Edge Preview - Golden Axe: Beast Rider

"Legacy content: people expect it," says senior producer Nigel Cook, explaining the return of the arcade classic's iconic features, with its roster of ludicrously-named characters and gnomes included. But the truth is that people expect a great deal more than just 'legacy content' – at a time when there is so much hacking and slashing to be had elsewhere, Golden Axe: Beast Rider needs to raise its aspirations beyond knowing winks and nostalgic nods to a 19-year-old side-scrolling coin-op.

and I keep checking out these stories to see if they've given me a reason to be excited and so far they've dropped the ball...then kicked it.

HeliosHex555d ago

Agreed. Don't forget to include the classic red/white one piece for the amazon.

Fonsecap554d ago

We definitely need a good golden axe Game, dotemu should definitely do it, and Capcom should remake final fight

RetroCaptainSteve554d ago

As long as it's not like Streetwise, I agree.

Fonsecap553d ago

There was nothing "wise" about that game 😅

Why do you have a screen from Street Fighter X Tekken for Street Fighter EX?

gamerben2851d ago

Iirc you couldn't "move in a circle" in EX like the article states either

gamerben2851d ago

Lmao also, worms 3d wasn't even a first person shooter at all either... It was turned based like the original games... Someone didn't research

KwietStorm_BLM2851d ago

Yet I have 2 disagrees lol this site never ceases to amaze.

@KwietStorm Don't you know this is not "News 4 Gamers" anymore, it's "Negativity 4 Gamers." A Place where if you say something complementary or ask for some helpful advice, no one gives 2 shits. But AS SOON AS you say something opinionated or controversial, get ready for a riot, mass homocide, and a lynchin' bro.

Uhh summa lumma dooma lumma

WheatBread2851d ago

The SF EX games were actually pretty good.

KwietStorm_BLM2851d ago

They didn't deserve to be printed on disc.

Bass_fisherman2851d ago (Edited 2851d ago )

This article could be made 10 years ago lmao

KaoSouL2851d ago

I actually played the Street Fighter EX games way more than I'll ever play SFV.

Duke Nukem really was awful. It was sad trying to see people defend it.

Yukes3210d ago

I thought it was great fun!

Sorry, can't keep it up. Such a disappointment.

Yui_Suzumiya3209d ago

I enjoyed it and as far as I remember, I was the only one defending it, lol. I was actually giving it a 10/10 on sites to counter balance all the idiotic troll reviews.

lordmiffter3210d ago

Can someone put a pillow over Sonic's face and hold it down until he stops struggling? It'll be an act of kindness.

Skellytorx3210d ago

Oh god. Some of these were shocking to play!

GamerGabs3210d ago

So many disappointments. It's so sad when a well loved franchise looks like it's dying in front of your eyes. (I miss you Sonic, I hope you come back some day)

ConboyAdam3210d ago

I dunno, I think these games are great in a certain way. They're a fantastic counter argument against reboots in general and that at least is something
