Beyond Good & Evil was an action-adventure video game released on the Xbox, GameCube, PS2 and the PC in late 2003. It was critically acclaimed by reviewers, but sadly it didnt sell very well. But now you have the chance to experience it all its HD glory!
Special note on collectibles:
There are more collectibles in the game than what you need for the achievements. There are more animals to photograph, more pearls to collect and more hearts available than the amount required in the achievement. So don't stress if you miss one or even if you forget to photograph one of the bosses. That being said, pay attention and try not to miss too many animal photographs when you run through the game as they may not be around when you come back.
You only need 80/88 pearls, 48/56 animal photos, 11/14 MDisks and 10/13 PA1 units. You have margin for error in case some animals don't show up when you come back or your game crashes repeatedly when fighting one of the optional bosses.
Step One: The story to the point of no return
Like most Adventure games, there is a big world in front of you, but certain areas are locked until you get an upgrade or new weapon. So you can pretty much go back to any area that you have previously missed. This doesn't mean you can come back after finishing the game, though.
Do not go to the moon before finishing everything else. The game warns you about this. As you are running through the game, it would be wise to purchase the Pearl Detector and Animal Detector as soon as possible or follow the collectible guides linked above. Partly because you need a lot of pearls to upgrade your vehicle, partly because some animals are missable and partly because the hearts will make the game way easier. The game isn't that difficult, but you can make it way easier my exploring.
Kicking *** is debatably missable. It's has been listed as not missable here because you would have to actively try to miss it and in doing so would miss a fair number of collectibles. There are far more than 10 enemies in your path that you will need to dispatch.
Step Two: Mop Up
Before you go to the moon, make sure you have gotten every other achievement aside from Project Apollo and Beyond Good and Evil. You may have already gotten the gambling mini games and the looters done while going through the game, since they are a good way to get pearls to upgrade your vehicle. That means, go back and look for animals that you have missed, find pearls and collect the Physiological Accelerators that you need for any achievements that you don't have yet. Again, don't worry about getting every collectible, since you don't need them all for the achievements.
Step Three: To the Moon!
Once you have the collectible achievements knocked out and only have the final two achievements left, it's time to head to the moon and finish the game. The whole section on the Moon doesn't take that long, but you can't go back once you're there unless you revert to an earlier save file. After you finish it off, you will have your completion.
Its a pretty easy game to 100% and no real difficulties are involved as long as you use this guide. Its also one of the best games from the last generation so enjoy!
And of course, are you as awesome as Capn Doug?
