Summary: This game is great, I had trouble finding it in stores in my area. When it arrived it was in great condition with no scratches or anything, and for a few bucks, you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal.
Summary: I've played quite a lot of games over the years, and I came upon this one. I found it as a PC Demo, and played it... My PC of course, at the time, would not play it because my PC wasn't good enough.
Summary: This game is an action rpg type of game. The controls are fairly simple, and so is the combat. You can do a super charge attack, and you can whack the enemies. There aren't any cool spells or summons or things like that, and you can't use much technique in battles.
Summary: I enjoy RPGs quite a bit and was especially excited to catch up on Beyond Good and Evil this summer. However, I found the game to be pretty tedious with missions that were often repetitive and boring.
Summary: The setting of a distant colony occupied by a protective force of "elite" military units against an alien invasion was established cleanly, the characters all portrayed at some depth, and the twists in what's really the truth aren't complete surprises but are fairly well executed.
Summary: Ubisoft's 2003 release of Beyond Good and Evil went by without much spectacle. I myself didn't hear about it until a few years afterward, references to it as being a great sleeper hit. And it wasn't until 2008 that I got around to playing it.
Summary: Good story. Fun gameplay. Not a "kill everything in sight" game. Which to me is refreshing. There are a few layers to each mission. One is to advance the overall storyline, the other is to take pictures of animals/creatures to earn money. The third is to unearth pearls to beef up your vehicles.
Summary: Beyond Good & Evil is a rare game which attempts to do almost everything and succeeds. It's by and large the most fun I've had playing a PS2 game in the entire time I've owned the system, right up there with Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando.
