    "This is one of those games that is more fun when you play it as a multiplayer game. You can go at it solo but it will be considerably harder and slower to progress in the game. It is also one of the best looter shooters around so there will be plenty of rewards to go around. Definitely one of the best ps4 co-op rpg out right now."

    "This game was made to be played with others. Hunting monsters is more fun if you have a tank to soak damage, a ranged character to bring in damage and others to provide support as needed."

WHAT'S THE MEANING?

Co-operative gameplay or Co-Op gameplay is a form of gaming where two players or a group of players team up to complete objectives or beat one or more artificially intelligent (AI) opponents to win the game. It is different from the multi-player type of gameplay since that game pit players against other players.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the Left 4 Dead franchise,  one of the best selling survival horror video games in the last 10 years, is credited for breathing life back to the co-operative video game genre? The first Left 4 Dead game was released by Valve in November 2008 and quickly became not only a well-appreciated game by critics, it also became a commercial hit. It received an average of 89% score from GameRankings and Metacritic, and was scored 9/10 by Edge, Eurogamer, and IGN, which also named L4D as the Best Multiplayer Game of the Year despite the rise of war-based shooter games and multiplayer online battle arena games. Less than a year after the release, it already had 2.5 million copies sold, prompting the release of the sequel, Left 4 Dead 2. When it was released for the Xbox 360, the copies did not last on the shelves as it was reported that three million copies of the game were sold within two years of the release. On August 11, 2011, game reviewer Giant Bomb said the franchise has sold 11 million copies.

    "This is a good game to be played co-op with the number of classes that is available in the game. There will be a lot more ways to play the game if you're in a group and each one has a role to play."

    "@Jason Weaver Graphics isn't the entire package when it comes to games lmao. If graphics are the only thing you're after, then that's fine. But the game's design is literally made that way to give that retro vibe. Shame some people can't appreciate the classics, though"

    "This is just a fun little ode to the action movies of old. Its retro styling just adds to the nostalgia that you get when you play. It's full of pop culture reference, overflowing testosterone, and just a silly and fun game to play with friends on the PS4."

    "Ronimo games are a hit and miss with their titles. This one seems to be in between. The gameplay leaves much to be desired . If i was you i would pass over this and not worry about missing out on anything. The characters look great but the fun is just not there . Skip for now. "

    "This game doesn't focus entirely on coop, but it is a part of it. This might not be my first pick for this sort of game, but I would definitely enjoy trying the coop in it, and it is a good RPG as well."

    "This doesn't fit this criteria at all. This is not a page for a PS4 game, and it doesn't have coop features. This isn't what I'm looking for with this search."

    "Dragon Age games have always been single-player affairs in the past but this latest entry finally introduced multiplayer gameplay mechanics and allows 4 friends to play co-op. The PS4 is an ideal platform to experience this new multiplayer aspect of the game."

    "This is a very creepy game with great graphics. I do not think it is fleshed out enough though. They could have done a lot more with the story, and therefore the game itself. It is good, but not perfect, and fun to play with others."

    "A fun multiplayer shooter for the ps4 that you can pick up and play with your friends anytime. It is more light-hearted compared to PUBG with its cartoony graphics and gameplay but it's a lot of fun to play."
