Golden Axe Warrior

One of the best games available for the Sega Master System is Golden Axe Warrior. It's a fun game that's similar to the original Legend of Zelda. I managed to pick up a copy online with both the box and the manual for only $10 plus shipping. It usually goes for a lot more than that so I'm happy. The video above is a video review of the game that someone posted on YouTube.

As the game came out right at the end of the Sega Master Systems life-cycle, it was largely overlooked here in the U.S. That's a real shame as the game is really fun and in many ways is actually better than Zelda. The ability to buy extra dungeon keys in item shops as well as finding them in the dungeons help prevent players from getting stuck like they sometimes can in Zelda. The difficulty level and player strength both seem to ramp up in a consistent manner and I never felt like it ever got too far out of whack.

The original game cartridge is playable on the Sega Master System, on the Sega Genesis (with the Power Base Converter) or on the Sega Game Gear (with a Master Gear Convertor).

The game is also an unlockable title on the X-Box 360 and PS3 versions of Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.This is probably the cheapest way to get the game, assuming that is if you already have an X-box 360 or PS3.
