GA is an average game. I find it hard to complain about it or praise it much.

There are just too many better games to be playing to spend to much time on this one. Its worth a rent and return.

GoldenAxe: A TRUE REVIEW!

This game is very dramatic. It holds true to its rating as far as being "Mature." This is a true Mature game, showing blood, gore & body parts. This game is very thorough in game play and is very user friendly. Unlike most games, the cinematics and game play makes you look like you are in the game. It is the most REALISTIC game I have seen graphically. I almost felt that I was watching a movie, as the scenes were that clear. The only downside, which is VERY small; is every once in a while, the camera will go a little crazy, but only when engaged in a battle with several enemies at once. I believe that this game deserves more credit than it has been given.

Taken on its own, Beast Rider isn't a horrible game. It's perfectly average in fact. But when you compare it to action titles released earlier this year--such as Ninja Gaiden 2 and Devil May Cry 4--or the high caliber games that are releasing this holiday season, there's just no good reason to buy this game.

I'm gonna go right ahead and say that Beast Rider's biggest appeal lies in its sexy heroine, Tyris. Had the developers went with a male lead I think the game would fare a little worse on the charts. So if you're into virtual babes, you could rent the game to appreciate Tyris and not be too disappointed--there are several outfits to unlock, and they modeled her well.

Otherwise, everything's just... average. I think the game would've been a lot more interesting had a Japanese developer been behind it, like the original classic. If I could sum Beast Rider up for you in a few words, it'd go something like this:

God of War without the fun.
