GamePro: Golden Axe: Beast Rider Review

Any publisher considering revisiting a classic gaming franchise in hopes of cashing in on the current wave of retro-nostalgia should take the new Golden Axe game as a lesson in what not to do. Unlike recent resurrections like Pac-Man Championship Edition and Mega Man 9, Beast Rider is a terrible game that feels like a slap in the face to fans of the original franchise.

The Bottom Line: Fans hoping for a worthwhile update to one of gaming's most revered hack-and-slash franchises will be sorely disappointed by this poorly designed and utterly mediocre title.

My hopes for a good game died.

unjust5753d ago

Just what I thought even though I had hoped to be surprised. oh well there are so many other titles I don't even care.

HeliosHex557d ago

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

Fonsecap556d ago

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

RetroCaptainSteve556d ago

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

Fonsecap555d ago

There was nothing "wise" about that game 😅

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

gamerben2853d ago

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

gamerben2853d 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_BLM2853d 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

WheatBread2853d ago

The SF EX games were actually pretty good.

KwietStorm_BLM2853d ago

They didn't deserve to be printed on disc.

Bass_fisherman2853d ago (Edited 2853d ago )

This article could be made 10 years ago lmao

KaoSouL2853d 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.

Yukes3212d ago

I thought it was great fun!

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

Yui_Suzumiya3211d 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.

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

Skellytorx3212d ago

Oh god. Some of these were shocking to play!

GamerGabs3212d 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)

ConboyAdam3212d 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
