Platform: Xbox 360, PS3, PC | Developer: Dice | Publisher: EA | Release Date: March, 2010
Probably the only game that has given Modern Warfare/ Modern Warfare 2 a tough competition. In a segment of the genre where Activision was killing almost every game released, EA released Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which was met with rave reviews, and was, indeed, a worthy competitor of the highly successful Modern Warfare series. It managed to stand on its own, and unlike the Call of Duty franchise, featured very realistic shooting mechanics. With an exciting, thrilling single player campaign, and an awesome multiplayer mode to boasting great level design and spectacular missions (and great replay value), Battlefield: Bad Company 2 proved to be an excellent First Person Shooter, one that will always be remembered as time goes on.
Platform: Xbox 360, PC | Developer: Valve | Publisher: Valve | Release Date: November, 2009
Valve- the big daddy of the FPS genre, or so the gamers say these days. And for good reason. With title slike Team Fortress, Half Life 2 and Counter Strike having been released under the Valve banner, they sure are quality developers in the First Person Shooter genre. Another one of their awesome offerings this generation is Left 4 Dead 2, sequel to the successful zombie shooter, Left 4 Dead. Building upon the praised concepts introduced by Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2 became a fan favourite almost immediately upon its release. With a great online mode, exciting campaign -especially when played co-op- and a gameplay engine that offered nothing but pure fun, Left 4 Dead 2 will always remain one of our favourite games in the FPS genre.
Platform: PS3 | Developer: Guerrilla Games | Publisher: SCEA | Release Date: February, 2009
The sequel to what was probably the most disappointing game last generation, Killzone 2 was a polar opposite of its forefather in every possible way- it was exciting, it was thrilling, it was polished, and it was simply incredible. Featuring the most awesome visuals one can ever see in any console shooter, an exciting, thrilling campaign, addictive multiplayer and an epic scale of production values, Killzone 2 immediately became one of the hottest games in the Shooter genre, and for good reason. Truly Killzone 2 is one of the most overwhelming and awe-inspiring games I have ever played this generation, and for more reasons that one, it stands out as one of the best PlayStation 3 games ever.
