    Ok, so if you've never played Half-Life 2 or even if you played the original, this is a must own for any FPS fan
    it's not quite Gears or Halo, but the story's a little deeper than both and I found it to be a more enjoyable experience than both

    it's also on Ps3

    I might just pick this up on Ps3 for the Team Fortress multiplayer considering the online aspect is free.

    I remember making a joke about this game. Something about getting someone's mom's orange box.

    Are you telling me that there are features in the console versions not available on the PC version?

    Half Life rocks. I expcet TF2 to be great, but if they are shafting the PC community that put Valve on the map, I might give it a pass.

    by the way
    after linking to 3 box arts now, I come to the conclusion that this may be one of the worst box arts ever

    I have HL2 for PC.

    And of course, HL, and its expansions.

    Counter Strike is an essential game, the only net play FPS you really need.
    At least, it was until cheating ruined it.

    I love the FPS's....guess they just feel a bit more realistic. Of course I have HL2 for the XboX, but does this game really offer enough new stuff to buy?

    Other than Gears, what killer FPS's are on 360? I really haven't been paying much attention for about a year.

    Bobo, the original post may answer the "new stuff" question
    but simply there's a whole new episode and a ..... ah hell, just look at the box
    FPS on 360 (or Shooters, as they call it)
    http://xbox360.ign.com/index/review...ribute=article.overall_rating&sort.order=desc
    Gears
    Halo
    Rainbow Six : Vegas
    Advanced Warfighter
    F.E.A.R.
    Prey
    Perfect Dark Zero
    Medal of Honor
    Call of Duty
    Far Cry
    Call of Juarez
    Quake
    Doom
    .............etc.............

    there's plenty of FPS on 360

    edit:
    BioShock
    Lost Planet
    even if the critics consider one an RPG ,the other an Action game
