In this post about the top 10 best shooters for weak PC, I present to your attention a selection of worthy shooters of past years that will run without problems even on computers of weak configuration.
Modern first-person shooters allow you to spend evenings in unforgettable adventures while being in very comfortable conditions and complete safety. But there is one serious obstacle that prevents many gamers from touching this dream: the fact is that FPS, being the top genre of computer games, often makes high demands on hardware.
But do not despair, because there are more than a lot of games that feel great on a PC of average and even frankly weak configuration. So, here is the top 10 best shooters for weak PC.
The representative of the cult line of shooters, that will offer you to fight the hellish demons – first on Mars, and then directly in Hell. In Doom 3, the developers decided to make the gameplay more measured in comparison with the previous parts of the series, but the atmosphere and plot are made at the highest level.
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger
An exciting story in the setting of the Wild West with the appropriate locations, arsenal and gameplay moments like duels with the most notorious criminals. In Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, two things are interesting: a continuous action that fills your blood with adrenaline and a captivating storyline.
Star Wars: Republic Commando
A fantastic shooter in the Star Wars universe – without the Jedi, but with a detachment of clones under your command, at the head of which you will perform various tasks in a galaxy far, far away. Republic Commando features tactical gameplay, intense shootouts, and good AI opponents.
A game from Crytek that launched the Far Cry series. In this shooter, you will go to a tropical island, where you fight with dangerous mercenaries and even more dangerous mutants. At one time, the project struck the players with an open world and freedom of action, and it is worth noting that even now it looks quite worthy, only slightly losing to modern shooters.
The debut game from the modern gaming industry giant Valve, which is rightly considered one of the best among all the fantastic PC shooters. Released in 1998, Half-Life is still fun to play and ideal for low-end PCs. In addition to this, it has an excellent multiplayer that will help extend the pleasure of the game to those who have passed it many times.
It is difficult to imagine a gamer who is not familiar with this project. And yet, talking about games for weak PCs, one cannot help but mention the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, because it would be a criminal injustice. Since all the games in the series were released quite a long time ago (the last part, “Call of Pripyat”, was released in October 2009), today they can easily be run on low-end computers.
An undeservedly forgotten sci-fi action game with a first-person view for weak computers (released in 2007), which famously twisted plot can compare in its grandeur even with the unforgettable Half-Life 2. The developers from Saber Interactive managed to create a holistic, surprisingly believable world of the near future.
An excellent video game from Polish developers from People Can Fly, filled with black humor and unexpected plot twists. It is easily launched not only on gaming PCs but even on computers of the most budget configuration. In spite of this, the game shows cool visual effects and the breathtaking design of locations.
Medal of Honor
Medal of Honor series of games has become a trendsetter for all subsequent shooter games. We play as a brave American soldier and go through various locations of the Second World War, fighting with hordes of enemy soldiers. At your disposal the most classic set of weapons, missions with tanks and the traditional operation in Normandy.
Max Payne 1-2
Max Payne is an utterly gloomy and tragic story about a policeman who suddenly lost his family, and since that moment has been living only for revenge. Stylish skirmishes with the famous slow-mo are successfully combined with an interesting, unpredictably evolving storyline, stuffed with noir. At the same time, in the games of the Max Payne series, there are elements traditional for Hong Kong fighters, such as two-handed shooting, a variety of acrobatic stunts, locations with a large number of destructible objects and much more.
