N.O.V.A 2 this game is great if you like halo or like any sc-fi first person shooter game, then you will love this game. But I must say I actually hate the brand that made this game by Gameloft, they have copy many great game like N.O.V.A = Halo, and Modern Combat = Modern Warfare. But it may look, sound and have a A.I but the story line is nothing like halo it at all, it may have a super suit soldier and your against an alien rase. That is really it thought. I hope one of the people that made this game reads this because I think you guys should let us change our player more then just our color like let us change our person body shape armor to like the bad guys armor style. Like you know one you can pick a Spartan or an Elite to chose from, then we the player can then change the color this will make this game the best first person shooter game on the iPad. So this game deserved 4.0-Stars for now I will only changed it to a solid 5-Stars if you made that one ideal I made up I think ever one would love that. By (M.V games review)

Really fun app get it or I will come to your home DOWNLOAD

Well first thing is that this game is only fun when you have a game loft live account because I think it's really fun on multiplayer because you get to fight people around the world. And on campaign it's very hard because your fighting CPU's and not people that are real living people and your fighting a stinkin CPU so multiplayer is only on the full version and i'v only played multiplayer and I'm already a level 6 so you should really download this app wait keep on reading you can also look at how many kills and deaths and matches you've done so you know what you've all done on campaign an multiplayer and I think you should get modern warfare, brothers in arms, and order chaos so I love this game so much I made this really really long review for you guys so you can download this spectacular game and also for multiplayer you need good Internet or it will say LOST SERVER so yeah I'm in love with this app wow I just realized this review is really long.


It's a good game in general. The multiplayer is all I ever do and it gets frustrating. Several hacks include moving while you are frozen, and I know it is not lag cause I googled it, getting underneath the floor, now I'll admit I've tried that one and it's hard and I've never completed it, but I'd rather it be removed, and if your using gamlofts network they can at least provide good connection, I know I'm using theyrs because when I make my own connection it kicks me out on account of bad Internet, I go to check the Internet and its fine. Sometimes it won't even give me a warning. Now if you come for the single player it's fun but it has a ton of glitches to. You freez out of nowhere, get stuck in obscure places that were set up to look like a good hiding spot and more. Well now there's all the bad stuff. Look on the bright side and there's a really cool single player and multiplayer mode. Leader boards are wrong to. I have over a thousand more kills then the person in front of me
