Good arcade game, but it kind of sucks on console.
10 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is one of those games that was really cool to play in the video arcades back in the day. It was fast paced and very winnable. However, that is kind of the problem when it is switched to a console. Nothing was added to the Sega release of this game and you end up with a game that a person can win in like twenty minutes, maybe less. Thankfully, this game came with my Sega so it is not to bad, but there really is not much to this one. You have Zeus in the sky saying arise from your graves and your hero emerges from a tombstone and proceeds to fight legions of undead monsters. Then he collects a white power up and becomes larger with no more apparent ability. He gets another of these orbs and proceeds to become even more muscular, once again with no other apparent ability. Finally, he collects one more orb and morphs into an animal/human hybrid...a furry if you like. So yeah, like the old cartoon He-Man this game is kind of gay in retrospect. At the end of the level you fight a boss and then it is on to the next level. You turn into a wolfman, I think a tiger or some kind of cat, a bear, a dragon and finally the golden wolf. Though that last one is kind of lazy when looking back. Fun in the arcades, but it becomes very tiresome when you own it. Not like you could really do all that much other than use a code and decide what the guy turns into in each stage. Meanwhile, Zeus tells his hero to arise and grow larger! Now gain even more manly muscles! Now turn into a naughty beast man! One has to wonder what Zeus does in his spare time.
