nova 2 will be a rude awakening of what you've been missing then!

RAGE HD is not bad, and it's easy

I'd strongly recommend getting the official doom game by ID. The controls are very tight and responsive and it's a game suited to the iPhones size.

If you needed something more current, NOVA 2 has the edge in terms of single player, and MC2 has a cracking online multiplayer.

Rage is a fair suggestion, but some people aren't too keen on the on-rails game mechanic, if you can live without controlling your movement then you may well like it. Incidentally made by the company behind doom.

Either Modern Combat 2 or NOVA 2. It depends if you prefer modern war or futuristic FPS games.

BFBC2 is choppy. I don't have NOVA2 but it looks damn good. I do have MC2 though, and it's awesome.

BFBC2 lags quite a bit and is limited to 4 players in multiplayer, while both MC2 and NOVA2 have a limit of 10.

The only other iPhone multiplayer FPS I've played before these came out was Eliminate Pro, and compared to that MC2 is much smoother (much less lag).
