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: Lately I have purchased a ton of GameCube games. I am slowly getting through my backlog. I just finished this game after about 12 hours of Gameplay. IGN created a list of the top 25 GameCube games. This game grabbed the #12 spot and that is truly an accomplishment considering the GameCube has over 550 titles. Besides being released on Xbox, PS2, PC, and GCN, it was recently re-mastered in HD and released on XBL and PSN.
Summary: A lot of sub-par games have come out over the past few years. It can take some time to sift through the bad ones until you finally find a great title worth playing. This, my friends, is one of those great titles. A fun, well-written, creative action/adventure game, Beyond Good & Evil is simply one of those titles that every gamer needs to own. With an amazing stealth system, simple-yet-deep combat controls, beautiful graphics and sound (oh the sound!
Summary: I think Beyond Good and Evil deserves to be the adventure game of 2003. It is an engrossing, and creative masterpiece, even though it is too short. Graphics: 5/5 Beatiful water effects, life like animals, and a mix of colors give the graphics of BG&E a breathtaking value. Game World: 5/5 The world (make that two) which this game takes place on are huge, and you have the power to explore every corner. Controls: 5/5 Intuitive and easy to learn controls.
Finished over a year ago, but I still remember it...

Summary: It's not often that you come across a game that is so good it still ranks among your favorites over a year after you played it. But Beyond Good and Evil was such a game for me. This game had it all...fun and varying gameplay, good music, great story, and likeable characters. You play as Jade (and as a girl gamer, I have to say it was nice to have a heroine to play as for once), who starts the game as a lowly photographer but ends up having to uncover a vast government...
Summary: I'm hooked. Just about 50% through and the game just keeps getting better and better. The world just pulls you in - almost as much as Zelda: Ocarina of Time. You feel as if you can go anywhere and do anything. The storyline is mature and well-realized, giving weight to all of your actions and the world around you. On top of that, the photography aspect gives you a whole new perspective, as you are truly looking at the world around you in a different way.
