N.O.V.A. is still the best shooter for your iPhone, so IGN recommends you definitely hang with that version. N.O.V.A. HD is just too clunky to get behind, even though it has all the same great set pieces from the iPhone hit. The controls – even when customized – are not comfortable to use over extended gameplay sessions. In many ways, this feels like Gameloft trying to figure out how to make a good first-person shooter for the iPad and you're along for the ride. Hopefully, the inevitable N.O.V.A. 2 HD will iron out some of the wrinkles because the iPad could really use a shooter as awesome as N.O.V.A. is for the iPhone.
