    Is there any great game on Xbox Live that has enjoyable online co-op? Hopefully something with achievements based on co-op.

    Thanks.

    I see you've decided already, but I would have also suggeted tmnt the arcade game. 4 player coop on one of the most memorable arcade games I've ever played

    Are you talking about XBL Arcade games or just Xbox games overall?

    I've had gallons on fun (apparnly fun is measured in liquids :D  ) with Army of Two.

    I would also recommend Castle Crashers as well as for Arcade games go.

    EDIT: Okay, somehow I didnt see the word "Arcade" in the thread title. My bad.

    Thanks for the Castle Crasher suggestion, it seems I was right in guessing it was a heavy favourite.

    Not only that, but I think it's one of the best games of its kind (ie, in the same vein as Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, Hack n Slash games). It has leveling, abilities, stores to buy stuff in, multiple weapons, and the ability to load up a beefed up character into a new game so that the time you spent leveling up isn't wasted when the game ends.

    Aegis Wing. 4 player co-op side scrolling shooter. All 4 players can even combine their ships together to form one big one. And best of all, it's free.

    Ok my brother is here and we are in need of some local co-op games, especially those we can get ahold of via Xbox live. We have done Castle Crashers and Assault Heroes 2, and while 'Splosion man is good we want something more rewarding with achievements for our time. Anyone with any suggestions what to get?

    Thanks.

    You want max achievements in shortest time? Dash of Destruction is your friend, and you can nab yourself the local multiplayer achievement too.

    I'll chime in and say good call for the people suggesting Castle Crashers

    Try Undertow. It might still be free, I can't remember if it was permanently free or just for one month or so. It's not the most amazing game, but it was kinda fun co-op.

    Steer clear of TMNT Arcade though. No local multiplayer, which blows. Soon enough Turtles in Time will be coming out, and if they fix it to have local MP, i'd recommend it in a heartbeat.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, Contra! And Space Invaders Extreme!

    I've played TMNT Arcade in a local co-op game with Twist.
