Here is a non-exhaustive list.
Time Splitters 2
Released in 2002, the second installment of TimeSplitters brought its 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 ill-intentioned aliens. The FPS had the particularity of offering a local multiplayer mode inviting 4 players to come together and play on the same screen for fun. It promises players hours and hours of fun, thanks in particular to its crazy arsenal, ranging from simple pistols to plasma rifles.

Released in 1997 on Nintendo 64 by Rare, GoldenEye 007 is still a must, especially thanks to its multiplayer mode. The title is even considered one of the games that kicked off the FPS as we know it today. James Bond is here designated to cover operations related to the armed satellite Golden Eye. Your mission begins in a Russian complex and will expand throughout 12 varied environments. If we know that a remaster / remake was planned and then canceled on Xbox 360, the rumors around the latter came back in force at the start of 2022. In any case, the project seems to be stagnating momentarily: Darren Unger, a Twitter user, asked in July last where it was; journalist Jeff Grubb replied that the game is currently located “in limbo“because of the war in Ukraine. So to be continued.
Perfect Dark is an FPS developed by Rare that has made Nintendo 64 players happy. stealthy and had fun gadgets like the famous mini-camera to deploy. What we preferred was above all its complete multiplayer, first with the 17 levels of the campaign playable in split screen and the “Counter-Operation” mode which gave the possibility to a player to embody an opponent. The development of a new episode of Perfect Dark was also unveiled at the Game Awards 2020. This year, we even concocted an article soberly baptized for you: “Perfect Dark: how Rare’s game revolutionized the FPS on N64?”
Killzone is considered a great technological showcase of the PlayStation 3, in addition to being an incredibly immersive and successful FPS. As the ISA coalition launches a major offensive on the planet of the Helghasts, a nation of former Earth colonists with expansionist views. The player takes on the role of Sev, an ISA soldier who is 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 its release, JV’s editorial staff wrote: “Killzone 2 combines hard-to-miss gameplay with stunning execution and stands out as one of the PS3’s best titles, and perhaps even its best FPS.”
At E3 2008, the Zipper studio announced its new game during the Sony conference: MAG: Massive Action Game, a multiplayer action game that could pit up to 256 players against each other! Suffice to say that this particularity had something to talk about at the time. Each individual controls a character that is part of a squad of 8 players commanded by an officer, also played by a player, who has the greatest experience. And the bet was frankly successful: “The title of Zipper Interactive is not content to stupidly gather up to 256 participants, it promises you above all dynamic and rhythmic clashes. Indeed the squad system and the profusion of secondary objectives allow you not to lose the north in parts which do not however suffer from any dead time.“
Resistance: Fall of Man
After the launch of a fourth Ratchet on PlayStation 2, Insomniac is working on Resistance: Fall of Man. Rather unknown, Resistance: Fall of Man is the first FPS to see the light of day on PlayStation 3 and accompanies the launch of the machine released on November 11, 2006 in Japan. The setting is set in 1951, in a world that did not know the Second World War, where somewhat clumsy Russian scientists unleashed a rather catastrophic virus on the local population. The title, considered very beautiful when it was released, offers players the opportunity to witness great battles between American soldiers and dreadful Chimera. Quite basic in the background, the experience had on the other hand a pleasurable 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 entitled to a Remastered version of the game released on Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One.
