Beyond Good & Evil (PlayStation 2)

 

Beyond Good & Evil is an action adventure game from Michel Ancel, the man credited with the creation of the highly acclaimed Rayman series. This time out, Ancel is shelving his platform-genre roots in favor of a Legend of Zelda-like game with a heavy...

Ever notice how a truly good movie, book or video game can also be truly hard to describe and define?

Ever notice how a truly good movie, book or video game can also be truly hard to describe and define? Take one part Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, one part Metal Gear Solid and one part weird French comic book, shake well, and you might have...

At this point, I'm pretty jaded as a gamer. I can't even get excited about a new Final Fantasy release, and the fourth of that series is still my favorite game of all time. And yet, at E3 2002, a Gamecube game that was, by UbiSoft's admission, only...

It’s funny, in the end, that Ubi did such a solid job on making this for all three systems when the Gamecube version was the first that development started on. In fact, Gamecube owners will ultimately be the ones to suffer, since they had to wait for...

An inspired journey from start to finish.

Could I continue to praise Beyond Good & Evil? Of course. But I'd be wasting your time. You shouldn't waste another minute of your time when you could be spending it with this game.

Solid Zelda-style gameplay and cinematic excellence push BG&E into the upper echelons of action / adventure games. This is what an interactive movie should be.

Wonderful characters and story; fun, solid gameplay; amazing audio; beautiful graphics

Over far too soon; framerate drops

Beyond Good & Evil- Sony PlayStation 2

 

The year finally draws to a close and many of you will be doing your last minute shopping over the next few days looking for that special game to play over Christmas. Well if you play games on your PC or PlayStation 2 you're in luck because here we...

Beyond Good & Evil arrives on the PlayStation 2 in the face of some stiff competition including Jak II, Ratchet & Clank II, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time etc. In my opinion it compares rather well against all of these and has the added bonus of...

From the creator of Rayman, Beyond Good and Evil creates a wonderfully imaginative world and forms it into a memorable and enjoyable adventure. Rarely, outside of adventures staring a certain young elf-boy from Nintendo, has an adventure been both...

Wonderfully realized audio and visuals; Camera-based gameplay nicely implemented; Great story

Combat is lightweight; Minor framerate issues

Beyond Good and Evil is a wonderful experience that tells a fine story. While the game can be completed in anywhere from 10 to 12 hours, the pacing feels just right. If you were ever remotely interested in an adventure title without the words Legend...

Beyond Good and Evil review

 

Despite disappointing sales, Ubi Soft’s BG&E is quite possibly one of the best action/adventure games of the year, outdone by a few titles, such as Wind Waker. In BG&E, you play as a young photographer named Jade. You live on the planet of...

Despite rough sales and price cuts in retailers' post-Christmas inventory, BG&E is a solid adventure title that is well worth a purchase, now that the price is so low. With its beautiful, interactive worlds, intriguing storyline, and clever puzzles,...
