  • Excerpt: Originally developed in 2003, Beyond Good & Evil was met with generally positive reviews, and dismal sales. Eight years later, is an updated HD version enough to win some fans for the upcoming sequel? Yeah, sort of. When BG&E first came out, it was lauded for its original and compelling story, endearing characters and clever puzzle design. Thankfully, these elements have aged well.

  • Excerpt: Beyond Good & Evil HD is one of those games that will invoke nostalgia in you, the kind of nostalgia that will remind you of your younger videogaming days. The days when a group of mates crowded around a 54cm CRT TV with wired controllers and the hum of the PS2 in the background, good ol’ days that remind you of how far videogaming has come in the past decade.

  • Excerpt: Eight years ago, Beyond Good & Evil arrived to near universal critical acclaim, across all three major platforms of the previous generation. Despite critics’ initial praise, the game was largely ignored by the gaming populace; nearly a year later, I finally did my part and picked the game up for myself – deeply discounted.

  • Excerpt: : you really don’t see this anymore. I mean, there’s such a diverse combination of various gameplay elements; these days, while many genres do adopt traits of other categories of interactive entertainment, we see so few titles that implement so

  • Conclusion: Beyond Good and Evil HD boasts enough variety to keep it consistently entertaining, and so that you never know where you will end up. It's likely you'll get to race against unearthly creatures, swat some flies and explore a fascinating universe all in one sitting. If this title is ever going to be held as anything other than an esteemed cult classic, the time is now.

Beyond Good & Evil HD review

8 March 2011
  • Excerpt: How do a Nietzsche novel, a sassy reporter, her Suinae uncle, a government conspiracy and an alien menace all manage to weave their way together? With thanks to Michel Ancel and Ubisoft, that’s how. Bless the fan-fuelled outcry that gave us another run at this classic title.
  • Pros: Whimsical tone, looks great in an old-school kind of way, compelling story and convincing voice acting
  • Cons: Still niggling camera issues, missing current gen trappings and a complete lack of new content

  • Conclusion: At the end of the day, Beyond Good & Evil still has all the hallmarks of a timeless classic. The watery planet of Hillys was deliberately built to match the quaintness of Hyrule, and yet there’s a harder edge here that enables much deeper emotional attachment to the narrative and the characters.

  • Conclusion: C'est un réel plaisir que de voir Beyond Good & Evil ainsi traverser les années sans prendre une ride. Si, au fond, l'expérience de jeu demeure identique, ce remake HD parvient à sublimer le fruit d'une direction artistique de haute volée. Seulement, les équipes d'Ubisoft Shangaï n'ont pas résolu les problèmes de caméra que l'on dénonçait déjà en 2003 et ont délivré une version dématérialisée plutôt sujette aux freezes et autres bugs de collision.
  • Pros: Une direction artistique mise en valeur par la HD, La mixité du gameplay, Une ambiance sonore enchanteresse
  • Cons: Un remake assez buggé, Une caméra capricieuse, Des temps de chargement un peu partout

  • Summary: De game is met vlagen behoorlijk goed maar kan ook behoorlijk frustrerend zijn! Het camerawerk is op momenten belachelijk slecht en de paar onnodige bugs hadden vermeden kunnen worden. Het verhaal en geluid blijven goed en de graphics zijn mooi aangepakt. Het voelt toch een beetje als een simpele remake: graphics oppoetsen en uitbrengen maar. Er zijn aardig wat lastige bugs die ze eruit hadden moeten halen.
  • Pros: Sterk verhaal, Goede muziek, Lang genoeg, zeker gezien de prijs
  • Cons: Frustratie door de slechte camera, Aardig wat bugs., Alleen maar Nederlandse stemmen!

  • Conclusion: Beyond Good & Evil HD est donc une petite merveille, une perle que tout gamer digne de ce nom se doit de posséder dans sa ludothèque ou en l’occurrence, ici, dans son disque dur. Disponible pour une dizaine d’euros, le jeu en vaut bien plus que la chandelle. On n’a plus qu’un espoir maintenant : qu’un succès de la version HD remotive Ubisoft à se lancer dans une suite que la fin du 1 annonce clairement ! On en veut encore !
  • Pros: L'originalité du genre, La jouabilité, Les photos, L'histoire, Les personnages
  • Cons: Les problèmes de caméra, La durée de vie un peu courte, On peut pas sauter
