10. Aliens: Colonial Marines (Gearbox/TimeGate)
|Title is rated as Mature by ESRB|
9. Castle Crashers (The Behemoth)
In Castle Crashers players will find themselves laughing at the horrendously childish influences this game finds itself having. From a bear crapping itself to poop propelled dear only to find the underlying story a laugh of fighting over the kings daughters. Castle Crashers much like Alien Hominid HD and Classic, leaves players with a true feeling of no remorse at the end of the stage as they are beating up one another after each boss to claim a princess for themselves. Each player is identified as a different knight and will be granted different abilities as they level up their characters from beating people up in this RPG like brawling side-scrolling title. (Review coming soon)
8. Defiance (Trion Worlds, Inc)
Even though at its heart Defiance is a MMOTPS title, it is what could be considered one of the largest scale co-op titles created. While allowing for groups up to four people to take on a vast array of missions from co-op, to challenges, and finally world raids, players will find themselves creating, editing, and at times having to trade or swap weapons to get where needed.
7. Dead Rising 2 - Including DLC (Blue Castle Games)
Dead Rising 2, DR2 Off The Record, and Case West are probably some of the funniest, serious, and large scale zombie titles I've ever played. Dead Rising 2 and it's two DLC packs that allow co-op are actually quite fun putting players in the role as Frank West and Chuck Greene. In this players can dress up their characters, create unimaginable weapons, as well as carry off some of the wackiest, goofiest and even hilarious moments in gaming as they rush through horde after horde of zombies only to run for a safe room once their supply of goofy weapons has come to pass.
6. Left 4 Dead - DLC Available (PC/XBox 360 Only)
5. Left 4 Dead 2 - DLC Available (PC/XBox 360 Only)
Much like it's former title, Left 4 Dead does the same as before. Pitting up to four players against countless waves of zombies that they can either sneak past, hunt down, or even all in all ignore if they choose to find the safest path possible. However Left 4 Dead 2 will also take players into new community challenges by taking on special challenges caused by Mutations causing things to go either easy or beyond hard giving them a true challenge and bragging rights.
4. Dead Island Game of the Year Edition (Techland)
3. Dead Island Riptide (Techland)
Much like the former title, Dead Island Riptide puts on vast improvements allowing four players to once more fight through another zombie outbreak they once thought they escaped. In this title players will see enhanced co-op capabilities through new talents, weapon patterns, and even weapons. Players will take on multiple types of mutations and bosses a like giving the game a bit harder stand point than the former.
2. Borderlands Game of the Year Edition (Gearbox)
Known for its welcomed change to the First Person Shooter genre, Borderlands two is perfect for up to four players in this RPG like element. Players can edit, choose their classes, and even take on missions that at times seem too hysterical or odd to really comprehend. Featuring a new game+ mode, players will be able to spend hours upon hours in co-op hunting down unique weapons, shields, grenades and the likes.
1. Borderlands 2 (Gearbox)
Just like it's predecessor Borderlands 2 is the perfect title for Co-Op fanatics who want a good four person wasteland crawling experience. With it players will be able to edit clothing, take on missions like before, and ultimately go on a true Vault Hunters experience.
