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

    NOVA appears to have been made in the same spirit as Hero of Sparta...to 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 have only played th... Read Full Review

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

    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 Details that they put... Read Full Review

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

    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 feel like a compromi... Read Full Review

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

    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 has a $6 price tag ... Read Full Review

    Gameloft delivers a bite-sized version of Halo.

    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 bite-sized version of... Read Full Review
