Better than Clash Of Clans

This is technically clash of clans but call of duty thrown into the mix. The violence is mild if not tame compared to console call of duties. You can buy consumables to progress faster but you can achieve alot without them. This features a clan system which does mean strangers can message you but someone with common sense can ignore it or delete the messages or keep off clans all together. Mature 10 years olds and over can handle this game.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

By combining the gameplay of strategy games with elements from the titular series of shooters, this strategy game may appeal to fans of both. In Call of Duty: Heroes, you not only get to build bases, train soldiers, and attack other bases and soldiers, but you also get to do so with some of your favorite characters and attack vehicles from such Call of Duty installments as the Modern Warfare trilogy, Black Ops II, and Infinite Warfare series. But while this game is strategic, and thus your time is largely spent telling your troops what to do, there are some elements of action games, such as briefly controlling the gun on a helicopter gunship. Along with a series of single-player missions, the game also lets you battle other people online, as well as engage in a series of challenge missions or, if you're up for it, fight for survival in a zombie apocalypse.

Being eaten by the living-impaired isn't the only bummer about this game, though. Fans of such similar games as Clash of Clans might feel this doesn't offer anything new. Conversely, fans of the shooters may not enjoy the lack of hands-on action or how you sometimes have to wait for structures to be built or troops to be trained. But if you love the Call of Duty series and Clash of Clans-esque strategy games, Call of Duty: Heroes could be your next strategic obsession.
