My Top Ten Co-Op's
228 8 01. Borderlands - Xbox 360
222 8.2 02. Left 4 Dead 2 - Xbox 360
This game stresses co-operative play, and it shows. The enemy A.I. will destroy anyone trying to venture off on their own. But it's because this game is essentially a fun "Zombie Apocalypse Sim", it can be very addicting to go through a campaign with some friends and mowing down hundreds upon hundreds of zombies trying to survive.
The game sports up to 4 player co-op, with at least 2 player splitscreen, both offline and online. Besides a standard campaign, there are other modes that stress co-operative play, such as Versus and Scavange, as well as the now standard Horde-type mode, Survival.
Both the first Left 4 Dead and this sequel deserve to be owned by any co-op enthusiast, but be warned, this is the better game, with more modes, weapons, and diverse campaigns.
387 7.8 03. Resident Evil 5 - Xbox 360
This game brings together everything you would want in a co-op title, not to mention sporting some of the most detailed graphics I have seen to date on a console.
This game boasts a surprisingly addictive campaign that begs to be replayed if not to upgrade all the weapons, collect all the hidden items and jewels, as well as the higher difficulties that just cannot be fully appreciated unless done with a bud. The unlocked Mercenaries mode (and the subsequent Vs. Mode that can be bought) is also a blast if not to coordinate with a friend to achieve the highest score for personal best or for the online leaderboards. The options for playing with someone else is what should be required for 2-player support; split-screen, system link, and online is the trifecta that all developers should take note on.
I highly recommend the game to anyone that wants a full campaign that is playable in co-op as well as other bells and whistles. Being a Resi-Evil and zombie fan doesn't hurt either, though purists be warned, this game is more action than scares.
243 8.1 04. LittleBigPlanet - PlayStation 3
This is another shining example of co-op done right. The classic platforming feel with an added co-operative competitive charm will not dissapoint. The game has a lot of depth and replayability to it that should be experienced first hand, exploring every single player level for those elusive prize bubbles in co-op or just exploring shared levels online is a blast. The ability to play with 4-people either on the same box or a combination of people online and off is also key.
The game sports a sublime physics engine that is always amusing to witness when things happen in Rube Goldberg style, though it can detract a little enjoyment where platforming is concerned, since more is being considered while jumping than just timing.
I personally chose to get a PS3 if not for just the Blu-ray player but to play LittleBigPlanet, it is well it and I would highly recommand trying the game with a friend to see the appeal.
75 8.6 05. Castle Crashers - Xbox 360 Live Arcade
This game is pure fun and brings the scrolling beat-em ups back into great form with tons of replayability. With a substantial campaign for a downloadable title, and tons of weapons, animal orbs and characters to unlock and level up, the game has tons of reasons to come back to play again.
The game has While giving nods to classic games before it, Castle Crashers goes beyond the classics and actually movies the genre forward while still retaining a classic, while very unique and actually beautiful, look.
The game supports up to 4 people, with a mixture of offline and online, this is where the game really shines. Having friends playing with you at once is where you can have a really great time and it can always be quite hilarious. This game comes highly recommended and is quite possibly the best bang for the buck you can get for a game and can easily pass as a full retail release.
