LTTP or ‘late to the party’ pieces are opportunities for me to catch up and write about games I missed out on the first time around. They may contain spoilers.
I didn’t get the fervour around the Beyond Good & Evil 2 teaser. What was the significance of that pig? I’ve heard the title “Beyond Good & Evil” before and I knew it was a PlayStation 2 era title. I also recognize that it was a cult classic but it’s one of the rare titles that I drew a blank on; I had no idea what it was about and kept it that way. For whatever reason, I trusted the opinions of the masses.
I figured Beyond Good & Evil HD was the ideal way to check out the cult classic. I picked it up when it was discounted a few years ago but I sat on it for years. Now as the sixth console generation winds down, I decided to clear out the digital back log and finally play it.
I’m not sure why I waited so long because Beyond Good & Evil is fantastic. It was a pleasant surprise and I’m ashamed for sitting on it for so long. Thankfully the game held up so well, waiting an extra year or so didn’t hurt it one bit.
