Out of purely console-only shooters...I think this may be mine as well, but I am having a hard time trying to think of many good FPS games that are only on consoles.

Either this or Halo 2.  Or we referring to last-gen only?  Whatever.  Yeah this game was great and I liked Future Perfect as well.

My favorite mode was that infection-esque type. With the green fire. Good shit.

I always liked the third one more. I thought the story levels were a little more fun, plus it had that map editor.

But this one was also pretty great. We always had some fun just playing co-op over and over.

For offline multiplayer i loved playing this with my friends but back when halo 2 was in its prime online i used to be on it 24/7.

This is my favourite FPS, console or PC, ever made. I just can't get enough of it, even the supposedly lacklustre campaign.

Try Assault mode on Frantic and the Fortress map, a friend and I did it in 34 seconds.

Also, should monkeys be a concept?

I've never been a fan of the Time Splitters series...

Either way, I still wouldn't choose Halo over Timesplitters 2 or other console FPS games either. Which makes me think...I may actually pick The Darkness over Timesplitters 2 for best console-only FPS game.

Can't really say atm what my 'favorite console shooter ever' would be ..but TS2 is definitely up there. Sigh@your comment crunch, made me think about that again....I liked bioshock, but it was very...not gonna get in to this, but I want system shock 3.

Yeah this game is great for offline multiplayer.

But I think my favourite FPS of all time is Half-Life 1 (I played it on PC, but it is on consoles too).

I have fond memories of playing flame tag in my created level as the monkey. Good times.

I really have an urge to go and play this game, I never made it all the way to the end of the Arcade challenges on the last difficulty, I would love to 100% this game!

Like exclusive? Halo CE

otherwise, it's a tie between BIA Road to Hill 30 and CoD 4 (singleplayer on both)

Oh man does anybody remember the the virus mode on the hangar level. You could just stand at the back of it and see hordes of infected charging towards you. Loved it!

My favourite console shooter is Rainbow Six 3, that was really great online.

I realise it's available as Raven Shield on PC but that version is a fair bit different.
