This is why I try games for myself

So a lot of the reviews here are very unsatisfied-sounding. I’ve been all about nova since the first one. I played the hell out of nova 3 when time allowed at sea. Anyone that has done something similar knows how much it can mean, as far as your choices of games to bring out there, even if you hardly get time to play them. Anyway. I read the reviews from other die-hard nova fans, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried. But I decided to say screw it and try the game anyway. Not many people will likely agree with me, but I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised. I’m all about progress leading things in new directions, and we all know game loft excels at keeping with the times. So all things considered, I see this as a sort of anniversary/new experiment that I’m pretty into. No, it’s not a carbon copy of the first nova. I was hoping it wouldn’t be. They said they made improvements, and they did. As I hobby I write, and when I revise a personal story, I’ll change whatever I need to to create what I want the result to be. I see the exact same process here and I’m all for it. Also I have nova 3 downloaded for when the nostalgia is hitting hard, or the WiFi cuts out.

So basically, I don’t think it’s that bad at all, and I’m gonna keep playing. I recommend trying it for yourself before letting other’s opinions be your own

Optimized for iPad

I wish I could rate this twice. Once on my iPad with a high rating. And then a second time with this rating from my phone. However, giving a 5 and saying everything is all good would be a disservice to those playing on a cell phone. I’d rather criticize with a chance of the problem being fixed. That being said. The graphics and gameplay of this game is stellar. I mean think about it. We’re on mobile devices and this is just as fun as when I played call of duty 4 on Xbox 360 as a teenager. It blows my mind. It rly does. There’s rly only one thing that is a major major buzzkill for me. The sensitive settings on a cell phone are unenjoyable. It’s WAY too sensitive. Aiming is just about impossible. I put the sensitivity bar all the way to 0 and it felt as if it literally did nothing. On my iPad it’s perfect. I turn down the sensitivity and aiming with a touch screen is as enjoyable as it could possibly be. Playing on the phone is just about impossible. If I want my avi to take a full 10 seconds to make a complete 360, then via the sensitivity setting, that should be a possibility. That’s what the sensitivity bar is for. If they could patch this and let us ACTUALLY control the sensitivity on this smaller screen that would be so much better. Because then I can play on either device when it’s most convenient. Anyways. If they fix this I have zero problems revising and giving a 5 because it’s playable on multiple devices instead of being locked down to just one.

Total Downgrade

After seeing an old rival, MiD_V3N0M, write a review I thought Id write one too. Like him, NOVA 2 was my jam when i was 13, I was addicted and could not stop playing. I remember all the fun times with half-jumping your way out of the map, double tapping the fire button as fast as possible to hit the quickscope headshots with the sniper, the god awful hackers with the rocket spams (ill admit, i even got so tired of it i became one of them for about 10 levels) and insane time to kill on the alien lightning gun, and how can i forget the good old skin colors, man i miss those! I rocked the black and turquoise/blue skin. :’) so awesome. Then NOVA 3 came out and it was awesome as well! It added weapon sway, ADS, some crazy aim assist for the sniper and railgun, improved graphics, a super hot Yelena, and friggin jetpacks! So many memories in both games that i thought this nova legacy would carry on, but alas, this game is trash. Graphics are terrible, campaign missions take 5 minutes, no voice acting, and the ability to aim and shoot is just trash. Not to mention the hitboxes in the campaign expand outside the actual enemy character. Never even played multiplayer on this. Anyway, I was really disappointed to wait about 5 years and have this crap show up. Really hoping NOVA 4 will be as epic as NOVA 2 and NOVA 3. For anyone who made it this far, I miss the old days too. Cheers, IC3FLY :)
