Xena Warrior Princess originally began back in 1998 with the first televised showing of the super heroine of medieval times. Many, many young lads would drool over channel 5 and Sky 1 in the presence of Xena. She was quite the pin up of the late nineties. A year later and the Xena franchise had grown to the extent that a video game was to be produced to further satisfy her many fans. That game is, Xena Warrior Princess: Talisman of Fate on Nintendo 64.

It is no surprise that Xena is a common beat-em-up game, and that she is the central character. However she isn’t the essence of the whole game; there are also other characters throughout the series that you can play as. A good majority of them being sword bearing acrobats, of course. The trail effect has been incorporated to the character’s weapons in an attempt to add to the visual prowess of such a feminine, yet strangely masculine title. You can participate in a number of game modes, including a roster mode, which involves you choosing a number of characters. You must then fight all of them against your opponent in a single battle. If one character is finished, then the next one will take over, and so on, and so forth.

With new combos, magic powers, and a multitude of blows and weapons, Xena Warrior Princess is quite an extensive beat-em-up aimed at her testosterone overflowing fans.
