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.Read more ›
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.
Been gaming longer then the Nes/Mega Drive
Been gaming longer then the SNES/ Genesis
Been gaming longer then the PSOne
I grew up during the 16 bit war
so the Golden Axe Series means a lot to me and hold certain memories
I'm no Generation me hipster gamer that thinks 60fps makes a game
I'm not sure how I even missed this but, Golden Axe: Beast Rider is a solid update to a classic game
all the clowns trashing it I'm sure still go to school and don't even know what a kill screen is
If you are a child of the 1980's you should get a kick out of this game it's surprisingly really good for what it is
The Music is Ultra HQ (the sound mix and all the sound f/x is great it's been a long time since I've heard a Sega game with this kind of HQ Music besides the last couple of Virtua Fighter titles
Visually it's a very strong looking title i think this is the first time Golden Axe has gone into fully 3D Models (i could be wrong?!?)
It looks very good and it has lots of blood and gore something the earlier 16bit titles never had!
Gameplay" It's a old school hack and slash set in a 3D World (Is it on par with a God of War?Read more ›
When I first heard Sega was bringing back their Golden Axe franchise I immediately looked for news on it. I am always skeptical about classic 2D franchises being brought back to life in a 3D world, but I was hopeful that maybe Sega could do this series justice. When I looked into Golden Axe: Beast Rider after first hearing about it, I was extremely disappointed that it did not have coop, which was one of the main draws of the original game twenty years ago. Not only was there no coop, but you could only play as the Amazon, Tyris. No Dwarf? I think it's safe to say that the Dwarf was most people's favorite character, so not including him as a playable character was a serious omission.Read more ›
