Game news The 7 Best FPS Console Games That Made PC Gamers Jealous
PC players will never stop repeating it: FPS is better on the computer if you want to frag with maximum style. But in the history of video games, there are still console-specific FPSs that have caused a stir and may have already made keyboard enthusiasts want to take up the controller for a moment. Here is a non-exhaustive list.
Time Splitters 2
Released in 2002, the second installment of TimeSplitters brought his letters of nobility to the series. In this particular universe, players are invited to discover strange places like Neo Tokyo or Planet X to face rather bad intentions. The FPS had the distinction of offering a local multiplayer mode that invited 4 players to meet and play on the same screen for fun. It promises players hours of fun, especially thanks to its crazy arsenal, ranging from simple pistols to plasma rifles. If the gameplay in TimeSplitters 2 wasn’t particularly revolutionary at the time, its action was devilishly addictive..

Released in 1997 on the Nintendo 64 by Rare, GoldenEye 007 is still a must-play, especially thanks to its multiplayer mode. The title is even considered one of the games that started FPS as we know it today. James Bond is here assigned to cover operations related to the armed satellite Golden Eye. Your mission begins in a Russian complex and will expand through 12 different environments. If we know that a remaster/remake was planned and then canceled on Xbox 360, the rumors surrounding the latter came back into force at the start of 2022. In any case, the project seems to be stagnating for a moment: Darren Unger, a Twitter user , asked last July where it was; journalist Jeff Grubb responded that the game is currently “in limbo“because of the war in Ukraine. So continue.
Perfect Dark is an FPS developed by Rare that made Nintendo 64 gamers happy, stealthy and had fun gadgets like the famous mini camera to implement. What we preferred above all was its full multiplayer, first with the campaign’s 17 split-screen levels and the “Counter-Operation” mode, which allowed a player to embody an opponent. The development of a new episode of Perfect Dark was also revealed at the Game Awards 2020. This year we even created an article soberly dubbed for you: “Perfect Dark: how Rare’s game revolutionized FPS on N64?”
Kill zone 2
Killzone is considered a great technological showcase for the PlayStation 3, in addition to being an incredibly immersive and successful FPS. As the ISA coalition launches a major offensive on the planet Helghasts, a nation of former Earth colonists with expansionist views. The player assumes the role of Sev, an ISA soldier sent to fight a ruthless enemy on his own territory. The game featured a multiplayer mode that allowed up to 32 participants to compete online. At the time of publication, JV’s editors wrote: “Combining hard-to-miss gameplay with stunning execution, Killzone 2 stands out as one of the PS3’s best titles, and perhaps even its best FPS.”
At E3 2008, Zipper studio announced its new game during the Sony conference: MAG: Massive Action Game, a multiplayer action game that can pit up to 256 players against each other! Suffice it to say that this peculiarity had something to talk about at the time. Each person controls a character who is part of a team of 8 players commanded by an officer, also played by a player who has the most experience. And the bet was, frankly, successful: “The title of Zipper Interactive is not content with stupidly gathering up to 256 participants, it promises you above all dynamic and rhythmic confrontations. The squad system and the abundance of secondary objectives do not actually allow you to lose the nord in parts, which, however, does not suffer from any dead time.“
Resistance: The Fall of Man
After the launch of a fourth Ratchet on PlayStation 2, Insomniac is working on Resistance: Fall of Man. Fairly unknown, Resistance: Fall of Man is the first FPS to see the light of day on the PlayStation 3 and accompanies the launch of the machine, which was released on November 11, 2006 in Japan. The setting is set in 1951, in a world that didn’t know World War II, where some clumsy Russian scientists unleashed a rather catastrophic virus on the local population. The title, which was considered very beautiful when it was released, allows players to witness great battles between American soldiers and fearsome Chimera. Quite basic in the background, the experience in return had a pleasant armament.
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter
Released in 1997, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter became one of the Nintendo 64’s most popular games within a month of its release and was even considered one of its best FPS. As Turok, Earth’s new protector, you must hunt dinosaurs to make them an extinct race again. The game, which sold 1.5 million copies, was eligible for a remastered version of the game released on Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One. Here and also here we have an article full of anecdotes to share with you: “Nintendo 64: Indian, guns and dinosaurs, Turok celebrates its 25th anniversary in Japan!.”
