    With excellent graphics and multiplayer, N.O.V.A. is a step above the rest.

    Was all the hype worth it? You bet. Sure, compared to other games, the $7 price may be a bit steep, but it is well worth it. The best way to describe it would be if Halo, Doom, and the iPhone had...

    It definately raises the bar of quality for the PS Minis.

    NOVA appears to have been made in the same spirit as Hero of be an off brand replica of a popular franchise. In this case, the franchise being Halo. Being that I've never owned an XBOX and...

    Gameloft delivers a bite-sized version of Halo.

    Rated on January 07, 2010 by Paul_GameFury

    Gameloft proved that the iPhone could handle a full fledged FPS just a few short months ago with Modern Combat, but they are far from kicking back and savoring their victory. Their next target was a b...

    I wasn't expecting much from an iPhone FPS, but I was wrong.

    Rated on January 18, 2010 by Dekonizer

    I know what you're thinking: An FPS on the iPhone? Bull. And it's good? Bull. N.O.V.A. is a great iPhone game that will keep you clinging to your little portable device for a long time. The game...

    Best FPS on Iphone!!!

    Rated on January 31, 2010 by Cloud_King8

    I got this game when it first came out and I have been loving it since. The graphics are just amazing and the gameplay is just as you would have imagined it to be. N.O.V.A is pretty much like Halo but...

    A straight up Halo-clone for the iPhone/iPod rises above its derivative nature to become the best portable FPS.

    Rated on April 12, 2010 by JoeBentley

    The bottom line: N.O.V.A. is the best portable FPS for any system. FPS games for portable systems have always been hit or miss. Even the good ones like Metroid for the DS or Coded Arms for the PSP ...

    Awesome Game! Compared to Eliminate and Sandstorm, this would be my 3rd Favorite FPS. Do Not play this on the iPhone!!!

    Rated on May 01, 2010 by BeersYourFriend

    This Game Blows Eliminate and Sandstorm Away, in my Opinion! A lot of what is in NOVA, will remind you of Halo, or Halo 1 at least... It's Graphics are absolutely Amazing for an iPhone FPS Game, the D...

    NOVA feels a bit too familiar, but is solid enough to render a purchase.

    Rated on May 17, 2010 by ivory_soul

    The Good: Technically superb, lots of guns, good controls, level variety, decent story The Bad: Feels generic and too familiar, gets repetitive towards the end, no one's playing online NOVA can ...
