I just hope it has more than 4 total coop maps(someone told me it was limited to 4). Im only buying it for that mode of play.

With the other Recons, ALL maps were coop-able, whether it was Firefight or Mission mode. If this is different and its only 4 maps total that offer coop, its staying on the shelf sad.gif

Don't lie to us, we know how it is. You'll but it no matter what, you've been amped about this game since '99 before there was even a FAT-X file system.

from what i understood from an interview on gamespot, all maps in the single player campaign have co-op, and there is a completley different campaign for co-op only which takes place after the SP campaign.

I see. So a generic coop being all the SP maps, and special made maps(very few) tailored for coop. I can deal with that smile.gif

Thanks.

not to be a downer but i have read newer reports saying that they wont have online co-op during the single player missions and that their are only 4 co-op missions, however you can also play co-op during any of the multiplayer maps. what i dont understand is that its been said that you must complete the story mode in order to get the 4 co-op missions. wouldnt that mean that their are NO co-op maps in the beginning? i have read both sides of the story that their will be co-op and their wont be for the single player missions, i only hope there is because that is a huge reason why im getting the game.

yep, they actually had 2 different developers design the missions, so co-op is basically a whole new game with multiplayer maps, brilliant idea adds tons of replayability.

Ok, I looked up an interview, it's basically a unlockable co-op campaign, set in nicaragua that you can play after finishing the main game, + 10 multiplayer maps

"IGN: How does the co-op work? What kinds of options do you have?

Christian Allen: Well, you can play Co-Op with up to 16 players with up to four per Xbox 360. There are customizable Co-op modes that are available on each of the 10 multiplayer maps, and a unique Co-Op campaign mode, allowing you to take on all new missions designed specifically for cooperative play, which takes place after the single player campaign ends.

IGN: Can you play the whole thing offline and online?

Christian Allen: While the Mexico City campaign is only available in single player, all of the multiplayer maps are available in Co-Op game modes, and once you finish the single player game, you are ready to start the new Co-Op campaign, set in Nicaragua."

that is what i was afraid of. call me picky or maybe just a long time fan but i still wish that the single player missions were co-op. im sure the co-op specific missions are great but there are only 4 of them and playing co-op on the MP maps doesnt sound that appealing. as many more options that they are giving us, they should have kept the previous options like playing single player campaign on co-op. hopefully they will add further co-op missions faster then they did for SC:CT

I don't see anything wrong with this.
The game basically has two modes, one offline and the other online.
The multiplayer maps are pulled from the co-op mode.

At least that's the way I look at it.
Personally I think this is a better approach.
You can use the single player offline campain to sort of polish your skills.
You beat the single player mode and then you're ready to test your skills online....

not exactly, the MP maps are built for MP, then you have co-op missions built for co-op, but you can also play some sort of co-op games (like terrorist hunt) on the maps built for MP. now my main issue is that while modes like terrorist hunt are fine for a quick co-op fix, but the main appeal to me with the previous games was to perform the objectives with a team of friend on the harder diffaculty levels. im sure the 4 levels they give us is great but its almost a step backwards when you go by the number of levels for co-op, maybe they can add it in a game update similar to what Rare is doing with Kameo.
