Golden Axe II review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Golden Axe II, developed and published by Sega for the Genesis. The sequel to the legendary Sega hack-and-slash, Golden Axe II returns with more of the same difficult gameplay and medieval fantasy elements as the three warriors Ax, Tyris, and Gilius fight their way through mythical monsters in search of Dark Guld, who is abusing the Golden Axe for his own evil purposes. Challenge the normal mode or see how long you can survive in The Duel. This video review features video gameplay footage of Golden Axe II for the Genesis and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Eric.
