When I had a Nokia N-Gage back in, well let's just say back then, Gameloft was impressive. They did almost always "above the average quality" games. But now things change I see, for inatance; I have an iPhone at the moment and every single gameloft branded game is not even average. They are way below average. I wonder what changed? Because I see many quiet awesome iPhone games that it is clear iPhone can be considered even a handheld gaming console. And knowing that Gameloft was a legend producer in my 'Series 60' years, one wonders.
However, again, one cannot claim that N.O.V.A. is a poor imitation of Halo. It is as good as any game can get on an iPhone. I accept it is a clone, but it is a well made well designed clone. Buy it, you will not be disappointed, although I will not say it may be a turn point for Gameloft or anything. They need more such games to earn the trust of, at least mine, of the wireless gamer community.
