If this is online game, then you play by buying the game and connect to the servers.

If the game has been shutdown, you can't play it anymore.

Other options involve either licensing the game from Microsoft, or engaging into copyright and IP violation by making your own server.

Microsoft XNA Build beta from last year gave away a copy of the game code and assets. You could actually build the game yourself! However, a lot of the code was bunched together into a single library that didn't have source, so it's un-clear whether you could actually replace enough of it to make your own server.
