5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent PC game from the creator of Rayman January 1, 2004
Platform for Display:PC
I have no idea why Amazon.com has so little information on the PC version of this game, but this is truly an excellent game. Amazingly, the game somehow manages to successfully meld Zelda: The Wind Waker style adventuring with Metal Gear Solid style stealth and oddly enough, photography.
The first thing you'll notice about the game is that it sports some very impressive graphics. (On a good PC with full DirectX 9 support) The world is beautifully rendered and cool blur effects are used very often. Looking around in first person causes a light blur effect which look really really cool. I've never before in a game ever wanted to move the camera around for so long just because it's so fun. The game ran respectably on a Pentium 4 1.4 ghz with 384 ram and a Radeon 9500 Pro but I'm not sure how it'll run on lower end systems. If you're not sure how the game will run on your system, try the demo first.
The controls are excellent also, using the standard wsad and mouse configuration most of the time but switching to set camera angles at a few certain places. The preset camera angles are always very good and useful and help navigating tricky areas.
The gameplay is hard to explain but it's truly fresh and fun. Basically, about half of the gameplay is nonlethal stealth like Metal Gear Solid or Splinter Cell, which is a love it or hate it thing. Luckily, if you happen to die during a stealth part, (Basically, if you get found, you'll probably die.) the game will quickly take you back to the beginning of the room which lowers frustration a lot. The other half of the gameplay is Zelda style combat which is fairly simple but still quite fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under-estimated, Under-rated, Overly Fun Title October 18, 2004
By SC
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked this game up for $14.99 at the local CompUSA, and I did not expect much out of it. I had read many online and magazine reviews, but seeing as it was relatively cheap, I decided to make my purchase.

And I haven't regretted it at all.

With many layers of different types of gameplay, it's superbly immersive and almost like an interactive movie. Even from the very beginning, the game thrusts you into the fray during a cutscene. The integration throughout is fantastic.

Later, as you take more quests and become a reporter who tries to unveil a conspiracy, you have to sneak around (great stealth element) and take pictures of evidence (once again more immersion into the game world).

Other events and things you can do in this game are to take pictures of all the animals of the world (for scientific documentation), race in your hoverboat (and upgrade it), fly to outer space, and just plain explore the vast world that Beyond Good & Evil has to offer.

It's very open-ended ala Grand Theft Auto: Vice City style, where you can do things at your pace and/or further yourself by making money/upgrading your hoverboat. Even minor details are in this game, such as night/day transitions and animal movements/behavior.

Because the game is so immersive, you begin to "care" about the characters in the game, and the storyline/plot furthers this all the way until the end. Fantastic movie elements, suspensefulness and foreshadowing are all present in this game.

The music is also something that caught my attention, with beautifully orchestrated tracks, these songs are more than worthy enough to be in a motion picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars A throughout original and entertaining game February 25, 2005
By Slyne
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Just finished it, actually I finished it twice because I don't remember it crashing often but it just did before the ending cinematics. Kinda frustrating, but I really wanted to see the ending.

You're Jade, a girl in her 20's, living in the world of Hillys, raised by her "uncle" Pey'j, who happens to be a walking, talking pig (Sus Sapiens if you believe the game). Thing is, the planet is under attack from an Alien species named the Dom'Z and consequently under the protection of the "Alpha sections", who have declared martial law on the planet.

The population is not sure about the strange, helmet-wearing troops, but is too distraught by the war to really think twice about them. After the Dom'z make a direct attack on your home, a lighthouse where Jade and Pey'j are taking care of some young orphans, Jade accepts a mission to investigate who these Dom'z are and what their business is with the Hillyan people. I won't spoil the story, but it kept me entertained till the end, and made me think of a good animated movie.

One thing this game does really well is to take a cinematic approach to the action. There's always a lot of things happening visually so, even as you make your way through mazes or fight enemies, you'll never stop looking at your surroundings. There is no quick-save possibility but it doesn't matter because you'll always be able to restart within the last minute of where you happened to die. All of this contributes to keeping you immersed in the action.

Graphics are top-notch, yet they seem to slow down old machines a little if you push the settings (esp. the intro on my old GeForce4, but my X800Pro shrugged it off with all the settings maxed out :) ) Sound effects are good, music is memorable, which is always a good thing.
