Gameloft’s N.O.V.A. franchise has always been seen as an unashamed Halo ripoff. However, the developer knows what they’re doing, and the games have always been fun to play, despite the obvious influences. This time around, in N.O.V.A. 3, the game visually borrows a great deal from Crysis 2. Kal Wardin’s suit has been revamped in the style of the Nanosuit, and the guns and HUD have been retooled with a Crysis influence. You even start the game out in a city environment, heavily recalling the urban warfare of Crysis 2.
