**   by ceptor. Comment: "The concept of the game is great, and the game play is good too. But there are only 5 levels! After you beat the fifth level, the game ends and it has a very disappointing ending!" 2001-10-10 15:41:24Z

***** by MetalCrusader. Comment: "I just bought an Altered Beast machine 3 days ago. I think the game rules! Maybe just because I remember playing it at the bowling alley every weekend when I was younger. I looked it up in depth on the internet. People really bash the heck out of it. Though the majority of the people that bash it are little punk kids that think that anything thats not on their x-box is garbage. Check this game out! Its a classic and a very cool game!" 2003-07-26 14:16:45Z

**** by BlaineC. Comment: "Although I agree the game is short, the graphics at the time were awesome, and the play was tough. The colors were especially nice. Cool game." 2005-01-05 02:35:08Z
