Lots of work has gone into Modern Combat 5 and the attention to detail is apparent: characters look detailed and fluid in their animations and levels are concise enough that they don't appear repetitive. This isn't on par with console graphics, but it's still top of the line for device games.Sound in the game is also high-quality. The guns have diverse sounds and other sound effects, such as tires screeching, sound believable. There's also hammy but solid voice acting that isn't normally found in mobile games.
