N.O.V.A. 2 Looks Amazing

Here's a look at upcoming iPhone game N.O.V.A. 2 in action.

The graphics look unbelievable, but I wonder if they've tweaked the controls at all. I'm starting to think the auto-fire method is the best way to go on iPhone shooters.


    No one questions the quality, but when the controller is as gumby as an iPhone is, then it's just a huge let down every time.

    Most of that video is from the NOVA 1.

    1:03 is NOVA 2.

    I can't wait to see what games are made with Unreal Engine 3 for iPhone. It's looking awesome too.

    I had few problems with the controls in NOVA. One of the few games that get it pretty good.

    As powerful as smartphones become, it'll always be painfully obvious that gyroscope/touchscreen controls are by far the ideal input method.

    And no matter how technically beautiful or creative a game, it will always be limited by that artificial glass ceiling of control input. A damn shame.
