Love action games? Then here are five games you must have on your Android.

With devices getting smarter and processors getting faster, gaming has turned out to be a bigger, more prominent avenue of interest for smartphone owners. And not just simple gaming like in the olden days - today smartphones offer detailed graphics, immersive sound and realistic controls, aided by devices like Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, and Sony Tablet that have cutting edge technology.

While talking about games there are a plethora of genres today. Of these, action games are the most preferred and enjoyed. So here we have a selection of the top five action games that Android users must have on their device if the hardware is up to it. Plus, all these games are available absolutely free of cost so you can enjoy them without burning a hole in your pocket.

Brothers in Arms 2

Brothers in Arms 2 is a war game where your role is of a solider on his way to becoming a war hero. Set in World War 2, the game puts users in the middle of the battle field where they have to strategise and outsmart the enemy to be victorious. The story is simple, yet intriguing. Users not only fight on foot, but get to play on different vehicles, which have their own limitations. They can shoot with rifles, flamethrowers, or can also use heavy machine guns found in the bunkers.

Players can choose to play solo in the story mode or can kill with friends over the internet as well. Also included is the Bluetooth game play option, so you can team up with your friends against the enemy. With the game, users get to experience every front of the war with 50 missions to unlock across five locations: the Pacific, Normandy, North Africa, Germany and Sicily. To unlock missions, users need to earn dog tags, which in the context of the game are experience medals.

The health line of soldiers has been kept very slim to make this game more interesting and you will always have to look out for your health level, otherwise you will die within five minutes. You can, though, buy your life back either by shelling out medals, which are earned with great difficulty, or by making in-app purchases.
