    Perhaps the most memorable thing about it will be the narrative and bullet-time, and in truth they are the best aspects.

    Max Payne

    Perhaps the most memorable thing about it will be the narrative and bullet-time, and in truth they are the best aspects.

    Being a bit of a regular shopper at Half Price Bookstores, I've always managed to find numbers of Max Payne copies in stock, generally the PS2 version, but every once in a while a PC or Xbox version. They never stayed f... Read Full Review

    When it came out it was nothing new, but still features fun and interesting gameplay and story.

    Star Wars Dark Forces

    When it came out it was nothing new, but still features fun and interesting gameplay and story.

    With the release of Doom in 1993-- (Shutup, everyone knows the goddamn history already!) Alright, alright... Anyways-- LucasArts released Star Wars Dark Forces, their own entry into the First-Person Shooter... Read Full Review

    While repetitive and and over done, it makes for a great portable shooter.

    Medal of Honor Heroes 2

    While repetitive and and over done, it makes for a great portable shooter.

    For the PSP system, they're really not a whole ton of FPS titles available. In fact, not including titles on the Playstation Network Store, the oly commercial FPS titles I can think of are Medal of Honor Heroes and Hero... Read Full Review

    A fun Singleplayer romp filled with an intriguing story along with decent gunplay makes for a surprisingly good shooter.

    Chaser

    A fun Singleplayer romp filled with an intriguing story along with decent gunplay makes for a surprisingly good shooter.

    When I found Chaser I really wasn't expecting a whole lot from it really. In fact, I was only getting it for some LAN parties at my school. So I checked out the multiplayer and became rather interested in what the res... Read Full Review

    Hard as it may be, MKA is still a fantastic game for GBA.

    Mortal Kombat Advance

    Hard as it may be, MKA is still a fantastic game for GBA.

    While the AI derserves some practice, if you can get down a couple of the characters big moves you may well be in for a great fighting adventure on Gameboy (DS in my case though). While it doesn't have much story, i... Read Full Review

    While not as good as it is on PC, and while flawed with latency, it does pass the time.

    Doom (Long Box)

    While not as good as it is on PC, and while flawed with latency, it does pass the time.

    Doom and Doom II for the PC were both pheomenal games that had great graphics, smooth gameplay, and plenty of blood and gore. Playstation Doom combines a number of levels from Ultimate Doom and Doom II into one game of ... Read Full Review

    Muscle Cars '76

    It sports good graphics and some exciting action, but it really falls short.

    Muscle Car '76 is a bare bones budget racing game that sports some rather good graphics for its release. Created by Globalstar Software, a budget title software company, players choose to race as one of 8 cars on four d... Read Full Review

    Warpath: Jurassic Park is a 3D fighting game (Like Mortal Kombat) set in the awe-inspiring Jurassic Park Universe. Warpath also happens to be a completely underrated and underscored adventure. While graphical glitc... Read Full Review

    Why it didn't turn out as well as the platform versions will never be known, but PC Powerslave is still a ball of fun.

    PowerSlave

    Why it didn't turn out as well as the platform versions will never be known, but PC Powerslave is still a ball of fun.

    Powerslave, the semi-suucesful offspring of the now defunct Lobotomy Software, is still even today a noteworthy shooter in some respects, or at least it sounds like the console versions are. Rather than being built off ... Read Full Review

    A Doom II addon that came far too late.

    HacX

    A Doom II addon that came far too late.

    HacX (Pronounced Hacks) is a Doom II addon produced by Bango Software... Right around when Quake II was coming out. So, HacX was largely ignored, but not becase it was bad, but because well, Quake. The addon brings... Read Full Review

    A good shooter with cool graphics, neat weapons and features, and the best Wolf3D engine based game around!

    Rise of the Triad: Dark War

    A good shooter with cool graphics, neat weapons and features, and the best Wolf3D engine based game around!

    Dual pistols, Heat Seeking missles, bloody explosions, and killer columns are found throughout the land that makes up Apogee's Rise of the Triad, or as many abbreviate it, RotT. Triad was created by Apogee Software,... Read Full Review

    Boring as Hell, but with an odd charm.

    Operation Body Count

    Boring as Hell, but with an odd charm.

    Capstone software I say is quite well known for their budget games like Corridor 7 and Blake Stone. However, Body Count, using a modified WOlf3D engine like C7, seems to be a flat out poor job, well, almost. Firstly,... Read Full Review

    It has its moments, and that is what counts.

    So here we have ID4 the game, based off of the huge blockbuster movie of the late 90's. While kids were playing Doom, everyone else was watching ID4. Apparently, FOX also wanted the kids to be involved too, so they mad... Read Full Review

    The Duke has gone Atomic! With Duke Nukem 3D in 1997, and its succes, who didn't expect this? Even today (2010) I find this game to be truly AWSOME. The sounds, the fights, the girls, and the Pig Cops. Atomic edi... Read Full Review

    Another grand edition to the Dark Forces continuity, Outcast is most notable for its 'modibility'.

    Filled with ducks, dives, and Gungans!

    While Super Bombad Racing is no match for LucasArts other racing themed games such as Epsiode 1 Racer or Racer Revenge, SBR nonetheless can fill you with guilty pleasure of Kart Racing. Being able to choose from a varie... Read Full Review

    Final Doom

    Final Doom will have you gasping for air as you drown in this endless sea of blood and glory.

    With the mighty success of Ultimate Doom and Doom II, Id Software apparently felt that they should give Doom one final show before closing it down to make room for Quake. At the same time, they seemed to be to lazy to d... Read Full Review

    Doom II

    While nothing like the Original, Doom II introduces lots of new characters to splatter across the floor.

    Doom II uses the exact same engine as its predacessor, introducing more ghoulish beasts like the mighty Mancubus, scurrying Arachnotron, and the evil Arch-Vile, as well as more terrifying weapons and powerups such as the... Read Full Review
