Ahh man... amazing game in its day. Was only a kid but it used to piss me off rotten if I missed a power up & then couldn't turn into one of the beasts lol

I spent so much money at Wal-Mart on this and other games as a kid although got a Sega Genesis later on ;)

For all that though one of my favorite games on the system had to be Mutant League Football! Hockey was cool too but not quite the same and the cartoon was a blast.

SEGA, can you just hire Vanillaware to make a new Altered Beast or Golden Axe?!

I definitely buy it day 1 if that's happening :3

It was a really short game, but everything in it was fun gorgeous to look at.

Wise Fwom Your Gwave!

For some reason I totally remember Dominick Diamond's comments about this game back in the day on the Channel 4 TV show GamesMaster:

Dominick: "Walk along, kick, walk along, kick, walk along, kick. What an experience!" :D
