Co-op survival horror games

Any recommendations? I just finished playing Resident Evil 5 with a friend and it was a blast! I own Killing Floor and L4D and KF is not really co-op IMO. It's more of a run and gun, kill as many yourself as you can type game. L4D isn't scary...it's goofy. Plus, is L4D even considered a survival horror? I mean you are given an infinite ammo supply and a crazy amount of mollys/pipe bombs.

I enjoyed RE5 because there was an inventory system and it required you to complete tasks as a team. There also isn't a ton of ammo and you have to search for items.

Thanks!

It's not co-op, but if you like spooky survivor games you need to get Penumbra.

re5 really wasn't a horror either except for a few jump scares.. it was a action.


edit: re5 was fun to play coop though, i did like that.
my favorite was sniping the villagers to cover whoever i got paired with online.. tons of fun to cover with snipes.

Penumbra is awesome and you can go to the developer's(Frictional Games) web store now to pre-order their upcoming game, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. It's set to release on September 8th and should be even scarier than the Penumbra games.

Star Treck Online. Oh the horror... Try to survive that game for a week.

on a serious note:
I think you just want a co-op game, but added the horror because you want less action and more puzzle solving and co-op.
and I think you also want it fps or 3rd person view.

Hmm...
F.E.A.R? (I know F.E.A.R 3 will have co-op, haven't tested 2.)
There is also some VERY good Resident Evil maps for the Half-Life mod Sven Co-op

Hmm... System Shock 2?


Good Half-Life 2 mods:
Zombie Master
Zombie Panic

If you are really desperate, try ObsCure for PS2?

You might enjoy Obscure and Obscure 2: The Aftermath. They both offer local co-op (no LAN or online options that I know of, unfortunately), but they're old-school, traditional survival-horror games similar to the original Resident Evil.

They're both a little rough around the edges, but the co-op is enjoyable. The first game is set in a high school, with you controlling five students with unique abilities, switching out on the fly, freely roaming the campus, solving puzzles, fighting enemies, managing health and ammo resources, etc. The second game follows some of the same characters a few years later in college, and is far more linear and streamlined, ultimately not as good, but fun if you've played the first game.

I wrote more about Obscure if you're curious about it.

If you can get a hold of System Shock 2, I highly recommend it - it is a seminal masterwork.

I personally like KF - not sure how far you got through it; but if you try soloing beyond hard difficulty you are going to get chewed up.

F.E.A.R 3 is all about co op. The game have a cool scoring system and fun co-op campaing and multiplayer modes like ing Run and King Soul.

Ace42, and Daniel, please note the date of this thread.


I would assume the OP has long decided (and probably played) the games in question.

Some loon decided to reopen this old post.
