Beyond Good & Evil is an action-adventure game with elements of puzzle-solving and stealth-based games. Players control the protagonist, Jade, from a third-person perspective. Jade can run, move stealthily, jump over obstacles and pits, climb ladders, push or bash in doors and objects, and flatten herself against walls. As Jade, players investigate installations in search of the truth about a war with an alien threat.

In the game's interior spaces, players solve puzzles and make their way past enemies in order to reach areas containing photographic evidence. Jade's main tools are her Daï-jo combat staff (a melee weapon) discs for attacking at range and a camera. Jade's health decreases when attacked by enemies, and health can be restored by using fictional food items "Starkos" and "K-Bups".

At times, it is only possible to advance in the game with the help of other characters. The characters are computer-controlled, and players direct them via contextual commands. For example, the player can order them to perform a "super attack", either pounding the ground to bounce enemies into the air, allowing the player to hit them from long distances, or knocking them off balance, making them vulnerable to attack. These allies also possess a health bar and are incapacitated if their health is depleted.

In addition to obtaining evidence and completing assignments, Jade's camera can be used to take pictures of animal species in exchange for currency and scan objects to reveal more information about the environment. When the "Gyrodisk Glove" is obtained, Jade can attack enemies or activate devices from a distance using the camera interface.

A hovercraft is used to travel around the world, and also used for racing and in other minigames. Later, spaceship Beluga is acquired. The hovercraft can park on board the spaceship. Both vehicles require upgrades in order to reach new areas and progress through the game. Upgrades are purchased using pearls that are collected throughout the game. The vehicles have a boost ability, and can be repaired using a "Repair Pod" if damaged by enemies.

The main city serves as a hub, allowing the player access to the various areas that must be explored in order to expose the conspiracy.

Problems

Main stick

Main stick emulation don't work good in start menu. Get only 45 angle precision. Need twice more precision (45/2=22.5)

Frame Rate

This game seems to throttle to 120 FPS and to set it to 60 FPS like most other GameCube games you must enable XFB. Though this won't do much, since the 120 FPS are based on increments of 2 and never goes to an odd number, thus its basically 60 FPS on its own. High system requirements are definately needed to play at close to full speed.
