I adored Golden Axe in the arcades when I was a kid. One of the few games that I played sooo much that I could beat it, solo, on one quarter (Heavy Barrel and Ninja Gaiden were the others -- oh yes, I spent a lot of quarters to get that good).
When I heard Golden Axe: Beast Rider was a wholehearted attempt at bringing the spirit of Golden Axe into the HD era, I was hooked. I would have preferred to play the Barbarian guy, rather than the lady, but I do understand that Conan is out, and bikini-clad warfare is in, so I accept it.
I'm not gonna grab the game until I see which version (360 or PS3) has the better framerate/look, via the reviews, although I will favor the PS3 if they're the same, due to my affinity for the PS3 controller.
Lets face it, it probably won't score higher than an 8.0 average, and its not gonna sell millions. I'm not caring.
Who else is gettin' this game?
