25 Best Xbox 360 Co Op Games of All Time

Borderlands

The original Borderlands was a surprise hit that is best experienced as a co-op game to help get through what is a pretty bland story. Although the sequel improved just about everything from the first game, the classes are different between the two games and offer very varied experiences.

Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 was an excellent sequel to a game that already got a lot right. It featured better DLC support, new classes and guns, and a much more interesting story with one of last gen’s best villains.

Call of Duty: World at War

Call of Duty: World at War, while dated compared to the new CODs is still worth remembering as one of the best co-op games in the series. It featured a full co-op campaign with four-player competitive features, allowing you to see who is pulling the most weight while you play through the story. And, of course, introduced the incredibly popular Zombies mode.

Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops, developed by Treyarch just like World of War, once again was a one of the better co-op experiences in the series. Although it dropped the competitive co-op feature from World at War, it had a highly developed Zombies mode that took the spin-off mode to the next level.

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is one of those games that fully embraces “b-” game status. It doesn’t try to be polished or great, but if you just want a totally insane co-op experience to just screw around with a friend, EDF: Insect Armageddon is a memorable experience for the silliest reasons.

Gears of War

The original Gears of War blew away everyone when it released toward the beginning of last-generation. It was a killer-app that helped set the Xbox 360 up for a successful generation. Playing through the campaign now is just as fun as it was then.

Gears of War 2

Gears of War 2 kept the original’s excellent co-op campaign, and threw in the then innovative, and now industry standard, horde mode. Pick up where you left off from the original, and if you have a full crew, take a trip down memory lane with one of the OG horde modes.

Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3 caps off what was one of the best franchises on the Xbox 360. Gears of War 3 upped the ante with a four player co-op campaign, as well another iteration of horde mode.

Castle Crashers

Castle Crashers is a game that desperately needs a sequel. It’s a simple to learn but still challenging side-scrolling beat-’em-up with a striking art style and a great sense of humor. Whether you go for the original 360 version, or the remastered edition on Xbox One, you’re in for a good time if you have a few buddies to play with.

Halo 3

Halo 3 sent off Master Chief (at least for a few games anyway) in a memorable way. Bungie’s last numbered Halo game, the series classic co-op campaign is there and just as good as you remember.

Halo 3: ODST

Halo 3: ODST not only added a co-op campaign that was the first to not include Master Chief, but also, introduced Firefight, a beloved co-op horde mode that was arguably more popular than the rest of the game.

Halo 4

Halo Reach

Halo: Reach is the final Halo game to be developed by Bungie and it retains all the polish and fun gameplay from their previous efforts. The co-op campaign follows Noble Six as they face off against the Covenant before the events of Halo: Combat Evolved.

Portal 2

Grand Theft Auto V

Minecraft

Rayman Legends

Dark Souls

Dark Souls, which is getting remastered soon by the way, built on the very light co-op features seen in Demon’s Souls. It offered up a more thorough and easy to use co-op features, that let you invite others to their doom.

Left 4 Dead

Left 4 Dead 2 remains as one of the classic co-op games of last generation. While fans are still waiting for Valve to count to three, there’s nothing stopping you from continuing to enjoy the most recent iteration featuring co-op campaign and versus competitive modes.

Diablo 3

Diablo 3 feels like it has been around forever, and while it has moved on to current-gen hardware, the original 360 version of the game still holds up as one of the best co-op experiences you’ll find on the console.
