The Best Xbox One Beat 'Em Up Games

When it comes to good beat 'em up games for Xbox One, there is a pretty good amount of variety. For that reason, we're ranking the best Xbox One beat 'em up games, with the help of your votes. 

One of the newer Xbox One games that has you smashing faces is Coffee Crisis. Released in 2018, this modern side-scroller from an indie developer is both satisfying and fun to play. If you never played Raging Justice, it's a must-play beat 'em up game for any Xbox One owner. Other options include 99Vidas, OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes, and Wulverblade, which is a blast when you play 2-player co-op.

Not every beat 'em up game on this list is a Xbox One original - take Castle Crashers Remastered for example, which came out in 2008. However, all these beat 'em up games are currently available on the Xbox Marketplace, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite beat 'em ups for Xbox One, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
