$wag looks interestin. Which platform was it for?

Best game I played in 2 player was Double dragon 2. Probably because I rarely had anyone to play multiplayer games with.

Beach Volley is great fun in 2-player mode.
Pang is another Ocean 2-player game.
IK+, Battle Squadron, Alien Breed, and we can't forget the US classic, Footman!

Yes, I remember now, I think there was an amiga magazine that called that Crazy Cars IV, because it was the same stuff.

well on the computer we all love i guess my favs are:

1.Chaos engine
2.Sensible soccer
3.Speedball 2
4.IK+
5.Space Crusade
6.Formula One GrandPrix(Geoff Crammond) - this had a weird but fun 2 player option where it would switch between cars and drive you on auto untill your next few laps came up!!!

on other systems there are lots, but here's just a couple:

Atari800 - Wizard of War + Joust

Pc - Call to Power 2(like Civ)

Ultimate Doom for the PSX was excellent for it's time.

I remember my friend and I lugging his PSX and TV just over a mile to play it round my house.

We ended up playing it for about 8 hours, and the funny thing is I HATE DOOM!!!

This thread is a bit old but
Choas Engine
Blitz Bombers
Knights
Qwak!
SWOS

Although I think Choas Engine 2-player has one major flaw. Whoever shoots the last node gets a big bonus in terms of percentage of the level they get credit for, which determines how the cash is divided. Anybody else have this problem?

Its gotta be....

KICK OFF 2 !

4 players on the amiga. I used to have so many fights / broken joysticks playing kick off 2 in 4 player mode.

We used to kick hell out of each other if the ref was weak (which would always wind my mates up), but when there was a strict ref like Steve Screech we used to dive over each others sliding tackles on a wet pitch and get each other sent off. What an amazing laugh it was.

We used to stop speaking to each other for days after playing this. Fantastic fun.

I also liked ik+, beach volley, dogs of war & midnight resistance in 2 player mode - but they were all a bit easy to complete.
