N.O.V.A. 3 – Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance is an epic, First Person Shooter game that features our hero (Kal), who is on a mission to save mankind within the 10 immersive and large levels of gameplay, along with plenty of new weapons, and an excellent Multi-Player game mode. A lot of hardcore gamers don’t consider the iPhone, iPad or iPad Touch to be worthy gaming systems — but I do.
While I do admit that the touch screen does not provide the optimal controls for First Person Shooting games, games like this are still a whole lot of fun to play on the iOS platform. The iPhone video app review below was done on an iPhone, and I found the iPhone to be a bit too small to intake the awesome experience that this game provides. However, I have almost completed the game on the iPad and it’s better than awesome! Starting off with the very well done forced tutorial (which is quick and covers all the bases), you’ll jump right into an immersive storyline that plays out across 10 huge levels.
This game offers plenty of challenging bad guys to kill in a couple different varieties, lots of new weapons, playable enemy weapons, killer monster machines to drive, and an excellent story — that sucked me in right away. The negatives for me were the game save and the permanent ability to unlock enemy weapons and item purchasing. The saving system is dicey to say the least. I found my progress saved at various states of the game, but it did not really save unless I completed a level or left the game open and continued playing. While the game allows you to permanently purchase several different Volterite weapons, they do not permanently unlock. Once you die or exit out of the game the weapons are gone, but strangely enough, the money spent on both the gun purchases, as well as item purchases (like armor and ammo upgrades) disappear after dying or leaving the game. I also could not purchase grenades even though I had the cash, very weird and an obvious bug, but this appears to be working in my benefit so no big deal. Another, somewhat of a fail is at times the computer AI gets confused and the enemy does not attack you when close by, but rather turns their back to you making for an easy shot. Overall, this game still scores a killer 5 CrazyMikesapps Heads because of excellence in iOS gaming. Check out all our iPhone app reviews. Crazy Mike
