Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition Review
Recommend me a 360 Game

As the title states recommend me a game.

Must have:
Co-Op (the main reason so this must be good & have longevity)
Online play for Co-Op
Profanity would also be welcomed, but not essential.

Other suggestions?

Any 360 gurus give a brother some advice of what would fit the bill?

GoW2 or RE5.

I should clarify that blood and guts isn't really that high up the must have scale.

Good game play and longevity rate much higher.

gow was alright, once you've finished it (if you do, that last boss was a b****) you're unlikely to play it again;

sounds like L4D is the go

GoW2 was ok... GoW1 was solid first time through, same with halo3.

Yeah I'm also pretty keen for a sport game like soccer.

L4D is leading the race, any advances?

Much love for Ruddbux.

Crackdown - awesome sauce fun co-op. Best fun I've had playing co-op on the 360. Climb the outside of a skyscraper, get to the top and kick bad guys off the roof. Get a semi 'accidently' thrown at you by your partner and respond by hitting him with a rocket from halfway across town :)

Yeah I've got the first Rainbow six Vegas and it's not bad at all, bit over it though and looking for something else.

I'll look into the other titles in that series as I've never really checked them out.

Personally, I wouldn't buy Left 4 Dead on console though. I haven't played the 360 version, so I'm just extrapolating here, but its a PC FPS ported to console, I don't imagine it'll be at its best on a 360.

Something like Gears of War works, cos its built from the ground up to take into account the strengths and weaknesses of a console. But I've found more often than not, when an FPS is made for PC, and ported to console, it sucks pretty hard on console.

the major downside I see is the lack of AU servers for Xbox live.

I don't see how you could play L4D on a console, it's so jumpy and I dont think you can turn quickly enough with consoles and still retain control. And no no I'm not trying to start an arugment or debate.

I've not played it on PC, but it's doable, theres a nice 180 spin button though.

RE5 is very good, although I'm not sure about long term replay value as the co-op mode has you playing through the single player game again. To be honest, probably what you would want to do with a game like this is play it from the start as co-op.

The reason I think GOW2 as an example might be better long term is that you can play (as I understand it) co-op in Horde mode, where waves of enemies come at you and you have to battle your way through capture the flag/king of the hill type scenarios, rather than solve puzzles etc.

I guess any co-op game is going to be relatively linear and so is going to have some limitations on replay value, as opposed to games like COD series which are team based or your more standard deathmatch etc.

Ideally you want a game that you can play as co-op/team but also has open ended DM or CTF modes. If RE5 had a Capture the Flag or Horde type mode it would be the money.

It's not co-op, but if you've just recently acquired a 360 you should be able to pick up Dead Rising reasonably cheap these days. I had a blast playing through that game.

Its going to have some of those sorts of modes soon, being released as DLC. Though, not free DLC so it'll probably cost a few $$. I'm interested to see how the hell its going to work though, cos the Resident Evil formula doesn't really lend itself to fast-paced competitive gameplay.

Doesn't RE5 have Mercenary Mode or w/e? It's very similar to Horde mode from what i've heard.
