Most mobile game adaptations of high profile movies fail to impress, and fortunately Men In Black 3 is not one of them. For something I had waited ten years for, the movie was great and hence expectations of the game was high too. Men in Black 3 lives up to its reputation and is indeed an extremely engaging game.

The first impression was already more than enough to prove how epic the game was going to be. Upon the first boot up of the game, Men in Black 3 proceeds to download game files and while that happens, a cut scene or slideshow of sorts plays and draws the player into the mysterious realm of the Men In Black.

In Men in Black 3, players are sent on various tasks or missions that non-playable characters send them on. However, these tasks can happen concurrently and might end up quite confusing. Players can also build facilities such as an armory, Sims style. To add even more fun and action, players can also engage in combat with opposing aliens although the combat system does come across as a little cheesy where by it appears to be real time combat but is in actual fact turn based and players have no means to dodge shots. In short, combat in Men in Black 3 is basically a test of who can outlast the most shots.

Although a great game, the irritating part of Men in Black 3 lies in the fact that every action consumes energy and your energy source is finite albeit rechargeable.

For a free app, I must say that everyone should give Men in Black 3 a shot. While the game is rather confusing at first, for such a complex game this is expected and Men in Black 3 proves to be an extremely addictive adventure.

Quick Take

Learning Curve:High. Game is confusing at the start.

Who Is It For:Fans of the MIB franchise.
