5.0 out of 5 stars Altered Beast, an exellent Sega Classic March 15, 2003
By A Customer
Platform for Display:Sega Genesis
Altered Beast is one of the best games you can have on your Sega Genesis. If you like becoming an ancient warrior who comes back from the dead to save the world, Altered Beast is for you. In this game you start off as a pretty average sized man, but by collecting some Pomer Ups your man soon becomes a HULKING Brut. Collecting 1 Power Up will make him medium sized and collecting 2 will make him bigger and bader than Hercules. Now this is the cool part, when you get the third Power Up your character morphs into an altered beast. But the funnest part of this game is in the 2 Player mode. To do this push the start button on the second players controler, and have fun with a friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Genesis June 30, 2010
Platform for Display:Sega Genesis
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Genesis days.
What fun.
What a joy.
How depressing, I'm so old.
"Altered Beast" came with the Genesis I bought and it's a blast.
My first introduction to the new wave of 16 bit gaming and wow was I hooked.
Awesome graphics.
Great sound.
An incredible amount of variety.
It's not a very long game but who cares.
What is there is a blast.
Another one of those long forgotten titles that deserves to be played by today's gamers.
"Altered Beast" may not be "Pac Man" or even "Sonic" but it's still an awesome game that should not be forgotten.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Sega Arcade Game On The Proper Port July 19, 2013
By Mike
Platform for Display:Sega Genesis
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Sega's Altered Beast is a video game classic! When it came out in the arcade system, people would gleefully dump coins into the system to play as one of two resurrected Roman centurions in hopes of beating the nefarious Neff in the underworld as they rescue Zeus's daughter Athena from peril. Regrettably, those who had the original Sega Master System were likely sorely disappointed with the disjointed and disorganized gameplay that the title had on that platform. The resolution? Sega released it on Sega Genesis, where it played better than it did in the arcade (let alone Sega Master System) and allowed players the ability to customize the game's difficulty (there were control options that could enable a person to award or remove lives and health bars, in addition to setting the game difficulty.)

The game itself takes you through five different levels where your centurion battles a collection of ghouls, demons, zombies, and other unpleasant creatures that work to impede your progress. As you battle through each level, you must obtain three orbs by vanquishing a blue Cerberus whenever it appears on the screen. Once you obtain three orbs, you transform into either a Werewolf, a Weredragon, a Werebear, a Weartiger, or the ultimate creature, the Golden Werewolf, to defeat Neff and whatever form he takes to attempt to defeat you. This continues until you finally vanquish Neff and save Athena. When you beat the game, you get the credits and the option to play again but at a higher difficulty. Beat the highest difficulty and you get to play again. Not the greatest ending ever, but the gameplay makes up for it.

The controls are easy to figure out, but the gameplay is far from being a pushover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Altered Beast the original October 2, 2004
Platform for Display:Sega Genesis
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The arcade hit Altered Beast hit the U.S. 1988 and became

the next game arcade hit, 4 yrs in a row for Sega. For 4 yrs

Sega dominated the arcades with hits like Space Harrier, Shinobi

Super Hang On, and now Altered Beast.

However, the version for the pc is one of the sorriest ports

of an arcade game I've seen. Everything from the graphics

to the sound, to the control pale in comparison to the arcade

hit or even the 16 bit Genesis version.

However, this will cover both the Genesis and PC version.

Graphics 4:

The graphics for the Sega Genesis were pretty cool and great

at the time. The pc version?

Uh. Ahh. Eeek. The first problem with the pc version of Altered

Beast, is the fact, that the game only EGA, and VGA color modes.

However, the graphics still remain a bit of a pioneer cuz

this was one of the first Arcade games ported for the Genesis.

Sound: 3

Here lies another fault in the game.

There is actually a setup program for the sound, but in all the

setup program was unable to recognize my sound card, and

thus the sound of the game was reduced to those fuzzy and outdated internal pc speaker noises as sound.

Playing the sound on the Genesis was a mix, the sounds are

pretty cool but nothing really cool.

Control 3:

Like the sound, there is a setup program for the controls.

You can choose between playing the game with the keyboard

and using a joystick. However, it took both practice and patience to setup the joystick.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Power up" this classic on Genesis! October 3, 2012
By Rezivor
Platform for Display:Sega Genesis
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Altered Beast is a game that early on in the Sega Genesis' era, came with the system. You are playing as a character ( or characters in 2 player mode) that have been resurrected. You go through the game fighting various enemies, such as zombies,creatures,demons/ghouls,ect...As you play through each level. You encounter herds of oxen. When you see the blue ox, you must hit it to get a "power up". Your character becomes bigger & more powerful. After several blue ox encounters, you'll have transformed into a beast with powers! Each level you become a different beast. The 1st level you are the beast on the cover...A ware wolf type dude. Next level you are a dragon, then the 3rd level a bear,ect... It's a pretty basic and repetitive, yet fun game. When it first came out (on arcade and Sega consoles) it was a great hit! It still holds up pretty good for how old it is. The controls are simple. The music & sound effects are catchy. I'd recommend this game to anyone that enjoys old school classic games,sci-fi games,rpgs,fighter/beat'em up type of games.
