LimblessQuasar's Recommended 4-player Games Edit

Tales of the Abyss.

  • It's a decent JRPG with a lot behind the real-time battle system. \
  • Harder difficulties are a lot of fun in the Tales games.

Keep in mind, though, it's pretty standard (like Final Fantasy IX) in the sense that only one person is controlling the party, and everyone else only joins in during battles. I've always had a great time playing with my brother and one friend, but that's because we get along really well, keep ourselves entertained out of battles and help point out secrets, etc.

You also have to wait some amount of time before you'll all able to play. I haven't played this particular one enough to tell you when full 4-player co-op opens though, sorry. Anyway, something to look into, it's one of the few JRPG games I've encountered that has a solid co-op system.

My friends and I have had a lot of fun with Hunter The Reckoning Redeemer and Timesplitters: Future Perfect (for GC) but I'm not sure if they'd fit.

Posted 10/1/2011 1:33:58 AM For FPS`s look into Time Splitters, XIII, or James Bond Night Fire. I know XIII and James Bond both have bots. Haven't played Time Splitters so cant say much for that.

Co-op I think StarWars Clone Wars had a horde mode that was actually really fun. I spent a ton of time playing that.

Also StarWars Battlefront is amazing splitscreen. (both 1 and 2).

Gauntlet Dark Legacy is an awesome co op game.

Tales of the Abyss is a RPG where the battles are real time. The battles are 4 player co op and really really fun on higher difficulties with friends.

Just a random time killer but in the megaman aniverary collection Power Fighters is short but has co op.

there is also that contra shatter something rather game, Twisted Metal Black, Time Crisis 2, I think Champions of Norath and that Balders Gate game both had co op. The original Half Life port as well.
