Summary: Golden Axe is a really old side scrolled from back in the day. It was basically the game play you see in this game but in 2D. I liked the original Golden Axe games, but I bought this one for my collection because of the female lead character. There are times at which this game plays exactly like it's repetitive arcade counter-part and you'll find yourself pushing the same button for a few hours.
Summary: The combat can just get overwhelming & counter-intuitive. I played through the game on Expert my first time through, I replayed many of the challenges since I tried to preserve Dragon Statues for boss fights & chose to restart a challenge instead of using my statue in the game, so I felt I got pretty decent at the game. There is just a lot to keep track of. Sometimes everything works perfectly, but other times the combat system seems to fail me instead of me failing it.
its a pretty good game but Sega should've taken their time

Summary: I'm a big Golden Axe Fan, (I even own the arcade Revenge of Death Adder)... this was OK to play. sometimes it gets HARD, but I enjoy my games tough. i had fun & raged sometimes. If you're expecting God of War or Bayonetta launch in air chop up enemy 10000 times, this isn't your game. You have to play this game defensive too. you can't just run up to them tap attack buttons til they are die. the BEST thing the game has going for it is the parry/evade system.
Summary: Graphics are solid game play is good. There are 4 things that I look at...Price = great..Graphics - Game Play & Control = ok. It is not the greatest game but it is still entertaining even though you may do a little button mashing now and then. I would have been disappointed if I would have payed a lot for it but for under ten bucks it is a good buy. Your enemy has taken your Sacred Dragon and on your quest you are piecing together the Golden Axe.
Summary: I am pretty confident that I have played if not as much, more games than any reviewer on here and I can surely say this game is garbage. If you play Sega games (modern Sega games) you will realize they get a kick out of punishing the gamer more than rewarding them. This takes the cake.
Summary: Was really surprised by this game, the graphics are great, the game play is easy to handle, it makes enough connections back to the old platform golden axe game to take you back and just remind you what a big improvement they have made in gaming, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. It was delivered well in advance of the promised date and in outstanding condition, well packed.
A Game That Seems Undeservedly Criticized For What It Is

Summary: For awhile I wasn't sure if I should get the game or not seeing all the low ratings on the game but after the game went to a more affordable price and playing it I felt it was pretty good and seems to be bashed undeservedly by a lot of people. If you played the past Golden Axe games than this one won't surprise you with its gameplay style, the one difference is instead of choosing between four character styles you only play as one the main female warrior who seeks to...
