Golden Axe II (Genesis - Sega MegaDrive) is a cool Hack'n'Slash for the veteran gamers!
Maybe the game itself is old but the gameplay lives on, in the games we play today. Everybody loves Fantasy, Barbarians, Amazons, Wizards etc... so a game like this is a winner for sure.
Graphics are nice, music and sound is ok. (Since it's on a Cartridge, music can't be on the lvl of a CD) Gameplay is cool, actually I don't find it too hard, it's easy to get into it, and after that it's great fun! I recommend it for those who missed it in it's time, and for those who haven't lived back then, at least younger players can get a taste of the old-school gameing this way. (Since most old games are a lot harder...)
If you like Fantasy, there is a cool TV series called: Legend Of The Seeker. That is one of the best Fantasy series I've ever seen, with great special effects, and a really interesting, cool story!
