Nova or NFS shift?

I'd get both but I just got a fantastic deal off a bunch of games on steam and don't want to buy 2 iphone games atm. I'm leaning towards shift now because it has some really nice stat tracking even though I own a bunch of racing games already. I don't really care for online MP and mostly looking for an awesome SP experience. For those of you who own both which title did you find more enjoyable? I guess this could be considered a strange question because they are both different genres but I'm torn between the 2!

I really enjoyed Nova's single player, the cut scenes and gameplay are really good. I have tons of racing games as well and Nova was a no brainer.

NFS: Shift will most likely drop to $4.99 just like it's predecessor.

I would probably go with shift. I would guess that you already own NFS: Undercover and Real Racing, because Shift feels like a blend between both. NOVA is a great fps, but I'm getting a little bored with it already. I've really enjoyed the racing games that come out in the app store, NFS: Shift is really good. I'm feeling that I like the gameplay in Real Racing a little bit better, but the variety of cars, plus the ability to customize is really cool.

I would go for N.O.V.A. Why?

N.O.V.A. is unique. It's great FPS, with some weapons to choose from, wonderful locations, voice messages, dynamic lights and graphics which is above everything at present. No game can match N.O.V.A in dimension of graphic, sounds, hostiles AI (they are throwing items laying on the ground at You and hidding behind the wall edges!). Maybe You get bored, or irritated durning second level, but that's because You want to check out next one, this is obvious.

Go for it and for racing - buy Undercover and have more fun
