Joystick (French)
Le graphisme est superbe. L'animation est un peu lente, mais reste fidèle à la version des bornes d'arcade. Il est cependant dommage que quelques bugs intempestifs viennent troubler votre aventure. Altered Beast existe aussi en carte. Il est possible de jouer à deux, simultanément. Cette option n'apparaît pas dans la version CD-Rom. Pourquoi ? On ne le saura certainement jamais.
Génération 4
Là, cette version CD ROM est assez étrange. Tout d'abord, on est séduit par la présentation, car le jeu vous propose une introduction à l'histoire d'Altered Beast. Les bruitages sont d'une meilleure qualité, et la musique aussi bien entendu. Mais là où l'on est étonné, et dans le mauvais sens du terme. C'est que la version CD est moins agréable à jouer.
The Games Machine (UK)
Backgrounds are adequate (if somewhat lacking in colour and detail) but sprites are deformed and often strangely coloured. Animation is weak and there's horrible sprite flicker when there's more than a few creatures onscreen. Worst of all is the disk access which interrupts the game for a number of seconds several times during each level. Sound is very weak considering this is CD-ROM - a rather ordinary tune and a few sound effects that are worse than most Engine samples. Average playability ruined by tortuous loading, Engine Altered Beast is a big disappointment. For a real conversion, try it on the Sega Mega Drive.
