Beat it! Killed the final boss...wasn't too bad after losing the day before a ton. Figured out the basics...but the real key was just landing all the evade/blocks, which can be very difficult to time correctly.

I gotta say, the dwarf in the game...which you see only like 2 or 3 times in cutscenes...is dang funny. He just says vulgar, stupid stuff in a deep & funky voice. The final words in the game were from him..."Blood and s**t". Yea, okay, so not that funny reading it, but still, who ends a game with that sentence? lol.

Grats man! Was it fun?
Congrats, sound fun. It's in my queue. Sounds like a fun game to play through on the weekend.
It was fun...but it takes a good bit of tolerance. It plays like a very unpolished game. A repetitive combat system with an often annoying defense/evade system requiring fast reactions. To which there are bad camera angles making it all the more difficult to see when you need to evade...let alone do the reaction.

Hint if you play it though, there are camera settings....which I only found at the very end of the game. If you crank the Far and Close camera to both be as far away from you as possible...it really helps. Wish I found it sooner.

Oh the good though...as I've said in a few past posts. It's got a cool setting. The mounts in the game are better than any I've really seen. They're beasts, they all play different, some of them are big and monstrous...fun to ride and kill with.
Hey have you played Conan yet? I enjoyed that game up until the last boss. I really liked the weapon system as using the different combinations all felt very different. Like the sword and shield which felt completely different the duel swords or broad sword. You could also steal weapons, grapple and it made the game feel less repetitive as you could master one, then switch it up.
I haven't. I saw the demo a long time ago which looked decent. I'll throw it up on my GameFly Q.
Yeah bump it up, nudge me when you play it =)
nice! is it worth the buy? im alil sick of golden axe at the moment cuz i just beat sonics ultimate genesis collection and played the hell out of 1,2,3 and golden axe tower but in a month who knows? Respect!
No, not worth a buy...not in my opinion anyway. Rental.
kool ill stackit up in my game q with gamefly then how many play hours it worth?
I'm not sure, 10-15? It depends if you want to do more than the main story. They've got challenges and stuff too you can do after winning. I'm sure you could get 40+ if you wanted.
kool so like a weekend for me, if its a short game ill sit there from fri till sunday mornin and 1000 it if i can. i just got fifastreet 3 and i dont even like soccor but in 3 hours ive got 500 points almost,
