N.O.V.A Best, or Maybe top 3 of all mobile games out (PSP/DS etc)

I just looked through the top PSP games, and I dont think they have a shooter that even touches NOVA... maybe PSP wins in RPG's and Fighters (Tekken 6 looked good). But NOVA is FPS (my favorite), and Im not seeing anything that beats it..

the combo of good graphics, good controls, good engine/gameplay, populated (not popular) Multiplayer...

I welcome any suggestion of a better mobile FPS (nothing comes close IMO)

Nova looks and controls better than any FPS I've played on the PSP including Resistance. NDS doesn't even come close to what the Iphone achieved graphics wise. 3GS rules!

Medal of Honor Heroes 2

Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies

I'm sorry but you must be a HUGE Gameloft fanboy for this thread and for hating on the appvent indie games.

Also, the title says all mobile games but your post says FPS's, which are you talking about?

/sarcasm

Hmm. MoH 2 does look like competition.. not sure how the multiplayer is

I have CoD: Zombies, and while its a great shooter, its just a slow survival shooter.. when your just standing there doing absolutely nothing, waiting for Zombies to show up.. it definitaley loses its top spot

Im not a Gameloft fanboy, I really hate the MC Multiplayer crap, it even says Multiplayer on the icon but wont work with 40%+ of routers out there

Kiddo? haha, anyways what does looking like an overgrown kid have to do with the quality of the games?

Nothing.

I guess you do look more "cool" with an iPhone, doesn't make the games any better than a DS or PSP's though.

I'm not talking about FPS's only BTW, I'm talking about all games.

Do you have any suggestions? Enlighten us please.

I just meant int he FPS bracket.. I know iPhone has been poorly neglected in the RPG department (Ravensword was a great tech demo though)
