Those three games you mention are hack-and-slash. Beat-'em-ups are either one-on-one (Street Fighter) or scrolling (Final Fight).
The term "hack and slash" is today used to refer to a distinct genre of 3D third-person, weapon-based, beat 'em up action games in the style of Devil May Cry, including games such as Onimusha, Ninja Gaiden, Knights Contract, God of War, Heavenly Sword, and Bayonetta.

Speaking of OXM and its "great games no one played" list, I bought Binary Domain today, which I immediately put on my backlog pile with the full intention of playing Borderlands 2 tomorrow instead. I hope you're happy with yourselves.

I did make a rather hasty judgement of Enslaved, which I rage-quit over the stupid cloud-surfing and Monkey not wanting to travel in the direction I told him to, but when the mechanics are all wonky, you have to wonder why Capcom felt Ninja Theory were a better choice than Platinum to reinvent Devil May Cry.
