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

One of the newest Xbox One games that have you slicing and dicing your enemies is Final Fantasy XV. Released in 2017, the newest installment in the Final Fantasy series goes back to its RPG roots but adds a beautiful open world to explore. If you've never played Devil May Cry 4, it's a must-play hack and slash game for any Xbox One owner. Other options include For Honor, Diablo III, and Deadpool.

Not every hack and slash game on this list is an Xbox One original - take Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for example, which came out in 2008. However, all these hack and slash games are currently available on the Xbox Marketplace, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite hack and slash game for Xbox One, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
