Co-op FPS games?

Archived from groups: comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.action (More info?)

I'm looking for some good co-op FPS, either already out or
coming out soon. Anyone have some in mind? There seems to
be a lack of these in the market - I love working towards
a common goal in a FPS, but it's getting to the point where
I can't even recall the last co-op FPS I played.

Thanks,

    There have been a couple of threads in recent months that covers what
    you are after.

    I currently like to play Joint Operations : Escalation expansion pack in
    Co-op mode.
    http://www.novalogic.com/games.asp?GameKey=JOE
    The maps have a mission or goal to complete and you fight against the
    "rebels" AI. The AI is fairly dumb but with some of the third party maps
    they increased the AI's accuracy so they can be a challenge.

    This topic has been asked before, and several people provided some good Coop
    games. You can do a Google search on Groups;
    http://groups-beta.google.com/grphp?hl=en&tab=wg&q=

    Enter something like: Coop FPS games.


    Here's two hits that might help:

    Swat3 currently out. Swat4 coming out soon. Splinter Cell:chaos theory
    coming out soon. All have multiplayer co-op. There are demos out for
    Swat4 and SC:ct

    For older stuff there's quake2 or System Shock 2

    It hasn't been updated in months. There are multiple Doom3 coop mods in
    development (current ones are Opencoop and Last Man Standing). Hopefully
    they will also support the expansion.

    I believe System Shock 2 had a patch that would allow you to play
    co-op multiplayer.

    That patch would be an "official" patch which you need to download anyway.
    Also, SS2 isn't really available in the marketplace (excluding online
    stores). You have to either to some serious hunting, or download it from a
    Warez site.

    For the OP, I'm not sure which games to recommend for Co-op. While there
    are some available (e.g. Sven-Coop for Half-Life), I've found that most
    games are simply rehashes of the original campaign with no design for
    multiple players, or fall into the "rush-die-respawn-rush" cycle. You
    might have some fun with Serious Sam, especially when you don't know
    whether or not some other players will set off secret traps.

    Descent1 & 2 were a blast in co-op mode, including the demo versions.
    You'll need to download the recompiled D1X & D2X binaries to make them run
    properly on today's machines, but these are great co-op games.

    Sadly, Goldeneye featured no co-op multiplayer mode, only several
    variations on deathmatch. This being considered, I still find
    Goldeneye to be one of the best multiplayer shooters that can be found
    on a console. Hours of entertainment in 4-player deathmatch mode in
    the Archives.

    Heretic 2 needs a hell of a lot higher standing than it has there.

    Great for a list, but if you are looking for good coop, don't pay much attention to
    the rankings.
