It's an okay beat'em'up fighting game, but i don't get what the fuss is all about?

User Rating: 7.5 | Golden Axe GEN
the game's plot is based on sorta a Conan-the-Barbarian style of fantasy. An evil entity known as Death Adder has captured the King and his daughter, and holds them captive in their castle. He also finds the Golden Axe, the magical emblem of Yuria, and threatens to destroy both the axe and the royal family unless the people of Yuria accept him as their ruler.
you have a choice to play as three different fighters. a dwarf, a barbarian and an amazon woman.
you spend your journey fighting through, villages and mountains until you come across to the final battle of Death Adder.

you spend your time fighting through Death Adders henchmen. there are the typical ones that are armed with clubs and maces, there are the giant ones, there are the skeleton ones and there are people who ride these weird bird-horse thing-a-mi-jig creatures that if you can get them off, you can ride them too.
you can also perform spells to knock out your enemies.

okay, for a mega drive. i also like hearing my foes scream after they died.

Overall: an okay game. i know that people say its an classic, but i didn't really enjoy it as much
