wars — This was easily one of the most anticipated Android games of the year. Finland-based company Rovio set out to unify Star Wars into their popular Angry Birds franchise. It has to be the best idea the company has ever had, especially since they incorporated some features you can find in Angry Birds: Space. Like most Angry Birds games, you can get it for free with ads, or you can pay for it without ads. On top of that, there is a set of “Path of the Jedi” missions that will also cost you some extra cash.

Steam — While this isn’t a game, it is a outstanding platform for you to browse games and remotely install them on your laptop at home. Steam is also great to have when its developer, Valve, starts running holiday sales. That way you can always have access to Steam if you have to go somewhere. The best part: you won’t have to miss the sale for a single moment. Albeit that does depend if you’re in an accursed meeting. You kinda have to pay attention in those.

Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour — I know, I know, this should probably be at the top of the list. The only thing is, I haven’t gotten to play it very much due to a lack of time. From what I have played thus far though, Modern Combat 4 is easily the best first-person shooter on the Google Play Store. To sum it up, it’s essentially a dumbed down version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for Android. I’ll make sure to do a full review to give my full opinion at a later date.

Make sure to list some Android games that were your favorite this past year in the comments section below!

Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies Review

Available On: Android, iOS

Price: $6.99

Download: Google Play | iTunes

If you’ve been one of the many players enthralling themselves with Black Ops II, you may just want to take a look at Glu Mobile’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies game for Android and iOS devices. Although it won’t be the same experience as on the big screen, but if you’re on the go and want to beat up some zombies, this may just be a title that you would want to check out. Of course, that is on the basis that you are willing to shell out a good $7 for this game. At that point you have to decide for yourself if its worth it or not.

One of the cool things about this specific game is that you have the option or you can play with up to 4 different plays through a Wi-Fi connection. How much more fun can obliterating zombies get than playing with your friends? As far as Call of Duty on mobile device goes, I think this one by Glu Mobile is the best out there. The Call of Duty rip-offs that Gameloft makes are abysmal compared to what this has to offer. Regardless of that, Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies has been a well received game all around the world wide web.

For a tablet experience, I thought the controls and gameplay were extraordinary. I still found myself wanting to use a controller for the game though, but that may just because I am used to playing first-person shooters with a controller or mouse and keyboard even. Regardless, the controls were very smooth to use and easy to learn. There wasn’t a huge learning curve at all, which a lot of games have, specifically a lot of Gameloft’s and some of Glu Mobile’s other titles.

Killing zombies is extremely fun, especially when the graphics are very well done. Glu Mobile has really outdone themselves with the graphics. While they may not be as detailed as some of the more recent releases like Wild Blood, they did really outdo themselves in this case. Models in the game are extremely detailed, especially on the zombies, which is something that I would think all zombie killing lovers would adore.

One of the things I like most about Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies is the variety of weapons that you are given. I know regular Call of Duty games have tons of weapons to choose from, but I didn’t expect to have a massive array of weapons to choose from in a mobile version of Call of Duty.

Overall, Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies is a wonderful game. The pricing is a bit questionable though. It really all comes down to the fact that you think it it was worth it. You could spend $1000 on a tablet and have a great time with it without even a thought of returning it. Someone else could spend that same $1000 and return it within days because they thought it was crummy.

For me, Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies is a worthy purchase, and I have not yet regretted it.

Activision’s Call Of Duty Coming To The Android Tablet Screen?

Activision’s Product Director, Noah Heller, has confirmed to T3.com that a tablet version of Call Of Duty Elite is coming for both Android tablets and the iPad.

“We’re working on the tablet app right now, I can’t tell you much about it but what I can tell you is that it will be a truly native, customised application for the tablet, it’s not just a simple port.” Heller said in an interview with T3.

It seems from what we’ve gathered that Activision is developing it’s own version for the tablets. As Heller obviously confirmed by saying it wasn’t just going to be a simple port. He also eluded to the fact that there may be heat maps in the tablet game play.

The Call of Duty Elite mobile app for Android smartphones and iPhones has already topped the 2 million download threshold. We’re hoping to see a tablet version soon. According to Heller that tablet version will work seamlessly with the Elite experience on PC, Mac and Xbox.
