Immercenary is a great fps, but the early difficulty may turn you off. It's also more of a thinking man's fps and much less linear than say a Wolfenstein.

The Iron Angel games are a bit slow & clunky, but they have great atmosphere. The 2nd one runs a bit better imo.

Poe'd was a very ambitious fps with a feel that reminds me a bit of Metroid Prime.

Cyberdillo is good for a laugh (although I do actually think it is a solid game for what it is)

Although not strictly a first person shooter as it does have a lot of strategy elements I'd have to say Space Hulk 8)

To go along with that last recommendation, Defcon 5 somewhat qualifies as well.

Iron Angel of the Apocalypse 2 is interesting.

Escape from Monster Manor?
Though personally I never really liked it - but as far
as I know, many people do.

Yeah Escape from Monster Manor is a favorite of mine. It's a very simple game but those spiders... graaahh. When you get to them the game goes from easy to hard.

Oh and here's a fast list of a bunch (probably not every) of FPS on the 3DO:
  • Deathkeep
    Defcon 5
    DOOM
    Escape from Monster Manor
    Immercenary
    Iron Angel
    Iron Angel 2
    Killing Time
    PO'ed
    Slayer
    Space Hulk
    Virtual Quest
This isn't a best of list! That should be obvious since DOOM is on it. :D

Virtual Quest may be better known as Seal of the Pharoh (unless you are in Japan) It really isn't a shooter and is more of a dungeon crawler like Slayer.

@3DOExp - I notice you left Cyberdillo of your list. :wink:

I just did a quick copy from 3DOKid's post "3DO First person shooters?". So you can pick on him. :wink:

[quote="3DO Experience"]I just did a quick copy from 3DOKid's post "3DO First person shooters?". So you can pick on him for that, but you can pick on me for not reading my own post under his... looks like I should have taken more time and read it all, or taken less time and just tossed up a link.

Insecter War and Rush 'n Fire Megadas both play from a first person perspective, and you shoot. Not traditional FPSes obviously, since they are 1 on 1 games (and neither is very good. :lol: ).

BattleSport is what Insecter War should've been.

Definitely both Tetsujin/Iron Angel of the Apocalypse games. They are slow (especially the first one) but have a great atmosphere.
