I voted for Revolt and the latest Gameloft shooters.

And, though it's not on the poll, Meteor Blitz is a relatively unhyped and wholly underrated arcade shooter with amazing action and perfect controls. As far as gameplay goes, it's probably better than anything on the poll. It's one of my all-time favorites on my iPod!

I thought the original NOVA was a bit more fun.

I voted for both MC:BP and NOVA 2, as well as BF:BC, however I really think you only need two of dem. (Either nova 2 or MC: BP and BF:BC2) I personally would go with MC:BP, but that is because I like my shooters a bit more tactical than run-n-gun (although MC:BP is somewhat as well). Pick either NOVA 2 or MC:BP as a result of your personal preference to HALO or COD, respectively. If you can afford it, though, get all three (which would be about $15). Nazi Zombies is great if you like co-op, and its only five bucks for four of the maps, but I don't like playing it alone. Splinter Cell is a decent TPS on sale for 99cents, and finally (for now I hope) NYZombies is an amazing Shooting gallery game.

Aww hell, heres a list of shooter categories with my favorites. I don't have every one up I've played, only the ones I feel worth mentioning)
1. MC:BP Campaign and Multi
2. NOVA 2 Campaign and Multi
3. Puppet War: FPS (its amazing BTW, no joke) 1 player only, survival

6. COD,- 1 player, better with 4 as co-op
