Golden Axe was originally an arcade game produced by Sega. This PC version has an extended storyline since the original version was pretty short. Although single player mode is fun by itself, I would recommend the multiplayer mode (no networks, the old-fashioned way, 2 people squeezed over a single keyboard :)
Besides the story mode you can now also play in a Duel mode. Here you must kill a few enemies each time. They just keep coming and the longer you can resist, the stronger the enemies will be. This is really cool because you don’t need to play the whole story again, but rather instantly experience a non stop adrenaline rush.
Golden Axe is one of those games you won't be bored of after you complete it dozens of times. It's very simple and straight-forward. You get to choose a character (dwarf, woman, man), each one having a unique weapon, special moves and magic abilities. (Which look really great)
You get to fight against the evil dead who want to take control over the world. The design of the evil dead is really great and you will see them in all sizes, ranging from your own size all the way to giants which fill up the entire screen.
Besides the normal fight moves and the magic power you can also take control of dragons. You first need to steal those animals from the enemy, but once you got one under control, you will feel like Hannibal. (However, he used Elephants, not Dragons)
This game is just a true classic in the action/fight genre, and should really be checked everyone who loves action games.
For all who think this game is too hard for them, you can give yourself more health in the options menu.
