Best Xbox 360 First-Person Shooters

The Top Ten
1 Halo 3 Halo 3 Product Image

It is hard to realise that although Halo has one of the most basic control's and looks simple to play, it is one of the hardest to truely master. Unlike most games Halo has few weapons but each is distinct and about half are weapons you will only find in Halo and that is what truely brings color to this game along with the amazing music and beautiful storyline.

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.

Its 2014 and still play this I think halo 4 is better because you can sprint and has a really intense campaign there's no swearing so I and other kids are able to enjoy it along with adults who don't like swearing and the vehicles maps and weapons make endlessly fun!

HALO 3 Pwns all Cod is fun 4 a long time, but if you think about, HALO takes skill 'cause you all use the same starting weapon, in Cod, just being a high level gives you a HUGE advantage against other people (what noobs)

2 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Product Image

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!

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

COD4 is the best fps ever. Everything just felt rite. The maps were grate and the guns were perfect.

MW2, BO & MW3 are all on next on the list.

Halo is good to, if you want something difarent from Call of Duty.

3 Fallout 3 Fallout 3 Product Image

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

In my opinion probably the best game ever... Well, along with Red Dead Redemption.

Absolutely loved it, have played over 300 hours on one campaign

4 BioShock BioShock Product Image

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 The Orange Box Product Image

Great game or I should say games. Half life 2 is easily one of my favorite games of all time and the episodes are great also. Portal is fantastic very fun but short but there are lots of fun Easter eggs to find and advanced chambers. Team fortress 2 is a fun addicting multiplayer although there are only 6 maps each only combatable with one gametype there's gonna be more soon in dlc. Overall I think the orange box is a 96 out of 100.

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.

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.

Should be at the top of the pile! Without doubt the best FPS ever made!

6 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Product Image

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.

MW2 was the peak of first person shooters. Sad that Call of Duty has fallen so far since then especially with Advanced Warfare

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

This made Call of Duty better and Activision's last game that was good.

7 Battlefield 3 Battlefield 3 Product Image

Does Call of Duty have tanks, jeeps, jets, helicopters, or ACTUAL MAPS? I've played a few Call of Duty games, then I found BF3. I basically forgot about Call of Duty. I've been playing it ever since. (I know Call of Duty 3 has vehicles but it also had bad graphics and didn't have nearly as many vehicles as in bf3). Also, I know the bf3 single player campaign isn't as good as the Call of Duty one, but the BF3 multiplayer is better than the Call of Duty single player AND multiplayer COMBINED. When you guys make another list on this topic, VOTE BF3 because of this comment.

It's 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 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

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.

8 Call of Duty: World at War Call of Duty: World at War Product Image

I followed the Call of Duty series faithfully but this is the worst one.
While I did like the visuals and story arc, there was too much wrong with the gameplay for me to not rage quit.

I hate the clunky motion,
I hate the "must follow this path" gameplay,
I hate the "trapped by a boulder or a piece of tree..can't jump over that small piece of foreground detail" moments,
I hate the " stupid NPC teammate has trapped me against the wall" mechanics,..."move you stoopid fxxking chump...get out of my way and shoot something! "
I hate the fact you cannot execute the NPC teammates for the above reason...seriously...why can't I shoot him?...I need his ammo and he got me killed...twice! "
I hate the lack of consistency in the 'rules for enemy NPC's' - "is it just a double tap or an entire magazine to kill these guys...? "

...all said and done, I didn't like it. I gave it away for free at a car boot sale after warning the young gamer about my ...more

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

WOULD BE #1 If there wasn't so many campers! But still a awesome game. Love the Stg-44

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

9 Battlefield: Bad Company Battlefield: Bad Company Product Image

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

Although not as good as the sequel it still is fun

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

10 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

Best halo game EVER! Great gameplay, check, good story, check, riveting multiplayer, check!

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

The Contenders
11 Left 4 Dead Left 4 Dead Product Image

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.

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

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

12 Borderlands 2 Borderlands 2 Product Image

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

13 Call of Duty: Black Ops Call of Duty: Black Ops Product Image

The Cold War along with the story mad it to be one of the best cods period

Pretty cool campaign and I love the shotgun the Dragon breath

Best campaign and zombies in the series. Multiplayer is great but not as good as MW2

Best storyline of any Call of Duty

14 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas Product Image

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!

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.

Yeah if you want to run around like a commando retard completly unrealistic Halo and COD4 is probably your bag. If you like tactically games than Vegas is where its at.

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

15 Unreal Tournament III Unreal Tournament III Product Image

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

16 Call of Duty: Black Ops II Call of Duty: Black Ops II Product Image

My #1 favorite game! This game is life, especially zombies. Also the guy that talked about David Mason dieing, I haven't finished the canpaign yet. Thanks

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

This game is fun and all but why do u kill your own guy, Mason?

Fun to play with replay abilities makes it one of the best.

17 Far Cry 2 Far Cry 2 Product Image

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.

Really good game everyone should be playing game so good

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

The fact you can make maps and create your own ideas and share it for online shooting is incredibly amazing

18 GoldenEye 007 GoldenEye 007 Product Image

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

This game made first person shooters popular!

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

I didn't excpect this to be on the list. In other words THIS GAME IS A BIG PIECE OF CRAP!

19 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Product Image
20 Perfect Dark Zero Perfect Dark Zero Product Image

good game but really cheap

21 Borderlands Borderlands Product Image

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.

Much better than the 20 games before it.

22 Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Product Image

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.

23 Crysis 3 Crysis 3 Product Image

Best game for xbox 360 hands down

Great game

24 Titanfall Titanfall Product Image

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

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

It is just great no need to explain

This game is awesome

25 Call of Duty 3 Call of Duty 3 Product Image

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

One of the best CODs ever!
