Summary

An all-time classic. Period.

The Good

It can be said that they don't make games like they used to. It's true! Not since Golden Axe was released onto home consoles have people started having no social life! Myself included. I love the levels, the characters, the music.... Even the enemy AI is decent! The difficulty level is not unbearable. The overall aura surrounding this game is superb. The control rocks, too.---- ****1/2 ----

The Bad

The only thing that rang in my head was some of those annoying multi-death jumps you take (there's only like one or two). The inability to change characters between continues is kind of annoying. Otherwise I was sold when I first played it.

The Bottom Line

Supreme side-scrolling action that will last for ages. Great play mechanics, characters, level variation. Fun with a friend or alone. A game for the history books.
