Call of Duty: Heroes Review
You like Call of Duty? You like Clash of Clans? This is the game for you.
You got your Call of Duty in my Clash of Clans! That's basically the premise of Activision's new mobile game Call of Duty: Heroes. Although the game is a bit derivative, there is plenty of fun to be had here.
For fans of the Call of Duty series, the game has plenty of homages and characters returning. The gameplay is fun, and varied between troop management and resource collection. There are plenty of upgrades and different troops to keep things interesting as each building and troop type has its own strengths and weakness to play out. The Alliance system in which other players can come to your aid is actually a useful way to include social interaction without making it feel forced.
Although there are quite a bit of Call of Duty references, players aren't going to find much military realism here. Ranks like âLieutenant Corporalâ and the like take some of the immersion of playing and it would have been nice to see a little more care given to the details. There are also the typical freemium cliches such as premium currency used to speed up timers that can be annoying, especially for a game that seems to try to ramp the action level up.
Call of Duty: Heroes is a fun alternative to those who love Clash of Clans and the like. Unfortunately, for Call of Duty fans, the experience isn't very action packed due to the use of timers. However, if you're looking for a game to only play for 5 to 10 minutes at a time on the go, you could do a lot worse.
