Beyond Good & Evil

Gameguru Mania
31 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Created by Michel Ancel, the man responsible for the Rayman franchise, Beyond Good & Evil is a sci-fi third-person action adventure game. Beyond Good & Evil centers on a character named Jade, a female reporter on the watery world of Hyllis who earns money by traveling via hovercraft to exotic locations to photograph rare species and events. However, Jade's home, the island city of Hillys, is under attack from the DomZ, an aggressive race of aliens.

Beyond Good & Evil – Review

  • Excerpt: Beyond Good & Evil stars Jade, a photojournalist with cat-killing curiosity, nimble martial arts moves and a Mona Lisa smile. It's a new game with new characters, but what's stunning about Rayman creator Michel Ancel's latest work is how much his characters seem to like one another. After huge battles, other videogame characters like Mario or Final Fantasy heroes routinely pierce the air with fists and victory signs.

  • Excerpt: When I think of adventure games, I think of using a comb on a cat to get some hair so I can glue the hair to my face to create a mustache. Or I think of turning knobs on a machine to get the steam pressure just right so I can get the bridge to elevate so I can cross the river. By those standards, Beyond Good & Evil , released by Ubisoft late last year, isn’t an adventure.

  • Excerpt: 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 something that looks like Beyond Good & Evil, easily one of the best games of the past year.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Absolutely not to be missed. BG&E is as close as your going to get to Zelda on PS2 or Xbox, and the only thing besides Zelda on the Cube. This game really is comparable to Zelda in many respects, it's that good, and if that doesn't say something I don't know what will. Give it a chance, especially if you love great narratives and awesome gameplay. Play it now before you can't find it - because you're missing out for sure.

  • Excerpt: I really love to get a little surprised by the games I play, and although that is hard to achieve in my field of work - since it is my job to stay informed on almost every game out there at all times - there are still games that positively surprise me every once in a while... If I perhaps heard of them, but didn’t expect them to be this good. Beyond Good and Evil is one hell of an example for this...

Beyond Good & Evil Review

  • Excerpt: Ubisoft has delivered an excellent game right under the nose of unsuspecting gamers with their action/adventure game Beyond Good & Evil. It's recently been in the gaming news because Ubi has decided to cut its price down to bargain bin levels, and I'd have to say that after playing it, anyone who likes a Zelda-style romp would be doing themselves a real disservice to pass this game by.

We would like to thank the programmers of this game for doing such a thorough job on hiding the screenshot key from us. At least we've managed to make two exclusive in-game movies for your viewing pleasure.

  • Summary: 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 console-style action adventure game with a heavy focus on puzzle-solving and stealth. While Beyond Good & Evil feels pretty short, its interesting premise and impressive presentation pick up the slack and make it a game well worth playing.
