A scene from Doom 3 PC version (Mars City)

On the Xbox version through Xbox Live there is a Co-Op mode. Simply set up a room and choose whatever level you want to start on. There is no ability to save, if both of you leave the game you will have to select whatever level you left off at and start at the beginning. There is no PDA in Co-op. When one of the players dies a backpack with all his equipment is dropped and that player is respawned at the start of the level with only a pistol and must catch up and retrieve his backpack. The backpack does have a faint glow so it's fairly easy to locate in the dark. All the cut-scenes play without taking over the characters like in the single-player.
