The Legendary Axe review

Reviewed December 05, 2003

Marc Golding says: "Sure, Axe is well drawn, with a gorgeous palette used shamelessly to adorn the exotic locales that your barbarian hero Gogan treks through to find Flare. But perhaps more importantly -- from the darkness of the forest, to the brightness of a mountain plateau; from the quiet mystery of a cavern, to the fanfare of one of the great final confrontations - Axe is dripping with that most elusive quality: atmosphere.

The Legendary Axe review

Reviewed January 16, 2004

Zigfried says: "Since just walking through a jungle, cavern, or castle wouldn't be nearly exciting enough, Gogan found himself an axe. A REALLY BIG axe. He can't throw it like Simon Belmont, he can't use it as a boomerang (Lycos of Shape Shifter), and he can't summon magical thunderstorms from it (Gilius of Golden Axe). But Gogan can SWING that axe!"
