Activision today released Call of Duty: Strike Team, its new combination first- and third-person shooter for iPhone and iPad. The game has a story campaign set in 2020, as well as a survival mode with leaderboards.

The most unique aspect of the $7 Strike Team's gameplay is the combination first- and third-person mode. The game starts as a top-down strategic shooter somewhat like Breach and Clear; but, at any time, gamers can take control of the soldiers and switch to first-person mode.

Gaming site Kotaku has a video of the first twelve minutes of gameplay, and Activision's launch video is below.

Call of Duty fans can take the action on-the-go with Call of Duty: Strike Team, available at launch exclusively for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Call of Duty: Strike Team is optimized for mobile and tablet glass mechanics, offering a choice of how to play: as players control a squad of up to four highly trained Strike Team members, each with customizable skills and loadouts, the in-game view can be seamlessly switched from classic first-person action, to a top-down, third-person perspective providing a full range of both action combat and tactical decision making.

The game requires iOS 6 and at least an iPhone 4S or iPad 2.

Call of Duty: Strike Team is available for $6.99 on iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]

Since when has COD been "skill based gameplay".

Take any of those whining COD kiddies off a Xbox Live server and drop them into a game of CounterStrike and they rage quit in 5 mins.

Yet another failed attempt at FPS on a mobile device. When will developers learn that you need either a) a keyboard and mouse b) Joypad - to play FPS games effectively and overall to enjoy them with the fact that you are more immersed and involved when playing with peripherals.

A dumbed down version of Call of Duty. How much dumber can you get?

Not recommended for iPhone. It's okay on the iPad mini.
