Modern Combat 5: Blackout

The fifth installment of one of the most popular shooter games for Android has to be near the top of our list, and that's Modern Combat 5: Blackout developed by Gameloft. It's also completely free now after dropping the $4.99 price tag. It does rely a lot on an internet connection though. 

MC5 features some of the best graphics to date on mobile, stunning gameplay, tons of action, and plenty of grenades to throw around. With Modern Combat you get an excellent and exciting fast-faced storyline for campaign mode where the world is on the brink of anarcy, an excellent multiplayer mode where you can build your own squad of killers, and five different classes you can level up to.

The Spec-Ops missions are extremely fun, and to make this free game even better it has some of the best graphics, music, and voice actors for all the roles making it a very life-life and realistic console game for mobile devices. This is a must try, especially if you have a game controller, Android TV, or an NVIDIA Shield device.
