Your Sinclair (Nov, 1989)
Little niggles here and there but very adventurous (and gory).
Sinclair User (Nov, 1989)
The Altered Beast Sega coin-op is a fairly wicked affair with some great graphics, especially which is why this conversion seems a little lacking. The graphics are pretty and the backdrops are quite good but the scrolling from left to right is slow and jerky with the attribute clash bordering on the painful. However the gameplay is there and it's okay so Altered Beasts should look attractive to fans of the coin op, if only because they can save a fortune in 50 pees.
Crash! (Dec, 1989)
Good conversion, beastily unscrolled to near undeath.

Comme sur MSX, Altered Beast livre sur ZX Spectrum une prestation plutôt plus honorable que sur n’importe lequel des ordinateurs 16 bits. Ce qui ne signifie pas qu’on se retrouve avec un chef d’œuvre, très loin de là, mais au moins avec un jeu qui peut parvenir à occuper deux personnes pendant une petite vingtaine de minutes. On s’en contentera.
