Top 10 Best Co-op Games for Xbox 360

The Xbox 360 has arguably revolutionized online gaming--at least on the console--through Xbox Live. Ever since then, almost every game on the platform has been blessed with both excellent single player and multiplayer modes. While it’s very easy to get up and go, no experience is more enriching than playing a game in co-op with a buddy or two. Here are the ten best co-op games for the Xbox 360.

The Xbox 360 has plenty to offer in the way of both single player and multiplayer games. With RPGs like “Tales of Vesperia” and shooters like the “Halo” and “Gears” series, theres little the system doesn’t offer. With that in mind, we take a look at what the console has to offer in terms of co-op and team-based games.  


#10 Worms 2: Armageddon

“Worms 2: Armageddon” is a faithful remake of the classic PC game. The premise is simple: you select a group of militarized worms to do war across a 2D stage with other groups of worms, who are under the control of other players, or if you prefer, the AI. Your worms are armed with a wide array of weapons, ranging from bazookas and grenades to the Holy Hand Grenade of Monty Python fame and exploding sheep. It’s like Gunbound, only a lot more polished.   


#9 Dead Space 3

Dead Space 3 is the first game in the haunted sci-fi survival horror series to offer a cooperative campaign. Players will be able to venture into the depths of Tau Volantis alone as Isaac Clarke, or with a friend who takes on the role of his partner, John Carver, to take on the necromorphs together.

The game doesn't cut down on its scare factor just because there's two of you instead of one. You'll have someone to watch your back this time around, but you'll both have to conserve ammunition if you hope to survive the horrors ahead.

Dead Space 3 is a worthy sequel to the franchise, and future entries may yet feature co-op mode given how well done it is in its current iteration.


#8 Castle Crashers

Castle Crashers is a modern take on the old beat-em-up genre. Instead of a couple of burly dudes named Billy and Jimmy, Castle Crashers features a set of four super deformed knights against an army of super deformed orcs, ogres and other bad guys. It’s designed to be played cooperatively in multiplayer, either with friends at the hotseat or over the internet. The graphics are cute, but not in a My Little Pony kind of way. Hell no. Castle Crashers is genuinely badass.
