What's New in Version 1.0.5
Fixed crash on iOS 5.1.1
Fun shooter, could use some improvements
This is a great app with a Halo feel to it. The campaign mode is nothing to talk about (although a lot of effort was put into it). The characters are hard to relate to and the protagonist is a bit of a jerk. He always seems to be complaining about every situation he ends up in. Yeah, I get that he's supposed to be rough and tough, but he has no heart. Also the narrative was boring and the dialogue sequences seemed to go on forever. Aside from the ok campaign, the multiplayer almost makes up for it. It's very exciting, yet the maps seem to have a similar design (except for the close quarters maps). And with only 10 weapons and no customization, gunplay can become a little repetitive; however vehicle warfare makes up for this niggle. Upgrades are a bit more expensive than I would like in a purchased game. Jet Pack usage should be accessible to new players or else it becomes an overwhelmingly unfair advantage. Too much grinding without in-app purchases must be done to obtain this Jetpack and even when finally purchased, it's not fun to play with knowing it's too easy to abuse.
The Best Sci-Fi Shooter on the iOS Improves and Then Some
The newest N.O.V.A. improves in so many ways. The graphics are stunning, the gameplay is fluid, and the maps are great. However, I give this 4 stars (or an 8.25 if I could do that for the ratings) instead of 5 (N.O.V.A. : 9.5, N2 : 10) like the previous installments. N3 seems to be taking more from Crysis than the previous two entries, which were definitely Halo. I loved the Halo feel so much more. The maps were also much better and I was a bigger fan of the multiplayer. Campaign was also better. N3 is still very good though. A must have for fans of shooters.
Great while it lasted
It's certainly a very impressive mobile FPS, but after about a year and a half after beating the story and getting a little tired of multiplayer I think I'll uninstall soon to make room for yet another Gameloft game (Gangstar Vegas). But anyways it's great and the only things wrong with it are:
Occasional lag (but it hits hard)
Some rendering problems
And sometimes I can run through walls and fall through the floor until I restart the level.
