Uhm...well the graphics look kind of weird. And what's up with "beast rider"? Since i know that sega = crap now days i won't say i have very high hopes for this, but it will still be interesting to see what happens here.

Looks cool, but when did the name change to Beast Rider? Sounds like a really lame name

Looks interesting. I think the graphics are fine too. The lighting is pretty good and so is the modeling. It's the texture res that needs to be upped a bit. Regardless, if the game is fun these graphics will be just fine.

The title has always been Golden Axe Beast Rider.

I won't look at these screenshots and judge...I will wait for in-game motion. Screenshots these days don't do the games any justice...well most of them.

Hopefully the gameplay will be something like this, and I wish the graphics would be more updated.

The textures are awful, embarrassing even. It also looks a bit jaggy. Really, the graphics suck. And seeing as how sega has destroyed every other classic brand they tried to remake, why would this be any better?

Also, what team is making this? I pray it's not sonic team.

They worked on the game so long, and this is what they come up with? I think Sega moved/fired most of the team halfway through development >.<

The 1st trailer was awesome. I was hoping for the graphics to come at least close to what seemed like a target render. But they did a worse job than EA did achieving their target :(

You guys make it an effort to read comments, please stop with the nit-picking of ever little bit. What you guys all seem to want is gears of war, but you don't realize is that the style of that game can't just be applied to others... other games look different, and just assuming everyone is going to add 40 layers of gunk and pixel dirt is ignorant.

Very true.

However, this game would look amazing with some higher-res textures.
The AA is already pretty good, the lighting looks pretty damn nice, and the character design is cool.

If they'd just touch up on the textures (a LOT) it'd look pretty darn good.

I agree with you.

However I have to add, considering we have seen so many good graphics this generation, this doesn't seem to make it as others.

I would say these are early screenshots of early built, and I rather wait to get excited but I won't turn my back on it.

I will keep my eyes on it for sure, besides, its only Q1 of 2008...so it's not like it is gonna be released in 3-4 months.

Remember a game can look alot different with months and months of development.

I've made it a habit to just press the ignore button on every new guy who blurts out the usual crap, and it's gotten pretty managable now I have to say.

These screens are the same ones we saw X ages ago, so they really don't say anything about how far along it is. More disconcerting is, however, that it's made by Secret Level, the guys Sega inexpicably bought after the utterly DREADFUL Final Fight Streetwise.

They're also working on the Iron Man game and it's really anybody's guess whether this'll be passable or absolutely worthless.

I do know that all it needs is satisfying slashing of.. people.. in the.. general.. body area.. so if it gets that right I'm pretty much there.

Outrun 2 was good
Panzer Dragoon Orta was good
VF5 was good

You really need to stop judging Sega as a whole on the single development team known as Sonic Team. There are a lot more development teams within Sega than just them that are currently much better. Sonic team messed up their own franchises(Sonic and Nights) and have touched no other sega franchise games(thank goodness a different department of ST developed PSU). So of course this game is NOT being developed by them.

It has nothing to do with style, the graphics are BAD. You can't excuse that.

There's nothing GOOD about the graphics. Models, lighting, textures, shaders... it's all BAD.

I have no problem with the graphics, especially as we haven't seen it in motion yet. But I have to agree with the other point made - Sega haven't made a single good game in quite some time.

If the lead character were male I'd have zero interest in this game. Good call on Sega's part.

I think it looks pretty good personally, everything seems blurred, but provided it has a decent framerate, it might look great in motion.
