As big of a Turtle fan that I am, I have to admit though that TMNT IV: Turtles in Time is pretty overrated. But having said that I still love it, I just find it to be one of the easiest beat em ups out there.

The only side scrolling beat em up that comes to mind right now is "Altered Beast". But hey, it's not as bad as some of these reviews suggest!

Brewster of Rage is the only Beat em up I'd ever need. But alas, I'm stuck with my repo cart of Rivery City Urcle.

I am in a scrolling beat em up mood at the moment, been playing loads over the last few weeks. I have no idea what my ten favourite games are but Street Gangs/River City is an absolute classic that I was playing at work today. Batman Returns on the SNES is superb, as is Return of Double Dragon and I really enjoy Turtles. Streets of Rage 1-2 are games I love too but Final Fight is something I find to be insanely boring and overrated.

Ten great fighters...

Return of Double Dragon.
TMNT Turtles in Time.
Streets of Rage 2
Batman Returns (SNES).
Street Gangs/River City Ransom.
Double Dragon (NES, I like this version).
Streets of Rage.
Dungeons and Dragons: Shadow over Mystara.
Knights of the Round (SNES)
Rushing Beat Shura.

Woa! Look who it is, i haven't seen you post around the forums in ages.
And great list btw. Well, aside from....Madworld.

hiya! yeah, been busy with other things lately but nice to see you around

as for madworld, to me was a sort of side scroller fighter, but not the traditional 2D platformer side scroller fighter you'd come to expect.

If any of you guys are as big a fan of Double Dragon as me then you really should play Double Dragon Advance sometime.

Except it's literally not a sidescroller fighter. It's 3D. You don't scroll to the side.

That said, fantastic game. One of my favourites for the Wii.

The best strategy in the game: go up stairs and pause balls.

I'm honestly not a big fan of Double Dragon, or the first Streets of Rage. I only listed them because I couldn't think of any other Beat 'em ups that I found enjoyable.

I'm surprised you've found any beat 'em ups enjoyable. That lifeless, boring, cliche genre should be renamed Bore 'ya 2death or Repetitive ina' can.

Just for you.

I could say the same about any genre you like, but I won't because I'm not 4 years old. <_<

I can't even think of 10. Top 3 though:
1. Ninja Baseball Batman
2. TMNT lV: Turtles in Time
3. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

It's no opinion! Fact: Ninja Baseball Batman is the BEST side scrolling beat'em up you've never heard of! Everyone watch a video of it on YouTube right now, so much effing charm! It's not just ridiculous it's super fun to play too.

It looks like anything anyone says makes them look four years old.
