The most immersive and impressive sci-fi FPS franchise on smartphones is back! Fight for mankind's survival in the greatest space shooter on mobile devices!

Four months have passed since Kal ruined the Volterites' plans by sabotaging their war factories, and stopping the extraction of the Judger Artifacts. However, following the assassination of President Folsom, the government surrendered the colonies to the Volterite Protectorate in order to prevent civil war amongst the increasingly pro-Volterite citizens.
Kal Wardin has been laying low since Folsoms death, but now he has received a desperate plea from Yelena to come to Earth. Once again, the hero must rise to save mankind!

An epic storyline: Humanity finally returns to Earth after years of exile! Fight in 10 immersive levels across the galaxy, from a war-torn Earth to a frozen Volterite city.
Multiple weapons and powers: Run, shoot, drive vehicles, and pilot a mech to defeat hordes of enemies.

Use Voice Chat to communicate with your friends in real time! (Voice Chat available only on iPad 2, the new iPad, and iPhone 4S.)
For the first time, multiple allies can jump inside the same vehicle and spread destruction on the battlefield.

I still can't decide whether to buy this for my iphone 4 or not, I keep seeing mixed reviews.

Is the multiplayer laggy on iPhone 4?

Go to the voice command and theres a command that says : "Lets camp here". I kept pressing it consecutively and it was soo funny and i was getting responses like : "wait for me".
I don't actually think the leaderboard is hacked.
When mc3 launched all the beta testers and internal gameloft testers were on it with rank 90 and massive xp, which they only had for testing of unlocking weapons and multiplayer in general.
They were all reset on day two of launch (i briefly held the no 1 spot) so probably same thing going on here.
I've checked the usual suspects for hacks and I haven't found any yet for the multiplayer, a couple for single player, but haven't tested them.
Just to be clear though, won't be testing any of the hacks that do come out because I hate the bxxtxxds. Even one or two of the well known crackers won't release an mutiplayer hack because they know it ruins the mutiplayer. Some do though.

In relation to the game in general, I'm having no problems with frame rate on iPhone 4s and iPad 2. I'm actually very happy with it. Think it's great visually and enjoying the gameplay in general.
Lag online is the only problem but that's down to the servers which mc3 was the same on launch before it sorted itself out after a couple of days.
Haven't noticed any draw distance problems but that's mainly because of the teleporting from lag probably.
The immersion in the mutiplayer is not quite up to mc3 but that's because mc3 has more to unlock I think.

I still am going to recommend that anybody wanting an fps should buy it.

iPhone 4 (non-s) owners, how is multiplayer, in terms of graphics lag?

If you buy this game to play on iPhone4, i think you will be dissapointed, because campaign is pretty playable, but multiplayer is pretty laggy with low framerate, but the big problem of multiplayer on iphone4 is the draw distance, because maps are very big, but iPhone4 cant render complete map, so the draw distance is ridiculous with a lot of fog, so you cant see some players, but if they are playing on iphone4s/ipad2/3 they can see you perfectly, and they will kill you

It's okay if you don't play that one map in the city, forget what its called. Its much better on my ipod after a reboot. Even in multiplayer, the framerate is pretty smooth.

yes in this map is very noticeable, but if you play any map on ipad2/3 you will see the big diference iphone4--ipad), because on ipad the gameplay is smooth and there is no problem with draw distance
