N.O.V.A. 3 crash lands on iOS, angry aliens and big guns in tow

Gameloft has launched N.O.V.A. 3, the next step to their sci-fi first-person-shooter franchise for iPhone and iPad. This time, you're taking to the streets of Earth, engaging in gripping firefights with a bunch of high-tech weaponry and vehicles. As with previous games, there's full support for multiplayer, spanning 6 modes and including up to 12 players, but there's also a ten-level single-player campaign to get you warmed up. Vehicles now let more than one player hop in, which promises to be a ton of fun when playing online. There's no Game Center support, since Gameloft has their own setup for multiplayer and achievements, but N.O.V.A. 3  is optimized for the new iPad.

The N.O.V.A. franchise has been around for awhile, and has been a staple for the quality of mobile first-person-shooters in many respects. Modern Combat, another one of Gameloft's brands, has very much done the same, only it targeted the Modern Warfare and Call of Duty crowd rather than the hardcore Halo players.

Personally, I'm itching to give this a shot. Are you?

N.O.V.A. 3 crash lands on iOS, angry aliens and big guns in tow


Hehehe, indeed, we've been through Halo, Halo/Crysis and now Crysis 2. Microsoft and Crytek must be really happy. ;) It's nice to have those pseudo-original games on the phone though.

This game is nothing more than a Halo, Modern Warefare, and any other FPS that has come out over the past months. Just like that Dungeon Hunter is nothing more than a Diablo clone. All Gameloft does is rip off other game companies for ideas.

Quite disappointed. All day today I've been anxiously awaiting getting home to download and play only to find it is more a SciFi version of Modern Warfare or CoD than it is a sequel to NOVA 2. There is NOTHING Halo like about this game which is why I loved the previous version. And even more sadly they have jumped on the in-ap purchase band wagon that if you want any of the cool guns you have to buy them.
