    This is an amazing game and a great mobile alternative to Halo. The story is very well done, but if your a Halo fan looking for a mobile alternative you'll probably be spending most of your time on multiplayer. This is a great game and you should defiantly pick it up.

    N.O.V.A. 3 has some of the best graphics there is on IOS games. There is Campaign mode which has a great plot with several action-packed levels. But that is nothing compared to the online multiplayer mode. You can play online with random people or friends, as well as local wifi with friends. You're sure to be happy and mad and having tons of fun.

    My only gripe is still with the controls, and the lack of precision. Without the auto-aiming, it could have been a totally different experience, as swiping to get your crosshairs over a moving enemy was sometimes an exercise in frustration. Despite this, NOVA 3 would still appeal to all FPS gamers who have been wishing for a decent mobile experience.

    Derivative, buggy, boring. N.O.V.A. 3 is nowhere near console quality.

    One of the best first-person shooters on mobiles, but controls are still irksome. [Aug 2012, p.86]
