Yes Nova 3 will be the game to play when it comes out. I would be very surprised if this game isn't one of the very best on iOS.

Funny how EA was supposed to be kickin butt with Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect... What the hell happened there??

People boarded the hype train and had too high expectations. Personally I didn't get excited about them (BF3 in particular) because their previous FPS, BFBC2, was pretty bad. But I really didn't expect BF3 to fail as bad as it did. EA must have been really ashamed to pull it from the App Store so soon.

The multiplayer in here is gonna be awesome! Can't wait for all the vehicles. Any news on multiplayer maps? What would you guys guess the maps are?

After EA released dead space. I thought their games were going to be getting better. BFBC2 was horrible and still is. Constant crashing.

Glad to see Gameloft upping their games again and getting away from that horrid freemium.

Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves here. One non-free to play "core" gamer game doesn't mean they're shifting course.

Nah, Gameloft isn't "shifting course." This is the only paymium game they've released this year. Two of them released last year. No iOS developer is going to support this quality of game full time. It's more like a "once in a blue moon" type of situation. The same can be said with EA and their involvement with Mass Effect Infiltrator. Gods knows when or if we'll ever see something like that again from EA. Gameloft may produce an extremely high caliber game like NOVA 3 once or twice a year.

Well I think gameloft was pretty clear in their interview (From a few month now: http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Multi...ws.asp?c=37152). They said that both freemium and premium titles would continue to co-exist and the reason is clear: Freemium is really working out for them (and printing money). But i believe that we'll see more premium titles from them as we get to the end of the year. They still have to push out those UE games after all.

Well, the multiplayer maps will have to be pretty large to support vehicles.

Two actually. I don't know, with Shark Dash and Nova 3, I'm starting to get my hopes up. But then the lack of support for mc3 pulls me back to reality - its gameloft we're speaking of.

Shark Dash? lol

No I think that at this point Gameloft is just going to continue with their older franchises and keep the premium model consistent there. Hopefully they learned their lesson about that with DH3... But yeah, definitely still expect a lot of freemium from them in the future, people keep paying for it so they will continue to provide it.
