Golden Axe

Rating: B

This has to be one of the most recognizable games of all time, and definitely one of my favorites. The Genesis port is pretty faithful to the arcade, though of course the graphics of the home version aren't as good and the music is a bit tinny. On the positive side, the Genesis version is substantially longer than the original, as an additional level was added where the arcade game ends. Choose from warrior, amazon (boing!), or axe-wielding dwarf. The dwarf kicks ASS, though he could use some kind of armor or something. What's with the green pajamas? No wonder he's so pissed.
