Beyond Good & Evil is a small masterpiece of game design. Rayman father Michel Ancel strips off his playful platforming past and present himself as a storyteller first order. We'll tell you why the thrilling adventure has not only deserves an award, but also an Oscar for best director and best screenplay!
Beyond Good & Evil tells the story of Jade, a freelance photographer and protector of children who have orphaned due to the Domz. The Domz are a brutal alien race who are currently invading the planet aqueous Hillys, locked in a fierce battle with humanity protectors, the Alpha Sections.

Beyond Good & Evil puts you in the role of Jade, a young woman who, along with her humanoid pig uncle, Pey'j, runs a lighthouse on the planet Hillys.
Hillys is at war with an alien force known as the DomZ, and an elite squadron known as the Alpha Sections protects Hillys from the alien threat.
Or does it? An underground rebel organization known as the IRIS Network charges that the Alphas control both sides of the equation. IRIS is essentially a rogue news network, informing the people via a newsletter that strives to expose the link between Hillys' protectors and the alien menace.
That's where Jade, a photographer-for-hire when not tending to the lighthouse, comes in. You quickly hook up with IRIS and spend the bulk of the game infiltrating Alpha strongholds, camera at your side, in search of the truth.

First, Beyond Good & Evil does not feel it has aged well. The fight is a simple one-button affair. The game environment is divided into very small areas separated by loading screens.
The act of saving their own game requires unnecessary animations and middle-man menus. However, the more open the game, the more returns the old magic.
Puzzles are spot-on, if a little obtuse at times, and the combat still manages to be fun thanks to the special attacks of Pey'j and Double H, and the surprising depth of strategy that can occur during boss fights.
And there are multiple bonus objectives and mini-games, should you fancy a break from the main story. From air hockey in alien bars to hovercraft races and ongoing wildlife photography assignments, this is a game with no shortage of things to do.
Deeper into the actual mechanics of the game, not everything has aged so gracefully. The camera is a particularly fractious beast, requiring constant attention in confined areas and becoming a real problem during the game's well-intentioned but frustratingly woolly stealth sections.

While the game behind the presentation is pretty good on its own, the entire package benefits from some pretty stellar audio and video.
The game is graphically impressive. The world of Hillys is beautifully rendered. It's large and atmospheric, and the outdoor segments show off some nice-looking water. The interior of the buildings you'll be infiltrating are appropriately dark and intimidating, with a hefty dose of effective lighting.
An easy way to suck some of the immersion out of a game is with wooden, generic animation and character models. But the animation and character models are perhaps Beyond Good & Evil's strongest aspect. The game's story gets emotional in spots, and you can see Jade emoting very effectively throughout the game.
Quality voice acting really drives the point home, and here, too, BG&E excels. The voice cast is, for the most part, great, and the various voices match up with their characters very well.
The game's music also does a great job of setting the tone, particularly some of the alien-sounding songs that can be heard while in and around town.

Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding it back. Feels as good to play now as it did eight years ago. While not the narrative tour de force you may recall it being, the game manages to draw one in and keep the player involved with a charming game world and a strong, atypical female protagonist. Beyond Good & Evil is a fantastic-looking game that tells its story well.

Score: 82 / 100

This game is absolutely magnificent. It's a puzzle-adventurer, very akin to The Legend of Zelda. A lot of the mechanics revolve around sneaking and not being detected.

You take the role of a girl named Jade, living on a planet that's beginning to be overrun with aliens. She is hired as a reporter for a rogue organization to spy on the government, as many people think the government and the aliens are in cahoots. There are moments that'll make you cry and leave you on-edge. Jade is a great protagonist, and you'll come to love every character. The graphics are a little dated (the game was originally on PS2, GCN and Xbox, so the resolution is pretty bad and there are quite a few graphical glitches.) The game makes up for this though, with amazing soundtrack, great story and thrilling gameplay. You'll definitely feel like a spy playing this game!
I give this game a 9/10 (if it weren't for graphical glitches and sometimes monotonous battle system, it'd definitely get a 10/10)

*THIS DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY ON WIN8* (I have tried every alternative, through suggestions from Steam and Google)

-Glitches (alpha/transparent flickering. Even if you use the fixes, you'll notice other glitches down the track)
-Audio Sync Issues (not resolved with the affinity fix)
-Menu/UI/Text (not always an issue with the main menu, but ingame no text = no understanding on the spiral menu, especially first timers)
-Will mention your graphics are outdated everytime you run this game.

Now I don't promote illegal activities, but I certainly understand some of the posts I'd read in regards to trying this out on the GameCube. This is one game I wish I'd played during it's prime. It looks like so much fun when you watch gameplay videos.

Fingers crossed for that HD version coming to PC hey fellas?

First of all, I love this game. Beyond Good & Evil is great.
But DO NOT buy this game for the pc. It is an insult that Ubisoft/Steam would release and sell this.
As it stands it does not appear to support widescreen, controllers, and it is a bit on the finiky side with new technology.
There may be some fixes out there for it, but it is still unacceptable to release a game in this state.

Hopefully Steam will release an update or a fixed version in the future, but as of now in its current condition I would avoid.

A game that is still as good as it was when it came in 2003. Maybe even better because today it's a classic.

A young woman Jade and her uncle, a boar like creature, Pey'j live in a lighthouse along with orphans whom they take care of. In the planet Hillys were they live, a war with an alien species called DomZ has raged on for many years. Ruining lives and landscape the war has taken it's toll on everybody. Despite a military organization Alpha Sections' reassurence that they will protect the citizens and push back the DomZ, everything has stayed the same. With a mission Jade receives she gets a chance to stop the war with a help of the IRIS Network, an underground rebel organization.

Beyond Good & Evil's gameplay varies and it basically has everything. Puzzle solving, combat, stealth, photographing species, adventuring and exploring, optional racing and mini games. And here's the secret: Every piece of the game, be it big or small, is enjoyable and doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. Nothing seems tedious or annoying to do. Even if combat is pretty much just smashing one button it doesn't feel repetitive. Stealth is needed to take out enemies with more power than you. Puzzles are mostly figuring out how to get somewhere but it doesn't feel like they are showed down our throats. Photographing little creatures in the planet is a lovely little add.

And you just gotta love the characters! I'm not much of a fan of women in games but Jade has a great personality and is very brave. Pey'j on the other hand is the kind of uncle I would like to have myself. Double H is a soldier and has strong sense of justice and is very loyal.

For such a great game I would have loved it to be longer. Especially because after playing it through many questions are left unanswered. Also the gameplay is really good but the "sometimes wacky" camera angles can lower your good mood.

Still waiting for that sequel though!

+ The graphics have remained in a good condition for such an old game
+ Lovable characters
+ Combination of everything: adventure, combat, puzzles, photographing, stealth etc
+ The beginning battle has to be in the top 10 of the most epic moments of gaming
+ The music
- A little short for such a great game
- The plot leaves more explanation to desire
- Camera can sometimes be a huge pain in the butt

One of the best games I've ever played! The story is amazing, the characters are heartwarming, funny and it's just so much fun to get through the game. Just let me say, it actually never gets boring to play that game. And it's impossible to NOT like the characters! If you are interested in good stories, neat graphics (yeah, this game is pretty old, but the graphics are also a + for the game okay!) and funny quotes as well as some good old fighting moments, then you'll have a lot of fun with that game. I also like the environment and the slighty futuristic touch in the game! :-)

It's been about 10 years since I first started playing Beyond Good & Evil and to this /day/ I still listen to the soundtrack pretty regularly. I still look at the game play and the characters with great fondness. And I still hold my breath for the day that there might be a sequel made; one that's true to the original, at that. There aren't... words enough to express how much I love this game. Just play it; you won't be sorry.

Beyond Good and Evil is one of my favorite games of all time. I jumped in not expecting much, but you gain an attachment to each of the characters and the action just blows you away. It has both combat and stealth sections, plenty of interesting puzzles, and hundreds of collectables to keep you playing. Cant wait for the second game to continue this epic saga.

So why don't you own this game already? I mean seriously!? This is a wonderful action platformer with some fun stealth elements spliced together ina world full of wonder and conspiracy! It may not be the LONGEST game in the world and could def have been a few more hours but you feel satisfied when you complete it. Side missions are actually really fun and diverse and a cool plot with twists and turns. Buy it now... DO IT!

This is a great game. Strong female lead, love the stealth and photography mechanics, great story, wonderful characters. BEWARE THE PARTNER GLITCH. At certain points in the game, your tag along pal might glitch out. Rotate your saves, and DO NOT SAVE WHILE YOU ARE ALONE, because you can't get the tag along back, and you need them for progression. If at any point when you have a partner you notice them missing, reload a previous save. Other than that one minor problem, Beyond Good and Evil is an amazing game, and I'm very sad a sequel will probably never happen. ;_;

An action adventure game where the main focus is stealth and photography. AKA, you get to be a secret agent in a sort of steampunk-ish fantasy world under an oppressive regime, who can't fight well and has to primarily avoid combat in favour of gathering actual evidence of corruption and abuse. Roll that in with an amazing female protagonist, you have one of the best games ever made.

This game is probably mostly known for its charm. I enjoyed it a lot when it came out, many years ago, and I bought it on Steam last time it was on sale. Although I've had to deal with several technical issues, I'm still glad I got in my library, and I look forward to a second playthrough.

I don't know who I would recommend this game to, other than old fans... However, it was very well regarded when it came out, and it still has its charm. Maybe it's a good idea to check out some gameplay clips and cutscenes before you buy it.
