In the game you play as one of three characters: a Barbarian, a Dwarf, and an Amazon warrior. In this game you are sent on a quest to save both the prince and princess from the Death Adder. One of the best things about this game is that each character can pick up magic potion, from squirrel carrying bags, that can be used to activate their special ability. Each character has their own special ability. The Dwarf can control lightning, the Barbarian controls the earth element, and the Amazon warrior controls the fire element. The best part of Golden Axe is in its two player mode. Grab a friend and kick some butt together. There's nothing more fun then kicking ancient evil butt with a friend.
It's your basic beat em up, blast them with a bit of magic and honestly, it's a pretty basic game. I just don't think it ever got boring because it was challenging, great to play with a friend and always a good nostalgia game if you were getting tired of other games.
There were a few games that were required on SEGA Genesis, Any of the Sonics and Spinball, Streets of Rage, Altered Beast, the uncensored Mortal Kombat, Moonwalker and of course Golden Axe. Now that you know which ones you must get, start with this one and enjoy!
You can choose the big Conan lookalike Ax Battler, who uses earth magic. Tyris Flare, the She-Ra type amazon woman who uses fire magic or Gilius Thunderhead, the viking dwarf uses lightning magic (and the character who actually uses the Golden Axe) or team up in a two-player (the best way to play the game).
The story is a load of cobblers. Some dude called Death Adder (and his son Death Adder JNR) are up to some amount of evil and you've got to stop him.
So on you go on your journey of hacking and slashing goblins, skeletons and various other guys in armor. It's fun, but not great.
The sound effects are pathetic and do not show off what the Genesis was capable of. David Whittaker's music, while being slightly tuneful and medieval, was pretty bad and wasn't as memorable as Yuzo Koshiro's effort on the Streets of Rage games.
A fun game to play right to the end once (in a two player) but not as memorable as it's following what suggest.
