Best Xbox 360 First Person Shooters

The Top Ten

1 Halo 3

after 3 years of play, everyday is still amazingly exhilarating. One of the most monumental fps's to ever hit gaming. What an experience that I continue even today!

really addicting you can drive jeeps and helicopters the online is awesome my favorite weapon is the sparten laser

With a storyline as touching as Last of Us, a multiplayer as unique and awesome as Modern Warfare 2, and one of the greatest video game characters of all time. Halo 3 is, and still is my favorite game ever! Not even the other halo games in the series can compare to the overall awesomeness of this Xbox classic.

BEAST of a game, all the halo games are.

2 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

The best game ever in terms of graphics and user actions. Waiting for the next set of advance environment to be released...

As much as I love halo, cod4 takes the cake. This game was what put Call of Duty on the map as a gaming legend, a title it truly deserved with this game.

Looks awesome I say that everyone should consider getting this game. I will sometime soon. I hope that everyone else should enjoy too!

Best game ever

3 Fallout 3

Don't have this game but have played some of it at my cousins and it is really fun, totally gonna get this and new Vegas

This is a AWESOME game in any collection. The World was so rich in detail, and a thriving story. The World Felt Alive, everyone struggling, taking you into the devastated D. C living among the natives. I think YOU Should buy this!
This SMASHES Call of Duty any day!

Cool game if you have point lookout and broken steel but I think that Battlefield 3 is better

Enjoyed very much as well as FO LV, waiting for FO4

4 BioShock

Bioshock is extremely fine tuned and elegant in all. This truly remarkably deep story driven game vigorously pulls you into the abyss itself. With unremarkable fps/rpg action intense gameplay, great voiceovers and beautiful graphics and setting. This is what a game should be... In short, It delivers.

This is probably one of my favorite shooting games of all time beautiful graphics gripping story nice weapon upgrades an there's no feeling like seeing a big daddy...

This is one of the greatest shooters of all time

Super fun game

5 The Orange Box

While I slightly take halo 3 over half life 2 which are both amazing I should add, the orange box contains 3 of valve (best game company ever) greatest games pre 2008 if you include all the half life's together, this destroys every thing the competition can throw at it.

TF2 Half-life 2 Portal? Wow you 360 gamers must be retarded, this should be rated the best video game of all time!

Have played all of the Call of Duty games and all of the Halo games and have to admit, this one is still my favorite.

worst ever

6 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

In my opinion this should be like number 2 or 3 because it has awesome graphics awesome guns. It's also the only game that has Ghost in it.

Best Call of Duty ever.

This game has great graphics, a great story line and better guns than the other Call of Duty games.

Best game ever

7 Battlefield 3

Its a good game with high graphics but the camping missions are too small I completed all the camping missions in 2 hours. Yes really it is som small but other wise multiplayer, tanks, jets are simply awesome...

Best shooter ever made. The graphics and gameplay are unmatched and there are endless options for strategy in multiplayer. Battlefield 3 is simply a game way ahead of its time.

Best multipalyer ever made. You can use tanks, planes and jeeps. A wall saves you in Call of Duty but not in battlefield. It's hard to be a camper because you can just blow the wall behind him with c4. Fun for hours and big maps

Amazing graphics and game play

8 Call of Duty: World at War

One of my favorite games ever, I just play single player campaign but its endlessly enjoyable, really prefer this one to the modern based one, Be great if call of duty creators went back to historical roots like this

Great environments awesome fire fights love the history

Still play the campaign every few months... Awesome visuals and historic weaponry.

It's pretty fun but not so good graphics for the date it came out

9 Call of Duty: Black Ops

Brilliant campaign I couldn't take my eyes of multiplayer and zombies is way better then bo2 zombies will ever be this is one of my favourite games

Pretty cool campaign and I love the shotgun the Dragon breath

Best storyline of any Call of Duty

10 Battlefield: Bad Company

I love oh no an enemy tank is coming, I'm cornered wait no I can blow a hole in the wall

Best game for kids who can't play M rated games

The Contenders

11 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

This game is boss but bo3 is beast

It's a great game

Call of Duty 3 is higher than BO2! Oh he'll no! This will not stand!

12 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

It's kept me occupied for over 300 hours no other game as given me the longevity in comparison to MW3.

It ha simpers graphics and amazing gameplay and story

Very good, never had this much fun playing a video game

Cool game not as good as BF4!

13 Left 4 Dead

Left 4 dead is the very first first person shooter I've ever played and I love it. It is the best shoot em' up zombie game you'll ever find! Although, since it was made in 2008 the graphics aren't very good witch is probably the only flaw about it. It also is very dark and scary (especially the hunter). In my opinion it is better than left 4 dead 2 (2009).

This game is awesome! I have always loved zombie and fps games and this game is the best one in both categories that I've ever played. - Zorgoth

Very great and never on hotel on online V. S game be the first to run by a window you will fall and die - Hunter17p

Brilliant Game! More fun than any others in the current list.

14 Borderlands 2

Great story with amazing characters, lots to do and so many guns! DLC Feels like an add-on rather than a necessity which is a problem modern shooters seem to have. The classes are so unique and all the characters that represent them are to. Graphics do still hold up and the lack of modern gaming tropes doesn't hold it back.

Love the guns so many god it is fun

Best game ever

Best ever

15 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas

TCRSV2 is by far a better incarnation of this franchise - shame they didn't make a 3. Gameplay is very good with emphasis on utilizing your team mates better if you want to complete successfully. Also the hunt games can be quite tricky with those pesky AI enemies are quite sneaky.

This game is fun I played it at a friend's house and just went ham on my own guys on multiplayer and got thrown from the game lol

This game is better than Call of Duty and still is. only problem is the very difficult terrorist hunt - nikobellic

Hands down the best tactical shooter game on the market along with vegas 2. For the analytical standpoint, you have to actaully know what your doing. You don't just run around like a chicken with his head cut off shooting at whatever moves and enemys popping out from out of nowhere. If you have patience and make methodical moves this is by far the best game ever made in the first person shooter genre. 10 out of 10!

16 Halo Reach

This game has everything... Superb single player, interesting firefight, Forge bigger than ever, Theater, and of course the fantastic Multiplayer that you can't possibly stop playing it easily! Best FPS & best game for me.

This is rated as the best halo yet and halo3 is currently at the top meaning this is first

I've spent days on forge on this game. Ill never find a game that was good as this one. BRING BACK FORGE WORLD 343!

After years of playing this masterpiece I'm still not sick of this I recommend it

17 Crysis 2

An awesome shooter, which allows you to play with stealth or to go in guns blazing. Skirmishes that are memorable and satisfying to complete on your way to finishing the campaign. Strategy plays a huge role as to how you accomplish your goal. The cloaking ability is a stealthy player's dream.

This game is probably one of the best. It gives you a choice on how you want to play it!

18 Titanfall

This game is great! It gives you a lot of opportunities other games don't

It is just great no need to explain

This game is awesome

Not much to do but with a friend it is the best and a very good FPS

19 Unreal Tournament III

Best first person action shooter ever in terms of pure game play. Multiplayer is fantastic with a wide array of weapons and tweaks. Still pay this game to this date and still ranked in the top 10 on the leaderboards.#furyofman

20 Far Cry 2

This is possibly the worst FPS I have ever played. The structure is superb you think, if you enjoy repetition its brilliant. Utter rubbish. The only game I have thrown in the bin, not fit to wipe Call of Duty's boots.

How can this moron call this game repetitive, you make your own maps stupid..

Really good game everyone should be playing game so good - ballaboi17

Far cry 2 was made in 2010 that was ubisoft worst year by the way it looks guud

21 Call of Duty: Ghosts

I'm Glad Its On The Top 10 First person Shooters Because Its One Of The Best Call Of Duty Games Yet On The Xbox 360 & One Of My Favourites Besides Black Ops 2

I don't know what everyone else here is thinking (except the 1 that says trash) someone even said "it's the best Call of Duty ever! " WELL THIS GAME IS BULL CRAP!

This is an awesome game and it's a very good story line it's sad when the dad dies.

Best ever

22 Borderlands

Much better than the 20 games before it.

Borderlands should be at least number three
It's like one of the best games ever made

Best Co-op game I've ever played, and there's almost more guns to find than there are enemies to kill.

23 GoldenEye 007

This game made first person shooters popular!

This N64 game rivals anything on 360. A true classic.

This game made FPS games popular? So Wolfenstein 3D and Doom had nothing to do with it?

This is a N64 Game...

24 Call of Duty 3

I'm gonna get this game in the future. I've only played demo.

One of the best CODs ever!

This game was okay

25 Perfect Dark Zero

good game but really cheap - JOSHL12349

26 Battlefield: Bad Company 2

This item was not added in this list... I added it... Come on guys! This game is definitely among the top 5 if not top 3... Amazing graphics, smashing story, unbelievable gameplay... Please vote for this... One of the best games I have played...

Best multiplayer experience I've ever had.

I did not like this game whatsoever.

27 Crysis 3

Great game

28 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon
29 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

I've watched videos of the game but never played it but it looks amazing

30 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2

Split Screen and online co-op. Loads of weapons and gear to unlock great character customization. Amazing shooters elements. - Keeganno

31 Sniper Elite V2

One of the best games I have ever played.

As far as playing AI this my favorite. Current FPS games are simply too frantic with constant shooting. In this one you are ghosting. It is the nearest thing to Ghost Recon I for PC. Problem is, it got no online play. This would be great if they had teams as we used to on UBI Ghost recon and have intelligent missions, not this spray-and-pray online nowadays where everyone is running around like an individual Audie Murphy. No successful army fights like that.

32 Shadowrun
33 Battlefield 4

It's a super game with breathtaking graphics and a good story and multiplayer

Worst battlefield yet the graphics suck

Wide variety of maps, vehicles, and weapons. Perfect for the ultimate fps player.

The best FPS

34 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2
35 Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway

Very realistic shooter that uses squad play like Rainbow Six Vegas. This has great graphics amazing story if you've played the others. - Keeganno

36 Medal of Honor 2010

Holy cow! NEVER have I seen a story so gripping! Most realistic fps ever. Multiplayer bit of a drag. Story more then makes up for it! SO UNDERAPPRECIATED!


37 Metro: Last Light

The atmosphere alone is enough to draw you in wait till you start shooting!

38 Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Epic game with epic gameplay and graphics love it

This is such a good game it's underappreciated

Great experience on future war environment

Why the hell is this game so low!

39 Far Cry 4

Extremely fun game to play, lots of action and great weapons

Deserves a higher rating, try it and make your own mind up..!

40 Destiny: The Taken King

WHY IS THIS NOT UP THERE? Destiny finally has a story, rich, open world play, stunning graphics, and great gameplay... I'm shocked

Very nice game

Why the hell is this one so low too


41 Wolfenstein: The New Order

The story I a bit cheezy but the weapon upgrading is really enjoyable and I mean come on who doesn't love shooting Nazis levels are quite large n love the thriwback nightmare really fun overall game

42 Turok

Not fun can't beat 1ST misson

graet story line great and cheap - JOSHL12349

45 Gotham City Imposters
46 50 Cent Blood on The Sand

great game with bosses in helicopters - JOSHL12349

47 Halo 4

People say this game is better than it actually is it really sucked and multiplayer was worthless

The most overrated game of 2012 get over it. it sucks - htoutlaws2012

Play Destiny the taken King instead. Don't waste your money

It's ok

48 Singularity

This game brought me back to the shooters. Short but great story.

49 Bulletstorm

An amazing shooter with unique mechanics, flows nicely, nice graphics, different modes and good rumble support. Surprised that this wasn't on the list before. (Also I think this is better than Halo, just saying, my opinion! ).
