N.O.V.A. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance: Elite is a free to play Sci-fi FPS(First person shooter) you can play from your browser while signed into Facebook.

The obvious reference for N.O.V.A. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance: Elite is Quake. The style is Quake through and through, with metallic futuristic armor and environments. It's not as smooth or well balanced as that FPS classic, but there are some pretty good trade-offs.

The main positive for N.O.V.A. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance: Elite is being in Facebook: You can easily play your friends in multiplayer matches. This is perhaps the best way of playing too. You get gifts for inviting friends, which is important as most good equipment costs not just XP you gain from playing, but micro payments too. If you play random people, you will certainly be up against players with much higher levels, and no amount of 'headshots' seem to be enough for a level 3 player to kill a level 15 player.

This is irritating - it's one thing for players to get better weapons and abilities with experience, but to become all but invincible to the lower levels really makes the game unfair. In this way, N.O.V.A. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance: Elite is almost a cheap MMORPG dressed up as an FPS. You can't win without experience points, just like in some role playing games. FPS's are supposed to be mainly about skill, but N.O.V.A. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance: Elite's leveling system breaks this fundamental essence. Despite these big problems, N.O.V.A. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance: Elite is still fun to play with friends, and takes Facebook gaming to a new level. As it's still in beta, we hope greater fairness is brought in with later developments.
