Beyond Good & Evil has been more known for being the biggest flop of 2003 than for what it is, a great game. I've finally been able to extensively play it and I'm more than surprised, this game is great ! Video and impressions in the news...
BG&E is not your typical game, graphically especially it's very original. Some have said it's the "French Touch" ambassador, perhaps they are right.
Graphically even if it does not use any of the Xbox adavances capabilities the game is really beautiful and different. The pastel colors and the really original character design help setting a very nice atmosphere. The level design is also very good.
The sound is also very nice. Good music, excellent dub (french or english). The sound effects are good but they do not stand out.
The gameplay itself has been designed to be easy to master. The fights are rather simple, as are the puzzles. You almost never feel lost or blocked. There are a lot of different gameplay types, fights, overcraft, platform and adventure, and they all blend perfectly.
The only downside of the game is that it's only 10 hours or so long. It's not much for such a game, but considering it's very cheap now it's not a problem anymore.
In conclusion : Go buy it ! It's an excellent and beautiful game, with nice characters and gameplay. And it's cheap !
I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (5 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (5 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (6 Hours ago)
@droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (6 Hours ago)
If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (7 Hours ago)
@Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (7 Hours ago)
Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (7 Hours ago)
