Lens of Truth: Head2Head - Golden Axe - Beast Rider

Lens of Truth writes; " Continuing through our trek of games from 2008, we sat down with Golden Axe: Beast Rider for our latest Head2Head and boy were we in for a surprise. Developed by Secret Level and published by Sega, this game was nothing more then a rip off of Heavenly Sword. In the end the comparison came close but only one system made this game only horrible, while the other was just plain shameful. We hope you enjoy this Head2Head cause we actually suffered through this one.

wow, that is some serious tearing...they are even in the screen shots. I really wanted to like this game too. Ah well, gonna have to dust off the original Golden Axe and have a go.

I loved the original back in the arcade and on the megadrive and was psyched to hear they were doing a next gen version (or rather current gen) but I was put off from the original unveiling of screenshots last year (or was it the year before?)

This is the first time I've seen it running and damn! What a mess!

Why they couldn't stick to the original premise of the game is beyond me, although with the amount of tearing with only one character on screen I can only imagine what 3 PLAYERS would do lol.

SEGA, what happened to you!?

The original Golden Axe rocks, stick to that one.
That's some awful tearing BTW.

The screen tearing was just bad.

ArthurLee3531d ago

How about an install, that would have helped I think. I wonder why they didn't use one with the tearing being that bad.

It looks like to me, these games use the exact same textures, just that it certain games the ps3 renders them a little 'blurry' and the 360 texture ends up looking more detailed.
I don't think that there are actually better textures or more information on the 360 ones, it's a rendering issue on multi games I think.

360 version more detailed

why compare such a crap game

ArthurLee3531d ago

There has to be a Golden Axe fan somewhere right?

stealyrface3531d ago

why you say? why?? someone out there may actually like a terribly produced game, I mean WOW everyone gave GTA IV rave reviews and it was one of the most awful looking games this generation. Maybe SEGA didn't spend enough advertising money to sway the the review sites. Assassin's Creed anyone!?
