Golden Axe has a modest direct legacy of one direct arcade sequel, along with some spin-offs and two other direct console sequels. While I think well of the arcade sequel, I don’t think anything has quite beat out the original to this day. Despite approaching close to thirty years since its release as I write, the game still holds up very well today. Luckily, there are still plenty of ways to try it.

Pero todo gran juego tiene sus puntos débiles y en este caso es uno solo, pero grave, su duración. Quizás esté condicionado por su género arcade, quizás fue programado para jugarlo poco tiempo pero muchas veces, pero lo cierto es que los jugadores más hábiles podrán llegar al final en unos 30 minutos, aunque os aviso que el juego es bastante difícil y muy pocos se lo pasarán en la primera partida. De todos modos Golden Axe es un juego muy rejugable (sobre todo a dobles) que seguramente os hará pasar tan buenos ratos como a mí. Un verdadero clásico de Sega que marcó la historia de los beat'em up con un planteamiento rompedor.

This one won't set the world alight graphically, but Sega's latest is a very playable multi-level hack 'em up. A cross between a Double Dragon style beat 'em up and Dungeons And Dragons, it's one of its best releases this year — and not a hydraulic system in sight!
Another winner from Sega, and one which seems to be exceeding popular at the moment. Have a bash at this one as soon as it reaches your local arcade.
