Xbox 360 Co-op

I'm looking for a comprehensive list of 360 Coop games that can be played local network. I was in Best Buy the other day and there were only a couple of games that listed red coop (back of package), my understanding is that means via Xbox live only and no games that listed green coop (local network).

I've heard of this new coop game in development that involves zombies and will rely on heavy duty coop play. Can anyone refresh my memory for me as to its name and when it's do out?
Thanks.

edit: I did find these links:
1. About.com Top 10 Xbox Coop Games.
2. List of xbox360 compatible original xbox games.
3. Xbox 360 Coop games.

Time Splitters is not on the 360 compatible list. Anyone know if it will play on the 360 or would you say if it's not on the list, it won't play?
Thanks again!

I think I found it: Left For Dead. Release date Nov 2008.

Any other suggestions?
Thanks.

Left4Deads coming to consoles? I thought it was a PC only title learn something new every day.

I've played Gears of War and Halo 3 (even the odd game of Halo 1) in co-op, much better than playing on your own I find.

1. Halo Series
2. Gears of War 1/2
3. Left 4 Dead

Any others?

Any word on Dead Island coop? I'm searching online as I type. Initial indications are no.

It's an o.k. game but nothing to write home about imo. (Not said to piss you off.)

I just discovered Resident Evil 5 has coop!! Now I need to review that thread complaining about it.

How about any sports/racing/1v1 fighting game?

But IDK if you'd consider it "co-op" if you are on opposing teams.

Also, Dynasty Warriors, if you like that sort of thing. (I do).

Thanks for the suggestion. I consider opposing teams as 1v1 multiplayer. Mostly I'm into shooters and RPGs for cooping fun. I've played a little Soul Calibur on PS2 and it got old pretty fast although I enjoyed Oni despite its horrid levels (and it had no coop).

I've been on the same boat, wanting to play more coop games with my buddy.

- Gears of War 1/2 campaign is AWESOME. After that, you can still log in endless playtime in GOW2's Horde mode.

- We played Left 4 Dead. It was an OK game but it was more of a rental for us (which we did rent, glad I didn't buy it). Yes it's supposed to be different every time but even then, it's pretty much the same all over.

- How about COD 4 & 5? I played COD4's campaign myself and working on COD 5, and they're both excellent games.

- Halo 3 is probably good. I haven't played through it myself, but after played GOW and COD campaigns, I don't like Halo as much anymore.

- We tried to play Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 and then Perfect Dark Zero coop. We tried one level each to see what we should play next. Not bad for both, but we picked neither and played more GOW2 instead!

If you guys just want to work together (and not necessarily play for a story), try playing online and being on the same team. That should be unlimited fun too.

Call of Duty 4 and 5 has offline coop? (We just have one xbox). I'll check it out. Thanks!

edit: Does not appear they do...

BTW, regarding L4D, rushes and specialized zombies come at different times each time you play. Unless there is an event built into the game, like calling for the elevator (and you get a warning before hand), events are randomized. I guess it boils down to personal taste whether or not you like it. I gave it a big thumbs up.

Oops, COD4 doesn't have split screen coop, but I think COD5 does. From some sites I'm reading, COD5's offline coop is a bit different from its single player, with not as many missions to select and being unable to save your progress (unless you beat that mission in single player). So yeah, it's a dumbed down version it looks like.

Regarding L4D again, I'm sure you'll like the game. I think I would have liked the game more if I had a full 4 player coop game going, but I only had 2.

I've seen this in one other game, Kameo Elements of Power (360) required you to complete a level solo before it would allow you to coop it. Utterly stupid! Thanks for the COD5 info. I'll check it out.

I found an excellent resource for Xbox coop games, XBoxMP.com. Check the right side for predefined offline coop search and others.

Ikaruga is a great shump that can be played co-op.

Also, N+ is just about the best party game there is for the 360. Simple platform fun for everyone.

Both are available on XBLA.

I'll check it out. Thanks!

Just got done playing (this weekend) Call of Duty: World at War in split screen coop mode. I don't know, it just did not click like fighting zombies and aliens does. I have enjoyed military shooters in the past but this one, I don't know.

Lord of the Rings Conquest- I'm getting mixed signals. This Team Xbox page does not indicate offline splitscreen coop. But other sources like Co-Optimus says it does.

Comments based on coop xp appreciated. How is it?
Thanks!

The Latest PCGamer has Left For Dead 2 splashed all over the cover and it looks like it's due out at Christmas. The first version is outstanding so I have high hopes for the next.

Just played through Gears of War 2 split screen offline coop on the 360. If you've not played GOW2, and you liked the first one, this game has more options, amazing visuals/cinematics, besides the fighting, an interesting story line, including an emotional and possibly controversial twist as Dom searches for his missing wife. All my favorites came back including the Cole Train, Baird, Anya, and Hoffman. It's a worthy successor of to the original.

Although rated M for mature, it has options to turn off gore and the f'n language. It's well worth playing and now you can get it for around $25 used, either at ebay or Amazon. Go play!

The games cinematic are so good, you could be watching a movie. I wonder when the GOW movie is gonna come out and... the real question, who could possibly play Marcus Fenix? His character's voice has imprinted on me. I'm thinking maybe Jim Carrey or Steve Carrel.

I'm playing through GoW2 with the girlfriend, she had to persuade me to play it . But yea it's okay. I don't find the story or characters that engrossing and I don't like the controlls... But what the hell it's a splitscreen co-op and that keeps me playing.

And yes the cinematics are good, it is like watching a movie... a B-movie!
But I jest. Partially.

Well, framed on the type of game, it's as engrossing as it can be for a shooter? Can't let story or anything else get in the way of the action. As far as cinematics, compare it to something like Final Fantasy, The Spirits Within and it's surprisingly good IMO. The virtual camera work and focus is very good.

Ah I guess I can give it that. They are pretty well presented. And I did a "holy *****" when that big worm monster gobbled up the helicopter! It's enjoyable and I'd play through a GoW3 if they make one. Hell I'd have started on GoW1 but all 3 (yes, 3!) of our GoW1's are scratched to high heaven. Just up to the area with the falling ice shard things.

It's a shame that more games aren't splitscreen. They always make for the best multiplayer games I find (and games that share 1 screen like Smash Bros).
