Best online multiplayer action games on App Store?

Yes, I did see the other thread about best strategy games, but I like action ones so much more.
Are there any really good ones worth picking up? I have (and love) Lightbikes, any games like that?

Eh, I don't really like FPS's that much on the iPod because you can't move, aim, and shoot at the same time, meaning that you're either a sitting duck or will miss most of your shots. I have Nova and don't really like online mode there for above-mentioned reason.

Modern combat sandstorm has a huge online following. And you can move and shoot at the same time.

I dont know what kind of shooting games youve been playing if you're not allowed to do this. If you're talking about zombie infection or resident evil, horror games were designed like that for both effects and the precision shooting that is required.

It's like you push the fire button then drag your finger around. It's pretty useless and a huge waste of ammo. But all the NOVA-control style junkies love talking about it like it's some unique thing that they invented since they're pro at FPSs.
