Valkyria Chronicles (srpg)
Resonance of Fate (rpg)
XCom - Enemy Unknown (srpg)
Good tactical shooters...PS3...oxymoron, sadly.
The only two games that even come close are the Operation Flashpoint games.
Below those, I'd say GRAW2, but only on the "Original" setting, in which you die from a single shot.
If you want a multiplayer game, I'd say Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is the only choice, since the only other true tactical shooter that I know of, SOCOM: Confrontation, is being shut down in the New Year.
Sniper Elite V2
This game is somewhat of a mix of sniping, 3rd-person shooter, and stealth.
You get more ammo for the sniper rifle, but you do get a pistol and machine gun as well, but there isn't much ammo for the pistol or machine gun, so you have to pick & choose when you use them carefully.
The game also gives you grenades, mines, and trip-wires...so you can stealth fully and tactically place them anywhere to give you an advantage.
The environments are also big enough that you can tackle them in a variety of ways.
Plus, the X-ray kill cam (when sniping) makes the game so much fun. Basically, when you are sniping, the game has a chance of triggering an X-ray cam that slows down time and lets you see as the bullet passes through bones and organs. It is extremely satisfying.
It does take place during WW II though.
Spec Ops: The Line
Another good one is Hitman: Absolution.
This game also allows you to tackle the game in a variety of ways, such as going in stealthy or just go in guns blazing.
There are also plenty of ways to kill using a variety of things in the environment, which makes the game have a higher level of replay.
And, you can also take another characters outfit to disguise yourself.
This is another one of my favorites.
It gets a lot of hate though, because it's a little different than previous Hitman games...But I personally disliked previous games in the series, but love this one.
Some of the environments are rather small in some levels, while some levels have bigger environments, which allows you to take a multitude of paths and perform a multitude of objectives.
Overall a very good and enjoying game.
I can't think of any real tactical shooters on the PS3. If anything you should check out the PC game SWAT 4, it's old enough to run any machine and it's really hardcore tactics. Every mission has random spawning NPCs, no healing items, no regeneration, you get wounded which affects your performance, no in mission saving, and thinking like the leader of a SWAT team is crucial. It's more about saving lives than killing people, if anything you'll get penalized if you shoot before a suspect does. It's a great game but being that complex and hardcore, it's not too surprising why they didn't make a sequel, there wasn't a big enough market for that kind of game.
Other good and honorable mentions are...
Spec Ops: The Line
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
Rainbow Six Vegas 2
Ghost Recon Advanced War Fighter
Playstation 2 Forever. <3
The Last of Us multiplayer is quite tactical.
^ Get hyped for THE RAID 2; sequel to one of the best action movies of the last decade!
