  • Excerpt: Everyone remembers the day that they picked up their Megadrive ‘ or they should, anyway. More often than not, those consoles were provided with either a copy of Sonic The Hedgehog or Altered Beast . If you got the latter, you’d end up being the butt of many-a-joke, as your Sonic- owning friends ripped into you for not picking up the superior pack. Going back to IP from its huge back catalogue, Sega thought that a 3D update of Altered Beast was required.

Altered Beast Review

  • Excerpt: In this crazy world that is subdivided into gaming territories, living in Europe generally means we get things significantly later than our American and Japanese friends - if at all. So when something comes along to PAL-land that will not even make it to our brothers across the pond, we should be happy, right? Well, yes and no.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: As a re-imagining of the original Altered Beast this game is immensely successful. That said, the original was probably the epitome of average, and the basic graphics, animation, audio and fighting make this update a spot-on reincarnation. The beast transformations may seem like an interesting feature but the reality of them is just some slightly different, but no less average gameplay.

  • Excerpt: The original Altered Beast, which appeared on the Sega Megadrive all those years ago, sparked mixed feelings amongst the gaming community. Some considered the game to be a pure masterpiece, combining gory-action with some simple puzzle solving to create an enjoyable, worthwhile experience. Others considered the game to be a pile of worthless trash. Then, of course, there is the huge number of gamers who have never even heard of the game before.

  • Summary: Altered Beast is a below-par game which is made even worse by the fact that it has a heritage from an earlier gamer generation. If you played the original and are considering the PS2 reincarnation; run. Run away and don’t look back. Some things are best left in the past.

  • Summary: Vor mir haben glücklicherweise schon gewisse Personen in Kaderpositionen gemerkt, dass Altered Beast - nett gesagt - keine grosse Chance auf Erfolg in den USA haben würde, weshalb der Titel dort auch annulliert wurde. Wieso man nun aber neben Japan auch das Europäische Festland mit diesem Titel belastet, kann ich leider nicht nachvollziehen. Die Vorraussetzungen für ein gutes Game wären durchaus vorhanden gewesen, die Ausführung bereit jedoch kaum jemandem Freude.

  • Conclusion: La réalisation est désuète certes, le jeu est un patchwork de ce qui se fait déjà certes, toutefois, c’est un bon défouloir, ce n’est pas un jeu de chevet, mais on a vu bien pis. Beaucoup ont descendu en flamme ce titre, je pense qu’il rêvait d’un jeu et que le retour à la réalité a été cruelle, pour moi, le jeu a sensiblement les mêmes qualités et les mêmes défauts que son prédécesseur, un comble malgré la tentative de s’éloigner de la version originale.
