Ratings and Reviews
A Pleasant Surprise
Altered Beast is one of those games that you remember being terrible from childhood, but when I decided to pick this up on mobile I was pleasantly surprised. The controls are great, the levels have variety, the bosses are simplistic yet satisfying and the presentation is atmospheric. I’m really starting to wonder why so many people overlooked this title as the pack in game for the Genesis before a certain blue hedgehog came along.
Great Game, with one exception
Great Game, I really only have one minor gripe is that you have to pay to be able to play it without ads. You have to pay $2.00 USD in order to be able to play the game and not have intrusive ads ruining your fun. If whoever does the Sega Forever line of classics can stop this two dollar B.S. just for a quick $2.00 from someone paying to get it without ads? Really? If your going to make someone pay for the full game without ads anyway why don’t you just have them pay $2.00 to even play the game I’ll continue to play the game once but, until there’s an update where we can play the game without ads and not be out $2.00 for this scummy business model. I don’t mind paying for extra characters in like say a fighting game since that my favorite genre but, come on really $2.00 to play the game with no ads?
Don’t Get This Game! Not Age Appropriate! Good However.
You will notice when you get this game it is 9+ (from the App Store 9+ means cartoon/fantasy violence) but this is more than cartoon violence, this may seem shocking, but there is some mild blood every time you defeat an enemy, the storyline is more than dark for 9 year olds, it’s about rising from a grave to defeat enemies attacking it. This should be age rated AT LEAST 12+ for mild blood. The game is good nevertheless, going back to the 90s to play the nostalgic beat-em-up on a really annoying piece of mechanisms. The shocking age-rating is why the 3-Star rating from me is shown. There’s also some gore! 12-17+ age rating for me. Shocking age rating for sure. Thank you for reading this long piece of writing. SEGA, please change the age rating if you read, I just want kids to be appropriate, please change the age rating, it would make the app much better. Thanks!
