 THE STORY

(as presented on the Ubisoft BGAE website:)

 

 


The vast, peaceful planet of Hillys has fallen under siege by a relentless alien race.

Despite public assurances that the planet has been secured, Jade begins to suspect that there's more to these invasions than the government has disclosed. When a rebel organization reinforces her doubts, Jade begins a harrowing journey to get to the core of the conspiracy.

Armed with her camera, dai-jo stick, and resolute investigative skills, Jade sets out to expose the truth and to liberate the minds of her deceived people. Pushed to the very edge of her physical and spiritual will, she soon discovers that even those limits are not what they seem…

 

Personal comments:

What I like about the game:

bullet

A good and engaging story line, with a believable main character.
 

bullet

A wide variety of different game types all in one package:
bulletaction - adventure - detective, but also races, a bar game, arcade...
bulletExtra nice is that this variety is to a large degree optional. 
bulletYou don't have to do them all to complete the main story.
bulletThat way the variety remains a challenge, without ever becoming a frustration.

bullet

Beautiful graphics, at the very high-end at the time of release (2003) .
 

bullet

Beautiful music, that supports the gaming action extremely well.


What I don't like about the game:

bullet

It is impossible to skip the cutscenes. 
bulletThat is of course not an issue the first time, but with repeat play it gets to be annoying.
 

bulletThe PC version does not support gamepad control. 
For a game that has been released on all the major gaming platforms before it ever came to PC, that seems very weird. 
bulletIn several scenes where the camera angle locks in a diagonal position, keyboard control is downright awkward.
bulletI find it impossible to play the Yo-Pearl game  with keyboard controls.
 
bulletThe game was apparently released  to PC without enough testing:
bulletmany bugs, many compatibility problems.
 
bulletLack of commitment by Ubisoft to address those issues, once the game was released.

In conclusion:

bulletA game worth playing, and occasionally replaying, if you can get over and past the bugs.
