Nova 3 is pretty is fast paced and Mc3 is kinda slow. I think modern combat controls a bit better and has less slow downs/lag. It's kinda a tie in the graphics department. I personally am liking nova 3 at the moment and I think it's a lot less boring then modern combat is. But that's just my opinion...

Modern Combat 3's singleplayer mode is better meanwhile NOVA 3's multiplayer mode is better.
In fact NOVA 3 is a different game with NOVA 2, driving vehicle in the multiplayer map is good. But where have the super jump platform and space portal gone? And not forget the HP,full damage and double jump buff you can get in NOVA 2's multiplayer map.

Dafuq are you saying?!?! First of all, MC3 is more fast paced, because maps are smaller and there are equal amount of people on a room than in Nova 3. The guns also kill faster than ehem first assault rifle on Nova 3. Second, Modern Combat 3's controls are milestones better than Nova 3's... There's basically FULL customization from making bigger or smaller to moving everything, that's what I hate about Nova 3, guess I'm spoiled. Third, graphics are not tied between them, nova has better except maybe on iPod where they took a lot of effects off. And finally, imo MC3 is not boring, quite the opposite, but it comes down to preference. Realistic vs. Futuristic although mc is not that realistic...

Multiplayer is not really better on Nova 3, I mean sure there are vehicles, but the maps are so big that it takes ages to find someone often. Of course it's still mad fun on Nova 3 too. Nova 2 I can't comment on, foudn that incredibly boring.

Anyway, just think which one you'd enjoy more, because both are very good shooters. For me, it's MC3 simply cause I am a lot better at it than Nova 3

Mc3 is very fast paced. I beat Campaign very easily. In nova I haven't tried it. Nova 3 is very futuristic in multiplayer with jet packs .which are ridiculously priced) and the assault rifle in nova 3 sucks. In modern combat 3 you can do very good even if your level one with the bravel 1. I'm level 66 in mc3 and I sometimes use it. In nova it's a different story. You can't pick up a gun and be good. You gotta practice. I'm not that good with the assault rifle. Becuase it sucks. But multiplayer is more fun in mc3.

Sorry for the length.

Yep. First assault rifle is ridicilously bad unlike Bravel-1 which actually is a very powerful gun.

Although yes, it does take nearly a full clip to kill someone on nova 3, I get 20 kills a game and under 5 deaths. Although now with the hackers I get like 15 kills 15 deaths...
