Beyond Good & Evil (Ubisoft)
This is a very good game and one I overlooked. Released in November of 2003, I found it while searching Amazon recommendations. It was posted on the Wind Waker page as a similar game.
The game has excellent voice acting and superb music. It has some really unique gameplay while retaining traditional power ups and item functionality. That together makes for a very workable game. I’ll be posting a review as soon as I’m done so stay tuned.
If you’ve played it, feel free to comment your hearts out.
