    fear combat is another free multi player, you just have to register and download(and install :) )
    depending on how new your rig is, try cod2 or cod 4.

    fear, is a fast paced spam fest(usualy)
    cod2 is a little more tactical, unless you are on TOG AU2 when the extreme mod is running, then it is very much like cod4.
    cod4 can be a spam fest or very tactical, depending on who's on the server, what map you are playing and what weapons you chose.
    I havn't played QW, or cod-uo, so can't comment.
    MoH Airborne Assault is an awsome single player, check it out.
    cod4 is also very good for single play, but doesn't last very long by comparison to MoH-AA

    For Graphics and Sound in no particular order

    FFOW

    COD 4

    and the best for last

    Crysis

    BF2 is still the best squad based game IMO.

    Defends what your looking for really if its shelf life BF2, FFOW and COD 4 due to online ranking etc.

    If its single player Crysis.

    Mate, a little more info on what it is that you like, or want will go a long way to helping us help you. "Shooter" covers a whole lot of ground, and there's really not going to be a proper answer for you. However, give us some extra info, such as your system limitations, weather you want internet gaming, good story, futuristic, realistic? There are all sorts of different styles to suit all sorts of different tastes.

    For me, I'm not a fan of any of the games mentioned, as they seem to be too fast and "fake" for me. I prefer realism type games. But these are generally VERY hard, and very tedious, with long breaks of little action. It doesn't suit everybody. Unreal Tournament 3 is about as opposite as you could get, and appeals to many because it's fast and completely furious.

    Then we can get into mods! :) Mods are "modifications" of existing games, and are almost always free, so long as you have the original game they're based off. A game like Battlefield 1942 was a WWII shooter, and the mod Desert Combat brought it to present day, set in Iraq during the first Gulf War. It changed the game so widely it's regarded as it's own title - but still needs BF:1942 to run.

    So there are SO many "flavours" out there that it's really hard to suggest a "nice shooter". Give us your basic system specs, your budget, your preferences and likes, and maybe we'll be able to give you something better to aim for.

    oh ok then mate.. I really like shooter games that is base on World War or Military or should I say realistic. I want some story in the game. I don't like aliens as my enemies.. It doesn't matter if its online or single player I can manage that.. AI or Human it's fine with me. As for the Specs I'm a little bit out-dated and I don't know what are the specs of my PC maybe games that are like Half-life or CS. Those games run to my PC smoothly.

    Rainbow six Vegas and the newer and more improved Rainbow six Vegas 2 are both very good and Tactical FPS, Also there is an online Co-Op mode (you and a mate can take on the Computer AI over LAN or The Net) and straight forward team based Online Maps...Set on Realistic Mode it is extremely Challenging (Get hit once in the right place and that's yer lot and the Blur effect when you do get hit is very disorientating) also you have to keep yer eye on the your Computer controlled Assault team by providing covering fire for them.
    Features also include Grappling (climb down a rope and crash thought windows for the element of surprise) and and Run to cover (stand next to a wall press the cover button and you' got to a top half 3rd person view where you can either take careful aim or Spray and Pray
    You have a choice of going in Loud and Heavy or attach a silencer to take out the bad guys quietly as not to alert the NPCs of your whereabouts.
    set into days world you are equipped with both Thermal and starlight night vision (but be wary so are some of the NPCs in Vegas 2) are well as grenades(lethal and non-lethal) and flashbangs, you can also custum your weapon loadout, appearence and Camo Sets and has alot of ingame unlock challenges and upgrades as well as a set of realistic training missions which you can undertake with a NPC team of 2 men or Lonewolf

    A couple of oldies that can be had cheap but are still worth the effort are Brothers in Arms Earned in Blood, a excellent TFPS and Swat4, where the challenge lies in not killing anyone.

    Agreed SWAT 4 is brilliant and the great feature about it is that it randomises Bad guy/Hostages location everytime you play

    If you are chasing a more realistic FPS, then try Americas Army. Its a free download and it is developed by the American Army

    Cheers
