N.O.V.A. 3: Freedom Edition Review
One of the things that we like the most when it comes to shooters is that they provide some of the best graphics on the market. Of course, this is mostly true for the desktop version of such games, but the reality is that mobile games can also receive such graphic detail as well, with the N.O.V.A. 3: Freedom Edition game being the prime example.
N.O.V.A. 3: Freedom Edition is basically the ad-based edition of the N.O.V.A. 3 title from Gameloft, which renounces the price but instead brings ads and keeps the in-app purchases. But what is N.O.V.A. 3 really? Well, this Android game is an action-packed shooter for your mobile phone or tablet where you play the role of an army man who comes back to our planet just to find out that it is invaded by aliens. This is an unwelcoming sign for him, and as you would expect, this leads to a wide range of missions and intense gameplay moments that you need to overcome in order to find out the truth and save our planet.
As you play, you will be able to explore the beautifully designed locations and kill all the enemies that gets in your way. There are multiple types of opponents that you need to engage, and you also have various ways to kill them. Alongside the normal on-foot attacks, you can also engage in battle with the help of mechs, or you can sometimes man the weapons you can find on top of the trucks located in this massive game world.
When it comes to weapons, you need to know that there are multiple types available, and you will have to use the currency you acquire from killing enemies in order to purchase new ones. Depending on how well you work and engage in a game, you will be able to find better results in the end, with multiple weapons at your helm. This particular mechanics is rewarding and highly appealing, and it’s one of the main incentives for playing the game over and over.
Controls in N.O.V.A. 3: Freedom Edition can be a little weary and they do require some time to get accustomed to, although they do are quite intuitive. From start to finish, you will definitely appreciate how responsive these touch controls actually are.
This Android game comes with some impressive visual effects, and the overall graphics here are just spectacular. Enemies look really well, and overall, everything just seems designed in order to bring you a realistic depiction of an alien invasion. The game is colorful, but the overall idea you get is of realism, which is a plus.
Sounds are also quite good too, with numerous interesting tunes to listen to while you kill enemies, and some great voice acting that you can hear when you talk with non-playable characters (NPCs).
Overall, we found N.O.V.A. 3: Freedom Edition to be an interesting, captivating and exciting first-person shooter (FPS). This is by far one of the most graphically appealing titles that you can find on mobile, and playing it will seem pretty much like the experience you get from the Mass Effect series. This is one game experience that you don’t want to miss, so we encourage you to check it out.
Summary: N.O.V.A. 3: Freedom Edition is a great Android game. It features an enjoyable and extensive storyline, an action-packed gameplay, and an engaging multiplayer that makes it one of the better FPS in the Play Store today.
