Golden Axe: Beast Rider Debut Trailer is Kinda “Meh”

The first trailer for Golden Axe: Beast Rider is fresh in from Sega this evening. Some of it looks cool, but overall I can’t shake the feeling that it’s going to be just another God of War, Devil May Cry, Heavenly Sword knockoff. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, that type of game is fun, right? But what I really don’t get is how this is supposed to be a Golden Axe game. Am I the only one who doesn’t see any similarities to the old games in the franchise?
