  A great game

| | See all DSReview's reviews (3)

SEGA have done a good job in bringing Golden Axe over to the PS3, although there is no multiplayer, and the sound track does not match that of the original, this is still a very good game. I can not understand why others have been so negative about it.

  Dull and mundane.

Although the graphics aren't bad they still leave much to be desired for a PS3 standard game.

Controls are awkward and the attacks are limited, the enemies are repetitive and the landscapes dull.

If you're looking for a game that will entertain, challenge and that is worth £39.99, this really isn't the game for you.

  Horribly Dissapointing

I read the previous bad reviews and thought "Hey, I like the look of this game, looks like something I could really enjoy." £40 and a few hours later I realised how wrong I was. The camera control is thoroughly annoying and your character is very fixed! Not recommended to players who enjoy their improvement ingame to be recognised (experience and level advancements) and definitely not recommended to those who enjoy to free roam maps. A little like Heavenly Sword with poorer combat and a far worse camera system.

I totaly agree with the other comments!!!!! I mean this game is like the quest mode from the mortal kombat armageddon for which was out for the ps2! Seriously!!!! I dont get it! Y bring out such a pointless game! I had alot of expectations for this game but i am let down! The graphics are rubbish and the game play is not that great! I mean the only thing u can hav fun in is jus doing repetative things which gets boring trust me!!!!! This game would definetly be 1/10 for me!

Don't be fooled, this may be called Golden Axe and have Sega's name on it but it wasn't developed by them and boy, does it show.

The graphics themselves are very shoddy with basic textures, sparse environments and screen tearing at every opportunity (think of PS2 graphics in hi-def and you're halfway there.) Gameplay is also pretty basic with a simple level design that involves running along, dispatching a few enemies, running along some more, solving a simple puzzle, running along some more and repeat. On a plus point, the combat is fairly satisfying with blood and dismemberment aplenty but the beasts themselves don't seem to add much to the gameplay which is disappointing considering the title is built around that promise.

Overall then i'd say steer clear of this and rent it only if you're still curious about it. There's certainly some enjoyment to be had but it's not much and it certainly isn't the game that it could've been.
