ARS: Beyond Good and Evil is a game that everyone seems to love now, although next to no one bought it upon its release. The cult favorite is getting a second chance on the Xbox Live Arcade next month, and the preview given to press during CES got high marks.
Beyond Good and Evil told the story of Jade, a photojournalist who exposes a vast conspiracy with her friend, a humanoid pig named Pey'j. The third-person play was top-notch, and the characters, the world they inhabit, and the way the story unfolds were far above what most games were capable of when it was released on the GameCube, PS2, and PC. The game failed to find an audience, but with improved buzz and a graphical overhaul, it now has the opportunity to find a more receptive public.
