    My husband is looking for a first person shooter that is similar to Time Splitters and Perfect Dark. Is there anything out yet?

    Thanks!

    None that are really good so far.

    In terms of what's available, if he doesn't mind single player shooters, there's Metroid (not specifically a shooter, although is often confused for one). Or there is Medal of Honor Heroes 2 coming out. That's set to be the best so far. Timesplitters 4 is on the cards, but nowhere near a release.

    theres no confusion about it, metroid is a shooter, you do a LOT of shooting in it so it must be a shooter, nintendo probably just wants to keep a "kid-friendly" tag on it.

    Medal Of Honor 2 sounds like the perfect game for him, when it comes out!

    ...It's true that stylistically it's a shooter, but the fact that it's more of an "adventure game" (what with it also having morph-ball mode, and more importantly, lots and lots of stuff to explore, more than just level design).

    Oh, and Metroid is a "Teen" game, and therefore not designed for "kiddies" in the first place (unless you count Teens as Kiddies, in which case, I'm pretty sure you're labelling yourself as a kid).

    I wouldn't label it as a teen game, the advert certainly doesn't advertise it as such.

    Time Splitters 4 is coming out for the Wii at some time.

    Medal Of Honor may be up his alley though.

    Well, in the UK, it's technically illegal to sell a game below it's certification, so it will stop kids in the UK.
    Regardless, it's beside the point. Nintendo aren't targetting this at below a "teen" level. It's like saying that Manhunt 2 and Resident Evil 5 is targetted at kids.

    http://www.esrb.org/ratings/search.jsp.
    It's rated for a teen in the US.
    http://www.pegi.info/en/index/global_id/23/?searchString=Metroid+Prime+3
    It's rated 12+ in the UK (pretty much a teen).

    yea wait for timesplitters 4 while playing medal of honor: heroes 2

    from what ive seen the online mode is as hectic as the timesplitters multi-player mode with a lot of bots. Just not as funny ( No monkey's or R-One-Oh-seven's )

    They are suitability ratings, not necessarily saying its for kids/teens.

    The UK one is. And the ESRB is a guidance one, but in the end, it's the only form of certification they have. Besides, it's up to parents (despite claims to the contrary) to decide what's best for their "child" (minor).

    Or are you getting at the fact that older people could play it, because I was just going for the lowest common denominator. Technically, an adult could play Dora the Explorer if they wished, they just might not get all that much out of it...

    That's because they're mommies are "dumbasses". And the point I was getting at, is nothing is "targetted" below it's certified age restriction (or equivolent).
