Modern combat VS nova...

Here's the scenario, I have a bit of money in my itunes account, I sort of want NOVA.
On the other hand, I could buy Modern combat.
Which game is better, and why?

Currently beta testing/ have beta tested: Novarift, New York Zombies (NYZ), Depict, Armada: galactic war.
Alpha Testing: Mission Europa.

Wait a few days for Brothers In Arms 2. That is the newest FPS from Gameloft, so presumably it would be better.

It depends what you prefer. NOVA is a sci-fi FPS, which has less strategy and more plow-through-your-enemy gameplay. It is pretty linear, but the gameplay and controls are so fluid and brilliant that they make NOVA a joy to play. Modern Combat has slightly stiffer controls,but involves more strategy, like ducking behind a wall and waiting for the enemy to come to you. It has more weapons than NOVA, but NOVA has more playtime and fluider controls. Multiplayer wise, Modern Combat is better because NOVA has been infiltrated by hackers, but when there are no hackers, NOVA is a more enjoyable experience. There are pros and cons for each game, but both are extremely enjoyable. Hope this helped
