I am hoping someone might be able to help me.
My 13 year olf son has just saved up and bought himself an x-box 360.
I'd like to buy a game to play with him but am out of touch with the spread of games for this device. Ideally the game would not be rated 18+ (15, we could handle).
I'd like to get one where we can both play together (i.e. a controller each) and can fly fast space ships and shoot stuff around some sort of scifi theme
I used to very much enjoy Dooom (yup, I'm that old) and especially Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, which was great for flying and shooting things. I loved Half Life when it first came out too.
Are there any that fit the bill? Being able to play online (Live) would be a bonus but not that necessary. I'm not at all bothered about the game being bang up to date.
Otherwise from looking around I've been attracted the following games, but none seem to fully meet requirements (ie. two player and includes flying fast things)
- Bioshock (Bioshock 2 maybe?)
- Lost Planet Extreme Condition Colonies
- Dead Space
- Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
- Halo: Reach
- Halo 3
- Portal 2
- Gears of War 2
Any pointers very much appreciated. Thanks.
PS. Maybe the 360 is no good for flying games, i.e no joystick? I know nothing.
