"Safe and sound in its shell, the precious pearl is the slave of the currents." - Important quote employed in this video game

Summary: Released in 2003 as the Irak War and its propaganda intoxicated worldwide medias, especially in America where government leaders encouraged soldiers and Americans to be patriotic and defend their country; or else society would label them as anti-Americans, "Beyond Good and Evil" came out during this troubling war frenzy and terrorist witch-hunt.
Summary: Honestly it pains me to have to give this such a low rating, but the compatibility is crap and the game is glitchy and the framerate is atrocious on a modern gaming computer. I love this game but it just doesn't work.
Summary: The controls are cumbersome, poorly thought out, flexibility of devices are minimal or cryptic. I would not suggest others purchase without having a game controller and experience mapping keys to it. Beyond this, after a few hours play it seems a really nice game. Story is involving enough that I will probably suffer through the short comings to finish it, although I am not in a hurry to do so.
Summary: Just as the title says to this comment, I ordered this game, but after during the first opening sequence to the game the game stopped and changed to a black screen saying that the gamecube couldn't read the disc. I tried restarting the game a few times, sometimes getting further into the game, but inevitably the same message would pop up.
Summary: After several years I still remember this game and that's why I am here to put in my two cents worth. I always had meant to leave a review of this game but for some reason that never happened. This game has it all and is similar to Zelda Windwaker in the way you traverse through the world interacting with the other characters and the set pieces. The action is certainly top notch.
Summary: The plot is great, as well as the gameplay. This paved the road for future stealth games, as well as many action games. The scenery is great, and the graphics are very advanced for when the game was created. Buy it.
Summary: It's so unfortunate what happened this game. When it first came out Ubisoft decided they were'nt going to put the dollars behind it to promote it. Such a let down. The game itself is fantastic. The story is great, the characters are engaging, and the sense of exploration is amazing for how "old" this title is. The world feels alive, and you don't feel so alienated. There are some fun mini-games and a bunch of upgrades to collect.
Summary: At first I was interested in it, but apparently my radeon graphics are too advanced for it. I had to play it without some of the hardware video options. In software mode (it seemed to be rendered in software mode), it was a little laggy and the shadows didn't render correctly. If it weren't for that, I would play through the rest of the game.
Summary: Yes.. This does run on Windows 7 64-bit. I bought the game back in the day when it came out but couldn't get it to run on my quad-core PC. However, I bought this download since it was just $3.00, installed it and it runs. However you may want to change the resolution in the game to a 4:3 ratio to prevent stretching to wide screen. There is a way to utilize widescreen proper but you have to play around with your video card's software (i.e. Catalyst Control for AMD GPUs).
Summary: If you have Windows 8, don't bother with this game - I have wasted over 3 hours of my time trying to get it to work at a resolution above 640x480 with no luck, even in XP Compatibility Mode. If you actually have a system that will run it, this is one of my favorite games ever, but now I've wasted my money here on Amazon.
