Comment

SEGA's attempt to turn Golden Axe into a Street Fighter-style brawler failed miserably. It was more special move-oriented than previous games, but not enough so to compete with the true games of the genre. The name was clearly inspired by the famous 'Duel' game mode that featured in most console ports.

The one saving grace was that Gillius Thunderhead is playable. The only games to include him as playable are the original, the Genesis-only Golden Axe 2, and this game. It appeared a year later on the SEGA Saturn, which was similarly doomed to obscurity.
