Critical Ops is a game that’s presented as the strongest successor to Counter-Strike. This particular title from Critical Force is available for Android, offering an experience that’s fully adapted to touchscreens. In fact, it’s considered to be one of the best shooter games available on the mobile market right now. We’re here to tell you the best way to install it and the minimum requirements for it to work well on any device.

What is Critical Ops?

Critical Ops is a first-person shooter that’s exclusively available for mobile devices. The game has a very simple concept: one team are the terrorists, and in the other, the anti-terrorists. Urban settings are the game’s go-to locations and in general, the goal of the terrorists is to plant a bomb while the others have to try to stop them or defuse it. Basically, the premise isn’t too different from Counter-Strike, a game that’s clearly the fundamental influence of this Critical Force title.

It’s a free-to-play title and the in-game currency is only used to get cosmetic advantages, so the game is completely enjoyable without having to invest any real money in it.

Critical Ops minimum requirements

The truth is that Critical Ops works on virtually any phone on the market right now. It doesn’t have particularly demanding requirements since it’s been many years since its release and the game has managed to maintain a fairly stable community, so they haven’t wanted to update the graphics to make sure everyone can enjoy it without a problem.

The minimum requirements for Critical Ops are as follows:

  • Operating system: Android 4.4 or higher, iOS 9.0 or higher.
  • Processor: Dual-core at 1.2 GHz
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • Graphics card: Adreno 306 or higher, Mali-400 MP or higher
  • Storage: at least 1 GB of free space on the device

As you might expect, the game will run faster on more powerful devices, which will give these players an advantage on the battlefield. In addition, it’s also a good idea to play it with a controller — this is almost a must if you want to defeat your enemies.

And one last tip — screens with a higher refresh rate will also allow you to see a greater number of frames on the screen.
