Golden Axe Legend is a beat 'em up that, like most for PC and now finally 100% Dreamcast compatible , uses the OpenBOR engine, as well as a number of elements from the Golden Axe franchise to offer a new adventure in that universe full of the most pleasant surprises. Players can choose between several characters taken from the first two installments of Golden Axe. Among them, of course, are the warrior, the dwarf, the Amazon, and the panther man. Each of them, besides their normal attacks and magic, has a series of moves not found in the original games.
In Golden Axe Legend it's possible to counterattack and pull off lots of special moves, providing some additional depth to the game's combat system. It's no longer enough to simply hammer the attack button; instead you can gesture to summon the wind or fire, to give just one example. The game's development is no longer strictly linear either; instead you can choose your own path at certain moments, going through different phases depending on the directions you take. And once you've finished the main quest, you can also unlock new game modes.
Golden Axe Legend is an excellent remake of/sequel to the classic SEGA game, offering hours of quality traditional beat 'em up action completely for free. This release features a Special Edition of Golden Axe: Legend by Ripfire, which doesn't need the RAM saving
