Rastan must be one of the oddest looking blokes I've ever seen. He wanders round wearing nothing more than a pair of furry Y-fronts with kinky metal trim, and his hair obviously hasn't been near a bottle of Head And Shoulders for months. What's more, this guy is meant to be the King of Maranna! Just think of the outcry if our Liz turned up to open a new railway station looking like this! P'raps it's just as well that he's a bit macho actually, as his kingdom has been over-run by all sorts of horrible monsters, sent by the evil Karg, and Rastan is the only chap brave enough to volunteer to get rid of 'em.

A hugely playable slash 'em up that's a sexy snip at budget price.

The game hooks you from the start, and great enjoyment is to be found hacking the evil minions and sending them back to the hell from which they spawned. Overall an enjoyable romp through the violent world of the Barbarian king.
Kati - Rastan is slick and compelling - anyone remotely interested in barbarian cause and those new to the sport have nothing at all to lose
Nick - Rastan is disappointing.
Mark - Rastan is a great game for all you closet mad Axe-wielders out there
A playable tie-in, although lacking in variation and content - the multi load is aslo annoying.
