Beat 'Em Up by itself please! Lacks any of the DC qualities the real Dead Island games have.

Even calling it a beat 'em up isn't entirely accurate, as it doesn't play anything like most games in that genre. It's a weird on-rails thing, I would honestly consider just putting Action on it.

Or hell, why not Beat 'Em Up + On Rails? That sounds cool.

You're correct about Action. It meets the site definition of that and pretty much nothing else.
Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

Looking at the footage, I think just placing it in Action would best serve this. I agree it isn't really meeting Beat 'em up... On Rails is somewhat accurate given the forced scroll and static column position of the avatar but given the movement between the rows it isn't really getting at what is intended for an On Rails game (the positioning you control is too important, if that makes sense, to meeting the game's goals).

Recommendation:
Add: Action
Remove: Beat 'em up
