Quake II is another excellent shooter from id Software and also completely unrelated to the original game, minus the name.
A seemingly forgotten game with a huge focus on extreme over-the-top violence.
Quake is considered a classic and rightfully so. It’s only disappointing to know the series would become very inconsistent with sequels that share no real relation to the original game other than the Quake name.
Doom 3 is a great game, just not a great Doom game. The changes made in the BFG Edition may be a positive or negative, depending on your preference.
If you’re looking for a tactical shooter stay away but if you are looking for a fun cover shooter, Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 should scratch that itch.
Painkiller: Hell & Damnation is a fun ride if you obtain all of the DLC. The base game alone is still fun but also a very condensed version of the original Painkiller.
An underrated title, SWAT: Global Strike Team is a fun game with plenty of replay value and excellent audio design.
Star Wars: Battlefront is an excellent entry in the Star Wars series of video games even if it is a bit repetitive. It’s dated by today’s standards but still great fun.
Ghost Recon is still one of the best tactical shooters to date but the limited tactical control holds it back in some ways.
SWAT: Elite Force is a mod for SWAT 4 that improves so many aspects making it almost impossible to go back to the vanilla game.
