golden beat em up

User Rating: 9 | Golden Axe GEN

It's a staggeringly short game but one that makes up for it with it's fantastic features and quirks. The majestic music that really makes you feel like you're on a grand voyage, the dazzling spells which visuals fill up the whole screen...these things make the game seem bigger. I love the little things like the death screams sampled from rambo and conan the barbarian, the impact sound effects that sound like a chunk of wood being chopped, being able to ram your horned helmet into enemies as a dwarf, moving out the way of a charging enemy so he falls off a cliff...

And all this can be played with a 2nd player for co-op paradise.
