Si SEGA craignait que la console de NEC vienne rivaliser avec la Megadrive, ce portage raté de Golden Axe a dû les rassurer. Mal réalisée, mal équilibrée, difficilement jouable, mutilée au point d’en perdre son mode deux joueurs, cette version fait passer la PC-Engine pour une machine à peine capable de lutter avec la Master System. Remplir un CD d’animations ne suffit pas: on préfère largement avoir un jeu correct. À ne découvrir que par curiosité.

While I can understand and accept that corners have to be cut, graphics simplified and gameplay edited to fit on a home system, there's still no pretending that Golden Axe is anything other than an embarrassment and a poor display of the system's abilities. Telenet never went on to convert any other Sega games. We can only be thankful for that.

This PC Engine version of Sega's classic is a unmitigated disaster and probably one of the worst Golden Axe port ever released.
