    I am looking for a Team-Based MultiPlayer FPS for 6-8 players to play over a LAN.

    We have played CounterStrike to death.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    ravenshield (rainbow six 3)is awesome. been playin it for months and still find it a great game. a mixture of tactical and all out battles but none of the rubbish quake style jumping around and rockets etc. loads of multi options too.

    There is the Battlefield series.

    I would also recommend the Tribes series, there is a demo of the newest release on Fileplanet.

    Do you play on the internet as well, or 6-8 players in total?

    UT2004 assault modes are usually good fun with smaller numbers of players.

    If you mean Flashpoint 2,yes its probably gonna be very decent but you have a looooong wait,cos its been delayed till spring 2006 :eek:

    Always concerns me when a game gets delayed so long,surely the technology they were using when they begun developing will be out of date by the games release.

    edit:eek:h,and theres a new Hidden and Dangerou2 expansion been released which includes co-op,ideal for a LAN :smoke:

    enemy territory is a superb game for lan/internet fun.
    also try the old gem medal of honour AA.

    Call of Duty is a decent WW2 FPS - great 1 player game & great Multiplayer as well.

    np dangermouse I recommend it to everyone and anyone(it's the only game I've been playing for the past year and a half or so). You may see me online as Bondyboy

    I was unfortunate enough to buy Call of Duty, single player is good but the multiplayer is very poor imo (just glorified DM) and it was uninstalled after only a month or so

    Counter Strike source is meant to be a vast improvement over the original. I've never played the original but my initial findings of source are that it's fantastic fun and I thoroughly recomend that:clap:

    I like Far Cry : team assault games are especially good fun. Only downside is newbies with rocket launchers.

    i think COD is fantastic - its the only fps I've ever liked (I'm a c&c, warhammer 40k fan). The add on for COD is even better and imho is a great team game...smoke grenades out!

    Yep COD has been my fave multiplayer FPS for a while, on the PC. Great Graphics, interesting maps and a good feel to the game made it the natural successor to MOHAA IMO. :thumbsup:

    can you recomend any friendly COD servers where the same people frequent them. I like Search & Destroy / Headquarter modes the best.

    How do the other games mentioned here compare to COD??

    thanks

    Not played it for a while tbh - there was a decent clan server that I used to play on for about a month but I can't remember what it was called now. I always found the Jolt servers to be pretty decent as well.

    Enemy territory without doubt the greatest multiplayer out there. Bondyboy sounds familiar, I may have run into him and I'm thinking he sucked :)
    I too have been playing it for about a year or so and go by the name of BlondeOnBlonde, the server I play on is a 24 slot and the ip is 213.230.203.230:27961 The server use to always be busy when there were 1 standard campaign and 1 added custom maps but now they have added a another custom campaign and it seems to slowed it down a little, but a good server all the same

    I have not played the new CS< but it was plagued with cheats in it's earlier days. I prefer something like COD or United Offensive with Punkbuster installed or even better cheat police and the server live streaming to the MBL and punksbusted.com

    If it ain't watertight I don't play.

    Although PA may give COD a run for it's money I think right now COD is still the best military realistic FPS in existance.

    Day of Defeat. Loads and loads of custom maps and more atmosphere that COD IMHO.
    Also when released on Source should be awesome!! (forgive my Americanism)

    For COD in S&D, you can try blackwatch server or VSUK or Divas

    All good clans servers, download all seeing eye, put a tick in the total war mod option and you will see a load of good clan COD boxes.

    I play unreal tournament 2004, Call Of Duty and Counter-strike quite a bit.

    I tried Enemy Terrortory yesterday but i was confused as to what i was doing.

    It wasn't straight forward capture the flag etc, tbh i really didn't have a clue what i was doing!
