4-player 1-system coop games (360)

Does anyone know of any games for the 360 that support 4 players on one system (split screen) in coop mode? Looking for a couple titles to break up the death match monotony when I have friends over for gaming on the big screen (97", so split screen is not a big problem) night.

Nope, in co-op you're limited to 2 people per Xbox, but (I believe) it supports 4 players via lan and Live.

Co-op looks poo too, the screen ratio is really buggered up in 2 player splitscreen.

ultra late edit- in Halo 3 that is.

That's weird, I mean there's plenty of games that support 4 players on the sane system multiplayer matches, and there's games, like you said that support 4 players in coop on different machines, so it stands to reason that this would be possible.

Ah well.

fusion frenzy 2
viva pinata : party animals
scene it! : lights camera action

all support 4 players, but I'm guessing those aren't the type you want to play.

the story modes of games are more process intense, therefore it cant handle 4. btw, 97? sweet!

Yeah, I'm guessing it has to do with the system resources. I don't think they system can handle running 4 different views at once.

Ghost Recon: AW does have a multiplayer that is similar to a campaign style in that you have to work together to reach checkpoints and takeout targets, and I think you can do four people on one system.

Whilst on a similar note can anyone suggest a good 2 player co-op game for myself and the fiancee? WE've recently played through and enjoyed Halo 3 but open to ideas.

Lego Star Wars is a great co-op game, and both sexes like it. It's fun enough so that the experienced gamer will find secrets to satisfy them, but the controls are simple enough for a new person to pick up.
