Best Xbox Beat 'em up Games

This is list of the best Beat 'em up games available on Xbox.

We define Beat 'em up games using the genre definition: Beat 'em Up games involve close-quarters combat against generally small to medium sized groups of relatively weak enemies which usually must be defeated before you can progress. Generally weapon choice is limited or non-existent and character/skill upgrade progression is minimal.
