Golden Axe: Beast Rider (PlayStation 3)


A flashy hero with formidable combat skills sets off on an epic adventure through fantastical environments. Sound familiar? These basic elements are the framework upon which countless action adventure games have been constructed. While many games seem...

If it wasn't for the arcade game Golden Axe, I doubt I would be as interested in gaming as I am today. Heck I might not have even become a journalist! The original Golden Axe managed to open my eyes up to a world of immersive imagination of wonders...

Golden Axe makes a return

This halfhearted revival attempt leaves Golden Axe lifeless and dull.

Brutal dismemberments ; Campaign is reasonably challenging and long

No cooperative mode a la classic Golden Axe ; Many, many invisible walls ; Combat system rewards inaction ; Lame sound effects deflate dramatic moments ; Beasts handle like plodding mechs
