Electronic Theatre Retro Review: Altered Beast

Even to this day, some twenty five years after its arcade debut, many gamers hold SEGA’s Altered Beast in very high regard. It’s seen as a videogame that went places where others wouldn’t. Adult themes, horrific enemies and brutal combat all rendered in such vibrant detail unlike anything that had gone before it. Sadly, the last two-and-a-half decades have not been kind to Altered Beast, nor in fact were the three years that followed it. (Altered Beast, Arcade, PC, PS3, PSP, Retro, Wii, Xbox 360) 16/100

The reviewer's mom should get 16 outta 100. Altered beast is one of the best games that ever embraced the gaming industry.

It was great at the time. The graphics blew me away, but I played it recently and it's probably best to keep the memories and not sully them by replaying it.

Altered Beast is a great game, and a truly awesome masterpiece for its time, the 16/100 score is just retarded.

16 out of a 100 for this arcade classic!? Travesty.

I thought the game was kind of overrated myself, but I didn't think it was that bad, just mediocre.

I love the bear transformation, with his breath (?) that turns stuff to stone, and that crazy rolling attack.

The bear rules.

That is a bad review. At the time the game was very impressive.
