Not a great fan of this game... Golden Axe smokes it hard...
The only great thing about this game was the fact you could replay the game over and over and still not get tired of hearing "Rise From Your Grave". Really surprised me when i first heard it coming ut of a genesis!
I've only played it on the Master System and at the Arcade's. It's an okay game, I thought the growing and transforming was pretty cool, but it sucked if you missed one of the balls (the ones that gave you your powers) and had to walk trough the level again bacause you couldn't come to the bosses without them.
Must've been 10+ years since I played it the last time, I don't even own a Master System anymore. <_<
At the time this was an awesome port, not ness. an awesome game, but converting what was on expensive arcade hardware to a near similar home port was kick ass and if you remember, one of the Genesis's early call to fame (I remember commercials/ads showcasing Altered Beast, Afterburner, and Shinobi). The game itself was enjoyable at first but quickly got a bit boring. After beating it once, which didn't take long, you would have to let it set for sometime until wanting to play it again. Overall I love this game for what it represented early on for the Genesis/Sega.
Awww I can't believe I have been gone this long that I missed this game of the week!!!
I Love Altered Beast regardless of the opinions stated... Yes it is a bit short but it was awesome back in the days...
It was the first Sega Genesis game I bought with my own money... 19.99 bought it right after my b-day and I got chills when I would hear "Rise from your Grave" "Welcome to your Doom!" "POWERUP!!!" hahah
This game actually made me bond with my sister, who is so far distant from me now
The first game I bought for genesis with my own money, and the second game I had for genesis after Mortal Kombat II
