For those unfamiliar, Guardian Heroes is a 2D side-scrolling "beat 'em up" that features co-op and online play. Originally available as a Sega Saturn title, the Xbox 360 arcade version includes updated graphics and multiple game modes to take on. Guardian Heroes is available for $5 on the Xbox Marketplace.

Operation Flashpoint: Red River, on the other hand, sees you commanding a Marine fireteam. Here's a quick description from the game's store page (opens in new tab):

Between Afghanistan and China, the world's next flashpoint is about to erupt. You and your fireteam can make a difference. How much is up to you. It's not the soldier with the most expensive gun or the biggest heart who wins on the battlefield. It's the smartest. Semper fi, Marine.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Operation Flashpoint: Red Rive is available for digital purchase at the moment. Are you planning to check out either title on your Xbox One? Let us know in the comments!
