Back to the arcades! This little known game, made by Konami, is a lot of fun whether alone or with some friends. You play one of 4 different warriors who can transform into humanoid animals. Ban a speedster who can transform into a Minotaur, Claude an all-arounder swordsman who can turn into a werewolf (personal favorite), Max a speedy boxer who can turn into a werepanther (2nd favorite), and Ivan a powerful man who can transform into a werebear. You square off against many different type of foes such as lizardmen, hedgehog men, orcs, elephantmen (no not the offspring of the famous Joshua Merrick), golems, and more. The bosses range from a goatman, a phoenixwoman, a two-headed ogre, and finally a demon. The gameplay goes like this: you start off as a human with nothing but basic, jump, and special attacks that drain health. When you encounter a goddess statue you turn into your respective beast form (eat your heart out Altered Beast!) and from this point on until you die or run out of energy, the gameplay is spiced up with more cooler attacks even some throw techniques. When you encounter a goddess statue in this form you do a zipping attack, similar to that of Nightcrawler's special in the X-men arcade game. The only negative is the repetitveness, but what beat em up isn;t repetitive? This one's worth checking out.
