Sega has opened the official site of Golden Axe: Beast Rider and released five new concept images that can be viewed below. The game is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in summer 2008.
looks pretty good but I do not have high expectations for this game even though the originals were fantastic. It just seems like when gaming made the transition from 2D to 3D some developers lost some of their magic. Sega being one of them. The last two classic franchises resurrected by Sega were Shinobi and Altered Beast on PS2. Both average at best. Being a long time Sega fan it was a let down. I will keep my hopes up for the new iteration of Golden Axe. I just hope that Sega doesn't let me down again.
I agree on classic Golden Axe as well as how the new one may fail even though concept arts are cool but I got to disagree with you on Shinobi PS2. It wasn't a classic like Revenge of Shinobi but it was really great and fun game IMO.
A remake of the old in hidef would be perfect!
Lol the original is one of the best arcade games ever - Even the stupid Conan the barbarian pictures when you complete it.
Don't know why this is new. The actual in-game pics released last month are horrendous.
I want this game to do well, but like everyone else... I'm not too sure what the end result might be! Let's hope sega's ready to make a rebound and become a respectable developer again!
I don't know who I'm more mad at. Sega for shafting Wii owners with not making a version for them, or Nintendo for making the damn console so underpowered in the first place, that devs can't be bothered to port them to it. I'm really effing pi$sed. The same thing happened to the Sonic game. Sure it sucked anyway, but the Wii Sonic game was even worse. God damn Sega. God damn Nintendo. This gen sucks sh1t. We have PS3 which out and out sucks, Wii which is mostly shovelware and good games get missed, and 360 which is the most unreliable POS I've ever owned. I want to play my 360, but God damn, I must get 3 freezes a day, and disc read errors a few times a week even though the discs are mint. Hell Nintendo, you better not make a POS console next time. I've followed you for 17 years.
