If you’ve got a hankering for futuristic first person shooters on a mobile device, N.O.V.A. 3 is here to scratch that itch. Graphically impressive — the series has always been a showcase for all the modern mobile hardware — the third version looks absolutely stunning.
Developed by Gameloft, the N.O.V.A. series has often been compared to Bungie’s Halo series in its character and enemy design, weapon capabilities and general look and feel. There is no doubt that Gameloft was “inspired” by the successful Xbox franchise, but a good game is a good game, right?
N.O.V.A. 3 adds real-time particle effects, motion blur, improved shadows and a number of other impressive graphical touches to iOS. The Android version should be out very soon.
At $6.99 it’s not cheap for a typical mobile game, but for console-quality entertainment it’s pretty good value.
Download N.O.V.A. 3 from the App Store. It is compatible with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, iPad 2, the new iPad, and iPod 4th gen.
