My friend and I have been looking for a decent First Person Shooter which has online play for a while now, although we can't make our minds up as to which game to get. We used to play games such as the following together & got loads of fun out of them:

- Battlefield 2

- Battlefield 2142

- Counter Strike: Source

- Enemy Territory: Quake Wars

- Call Of Duty including all the expansions etc

- Unreal Tournament 2004

These are all pretty fast paced & require some teamwork, therefore it was fun for us as we'd talk over Vent and move around together in order to complete objectives etc. We then bought Arma II around a week ago, but ended up returning it to the shop as it didn't really have the fast paced type of atmosphere we were so used to. It was more of a simulator than an actual 'game' really.

Anyway, we're now looking for a fairly new game which matches our criteria, therefore if you guys can recommend anything decent I'd really appreciate it. We were thinking of something like Team Fortress 2 or maybe Brothers in arms 3? We're not sure. We were even considering rebuying CS:Source each as we both lost our original copies, but maybe there's something better out there now.

Oh and one last thing I should add is that we got a lot of enjoyment out of ranking up & being able to check our stats online, although this is just a plus really and doesn't particularly matter.

Thanks a lot.

Tf2 is a total blast. The online community is very strong.

team fortress 2. its great fun and i really want to play it when my stuff gets here. i also recomend left 4 dead or the upcoming left 4 dead 2 which requires a lot of teamwork and can be loads of fun with the right people. and if you doubt that i suggest you look on youtube for kilplixism. just look at some of his videos and it shows how fun left 4 dead can be with friends.

How about Unreal Tournament III? From what I played of the demo, it was pretty intense. But Team Fortress 2 is a sure winner if you find a good team.

Team Fortress 2 or Left 4 Dead 2 when it comes out, no sense in buying the first one when the sequel comes out in a couple months


I don't spend enough time here

Depends on what you really want but if for some reason you haven't given Halo a try you should an also think about going for a third person game like gears of war.
