    Nothing short of spectacular!

    Beyond Good and Evil is nothing short of one of the best games ever designed. It's a masterpiece from the creator of Rayman and his merry band of creative geniuses. Ironically, this game went unnoticed, despite critical ... Read Full Review

    'Nice' game who's childlike outlook belies the seriousness hidden underneath.

    I am one of a growing (slowly) group of people who have found this game and realize what a hidden treasure it is. Unique gameplay, outstanding sound, top notch graphics, and get this, a story worth paying attention to. ... Read Full Review

    This is fun game which can be both rewarding and frustrating at the same time. The controls on the PC version can be rather clunky at times, but the great graphics, sound and story makes up for it in the long run. You ... Read Full Review

    Fun lighthearted action/adventure game with emphasis on adventure

    This game is a fun, lighthearted action/adventure game with the emphasis on adventure (which is a good thing). The voice acting in many cases is hilarious (my son, a 4 year old, now walks around the house saying "Not me... Read Full Review

    With a cast of characters you won't soon forget and a simple but effective story this is a pleasant little game.

    Having read several reviews and picked up and put down this title on several occasions I didn't expect much from Beyond Good and Evil and was pleasantly surprised from beginning to end. With a storyline that keeps you gr... Read Full Review
