    Dementium is the best one for story and gameplay, play with headphones in a dark room. Sequel out in April.

    People seem to like the three Call of Duty games, not into them personally.

    Metroid Prime Hunters was too linear but decent enough. Has a story but I forgot anything about it.

    C.O.R.E. DS is awful. As is that GoldenEye Rogue Agent.

    There are others but they are worse.

    I wouldn't call either Point Blank DS or especially Resident Evil DS first person shooters. REDS is a survival horror adventure game if anything with the only FPS stuff being the knife fights they added randomly for the rebirth mode. You still shoot zombies via third person mode.

    I'd actually add Bionicle Heroes to the list of nice FPSes. I find the style not unlike Metroid Prime Hunters. Except for the Lego theme. Nice graphics and sound and level design. Might interest you, won't set your world on fire, but very fun.

    Don't forget Fighting Fantasy, which is still pretty much an FPS, though with more classic RPG elements. And I guess if you go straight up fighter, you're not doing much shooting. But archer or mage will.

    Moon was pretty good, kinda felt like Quake 2.

    Dementium the Ward is a bit overrated IMO. The level design was crap with beds and junk forcing you to detour through rooms multiple times.

    Moon coulda been alot better. The story was blah (Was annoying playing on hard and runnning out of ammo all the time) and all the bosses were similiar.

    Metroid Hunters is the best IMO. Had decent controls, good music and interesting bosses and levels.

    Agree with GhostToast re: Fighting Fantasy. Not really a First Person "Shooter", but still can play like one. And has good level design like Metroid Hunters (the sound fx and music suck though).

    Call of Duty World at War wasn't too bad, but it was screwy to control at times for me.

    Its not really a FPS, but more a Third Person game, but I thought Star Wars: The Force, was okay. It was kinda repetetive, but it was Star Wars and the music was decent.

    Also might wanna check out Brothers in Arms DS. Kinda like Call of Duty WaW, but more clunky in some ways (The event scripting is more interesting).

    All of this and no mention of homebrew?

    Pretty much all the big duke3d/doom era FPS games appeared here and and handful of the later ones (Quake and Quake 2) with all that it brings (mods).

    Over in the more original homebrew camp there is a bit of stuff, mainly "gallery" shooters although there are some original titles: http://smealum.net/

    I would recommend the Call of Duty games, although don't expect a good story with them.

    I didn't like call of duty on Wii. Maybe because of the quality since I have it on PS3 already.
    But I enjoyed 007 on Wii [​IMG]
