Developed by Bizarre Creations and published by Activision in , Blur is our top pick for a split-screen racing game. Featuring arcade-style physics, anyone can join in on this neon-styled racing game. With a wide variety of vehicles — from muscle cars to exotics to Ford Transits — you can tackle the roads exactly how you wish. With tracks located around the world including California and London, you can cruise the world in style with your friends.

Just mentioning the game Castle Crashers will bring nostalgia back to anyone who played and loved the 2D beat-'em-up game when the title was released over a decade ago in Set in a fictional medieval universe, four knights fight against a dark wizard who has stolen a mystical gem and captures a collection of princesses.
Together, the four multi-colored knights must rescue the princesses, recover the gem, and take down the evil wizard. Up to four players can join in on the fun, represented by different colored knights and other bonus characters.

Resident Evil 5 is a continuation of the original Resident Evil game released in Developed and published in by Capcom, it continues to deliver scares that only mutated creatures jumping out from the shadows can provide.
While some feel that Resident Evil 5 has become more of an action game than a horror game, we think those individuals most likely have nerves of steel as this game is guaranteed to make you jump. Additionally, Resident Evil 5 is the first game in the series to offer a cooperative gameplay mode for two players.
Be sure to stay close and work together as you take out bio-threats; if you fall to the floor with critical health, only your teammate can revive you — just move fast enough before the mutated creatures get to you. Just because a game is kid-friendly doesn't mean that it can't be enjoyed by adults, too.

Thanks for being so helpful everyone. Watching the video for Wrecked, and looking at the new driving mechanics and racing customisability, I thought I was sold - but then I saw that there are very few tracks and, worse of all, no AI bots!
A shame really, I would have bought it straight away if there were AI cars. Usually I'll only be playing these games two- or three-player at uni, so the lack of AI means I probably won't get much out of the game. Good suggestion though, thanks. Modnation is extremely tempting too though, if everyone agrees the customization is just as fun offline.
I don't think I'll get Blur or Dirt 3 unless someone else thinks I'll really be missing out. As for Driver, one of my flatmates actually has it, although I haven't played it yet he's a bit weird. Regardless, it'd probably be a waste if I were to buy it seeing as I could just borrow it off of him. Any more advice is still much appreciated! User Info: MwarriorHiei. User Info: Nth. I prefer the racing in Modnation to other racing games.

For reference, I already have Burnout Paradise good game, but I was sorely disappointed by the lack of local multiplayer and Wipeout HD good game as well, but a bit of a waste as none of my friends enjoy it.
I'm not a massive car buff, so I'd rather not get GT5. The PS2 Burnouts are probably my favourite racing games ever, although my friends and I also used to enjoy more gimmicky racers like Micro Machines V4. I was thinking perhaps one of the following possibilities: Dirt 3 is it casual and fun offline? Modnation: Racers I know I'm missing out on a lot without online, but surely the personal customization is fun even if you can't share it?
Although if you guys have any other ideas, please say so. Thanks for any help! User Info: MwarriorHiei MwarriorHiei 8 years ago 8 sonic and sega all-stars racing modnation racers is ass.
