    While I was on GameLoft's site today (to get the free HD Golf Game), I noticed this:

    As far as I knew, Modern Combat wasn't working for anyone on the EVO, which would make the section of their site in my screenshot very misleading. I decided to contact GameLoft directly to get a comment on the game's compatibility with our device, and this was their response:


    As with all things, this should be taken with a grain of salt, but then again, it never hurts to hope!

    I was wondering why mine wasn't working. Makes sense now.

    Thanks for the info.

    Does anyone think this will run well on our phones? Do far, the 3d games I have are pretty laggy and slow (fifa, real soccer, let's golf...) That's my only big disappointment with this phone. While 2d games run okay, its 3d games run way less than the 30 fps cap. Not saying an iPhone is better, but at least they can run higher textured games butter smooth at 60 fps. I wish developers would spend the time to get 3d Android games correctly because the Gpu is only supposed to be slightly slower than the iPhone.

    I think once they (or someone) puts out a patch for the 30fps issue- things will get much better. At least- that's what I think.

    A lot of ps3 and xbox 360 games are capped at 30fps.

    you might wanna restart your phone or kill all your task when your about to play. Mine would be laggy but once i started doing that they run perfect. i have both real soccer and lets golf

    probably frees up all the memory for the game

    I restart my phone every couple of days just out of habit. I use sytem panel to monitor my CPU and Memory usage. I usually have about 100 mb of free ram before I start the game, so I'm assuming that's enough for a mobile game. How much do you have? I can try and kill some tasks to match your free ram to see if it runs the same.

    Real Soccer and lets golf actually perform the best out of Android 3D games, so they are playable. It's just that the same game runs about 5X to 10X smoother with better graphics on an iPhone 3GS (my old phone). And the iPhone 3GS is only supposed to be something like 10% faster than the snapdragon GPU. This means the programming is somehow inefficient on Android, and my only guess is that it takes time and money that developers aren't willing to spend yet on our platform.

    True, but even uncapped I'm not breaking 15 fps in Nena.

    without root????


    i have real soccer on both my ipod touch and evo. they run the same. evo is a little better to play on cause of the size of the screen

    i have 3dgolf on evo, ipod touch, and my old pre. it runs best on the pre followed by touch and evo closely.

    I think these are the problems as to why the iPhone has better games.

    Better GPU
    Larger Marketshare (Devs make more money on iPhones)
    Objective C (From what I read, better than Java for games)
    Android Fragmentation

    Then add in the 30 FPS cap on the EVO for good measure. Now you can see all of the hoops a developer would have to jump through. It would be easier for them just to make an iPhone game which would have huge sales.

    Well, it's a Gameloft game, so no purchase here. They can have my business when they stop their ridiculous DRM/no-market business scheme.

    I forgot another limitation of the Android platform is memory allocation. Android does not allow you to install apps on the SD card.

    Modern Combat is over 200mb, a few games of that size is not going to fit on an EVO.

    A) That's not true. Google Apps2SD.

    B) All Gameloft games store the bulk of their data in the \Gameloft\games\<game name>\ folder on the SD card by default.

    I asked them why the game wasn't released on 20th as their email responses had suggested, and this was their reply:

    Don't hold your breath.
