Good beat-em-ups for the PC?

Recommended Posts

Are there any good beat-em-up type games for the PC? I'm not talking fighting games, mind you. Things more akin to Ninja Gaiden, God of War, etc.

But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

If you mean beat'em up as in Street Fighter and the like, you are playing on the wrong platform.

 

But if it's just good melee combat you are looking for, Dark Messiah, Rune, Severance:Blade of Darkness, Drakan and Dynasty Warriors(number whatever) are good choices.

Yeah, Defiance is good. Really fun combat and the story isn' all bad. You'd need to play the previus games in the series to get anything out of it though.

 

 

 

One Must Fall :lol:

Hmm...perhaps I should have clarified: I've played X-men Legends 2 and Blade of Darkness and Oni (I'd really like to have more games like this), and Streetfighter is a fighting game, not a beat-em-up.

 

But so far we have:

 

Dynasty Warriors (was this ported to PC?)

Return of the King (ditto)

Rune (what's that like?)

Drakan (ditto)

Legacy of Kain: Defiance

 

thanks for the suggestions.

You don't do combos and special moves and blocks and stuff.

Yep. And Devil May Cry too.

 

Rune (what's that like?)

 

I've heard it's quite... mediocre. Unless I'm mistaking with something else. It's quite old isn't it?

 

 

Oh rune was pretty good in multiplayer in it's day, SP wasn't all that bad, too much jumping though.
