N.O.V.A 3 Brings Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Team/FPS Greatness Is Back!



I would be hard pressed to find an Android gamer that doesn't eventually get around to playing the now classic N.O.V.A. and N.O.V.A 2 first person shooter sci-fi games.   Some of the crown jewels in Gameloft's impressive gaming portfolio, the Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance series features the closest thing to an all out 'Halo' experience you're going to find on the Android platform.  Featuring breathtaking graphics, amazing, jaw dropping scenery and cinematic quality cut scenes, N.O.V.A. 3 pushes the bar even higher with new weapons, new enemies, new worlds to explore and the latest in control for multi-player action that is out of this world.   Just take a gander at some gameplay footage in the video below.

Now one of the great things about N.O.V.A. is its open world gameplay.   In addition to the 6 multiplayer modes (Capture the Point, Free-for-All, Capture the Flag, etc.) on 6 different modes and the awesome first person player option I love just being able to explore the beautiful landscapes and marvel at the architecture and artwork that goes into the making of this game.  The effects are first rate with real-time shadow and lighting effects, particle explosions, ragdoll physics and much more.  The story line starts about four months after the last game ends and has you returning to earth after your battles in the colonies to save mankind.  You'll travel to 10 different levels from earth to a frozen Volterite city.   Definitely hours and hours of quality first rate FPS gameplay here folks.  You can grab it at the link below in
