Beyond Good and Evil is one of the most beautiful, amazing and original games the humanity has ever seen.
Thanks to it's particular and charming design the game has aged like fine wine(*). While it was released in 2003 it has nothing to envy to current indies or more "aesthetic" games. It drives one of the most amazing an beautifully written stories I've ever seen, it's an amazing and original open world adventure game that will keep you hooked for hours.
*While the games is amazing, the port doesn't play too well in post Windows XP machines without some tweaking. When you launch the game, you will be presented with a Settings window (you can found the settings executable in your Steam libradry folder \steamapps\common\Beyond Good and Evil\SettingsApplication.exe), go to Advance Settings and in the Compability menu check "Manual Compatibily Settings" so you can manage the rest of the settings and uncheck the following options:
- HW Vertex Processing
- Multi vertex stream
- W Buffer
