best 3d games for android
Mobile gaming has improved by leaps and bounds over the last half a decade. Where once we had only a few options and they were essentially Angry Birds or Solitaire, we now have giant, full games with amazing graphics. Since mobile devices don’t have 3D screens (like the Nintendo 3DS), there are no truly 3D games for Android. Instead, we decided to look at the best 3D games that had 3D graphics. We hope you enjoy them!

asphalt 8 airborne best 3D games for androidAsphalt 8: Airborne

The game itself has a ton of features, including a campaign mode with over 300 events to race, an online multiplayer mode, and there is even a comprehensive damage system so you feel like you’re managing an actual car. It’s free with in-app purchases which is a bit of a bummer, but the game is beautiful and fun.

The game takes place on 3D maps that you must traverse while avoiding tons of flak and bullets being fired at you. The game also comes with leaderboards, 15 total maps, 12 battle modes, abilities to help you out, and even companion droids to help in the fight. The price is a little steep but there are no in-app purchases.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas best 3d games for androidGrand Theft Auto: San Andreas

[Price: $6.99]
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the most recent release of the GTA series for mobile and this one is pretty phenomenal. There are dozens of hours of game play, hundreds of missions and side quests to do, and the controls on touch screens aren’t half bad once you get used to them. The game also supports cloud saving, graphics settings, and Bluetooth/USB game pad support. It’s about as much as you can possibly ask for on mobile right now and the price tag isn’t half bad.

Minecraft Pocket Edition best 3d games for androidMinecraft: Pocket Edition

[Price: $6.99]
Minecraft: Pocket Edition is most things you may love about Minecraft wrapped up in a version that can be played on mobile. You can kill mobs, build things, collect resources, and create whatever it is you want to create. Updates from late 2015 have also added Redstone which only adds to the possibilities. It’s a great game for kids or adults and it really allows you to get your creative juices flowing. Best of all, there are no in-app purchases.

Modern Combat 5 Blackout best 3d games for androidModern Combat 5: Blackout

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Modern Combat 5: Blackout is pretty much the de facto title for those wanting to play a good FPS on Android. The controls are above average, the graphics are pretty good, and there are a ton of things to do. There is a campaign mode along with online multiplayer with a leveling system that encompasses both types of game play. You’ll also get to choose between six different classes, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. It’s freemium which is the worst part of this game, but don’t let that stop you from trying it out.

soul calibur best 3d games for androidSoulCalibur

[Price: $13.99]
SoulCalibur was one of the most popular fighting games of its time specifically because it was one of the few that was done in 3D. As such you can attack forward and back, but you can also side step your opponents to try to get an edge. You can also knock them off the course on some maps. There are a few game modes, including the story mode, time trials, survive and extreme survival where you go as long as possible without taking any damage. It’s a little expensive, but there are no in-app purchases and it’s a really decent fighting game.
