I'm looking for a new PC game to waste time on. More specifically, what I'm looking for is a modern warfare first person shooter with a good single player campaign. Call of Duty 4 is an excellent example of the kind of thing I'm looking for, which I own and have played through multiple times.

I also own Battlefield 2, but it's a primarily multiplayer game, so not what I'm looking for. Same with Counter-Strike: good game, but no single player campaign. My internet is going to be extremely limited for the next few weeks, courtesy of our bastard ISP deciding to throttle us to near dial-up speeds, so multiplayer is pretty much out of the question.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. It doesn't have to be a new game, either.

Vegas 2, from the same series, is a pretty good flick. Although the weapons are - as with most games - very unrealistic.

The only one I can think of from recent times that I've played other than CoD4 is Battlefield: Bad Company, which has a reasonably entertaining single-player campaign. It's not your typical 'soldier saving the world' story either, which is a welcome change.

Any of the Ghost Recon or Rainbow Six titles, Shadow Ops: Red Mercury, Line of Site Vietnam, Vietcong, Delta Force Blackhawk Down, etc. Not too many in this genre of the CoD4 caliber really.

I have Bad Company on my Xbox 360, it's an excellent game. For the record, I'm mainly looking at PC titles here.

I'll take a look into those, thanks.

Your suggestions are much appreciated! :)

SWAT 4 Vietcong Operation Flashpoint/Armed Assault

All have good AI, and the last three also have good coop modes.

Well in that case I can only offer older shooters that you've probably already played. The only games I've really purchased recently, aside from CoD, BF: BC and a couple of driving games, are futuristic or RPG in nature. After all, when Fallout 3 offers you a 'nuclear bomb catapult' as a handheld weapon, you just can't say no.

Fallout 3 is excellent, I actually forgot about that. The disk should still be in a drawer here somewhere...I'll have to install that one too. I never did beat it. =p

Reckon you would've played FEAR already but if not I'd recommend it. Finally got around to playing it myself a few weeks back and while it's not great, it is pretty enjoyable. The supernatural elements might disappoint but it predominantly comes down to modern warfare in any case, since soldiers and soldiers in power armor form the bulk of the enemies you'll encounter, so it's mostly gunfights anyway.

If you can hold out for a couple of weeks, the new Red Faction game is due out at the start of June. It's third-person rather than first-person, but when you combine GeoMod with Havok and seventh-gen technology, you know you're in for a hell of a time nevertheless.

STALKER, despite being slammed a lot, shines when it comes to shootouts (Clear Sky is the better of the two in that respect, Shadow Of Chernobyl throws you against mostly mutants for the middle third of the campaign but I will say that the shootout in Chernobyl is a wild ride). However you might feel that the 'Resident Evil-y' aspects tacked on might detract from the action. Personally I feel it promotes concentration as well as a quick trigger finger but other people felt the action and survival elements didn't mesh well. It's still a game that should be given a playthrough because it is rather different to most of what we get these days.

Feeling retro? MechWarrior is always an awesome choice. First-person shooters may be fun, but so is smashing shit to pieces in a giant robot. Combine the two and you got a series that really, really needs a seventh-gen sequel.

Pretty much anything with a Delta Force or Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six/Ghost Recon logo on the front will appease fans of modern warfare shooters. They certainly do the trick for me when I'm in the market for such games.

I personally feel Delta Force is still among the better games when it comes to capturing the feel of modern covert warfare, despite the age of the games. The upcoming Delta Force: Xtreme 2 is well overdue.

GRAW is easily one of my favourite shooters, mixing what I liked about Delta Force with what I liked about SWAT4.

Speaking of SWAT4, it deserves some major wub. Great for co-op or singleplayer, it might not be what a shooter fan expects due to the cop stuff but it's still a great game. And if you just want to shoot everyone, you can use the custom play mode to set up a building full of armed terrorists with the only condition being "bring order to chaos" then kill whoever you want, so it provides that too.

If you've got Steam access you can get Half-Life 2: Lost Coast for free - that ATI/NVidia promo is still running. I never bothered installing it myself, but y'know, could end up being decent.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
