Call of Duty Heroes – Strategy Game at its Best


The first ever Call of Duty game was a very good video game. And so is that second one. Actually back in the day that two titles started what COD has become in the recent years. And when I was a kid, not playing these titles was a definite blow to my emotional development. Like, when you’re around 8  years of age, you don’t really have any experience with disappointment. I mean, what’s the worst thing that could happen? Early bedtime?  Like, that’s tragedy, when you’re 8. So imagine how I felt when my parents, when both of them started telling me to stop playing Call of Duty because it is too violent with all those killing and blood, not to mention the guns.

Thanks a lot to my parents. Perhaps, they just want the best out of my childhood. So I went oh, probably 10years without playing any of Activision’s Call of Duty game again. I’m serious, it’s not funny, Activision. So when I saw this new game Call of Duty Heroes which is basically not the usual violent looking first-person shooter game, well, I reevaluated my decision of not playing COD games.  Listen, I may have a lot of personal problems, but I’m a totally in love when it comes to strategy games on mobile devices nowadays. So I decided to give this game a shot in the hope of making a good memory in this new era of Activision game.

It wasn’t very long until I realized something wasn’t right. Because something was right. This wasn’t that crushing blow to my emotional development that I remembered. This was something good. Something decent. Something pure. This was new Call of Duty Heroes game. And never has one word made such a difference. So I had no idea this game even existed. That’s partially because of where I live, partially because I made a life decision to ignore these game titles. But as it turns out, while Activision ruined our childhood here in the States, things were different in Europe. And Japan, too. Because they didn’t get the same treatment as we did.  Like, legitimately. This is seriously one of the best base building games I’ve ever played on my iPad.

I’m not a hardcore gamer but I’ve never been more eager of a mobile game in my life. I would’ve given anything to have this game played every time I have a spare time.  My psychiatrist would’ve appreciated it, too. So where Activision’s game  is a worthless piece of slime, ignorant disgusting blob, with a weak electrochemical bond, this is like, a well-designed video game can be downloaded at their site. Imagine that.  You can tell some genuine effort went into this. I mean, there are lots of games on the same genre today that don’t capture their players’ attention as much as this game does. So the detail is great, the sprites are adorable and it’s got an awesome soundtrack, which actually includes music from those Call of Duty games we loved. And the thing that really sets it apart is that it plays as sharp in 3D as it looks. In fact, the central gameplay mechanic might be the game’s greatest achievement.

It’s one of those games that embraced the limitations of simple controllers to deliver gameplay that was precise, fast and addictive. Gameplay that still holds up, too. In fact, this Call of Duty Heroes game kind of reminds me of Clash of Clans but with a much better overall experience. And that’s kind of insane. I guess if I have any complaints some of the enemies are a bit of a stretch. And some of the levels feel a bit long which is understandable, since there’s not many. For those playing this game right now, consider yourselves lucky. How I wish I was have known this game earlier. Nevertheless, the game bring some memories and gamers don’t really get old, so I will be brutally honest of saying — I am loving this game!
