    Hi there,
    I am looking for some good PC shooting games.
    Like FPS and tactical--army style or another fun type. [​IMG]
    My specs are
    Core2 Duo E6300 @ 1.86 gHZ
    2 GB RAM
    ATI X1600 512 MB Graphics
    WIndows Vista Home Premium
    I've already played all the Call of Dutys, I don't like the battlefield games, too like boring without a campaign.
    Please any suggestions? [​IMG]
    Thanks

    F.E.A.R. Makes a Multiplayer-Combat only game/installer. I think its free or used to be free.
    Called F.E.A.R. Combat.

    As far as I can tell it was F.E.A.R. with out the single player mode.
    Also you can try finding Halo Combat Evolved. Yeah its a 9 year old game. But I still play it on occasion.
    Halo 2 requires you to pay-2-play. :\
    I also play Unreal 2004.

    But these are terrible suggestions for you. I prefer arcade over tactics. I like firing gunzablazin' rather than crouching and hiding behind corners. And all these games arent technically graphics marvel. My RAM is like 1GB so my games are limited.

    F.E.A.R multiplayer is rife with aimbotters

    Mass Effect 1+ 2 is a sort of RPG with tactical FPS elements.
    Lots and lots of backstory; You spend much more time talking than shooting.
    Might not be precisely what you're looking for, but I highly recommend them.
    (ME2 in particular)

    From your specs I believe you'd be able to run them,
    but it might be best if you check here, to be certain.


    EDIT: Another great and lesser-known game is
    Call of Juarez 2 (Bound in Blood)
    It's an old-west (US) shooter, and is quite fun.

    All of these games are single-player only.

    Counter-Strike: Source.

    Great game, and lots of game types/mods.

    Zombie, surf, hide N seek. Pretty much everything. [​IMG]

    Nexuiz is fun, and fast-paced. Think Quake, but open-sourced with awesome graphics.

    CrossFire Online is the best FPS for me, its almost like a counter strike game.

    Gunz and Borderlands are the best IMHO.

    Rainbow Six series of games, Armed Assault 2, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. A few tactical type shooters you may be interested in. I preferred some of the older Rainbow Six games compared to the newer ones. It just seems they got a bit less tactical and more -arcadey-.

    You have a 5 year old midrange card, I doubt any game will look good on your computer.
