Golden Axe: Beast Rider

Fragland
8 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Forget everything you knew about Golden Axe. Forget that you played it with your friend or your brother and try not to remember the fun you experienced with it. Forget that it was an enjoyable game and erase the memory of what Golden Axe once was.

4 November 2008
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Through my many years of gaming, arcade games have always held a soft spot for me. Even today, I can wander into a games arcade and pop in a few coins to play Street Fighter. But one of the classic arcade games that I used to play with my friends was Golden Axe.

GameTrailers
27 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Golden Axe: Beast Rider isn’t just a fresh coat of paint over a 16-bit classic. It’s more a case of out with the old and in with the new. With 3D visuals, the revival of a sword-slashing heroine, and a familiar, yet distant, cast of evil-doers, is it a trip down memory lane, or a whole new,...

New Axe Is Far From Golden

GIN
24 October 2008
  • Excerpt: "What blasphemy is this?" These are the first words that Golden Axe’s lead character Tyris Flare says when she sees the destruction of her homeland. It is also the perfect act of foreshadowing, as I ended up asking the same question while playing Beast Rider.

This halfhearted revival attempt leaves Golden Axe lifeless and dull.

GameSpot
24 October 2008
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Brutal dismemberments, Campaign is reasonably challenging and long
  • Cons: 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

Crispy Gamer
21 October 2008
  • Excerpt: 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 side-scrolling beat-'em-up through the prism of current...
