Altered Beast is one of the most playable beat ´em ups of the era. Some aspects of the port spoils the experience, and the presentation feels old. If you enjoyed the original you will get many hours of fun out of this one. Newcomers might not enjoy it as much, and it is definitely not for those not up for a real challenge.
So, for nostalgic purposes, feel free to add this one to your phone, but don't expect this game of bizarre Grecian mythology to have aged well.
Altered Beast is more of an artifact than a fun video game. When you transform into a dragon or wolf and get to pound screen-sized boss monsters, it’s enjoyable. But you have to push through some really clunky punching as a goofball muscleman to get there.
Altered Beast is a classic in many senses, but while it's great to see the game republished it's most certainly not remastered; a great conversion for the Mega Drive back in the day, but a bit sloppy for modern gamers.
