"The biggest shocker is not that the game is mind-numbingly painful to play, but it's just the general lack of features. For a game that carries the Golden Axe name I'd expect some of the features that make Golden Axe well, you know, "Golden Axe" to have made it in the game. I mean, where's my old midget-man with his jolly white beard and battleaxe, and what about the guy that thinks he's Conan the Barbarian, where's he at? I realise the game is not trying to recreate the time, enemies and or characters precisely, but we certainly have the familiar fiery redhead to do battle as, and those other characters certainly make, or rather their lookalikes make an appearance."
