    The story mode here is actually a ton better than any of the recent MCs, just going by level design and enemy AI.

    I think the action in the MC games is more fun. It's a mess carrying more than 5 types of weapons. Being able to carry over 50 grenades is also hilarious. What really frustrated me were the many bugs and platforming sections. The enemy AI is definitely better here than in MC though, yes. I think my favorite NOVA is still the original. I played through that one quite a few times. I spent a good amount of time with the mp in the second game.

    Well you don't need to reinstall to make space for a game that you got tired of. We could wait for A8. What other multiplayer game do you have on your device?

    Any chance iOS 7 controller support will be added at this point?

    ^I'd love it for NOVA3 to get iOS7 controller support.

    This still belongs to my top 3 FPS on iOS along with DEx The Fall and Dead Effect.

  11. This one has a better chance cause it did support the duo gamer, but still doubtful.

    Played this with both a duo gamer joystick and moga joystick on android. Plays well with joystick.

    Now that i think about it, GL may not support the iOS7 controllers coz they have their own which they put resources into.

    That thing is dead and gone. You can pick it up for $6 on Amazon and it supports about 6 games. iOS 7 controller support would open up a whole new market for this game. I would be playing it again if they added it.

    That would be sweet if Deus Ex: The Fall also got controller support! I've been having a hard time wanting to play it without.

    I just played probably the most fun match I've ever played on Nova 3. It pains me that gameloft probably isn't ever going to realese a new Nova game.nthe nova games are my favorite iOS FPS franchise. Don't get me wrong, I love the Modern Combat games, but I much prefer the insane stuff you can do in this game. It's pure fun.

    Great, purchased it. The multiplayer was fantastic on my s3.

    Update: just played and I was back to level 39 with all my stats but all my coins, weapons and jeypack were gone.

    Sorry to hear about that but quick question, how's the hacker situation?
    Are you seeing many speed guys, infinite jet packs or unlimited ammo RPG's?
    Thanks in advance.
