Beyond Good and Evil by Ubisoft was one of the biggest criminal flops of the last generation.

I'm not going to give it blind praise, I always thought it was flawed (some terrible sign-posting, those 'lovable' characters. One man's lovable is another's annoyance).
But the games is a masterclass of creativity and feels beautifully and unusually European. A French cartoon personified.

It's only 800 points on XBLA and seriously worth a look for the price of a couple of pints.

Why in the help section Ugly? Because a sequel has always been rumoured (even as far as a reveal trailer at E3 a couple of years ago, to hoots of delight from the gaming press).

So, no doubt Ubisoft will be looking at how well this sells before steaming ahead.

Do it! 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-)

I couldn't agree more. For 800msp there's no reason not to buy it! First thing I did when I got in from work last night! I'd love to see a sequel, I hope they build on the whole 'reporting' thing. I love that aspect.

Um, I already have the PC version, which I still haven't finished... and I don't really buy stuff on XBLA...but I do want them to make a sequel...oh man.

I just completed it last night for the first time. I really enjoyed playing it through, didn't realise how far I'd got when I first had it but it all came back as I went through. Really hope they make a sequel, if it had a big city and AC style freeroaming (as is rumoured) then that would be amazing.

I keep on getting stuck at stoopidness.

I'm in the factory,
Spoiler:
released the prisoner and he goes his own way
.

I shoot a rat off a fan, open a door go in and get the two fuses and now not a clue what I should be doing :roll:

You have to place one of the fuses in the central lift. Then Pey'j will fix it for you so you can travel to the other levels! The other fuse you don't use till right at the end. It's good you picked them both up, I missed the 2nd as I was content with the one. Had to go all the way back when I was stuck at the end!

It was a blonde moment :oops:

If I had bothered to open my menu and look at the objectives I would have seen. I sussed it last night.

Move along now, nothing to see here :-|
