Sega Vintage Collection: Golden Axe

Total Xbox
25 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Years will pass, games will evolve…and still, we’ll love Golden Axe . There’s just something about this sidescrolling action-fantasy series that charms us silly, be it in arcades, on ancient consoles, or on our 360s.
  • Pros: + Offers all three, + Supports local and online co-op; tons of nifty bonus features.
  • Cons: ? Do you love Tyris’ strongest magic (a giant, fire-breathing dragon’s head) as much as we do?

Sega Vintage Collection: Golden Axe Review (XBLA)

Gamers Daily News
8 June 2012
  • Summary: Not bad, but inferior to so many competitors available on XBLA at similar prices. Fans of arcade-style brawlers should still pick it up, but only after you have gone through better games first.

Sega Vintage Collection: Golden Axe

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: I love the Golden Axe series. While the side scrolling hack & slash is all but extinct now, games like Golden Axe were once an oft explored genre. And while there were a number of top tier games, Golden Axe laid waste to the competition, at least in my opinion.

Golden Axe Review

10 April 2011
  • Excerpt: What with the current trend in retro remakes actually being pretty good, we had high hopes for SEGA's Xbox 360 and PS3 Golden Axe: Beast Riders. All we really wanted was a good two-player hack 'n' slash that had lots of brutal combat, great graphics and some beasts to ride.

  • Conclusion: Huge Shame to include Online Co-Op but lock you out from getting any Achievements that way. Perhaps not worth 800Mpts but Def worth 400Mpts during DOTW. My personal favourite is 'Sega Vintage Collection: Streets of Rage' but this is it's Fun but not quite so attractive cousin.

  • Conclusion: For co-op win you need to play with a friend on your console if don't have a friend to play with or another controller. The online co-op achievement is quite hard because the online is dead so I would advise you to boost with a friend get it.

Golden Axe Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Beat the game without continuing. If you’re a fan of the original Golden Axe , this is definitely worth a download, as it’s essentially the exact same game you played in the arcade. The combat is just as basic, the magic looks just as bad-ass, and the end boss is still frustratingly tough.

  • Summary: Golden Axe is Sega's fantasy-themed, scrolling beat-'em-up, which takes the concept popularized by Double Dragon and brings it to the Middle Ages, complete with swords and sorcery.
  • Pros: Accurate emulation of the arcade original, with all of the features you'd expect to see in an Xbox Live Arcade release
  • Cons: Online play is a little shaky, Not much replay value

Golden Axe

27 October 2008
  • Conclusion: There's no such thing as a forgotten Sega franchise, but as to whether we want them reinvented or simply remembered, that's much less certain. The reputation of Golden Axe has outlived the genre to which it was king, so venturing back now to the land of Yuria is harder than merely mounting a...
