Golden Axe: Beast Rider Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Golden Axe: Beast Rider, the latest in a long line of retro revivals, has enough gnomes, beasts and characters from past games featured to still be considered a true Golden Axe game.

  • Excerpt: Fans of brown and dusty wastelands have a lot to look forward to in this attempted revitalization of the Golden Axe franchise. For everyone else, the formula might wear thin after a few hours. It's not just the visuals -- Golden Axe has very few tricks up its sleeve.

  • Conclusion: The sound is okay, but the taunts and battle cries are really repetitive. What little voice-acting there is is respectable at best. Music is more The Barbarians than Conan in terms of quality, but what you can hear of it isn't bad. Golden Axe: Beast Rider isn't the game most Golden Axe fans wanted.

The Review Busters
4 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Golden Axe: Beast Rider is not worth the $60 price tag. Beast Rider is a disgrace to next gen consoles, nothing about this game shows off what the Xbox 360 is all about. No co-op and online play, does that make any sense?

  • Excerpt: The holiday season notoriously hammers us with marketing hype promoting the onslaught of AAA titles (Mountain Dew’s Halo 3 -themed Game Fuel, anyone?) they hope will land under our Christmas trees, so it’s surprising Sega’s remake of beloved arcade classic Golden Axe hasn’t seen more of the...

  • Excerpt: Breaking news: Golden Axe: Beast Rider doesn't have the cocky stylishness of Devil May Cry , the deep combat system of Ninja Gaiden , or the outlandishly epic trappings of God of War I doubt anyone is surprised; despite the developers' declarations of love for the original series, many gamers had...

  • Conclusion: At the very least, the campaign is fairly lengthy and will likely take you upward of 10 hours to complete. There are level-by-level replays and combat arenas if you want still more action, but these bonus modes only highlight the conspicuous absence of the cooperative play that put Golden Axe on the...
  • 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.

Golden Axe: Beast Riders Review

Xbox 360 achievements
22 October 2008
  • Conclusion: A repetitive and badly made game that makes me wonder if the series has any kind of future. This game feels extremely rushed and just can’t compare to games of a similar ilk. I hate to harp on about this, but if a co-op mode had been put in here things would have been so much better.
