Customer Reviews

Solid

Graphics, gameplay and overall production values are a big step up from the original NOVA. Feels even more like Halo now, inspired by Halo 2 this time it seems. Framerate does stutter a tiny bit on my iPad 2 but barely noticeable once your into the game.

My only complaint is that not all the buttons are customisable, the HUD is way cooler just not as user friendly as before. If you're looking for another FPS then its definitely worth it, doesn't feel cheap/outdated like the first NOVA at all.

Would give 4 stars if the controls were more like the original.

Great buy

Great game, really addictive and totally worth it,only four star as multiplayer is a bit glitchy - sometimes when you die you don't respawn and you just do nothing. Please fix asap! Otherwise, really great game.

Amazing game

This game is the best game I have on my IPad it has got brilliant graphics and amazing storyline for campaign and nice multiplayer.
It also has really good weapons and cool skins
