"Dissapointing"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I am a bit dissapointed in this game. Besides the fact that there is a woman running around slashing barbarians with a sword I dont see much of what i would consider RPG. The only way you get to upgrade your weapons and armour is by earning tribute, and the only way you get tribute is by killing barbarians. You dont pick armour or weapons up, there is no shop to buy stuff you need. I also found the game went from playable in the first stage to remote throwing frustration in the second. It got so hard that you were being attacked by a bunch of barbarians, some really big, that you cannot fight. A plus side is that there are special moves, but they work best on up to 3 opponents, over that and there are just to many of them and you only get a few at a time. You do however get to go back to previous levels and fight again for more tribute, but it builds up slowly and gets boring, you want to move on not backwards. I cannot play this game for more than about an hour, then Im either bored or irritated. A word of advice if you do get the game. Stay on your beasts as long as possible. You earn more tribute attacking your enemy on them than off. If your beast dies, go back if you can to where you got the beast and get another one. It might take a bit of running forwards and backwards, but the game will take forever anyway if you dont.

I grew up playing the hack n slash games of old like golden axe and ghouls n ghosts, so i wasn't aticipating mucwhen this game was released. But to my surprised i was shocked to find that the developers kept that no brainer kill anything thaat moves gameplay that made the genre famous.

Description

Golden Axe Beast Rider is an all-new take on the legendary Golden Axe arcade game, optimized to harness the power of next-generation consoles. This retelling broadens the Golden Axe story while retaining all of the nostalgic elements players expect from the brand. Players take the role of Amazon warrior Tyris Flare in this adventure to vaquish the evil Death Adder.

Tyris is out for revenge, having lost loved ones to the brutal expansion of Death Adder’s dark empire. Only Tyris has the knowledge and power to end the genocide that Death Adder and his minions are responsible for. Magic and melee weaponry are at Tyris’ disposal, and both means of offense can be upgraded throughout the adventure. Backing Tyris up are a host of massive beasts - killing machines that can be used to ride into battle, provide defense from approaching enemies, and offer a substantial advantage in close combat.

Grand-scale reconstructions of environments from the original arcade game give battlefields a greater sense of scope and history. Humorous ‘inside references’ - such as the need to kick gnomes for power-ups - will reward players who have fond memories of the prior games. And a somber, realistic tone will define Golden Axe Beast Rider as a thematic departure from the core franchise.

Features:
  • Mounted combat: Unleash a barrage of bites, claws and special attacks, as well as furious swings from the Hero’s own weapon.
  • On-foot combat: In line with the series’ lineage, on-foot combat plays a key role in this game, allowing players to alternate between light attacks, heavy attacks, blocks, ripostes, magic, and grappling.
  • Realistic dismemberment: Not only will limbs and heads fly off in sword combat, the beasts in Golden Axe Beast Rider will be able to tear enemies apart as well.
  • Fidelity to the classic games: Environments, magic, enemies, and beasts are designed to evoke fond memories of the original games.
  • Robust single-player campaign: Single player adventure offers more than 12 hours of critical-path gameplay; the option to choose from one of three heroes to play as increases replay value.
