Win one of four copies of Golden Axe: Beast Rider

PS3 Competition | Let's ride.
PALGN has teamed up with Sega to give away four copies of Golden Axe: Beast Rider, two on the Xbox 360 and two on the PS3, as well as four artbooks. The game is now available in Australia for $99.95.

Golden Axe delivers action-RPG thrills as a small band of Riders embark on an epic adventure to recruit allies, expose the enemy and prevent the annihilation of their breed. Delivering an intense and unique combat experience, players charge into battle on the backs of ferocious beasts or take their chances with the enemy while on foot. Fighting skill, wits and even magic are all called into action as players immerse themselves in the struggle to defeat an evil intent on enslaving the remains of civilization.

Entry in the competition is simple - all you have to do is email your name and address and your preferred version to goldenaxe@palgn.com.au. We will pick four random winners and all of them will win a copy of Golden Axe: Beast Rider and an artbook. Remember, you must state your preferred version in order to be eligible.

Terms and Conditions:
This competition is open to Australian residents only. The competition commences immediately and will end on the 17th November 2008. Four (4) winners will win a copy of Golden Axe: Beast Rider, with two (2) Xbox 360 versions and two (2) PS3 versions available, as well as a Golden Axe: Beast Rider artbook. The judge's decision is final. PALGN staff members and their immediate family are ineligible to win. PALGN is not responsible for lost or damaged mail and the prizes are not redeemable for cash. We reserve the right to substitute any of the prizes but will always do so for a prize of equal value.

im gonna go out on a limb here and say that i think this game will be nothing like or bring back any memories of golden which is a bit of a shame but a good idea for a competition.

The reviews for this game have been terrible but the art looks great, I'd love to try the game for myself to decide. Saw a great screen shot yesterday showing the character in the original Golden Axe costume too.

I dont mean to rain on anyone's parade, but the general concensus is that this game fails miserably. Hence, it would be perfect to win a copy for free rather than pay for it and face a high likelihood of disappointment.

Great work on the contests PALGN!

Yeah the "general consensus" is that Mega Man 9 is a good game, and that's a lie...

Wonderfully snarky rebuttal to Golden Axe reviews here.
Regarding many of the “reviews” on Sega’s Golden Axe: Beast Rider: Be wary. The majority of these people (can’t call them critics) either didn’t complete a fraction of the game, don’t understand game design, or just plain suck at games. The words “Hack ‘n’ Slash” are an instant red flag. Beast Rider is anything but. Mindlessly flailing in frustration because you can’t get the game's simple controls/timing down is no way to play the game. Most gamers out there who would buy Beast Rider are far better players than the people rushing through a level or two to write these sad reviews; a sad but ever pervasive sign of the times.

Well a review is an opinion, and i've seen nothing but negative opinions about it which would certainly lead me to try before I buy.

Don't get me wrong - I thoroughy enjoy Transformers: The Game (based from last year's movie) quite highly for Wii which was almost universally panned. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as is fun icon_wink.gif

Too late, I bought it.
It's too early to call, but my first hour was good fun and I'm getting used to the parry/counter system. No way is this a 4.5/10 game, unless it goes really downhill later on...

Also, au_gamer is either trolling or a tremendous noob, I passed through about 6 savepoints in the first hour, and I only died once.
