The lights are on
I can't stand to see what the industry has turned into as of late. It is a pool of shooters and action games that try and be way to serious and way to realistic for their own good. Every once in a while we get something truly unique, but not often enough. Beyond Good & Evil is exactly the type of game this industry needs more of. A pure blend of many different genres that feels as polished as you could ever hope.
It is the type of game that you will remember for a long time after you are done playing. You may not remember it simply because of how good it is, but more likely because of how these types of games simply don't get made anymore. The variety on offer here is something that has been dropped from most games who seek to only supply you with one genre and one genre only.
So, when you find yourself in your local game store, and you happen to notice the flood of shooters everywhere you look (Killzone 3, Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, Homefront all releasing within two months of eachother) just remember that Beyond Good & Evil an amazing game for $10 that you can be playing right now. And by buying it you are showing support for more unique and original games in this industry, and letting publishers know that we want more than just shooters in our Xbox 360 and PS3's.
