Golden Axe: Beast Rider Review


Another blast from the past.

I have to say that surprisingly, this game looks pretty good. Tyris has great, albeit it overly sexy, look that really is some nice eye candy. Throughout the levels, there are times where the characters and environments look awesome together, but not...

Golden Axe: Beast Rider - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games


Nearly 20 years have passed since Death Adder first tried to lay waste to the mythic world of Golden Axe. Outside of a couple sequels, a spin off and a shoddy remake, the land of Yuria has remained mostly silent over the last few generations, until...

Golden Axe: Beast Rider- PS3


I'm an action game obsessive and nothing gets me going more than a solid, brainless, gory hack n' slash. Part of the blame for this love of action can be traced back to the good old days of the s...

Golden Axe: Beast Rider (PS3)


Here's the original review I wrote of Golden Axe: Beast Rider, which "updates" and reworks the formula that claimed so many quarters in 1989 as the arcade (and later Genesis) game called Golden Axe: If you're hungry to revisit the classic...

Golden Axe: Beast Rider is the latest game being developed under the Golden Axe franchise (5th to be exact, excluding dodgy spin-offs.) The game was originally well known for being a side scrolling

Golden Axe: Beast Rider


Even if the Golden Axe name doesn't ring a bell, there's a good chance you played it on the Mega Drive at some point - you know, the one where you were a dwarf in green, a woman in red or a He-Man look-a-like in blue with a bloomin' great sword. Yes,...

It looks great ; Retains elements from the original games ; Unlock sexy outfits and swords for Tyris ; Ride beasts for an advantage over enemies ; Watch the blood fly ; Knock enemies onto Sacrifice Gates ; Get extra points in Challenge Mode

You're barred from exploring anywhere ; Doors remain locked because of glitch ; Picture can freeze momentarily ; Can't play as Ax Battler or Gilius ; Beasts are quite sluggish to control

Apart from the occasional bug in the system - objects freeze in mid-air, gates stay shut after you've clearly unlocked them - Beast Rider is a good entry in the sword and sorcery genre. The spells won't set your world on fire, but the fighting is...

What The Hell Is This Rubbish?


I used to love the original Golden Axe games. Sure they had naff graphics, and you only had to bash 2 buttons, but you could play with a friend, and it was great fun. This remake is 1 player for starters. The controls are very poor and once you start...

just ok.... sums it up really..


There are many things to discuss about this game... both negative and positive that it's difficult to begin. Fans of the original game will be pleased by the similarities this game holds with the original three, however that's all this game has is...
