Excerpt: 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 engaging storywise and by the sheer ambiance that the game presents.
Pros: Wonderfully realized audio and visuals, Camera-based gameplay nicely implemented, Great story
Cons: Combat is lightweight, Minor framerate issues
Excerpt: In the future (four hundred years or so), you will have to take on the role of a female photojournalist in order to sift through a thick plot and large storyline. In this future you will be armed with your friends, a stick and a camera (yes, a camera). Well that's the way it would be if you were playing Beyond Good and Evil . The graphics in Beyond are outstanding.
Excerpt: I think most of the games I decide to buy on a random whim after seeing them advertised have never let me down. I saw the advert for Beyond Good and Evil, and seeing how it's a genre I've never really played before, decided to try my luck out on the game. And I adore the game.
Pros: + Pros-Brilliant graphics and game play
Cons: - Cons-Some parts of the game were a bit difficult
Excerpt: Ubisoft’s Beyond Good and Evil is a breath of fresh air for the dying Action-RPG Genre. In a world of Zelda clones, Beyond Good and Evil really sticks out with it’s stylish appearance, interesting although annoying characters, and unique concept.
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: Beyond Good and Evil is the latest game from Rayman creator, Michel Ancel. However, the game has little in common with the limbless platform star's games, as Beyond Good and Evil is an Action-Adventure game similar to Zelda. The game's story follows the adventures of Jade, a young woman who is a photographer on the planet Hillys.
Excerpt: The truth is out there somewhere… Before I start this review, I want to allow you to think back to a time where games weren’t all about running in and shooting as many bad guys as possible and then moving to the next area and repeating this. Games weren’t about moving from village to village, slaying fantasy creatures and taking quests to get more gold and level up your character so that you can get more quests and continue this cycle.
Pros: Great story & characters, some truly original and well integrated gameplay elements, fantastic soundtrack.
Cons: A couple of extra levels would have been nice, but I’m grasping at straws to find anything.
