What level would that be??

Swat and Rainbow Six are probably the best series for tactical shooters on PC.

Shalebridge Cradle.

The Haunted Cathedral levels are pretty scary in the first games though...

Operation Flash Pint (if you want something imposible, play it with friends).

Vegas 1 and 2

#11 Posted by Apillow (1062 posts) -

Buy ArmA off of Steam for $29.95 and enjoy a real tactical shooter. It also has tons of mods,island,sound enhancments, and etc at armaholic.com

Also download the patches. The demo is crap compared to the full game.

Vegas? Tactic? COME ON!

The game its awesom, but it is like a quake 3 with a little of tactic and real weapons.

R63 is the last proper tactical fps pc the PC, and unfortunately its still the best.

there not even tactical shooters.

#22 Posted by vash47 (2171 posts) -
I loved SWAT 4.
#23 Posted by BlackAlpha666 (2614 posts) -
SWAT 4 and Armed Assault. SWAT 4 for CQB and ArmA for open ended outdoors action. Both of them have a good random co-op mode. Both of them allow the use of realistic tactics.
#24 Posted by Baselerd (5104 posts) -
Rogue Spear, Ghost Recon 1 & 2, and Operation flashpoint. The "tactical shooters" nowadays are complete crap. There are no tactics to them. They've all devolved into linear shooters thanks to the console market.

Unreal Tournament, CoD series, Quake, Gears, World in Conflict, Supreme Commander and uh... Maybe NHL 2008.

How are those fps games?:roll:

#28 Posted by Makemap (3751 posts) -

Rainbow Six Los Vegas is the best, not many people like Ghost Recon, or Swat 4.

I got bored of Sawt 4 and Ghost Recon is a pain in the butt!(Difficulty on easy still hard).

:D

How is your opinion merited? The fact of the matter is that those are great tactical shooters.
#30 Posted by foxhound_fox (89833 posts) -
I hear that Raven Shield is among the best.

The Battlefield series and Counter Strike.kieranb2000

If by Battlefield you mean "who is the biggest jet/chopper whore who team kills just so they can get the next vehicle spawn and rape the entire map for their own perverted pleasure, while those who want to shoot rather than fly get strafed and bombed into blinding rage" then yeah Battlefield is most definitely the most tactical shooter I've ever played in my life.

#32 Posted by Baranga (14217 posts) -
Republic Commando.
#33 Posted by RazorGR (1605 posts) -
Get SWAT4 Gold edition. It's a great tactical shooter.

Oh, you misunderstood me. I was talking about Battlefield 2142 :P

I hate to say it but that "just" buy the slightest margin counts.
#39 Posted by fenriz275 (1179 posts) -
I recommended GRAW earlier but if you don't mind playing an older game the old Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon games are more "realistic" imo.

The Battlefield series and Counter Strike.kieranb2000

wtf! those are some of the least tactical games out, by far, the whole ghost recon series is tactical, and so is america's army

Any Tom Clancy game that is not a Console port is good on PC.

I agree 100% on this one. The moment those games started getting dumbed down and produced for consoles and then ported for the PC was the moment those games became pseudo tactical FPS. Just notice the disparity between reviews of the same game just on different systems.

Ghost Recon and SWAT 4 are the best tactical

WHAT??? Counter Strike???? Can you say, "Twitch" shooter? Tactical?! I think you need to get out a dictionary; that word clearly doesn't mean what you think it means! ha.
#46 Posted by Sausageson (85 posts) -

Makemap

You do realize that even 9+ years after it's release, there are mods still being made for Ghost Recon and the total number of mods fills up 7 DVDs? Name one other game that has done that. What is this Rainbow Six Los Vegas? I knew that Ubi made a R6 Vegas, but never heard of Los Vegas being released.

#49 Posted by WhiteKnight77 (12018 posts) -

For the record, Rainbow Six 3 was only released on consoles, not the PC. Rainbow Six: Raven Shield was released on the PC and not consoles.

On topic, Rainbow Six/R6: Rogue Spear and Ghost Recon (before getting Ubified) as well as VBS would be my answer. Still, I am awaiting a new game that intends to take the Tac-Sim crown and it is being made by the former RSE lead level designer, John Sonedecker with help from current and former Green Berets.

This list has my seal of approval.

I had forgotten about H&D2! *reinstalls*
