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 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 Rise from your grave!! December 26, 2006
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:Sega Genesis
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As appropiately titled this game is what launched the Sega Genesis/Megadrive's carrer. It has two famous lines in this 1989 classic. They are " Rise from your grave " and " Welcome to your doom !" You can hunt down the rare Genesis version or buy the Sega Genesis Collection.

P.S I gave this a overall 4 stars because it is only five levels long.

5.0 out of 5 stars The very game that hooked me to the Sega Genesis! September 23, 2003
Platform for Display:Sega Genesis
When Sega came along with their Genesis system, it didn't reach the attention of the already popular Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Despite its superior graphics capabilities and sound quality, it never touched Nintendo's sales, at least in the States. Why? Perhaps we'll never know, because I think the Genesis is one of the best video game systems ever made, right up there with the almighty Super NES... and this game is one of the reasons why.
I cannot BEGIN to tell you how I love this game. It's so simple, yet a FUN game. It's hard, and you'll just be playing more and more just to beat this game. It has two-player ability which tends to make it easier (subject to your comrade's abilities, of course.). There's only four levels, but it's four levels of sheer oldschool ultimateness. The graphics are ok, if not that great, but hey... we all know gameplay is what makes the game, right?
This actually was THE game that hooked me to the Genesis. You'd think that after playing tons of Sonic 2, Aladdin, and X-Men that I would've been thoroughly hooked, and while those games are classics, this one particular game somehow snatched me by [my sensitive areas] and told me to buy a Genesis (which I did, with the ever-so-needed Sega CD attachment). Guess I'm just weird.
About the game since my review would be pretty short: basic story is that you (with or without your comrade) are raised from the dead by Zeus to go save Athena from an evil sorceror. In each level, you transform into a different beast after collecting three orbs (first level: wolfman, second level: dragon, etc.). Cool.
If you find something wrong I highly suggest consulting a physician before dissing on and/or playing this game.
