3rd person story driven adventure game - wow how on earth did i not play this when i was younger. so glad i picked it up as it still holds up to this day. some sections will annoy you (some camera angles for sure) but overall a lovable game that i wish they would do a sequel to. Also capsule is easy to download, install, and play on.
Beyond Good and Evil is one of those games that everyone should play, it's a beautiful experience and incredibly enjoyable. The game is a mix of stealth, action, adventure and exploration with various gameplay elements and sequences that mesh perfectly. Personally, I enjoyed the adventure and exploration parts the most, the world feels vibrant and full of life, the setting is just awesome. The gameplay is accompanied by an engaging story filled with great dialogue and likeable characters, it's truly excellent and keeps you going until the very end. The plot is all about twists and conspiracies, truths and lies, it does sound a bit cliché but it's unforgettable. The graphics and sound are well produced and fit together with the atmosphere of the game. This is one game that is hard to dislike, I can barely find anything faulty with it and I recommend everyone to try this game out, don't be alarmed by the outdated visuals, just sit back and enjoy.
Really a forgotten gem that deserves much more. This game contains some of the most touching scenes in video game history, the story, the caracters and even the gameplay is something you'll never forget. You control an uprising young journalist (Jade) and your main mission in this game is to uncover an evil organization. While this sounds simple, it'sreally not, the gameplay consists of action and stealth parts, photojournalism, hovercraft races and there are also some interesting minigames. A complex action-adventure game that you shouldn't miss!
This game is a rarity. It defies many game stereo types without being something so far out there and strange that no one wants to play it. The main character is a female who actually wears clothes and is a living breathing character with depth, motives and her own perspective. Not, like many video game female characters, who are created to be saved or gawked at. The others characters are also fantastic. The game has a lot of variety and all the attempted game mechanics work well for the most part. A very well written story that is in some ways parallel to current events and different views of events that we see today. The art style is fantastic making you look past polygons. I recommend it highly.
This game is trully a must have for everyone who loves adventure game. Don't worry, the graphics are still good today and the game still looks gorgeous ! The game is mostly based on infiltration as you play a young reporter who tries to find out what happen on her planet. I think everyone should play it at least once as this is a game which didn't get old at all. I think it totally worth it price even after all this years.
