1.0 out of 5 stars SEGA Should Have Buried This Hatchet-Job November 4, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This is one of the worst 360 games, I've seen. I'll start off with the good. The graphics are mediocre, Tyris's run speed is kinda fast, and Death Adder looks cool. Everything else is terrible. This game takes the worst elements of the original Golden Axe and slaps them together at a pathetic attempt to make a next gen game.

Story - 0/10
The game begins with Tyris walking through a barren valley by herself and realizing she's late for a huge ceremony where her Dragon God flies down from the sky and blesses her people. She realizes that being late for this is probably a bad thing and starts to run, but encounters orc-like creatures called, "BOOGEYMEN." Seriously, that's that they're called. She battles her way through the BOOGEYMEN and arrives at the ceremony too late. A group of BOOGEYMEN kill all of the priestesses, knock Tyris out, and kidnap her all mighty Dragon God.
- If your Dragon God gets kidnapped by a band of Orcs, it's time to get a new God.

Later Tyris awakens and the dwarf from the original game is there, pulling an axe out of his chest. He sees Tyris and exclaims, "By my balls, I thought you were dead." Ok, if you're a hot chick who was unconscious and the first thing you hear is a dwarf talking about his testicles, that's not a good thing. Maybe he's saying he resurrected you somehow with his balls, or he is your father, or maybe that's just a contemporary Dwarven expression. Anyway, the Dwarf gives Tyris an axe and says you must find the pieces and reassemble it. Lucky for Tyris, the pieces just snap on. Near the end of the game, Axe Battler from the original game appears and says something like, "Gee, Tyris, I'm sorry your game sucks so bad. See Ya," and he's gone. I think there are 30 lines of bad dialogue in the entire story.

3.0 out of 5 stars not a must-own, but not as bad as people say October 22, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
it's funny. most people who give this game a crap review go on to say "i played for a half hour and shut it off". that's like watching a movie for 3 minutes and saying it's crap. you can't comment on what you don't know. after playing through most of the game (i'm almost done)i can say this game isn't as bad as people say. it's not without some design flaws, but in a game like this, combat is most important, and i find it satisfying. there is a neat parry/evade system with counterattacks that feels good.
here's is the games signature(it isn't riding beasts, been there, done that): in any game, typically when you enter a button sequence for a combo, the attack animation plays out no matter what, leaving you open for damage. in this game, however, you can cancel out of a combo with a parry/evade button press, whichever is most appropriate. in my opinion this is very refreshing.

if you're a fan of the conan-type setting, give this one a whirl. rent before purchase, but trust me, i've played much worse. i give it 6/10.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For awhile I wasn't sure if I should get the game or not seeing all the low ratings on the game but after the game went to a more affordable price and playing it I felt it was pretty good and seems to be bashed undeservedly by a lot of people. If you played the past Golden Axe games than this one won't surprise you with its gameplay style, the one difference is instead of choosing between four character styles you only play as one the main female warrior who seeks to avenge the loss of her clansmen. The graphics are very good and detailed and of course I love the main voice actress having many of her anime and some games she's done in my collection, the game play is pretty straight forward you have simple and powerful attacks, jump, and block/evade buttons as well of course the magic attacks you collect throughout the game. The game is pretty linear as more of the advanced gamers would call it(As I'm a more recreational player than one of those hardcore gamers) so there really isn't any miniquest or true exploring in the game itself though you can do some challenges in the main menu screen. I do agree while the storyline isn't the strongest it also isn't the worst I've seen either, also for past Golden axe players you do get the beast to ride and help in battle as well as puzzles in the game like previous Golden Axe games so another little nostalgic part put into this newest version. So if you like fighting games or are a Golden Axe fan looking for a game to add into your collection here's a underrated one to choose and if you're still uncertain I say try a demo of it if you can and decide for yourself....

Golden Axe: Beast Rider. Why give the game a title BEAST RIDER? You ride the beast just about as much as you did in the original. I admit there's more variety of beast to ride than the original. Not as good as I expected but WE must remember that Golden Axe was always a (hack & slash)adventure FIGHTING game. The control fighting felt awkward at first. I changed my controller configuration to profile 2. That way my attack buttons were (X&Y) and jump was button (A) and magic was (RT). The parrying & evade is where the art of fighting comes into the game. Once you get that technique mastered you will be able to battle multiple enemies at once. Without learning that technique you will get crushed & killed quickly.The gameplay feels more like Conan. So just to give players an idea of how it is. As far as riding the beast goes ...the same rules apply in this Golden Axe as the originals. Your beast will be killed if it takes too many hits or if you use up the entire beast powerful attacks. Also you can get jacked for your beast just like in the original game. The creatures walk very animal life like as if you really were riding a beast. The story isn't the best and actually starts off rushed. As you progress in the game you obtain the Golden Axe, which starts off as a boomerang until the axe is complete. Overall I don't think it's worth $60 but it's worth $40. It may get repetitive to some just like the original Golden Axe. Just remember it's one of those (hack & slash)adventure fighting games where it's gets better as you progress and LEARN to PARRY & EVADE or just be ready to get frustrated and take the game back for a trade in. Games from the 80's would just chew some of today's videogame players up and spit'em out. Read more ›
