    A true story of medieval murders featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger (or Fabio), Bikini-chick, and Santa Claus...

    Pros: The multiplayer... the beating of thieves... the murder with thine axe! Classic beat 'em up action. Cons: Needs more moves than chop-chop-kick. Overall: If you claim your an old skool gamer and have never ... Read Full Review

    This is the reason I bought the Genesis...

    Back in my early days, SEGA was king of the arcades. This was why I had the Master System instead of the NES, and the Genesis long before I invested in a SNES. I cannot imagine how many quarters I shoved into Golden Axe ... Read Full Review

    A golden game it is...

    This game must be at least 15 years old but that doesnt mean to say that its missing what the games now days have, yes the games now have better graphics and better and longer story lines but nothing compares to ripe old... Read Full Review

    Hmm... Looks like a primitive version of Metal Slug!

    I only bought a Plug in and Play version of this game and to my surprise such a primitive game holds out well. This game came out before I was born and I was surprised I never played it nor heard of it in the 90s. It's a... Read Full Review

    The simplicity of this game intrigued me. Kicking, jumping, and casting spells.

    Leaping from the arcade and onto the Sega Genesis, Golden Axe set a new standard for home gaming. Nearly identical to its arcade counter-part, Golden Axe wowed home players with stunning graphics and authentic arcade ga... Read Full Review

    Hack and slash was pretty much defined from this game so its a must have for fans of that genre.

    Hack and slash was pretty much defined from this game so its a must have for fans of that genre. What that means to the non hardcore gamer is that you chop lots of things up. This game was full of it and gave any oth... Read Full Review

    Armchair warriors unite

    Before there was Streets of Rage, there was Golden Axe. And even now, despite it's age, Golden Axe does things right that many slow, boring 3D brawlers do wrong. It wonderfully captures the old school arcade feeling of... Read Full Review
