Not that I have any clue what these games would have played like has they been made like that, but I'm feeling pretty certain it's *not* something I would like!
I can't imagine that it would be something I would like either, in fact I can imagine that it would be even more annoying than when you're trying to play solitaire and someone comes and says: "Move this card here and then you can move that card there."
I enjoy playing adventure games because I can follow the story and solve the puzzles at my own pace. It would be very annoying that someone else would have solved all the puzzles while I was still exploring all the possible hotspots and dialogue options to see if those give any funny comment.
Also I don't see how team play could work well in a story driven adventure game where for example Player 1 is Sam and Player 2 is Max. It would require that both players play exactly at the same time and if I wanted to play I had to wait that my friend also has spare time. Other alternative is that everyone is at the same server and during my game session I might encounter several versions of the same characters which are all solving different parts of the story. IMHO that would ruin the atmosphere completely.
