Product Description

In Beyond Good & Evil a puzzle action adventure, the vast, peaceful planet of Hyllis has fallen under siege by a relentless alien race. After a desperate struggle to defend her island, a Hyllian named Jade collapses in exhaustion--only to be tormented by disturbing visions. Despite public assurances that the planet has been secured, Jade begins to suspect that there's more to these invasions than the government has disclosed. When a rebel organization reinforces her doubts, Jade begins a harrowing journey to get to the core of the conspiracy.

Armed with her camera, aikido staff, and resolute investigative skills, Jade sets out to expose the truth and to liberate the minds of her deceived people. Pushed to the very edge of her physical and spiritual will, she soon discovers that even these limits are not what they seem... Her quest for the truth knows no bounds.

This game has a great story and an emmersive universe to dive into. I loved the graphics and the wonderful characters - great sound also.
The problem is the gameplay - a standard mix of "thrilling situations" - mostly constituted by the gamer's ability to press buttons rather than something else. Also the mix between free camera and fixed camera had me very frustrated at times.
It seems to want to appeal to other than regular gamers, but in reality it's just an action game - same old, same old..
It certainly had great possibilities in the story line and game world etc, I just wish the game developers would have done something else with the gameplay, than the 'small boss. medium boss, big boss'-model & 'button-athletics'..
So 2 stars for graphics & story - and for gameplay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Story! Character! Genius! 16 April 2004
Platform for Display:PC
I hate to see reviews on here from people who say "this game is released in two months but its bound to be great...5 stars!", at least ive played this game...but im only about 4 hours in! but i had to review it because its been totally missed by the pc crowd, and to a lesser extent, the console lovers too! Its a third person action/adventure that will remind you of the N64 zelda games, lucas arts point and click games and also rares highly acclaimed jet force jemini and banjo and kazooie. Ok, i used to love console games. The thing is that the pc games market is moving ever onward with a multi player slant. All you are generally required to do is shoot anything that moves at one end of the market or wade through pages of rpg menus at the other end. These cross genre games dont really go down well on the pc. Shame! Cos while you were all hiding in this years foliage dodging 56 other caffeine addled real people i was enjoying a story telling experience. Quality oozes from every pore of this game. Yes its french but the french slant on these things seems to be getting closer and closer to the japanese idea of a good game. And the japanese love to be entertained. I wont go in to the ins and outs of the structure/story..in short you are jade, world being invaded, you have a lighthouse full of orphans, you have to catalogue the worlds animal population with your trusty camera to make money, theres a conspiracy (of course), tons of things to collect, your uncle is a pig!, you zip around the world in a hovercraft purchasing upgrades to both yourself and vehicle, the graphics are lush * dont install the patch unless you already have problems!!! It'll bugger your game up! Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and inspired 7 Feb 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the best PC game I've ever played (and I've played a few). My daughters are so taken with it that, at their request, I've bought spare copies for when they're grown up!
It is beautiful and atmospheric (the music's an excellent match for the game) with a variety of combat action, stealth, collecting pretty pearls, racing, taking pictures of nature - fabulous! The story line is compelling and there's plenty of humour.
Just in case it's relevant to anyone else's experience, I was a bit confused with the opening scenes, having to do combat with little understanding of the controls, but please don't be put off, because it's not too difficult and after this it's an absolute dream of a game.

I have just finished playing Beyond Good and Evil for the second time. I have to say it is probably one of the most enjoyable PC games I have ever played!

In my opinion the game has an ideal balance between combat and stealth and there are a few head-scratching problems but none that are too difficult to work out! Although the graphics are slightly dated now this really doesn't detract at all from game play. The characters are lively, the game creates a real sense of urgency and peril and even the cut-scenes and dialogue are quite enjoyable!

My only criticism is that there were a few 'timed runs' across obstacle courses which were VERY difficult and it can become very frustrating as there is no 'Quick Save' option - you have to reach a designated post before you can save the game. Also the final boss was a little bit infuriating and only after referring to the online walk-through was I able to defeat it. I have no idea how people could succeed in this game without having a peek at the walk-through to be honest!

Overall a thoroughly enjoyable game and I honestly cannot wait for the sequel!
