    A lot of you guys were probably to young to play the original Golden Ax in the arcades but it used to be one of my favorite games. Well at the time it was awesome and the graphics were sick. I mean to go from playing Q-Bert and Dig Dug to this was awesome.

    Well now they decided to bring it back after being gone since 1989 with a prequle "Golden Ax: Beast Riders". Sadly it wont be for PC but you guys with an 360 or PS3 have to tell me how it is. If need by Ill buy a damn system to play this.

    To bad you never played the original arcade version! It was a 100x better than the Genesis or Master System versions.

    go to mp3 on the top and then just click into any album because it links to just part of a big list of their discography wher eyou can listen and download all their songs for free, they covered all of the Golden Axe sound track

    WTF the woman is not a good choice for main character in this new game the guy sure hes balanced but her shes just good with magic. The Dwarf on the other hand is uber he can charge at enemies.

    Oh man, that just reminds me. Morphing into whatever animal/monster forms was so badass. The music that went along with it was also sweet. Dam, good old times.

    the dwarf was always the character to be. The big guy was just a doofus. I played it on sega genesis and I hope to god they make this version good.

    Though i have a feeling it could just be bad... so many good old game remakes have gone horribly wrong

    From what I heard, though I cannot remember which magazine I read it in, you are only playing as the woman... no other playable characters. That my friends, is annoying

    programs like MAME will let you play a lot of these kinda games, I think golden axe is on it as well... the arcade version that is, windows version lets you use a gamepad as well...

    I have it on Sega CD. Very fun game, I am hoping that they don't go and screw it up.
