Well Splinter Cell isn't really a shooter at all and COD4 isn't very tactical

Splinter Cell isn't really a shooter, and CoD is pretty arcadey.

RB6 is the best tactical shooter IMO.

Yes, I have so that's why I said it isn't really a shooter, because one part of the multiplayer doesn't make it a shooter, there's space shooting parts in KotOR but I wouldn't call it a shooter either. And CoD is arcadey. Saying that you will die if you pop your head out in the open isn't an arguement for it being tactical, any game with a sniper rifle that can happen.

okay you may have me on splinter cell i admit. but you calling call of duty 4 arcadey is a terrible failure

Ghost Recon Advanced Warrior 1 and2 - simply because they have awesome single player and the BEST multiplayer for 3rd person shooters.

I never said CoD4, I've only said CoD because I've only played 1,2, and 3 all of which are arcadey, so I don't see why it would be a difference with four.

Whadda bout' da Outfit? :P

Seriously, GRAW may just be the best thing to happen to the Xbox 360. (Seeing as it was truly the first "next-gen shooter")

Rainbow Six Vegas hands down.

well dont have that many choices. call of duty 4 is tactical and neither is splinter cell. rainbow six hands down.

Arcade shooter is more like Halo, UT, and CS. Bunny hopping snipers, jumping over someone while blasting them in the head with a shotgun, lots of over the top maneuvers.

CoD(I've played 2 & 3) are more like Action shooters. Somewhat fast paced, frantic, but alot more precise. Leaning more towards a tactical game.

Vegas..

Call of duty 4 isn't much tactical is it?

Splitner cell is not really considered a shooter. Call of Duty 4 is hardly tactical.

RSV gets my vote :D

R6V was the best so far in my opinion. I own both GRAWs and they were good as well. I just thought R6 was more fun. Both single players and multis are good for all three of those games though. R6 doesn't get old as fast.

rainbow six vegas is the best tactical shooters, and one of my favorite games. hopefully kane & lynch will be just as good or almost as good though :) btw, splinter cell double agent is not a tactical shooter. tactical shooters are more than just the multiplayer, they include the single player to be in that title. PLUS the MP for splinter cell is not very tactical either.

Ive only played GRAW1+2 and Vegas out of your list. I voted for Vegas. not sure why. I like them both equally.
