Golden Axe - XBLA

I thought that this was a good rendition of the original game. To be honest, I don't like it when they touch up the classics, leave them the way they were, isn't that the whole idea? Good: Graphics are slightly smoother. Retro charm of the game is still there. After all these years, it's still fun to kick those little gnome guys.
Bad: Sound effects are the same as the original, which in '89 were good, but brutal by today's standards. Terribly short game with little to earn in the way of achievements. Although short, the gameplay does get a bit monotonous, with limited fighting skills and enemies to use them on.

It's a Worth the $5 if you liked the original. If you didn't like it back in '89 stay away from this one, it's pretty much the same. It's always a good idea to play the demo first.
