Sega's 1988 arcade game makes its home console debut with the same levels, controls, and gameplay as its coin-op predecessor. The Genesis version of Altered Beast has players punching, jumping, and kicking their way across five side-scrolling levels inspired by Greek mythology. Dark unicorns, three-headed wolves, demons, and more will try to thwart the muscle-bound hero's progress each step of the way, but he can help even the odds by shapeshifting into one of the following stage-specific beasts: werewolf, weredragon, werebear, weretiger, and the golden werewolf. Yet before the protagonist can morph into a beast and use the transformation's special technique, he must first collect three mystical orbs by defeating certain enemies within each level. The ultimate goal is to rescue goddess Athena from the demon Neff, Lord of the Underworld. Altered Beast on Genesis is notable for being the 16-bit system's pack-in title during its 1989 launch. Less

Parker Brothers' famous board game of world conquest finds its way onto the Sega Genesis with all of the rules intact. Up to six players can try their hand at defending and acquiring 42 territories spread across six continents on a world map. The object is simple: eliminate all of your opponents by occupying every territory. The video game version lets you play against the computer on one of three difficulty levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. There is also an arcade option, which has battles being decided by players instead of the odds. A split-screen view will place each player behind a cannon with a variable range of fire, and the first person to successfully hit the troops running across the battlefield wins. For those who prefer a more traditional game, the classic mode remains faithful to the dice rolling aspect of combat, only this time the dice are represented by cannons. You can then watch the computer re-enact the outcome or have it automatically calculated to speed up play. Players can also let the computer randomly assign territories or take turns selecting them.

Altered Beast? More like Awkward Beast

Pros A decent arcade port, humourous speech samples and fairly cool beast transformations
Cons It's slow paced, slow and useless player character and very short
Recommended it? No

Altered Beast is an arcade port from Sega and something of a cult classic though not necessarily a classic for all the right reasons.
 
In this game you play the part of an unnamed Centurion from ancient Greece who is commanded by the mighty Zeus to rise from his grave and rescue his... Read full review »
