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...
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).
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...

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.

Conclusion: And it is, apart from a few choice technical hiccups, a marvellous game. It's a game that exhibits real personality and individuality. Ironically it doesn't really do anything particularly ground-breaking, but whereas a lot of games recently have left us revelling in the quality of the mechanics and...
Conclusion: Mit Beyond Good & Evil bekommt man ein sehr gutes Action-Adventure geboten, mit Elementen aus vielen verschiedenen Genres und einer extra Portion Humor. Die geniale Story wird cineastisch präsentiert, was mit interaktiven Zwischensequenzen oder den schönen Slow-Motion Effekten verstärkt wird.
