    "Castle Crashers is a 2D arcade style game that is available on Steam for PC for $14.99. It is overwhelming well reviewed on steam. The graphics look old and dated and the gameplay seems silly to me, but it must have an addicting appeal to the players because they love it. I would say it fits the topic but the linked solution is for PC and not for Xbox One."

    "It is a fun and interesting game. It combines very popular stuff to make a good kid's game."

What's the Meaning?

Cooperative or co-op games are multiplayer video games where two or more players work together to achieve a common goal. It is also called player versus environment/enemy (PvE). This kind of gameplay is found in shooter, hack-and-slash, music, and role-playing games.

Did You Know?

If you grew up with an older sibling, there's a big chance that you were Player 2 most of the time. That means you played Luigi in some of the Mario games. Did you know that Luigi was created to add co-op gameplay to the first two-player Mario game? Game creator Shigeru Miyamoto portrayed Luigi as the sidekick in Mario Bros. for the Game & Watch, as in the next Mario Games. He was a supporting character even in the most popular Super Mario games. But as the franchise grew, Luigi became more established as Mario's tandem rather than a secondary. Nintendo even released several games and merchandise in 2013 to celebrate Luigi's first appearance. Fortunately, younger siblings don't have to be stuck with one Player 2 character when playing co-op games. Just look at these popular local multiplayer Xbox One games. The characters and gameplay styles in these local co-op multiplayer games for Xbox One are more diverse now. This means there's more chance to actually play with Big Bro or Sis instead of just being pawned all the time!

    "Such a cool idea for a Lego themed video game. I liked it though I'm not so video game savvy, because it is designed so that even novices can play! It is really easy to grasp the rules - which I often find is not the case in most video games. So learning is a breeze. It does remind me a bit of Minecraft, but I find this game even better because adults can enjoy it too. The one thing they could do is give a more comprehensive booklet that gives rules, ideas for game play, etc. Other than that, stellar game and one that the entire family will love, not just the kids!

I had to have it!! 2 extra missions, Lost in Nightmares, and Desperate Escape. Different costumes, and weapons. It's worth it, and it is never leaving my gaming library-it is just that fun!! Excellent replay value, you can always go back, unlock the infinite ammo, replay your favorite parts of the game. You can command the IA to attack mode, best AI yet. Your partner will attack zombies and enemies, AND collect items for you!! You can play as co-op, in any part of the game, having a mic helps.
