Gameloft are indeed the undisputed kings of the ‘mockbuster’ mobile game, biting wholesale from the likes of Uncharted, Grand Theft Auto and even World of Warcraft to keep players entertained on the go…admittedly with varying degrees of success.
Judging by this first gameplay taster of their latest title N.O.V.A 3, Gameloft have eschewed the heavy-handed homage to the Xbox’s Halo that marked the first two instalments and gone for sumptuous first person shooter Crysis 2 as their inspiration.
Armoured suits? Check? Big guns? Present and correct. The huge surprise is that the game looks amazing, deciding to also crib some of Crysis’ visual style to make for one of the best looking mobile games we’ve yet seen.
Depth of field effects, heat haze, detailed textures…this one seems to be putting a few fully fledged console titles to shame in the technical stakes!
Check out the video below…N.O.V.A. 3 is scheduled to drop this month on iOS and Android devices.
