Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus HD is a stylish first-person shooter for BlackBerry PlayBook which takes you to the heart of war in a variety of locations around the world.
Play solo or with buddies
Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus HD is highly playable and the single-player missions are many and varied. There's a real sense of tension in the game, something that all great war video games should have.
The single player game is long enough to take you a few hours to complete, but once that's done Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus HD is far from finished. That's because Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus HD has a capable online mode in which you get to take part in battles with others from around the world. Multiplayer only works over WiFi at the moment, but at least this means you're guaranteed a half decent connection, helping to cut out lag.
On your feet, soldier
The control system in Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus HD is fairly simple to master. You move around using the on-screen joystick and aim/look around by dragging your finger anywhere on the screen. There's an action button for shooting and you reload by touching the gun icon at the top. The great thing is that controls can be customized and you can define the layout of the buttons and joypads yourself.
Intense graphical experience
Graphically, Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus HD is one of the finest-looking PlayBook games you'll see. The lavish, realistic presentation is the closest thing you'll get to the look of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on a mobile device. The sound effects too are very authentic, and there's lots of speech in the game.
Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus HD is one of the most polished war games on the PlayBook and is a must for fans of Call of Duty-style shooters.
