Best Fighting Games for the Xbox

They may be gritty, cartoonish, realistic, outlandish, 2D or 3D but they all are top notch when you are looking for a nose breaking, fist mashing, muscle rippling good time.

The Top Ten

1 Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

I like all games of Mortal Kombat series - Alexandr

By far the best game to have or to own on Xbox. - WAWL1234

Probably my Favorite game in the MK Series, I could seriously play this game for hours.

I like it and all, but what about Mortal Kombat: X - xXxSoccerxXx

2 Marvel Vs Capcom 2

Um, have any of you people on this site even played this game! This game has 56 characters to fight with for Gods sake, half Marvel characters and half Capcom characters. You can customize your party to fight with, customize the stages, and customize how you can fight. This game is the one perfect fighting game; it has all recognizable characters and refined easy to use controls. - masongilbert74

How Is Fight Night Round 2 Higher Than This This Game Is A Classic It Deserves #1 - doughnut

3 Soul Calibur II
4 Dead or Alive 3

Definitely this one.. I can't believe people actually like Deadly Alliance.. That's the worst fighting game ever. Watch some reviews please.. - NightAntilli

Japanese developed 3d fighting game.. can't go wrong.

Deadly alliance is not the worst fighting game the worst fighting game is pit fighter and shaq fu idiot anyway everybody I know that owns a Xbox has this game because its awesome

5 Def Jam: Fight For New York

This game is a mix of awesome fighting with foul language I also likes is because it bring hip hop into the game. it has choices of name brand cloths such as Jordan nike ecko and hundrds more I have to give this game a 10/10

6 Street Fighter Anniversary Collection
7 Capcom Vs SNK 2 EO

Ridiculous this isn't number 1... Bruh

8 Mortal Kombat Deception

Hello, this awesome game should be no.1. It was even better than Deadly Alliance. Year, way better. Each fighter had 3 fatalities and own voice. Plus its Konquest Mode was just brilliant - Magnolia

9 Dead or Alive Ultimate

This game has boobs!

10 Guilty Gear X2: #Reload

Then no 2 should be right here!... I mean come on!... Bruuuh

The Contenders

11 Fight Night Round 2

This may have been big back then, but when you listen to it now, it's just so angsty and dated. This guy is just an overrated Alice Cooper ripoff that I doubt will be remembered for generations to come.

12 Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

Poor gameplay good quality lots of characters

13 Legends of Wrestling II
14 The King of Fighters Neowave
15 The King of Fighters 2003
16 Fight Night 3
17 WWE 2K14

This game's cool in general, to be honest.

No, 2k15 is better.

18 SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom
19 Bloody Roar Extreme
20 Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe
21 Cuphead

How about Cuphead NO Fighting!

Cuphead suck at fighting

I Hate BATIM and Cuphead!
