Excerpt: The original Altered Beast was the base side-scrolling BEU (Beat ‘em up). The screen scrolled left to right and you beat down everything in your path. Collect enough “Pwower ups” and you morphed into a raging beast…that beat down everything in its path. Altered Beast: Guardian of the Realms is essentially more of the same, the key word being MORE.
Excerpt: As with everything about this game, judging the presentation is bittersweet. The game keeps the same style and sensibilities of the original game, right down to the ‘Rise from your grave’ voice bit, although it still comes off as lacking. Each level is very bland and lacks any sense of progression. As you progress through each of the overly long levels, an overwhelming feeling that you’re not moving tends to settle in.
