Yes this game is system link compatible. And up to 4 players can use 1 360 console, 2 wired controllers, and 2 wireless.

g33k answered:

Exactly what Qwert said. It is compatible with system link. May be a lil slow but it should work just fine as long as the connection is good.

imaloony8.0 answered:

Yes you can. With one console you can have up to 4 players, and with 2 consoles, you can have up to 8 people playing in the same game.

Hope this helps.

Imaloony is right. You just hook one ethernet cable from one xbox into the other xbox and choose multiplayer. Then system link and up to 8 people, 4 on each xbox, can play

sief8390 answered:

How do you add the other players? It doesn't give the option for me to add anyone

Guest answered:

I have this working on Three Xbox's. Mine and my two boys. I just connected all of them to my router and the router assigned a ip address to all of them and it works fine. IF you want to connect just two xboxes together you will need to do one of the following.

1) add a hub or router, If it does not assign ip addresses then you will need to add one manually to both xboxes. for example xbox 1 ip address subnet, gateway does not matter. xbox 2 ip address subnet again the gateway does not matter.

2) use a special cable called a cross over cable this enables you to connect two computers or xboxes with out a hub or router. then assign the ip addresses as described above.


I know me and my kid do!!!

Guest answered:

This question seems to be answered in different ways. Some are just saying that there is system link but they only mean one per console. The original question is if there can be 2-4 people on each console while doing system link. I've tried this, it doesn't work and people online say it doesn't work and it is pretty much nonexistent.
Imaloony8.0 and Buddy415 didn't explained how it works even though they say it works. This is probably the only time I saw online that people say it works. It's no where to be found, not even here:

Please, if someone is going to say split screen system link works, they better explain the hacking they did to make it work because it is originally not included in the game.

CMBF answered:

If you mean to host a system link game in which one or both consoles have two players playing in split-screen mode the answer would be no.
