Top 5 Co-Op Games for the Rest of 2008 - Page 5

1. Left 4 Dead (360/PC, Valve/EA, November 20th)

Co-Op Experience: 4 Player Online Co-Op - 2 Player Split Screen on 360 Version as well as 4 Player Online.



This is the one game that was on everyone's list this year.    Sporting a 4 player co-op story mode in which players attempt to survive the zombie onlsaught, Left 4 Dead has an atmosphere that is like no other game to date.  The game was designed from the ground up for co-op play, and it's essential to use tactics and teamwork to survive.  Even the game's vs. mode which allows 8 players to play online together has strong ties to co-op.  After E3 and PAX this year, it's easy to see why this is our number one anticipate co-op game of the year. 



Notable Mentions:


Guitar Hero: World Tour (Multiple Platforms, Neversoft/Vicarious Visions/Activision Blizzard, October 25th)  - Guitar Hero's first foray into multiple instruments, can it survive the jump?


LittleBigPlanet (PS3, Media Molecue/Sony, October 21st) - It's yet to be seen just how much game is in LBP. 


Red Alert 3 (PC/360, EA October 27th, 360 Novemeber 11th) - An RTS where every mission is designed to be played co-op.  Risky.


Saint’s Row 2 (360/PS3/PC, Volition/THQ, October 14th) - Open world and goofy, drop in and drop out throughout the entire campaign.  You can also dress as a hotdog.
