Among the literally thousands of iPhone games out there, some are bad, some not so bad, some are so, so, some are ok, while some others are good, really good and some that are down right freaking awesome!
Included among those freaking awesome games, and one of the best of the best, would be Gameloft's amazing new shooter - N.O.V.A! Gameloft is one company that took an early lead in iPhone gaming development, and out of their growing list, now 35 titles strong, N.O.V.A just happens to be one of their very best to date.
Gameloft describes N.O.V.A's story line in the following manner:
"With Earth no longer able to sustain life, huge artificial satellites called "near-orbitals" were constructed for people to live on. Humanity now begins an aggressive campaign of colonization across the galaxy in a struggle to survive. To protect themselves, the near-orbitals banded together to form N.O.V.A., the Near-Orbital Vanguard Alliance.
Now, a strange threat has emerged from the darkness of space. A Marine ship, reported missing just a week ago, has suddenly reappeared and is headed directly for the near-orbitals, ignoring all communications.
Against his will, retired Marine hero Kal Wardin is forcefully returned to active duty with N.O.V.A. to infiltrate the ship. But neither Kal nor N.O.V.A. could have anticipated the full scale of the threat that would be hiding aboard, and how far Kal would have to go to prevent the extermination of mankind."
TouchArcade did an excellent review of N.O.V.A which you can read here, but today I want to just sit back and take a quick video look at this amazing game in action - YouTube style! So, kick up your heals and sit back and enjoy the ride as you get to view N.O.V.A among the following video's below, with the first being a sneak peak from the developers themselves:
Also, below, from iPod Touch 24 Productions, we find this video:
Here, below, we find yet again another great trailer from Gameloft:
The last two videos, from this incredible graphically rich game, are as follows:
Well there now, what did you honestly think?
Is this a great game or what?
Personally, even though I'm not much of a gamer myself, I have to admit that this multi-player powerhouse is one game that has what it takes to get even an old timer like myself pretty dang tooting excited! The high quality of its graphics, its smooth and its fast game play gives this game all of the 'right stuff'!
Gameloft is a company from France that proves that the French produce a lot more than just a great fashions, great wines, cheese and other gastronomical delights, but that they also have a a great sense and flair for producing some really great software, and software that can easily compete with the best that the world has to offer.
So, in conclusion, just let me say that if your a gamer and, as well, also an iPhone or iPod Touch user, then for crying out turkey lip sandwich's, what in Pete's sake are you waiting for - go check out his great game for yourself via the APP STORE, or by going to Gameloft's official N.O.V.A site today and start experiencing and enjoying the very best that the world of iPhone gaming has to offer .
And that's my 2 cents 4 this Wednesday, December 30, 2009
