10. Medal of Honor: Airborne, Xbox 360, PC, PS3, PS2, Xbox.
If WW2 first-person-shooters are your thing, you could do a lot worse than MoH: Airborne. Will called it a "brilliant war game" when he reviewed it back in September, citing memorable missions, riveting gameplay and huge scale action. While it's not the highest placed WW2 shooter on our list, Airborne is still a solid effort from EA and should definitely be somewhere on Medal of Honor fans' Christmas lists.
9. Metroid Prime: Corruption, Wii.
The final game in the Metroid Prime series, Corruption is so much more than a simple first-person-shooter. It's a kind of platforming, puzzle, action, FPS hybrid, which, if you're a fan of the series, cannot possibly disappoint. When Greg reviewed it in October, he described it as "another fantastic effort by Retro Studios" with "streamlined, pin-point accurate controls" that "set a new precedent for first-person games on the Wii". Corruption is an essential purchase for all Wii owners.
