Might also be a plus but the deathmatch abilities of Halo are PC standard (big outdoor levels, usable vehicles etc) but which are let down by no integrated bot system.
If you liked the N64 bond titles try TimeSplitters2, it is by the same development team, has a similar play style (creep in, avoid setting off alarms, terminate defenders, complete missions(s), escape), nice visuals plus a much improved story mode over the original timesplitters game (mostly because they at least attempted to link the levels to suggest what was going on rather than just leave it as a collection of unlinked stages).
The real meat of timesplitters 2 lays in the challenge and tournament modes which take the form of either sub-games (the ever classic behead-the-undead or shooting melons from the hands of running monkeys with a sniper rifle) or traditional modes such as death match or assault (drool!) - you play to unlock extra levels, weird weapons (ie bricks and fire extinguishers), gameplay modes and characters for use in custom games.
MechAssult was decent; I felt that it didn't live up to the hype (well...whatever the hype it got before the release)...Unreal is pretty tight and all, but it won't live up to Halo
House of the Dead III will keep you entertained for good two weeks as you can unlock the House of the Dead II...but don't expect this game to have a great replay value as you will most likely come to a point where you have memorized where the zombies are...etc.
Just start out with Halo...that game will keep you busy for a while...especially on Legendary mode:)
