While Gameloft’s first batch of iPhone to Android conversions wasn’t particularly exemplary, it did serve to show up the gaming deficiencies of the Nexus One class of Android device.
Despite this, the first N.O.V.A. proved to be one of the better attempts from the publisher, with a potent mix of sci-fi shooting and impressive 3D graphics.
N.O.V.A. 2 was only recently released on iPhone, bringing improved graphics and a sparkly new multiplayer mode to the party. Still, we’d be surprised if the turnaround time on an Android conversion wasn’t much quicker and more successful this time around.
With Google’s new flagship device a far more capable device than its predecessor, and the imminent introduction of dual-core handsets, N.O.V.A. 2 should run like the beautiful Halo clone it is on decent Android hardware.
