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.

The story is too old to be commented.

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.
