There is only one downside.
The game is fantastic. The graphics are great. The game is fun and unique. It has a wide open environment in which you can race, explore, recover PEARLS, take pictures of various species of ANIMALS in order to make money, interact with everyone, rescue your friends and try to uncover the truth beyond unexplained events like a real investigative journalist.
The game is challenging and hard at times, and always interesting. Not to mention, funny... side characters are lighthearted and entertaining. There is a level of puzzle solving that is at times hard, sometimes completely impossible and sometimes relatively easy.
Overall, the game takes you to this cool unique world that sometimes reminds me of Don Bluth's DRAGON'S LAIR (in its animation).
The game is very fun and a nice change of pace. The only setback I can make note of is that the game is pretty short. Otherwise... This game is worth playing. For the low low price it is being sold, buy it. If you don't want to buy it, at least rent it.
I can't stress enough to you how this game just does everything right. Nothing is too difficult to figure out. You don't get stuck forever hating a boss. You never curse at the controls. To this day, I still love the way you enter letters using a dial instead of the usual "keyboard on screen". The story is very compelling, and it actually drives the game. I especially love taking inventory of the bioresources of each new place with a camera. The characters and environment are interesting in every way - physical appearance, background, psychology, abilities, etc. Music and sound effects are what you need and fit the mood. The gameplay isn't artificially padded with difficult/frustrating things to do to drag out the length of the game. Kills are not superviolent, but totally satisfying. The game is always fun, never work. Stealth is way more optional and shorter wait to return to normal than in "Metal Gear" and other stealth games, therefore actually fun (and even funny - those guys are hilarious). The graphics are beautiful, no errors or overly-contrived things to take away from your immersion in this environment.
Whatever your excuse is, (I can hear it now, "I just like cute Mario type games", "I don't like platformers, I like to shoot stuff", "I don't have time for adventure games") just give this a try.Read more ›
Beyond Good and Evil is masterpeice of gaming and creativty, blended into one 10-12 hour experience, you will never forget. The creator of Rayman has offically outdone himself, by creating a game, I can easily call my favorite PS2 game...and beyond that?
An adventure game that beat off Legend of Zelda in any shape or form.
I could go into serious detail as to why this is one of the best games ever made, but many other people have already done so. What I will do, is tell you right now, while some games are great, they will often lose you at points...due to a storyline that looped one too many times or a very difficult part.
Beyond Good and Evil does not have this problem. The moment you start it, you will be sitting there, playing it till you beat it. You'll have no choice, as the game plays better then 90% of the games available on any console or the PC. You won't run into problems that kill the "zone" the game will pull you into, and belive me when I say...you are not coming out until the credits roll.
In fact, there are only two minor problems with this game. First off, due to horrible sales(average gamers are morons..more on this later), and the fact that it can be beat in about 10-12 hours on the first go.
Still, most games barely last longer, with the exception of RPGs...but RPG's are drawn out on purpose, with a random battle every minute or so. Zelda has the same issues, where if you weren't lost or fighting so much...or backtracking so often, you would be done much faster.Read more ›
First of all, BG&E is *original* - and it's really not often you can say that about a game these days. Sure, it's not original in every respect - many of the gameplay mechanics are familiar, but it does have some very original aspects - most noticably the use of the camera, which is a simple mechanic that is very well developed and utilised throughout the game. The second aspect in which it shows originality is the presence of other "NPCs" that you must co-operate with. Nothing like Halo's "here's some extra guns to die for you", these are real characters with special abilities that complement Jade's own, and must be properly utilised (and protected) to get through the game. The use of email communications is another novel aspect.
Most of all though, BG&E is just incredibly well designed and implemented. Varied, dynamic and inventive levels are put together beautifully - never too challenging, but never let you just switch your brain off.
I guess the low price suggests the game isn't selling well, which is really tragic. There just aren't many other games out there of this calibre, so what are people buying instead? I really hope it proves to be a sleeper hit as word of mouth gets out about just what a refreshingly good game it is!
