Editor note
'Great shot of Golden Axe on the Amiga computer (or as many knew it growing up, 'God's gift to video game players'). The common consensus is that this is the best home version of Golden Axe a person could own.' - Ben from DAC (see links)

Trivia: (from MobyGames)
'The game is banned in Germany for violence (ban issued on 30.05.92). The game 'Golden Axe: The Duel' is not affected.'
--I have looked into this, and it appears all ports may have been affected, but certainly the Genesis, Arcade, and Amiga ports.
