If you don't own this game yet, you are a goddamn communist.

I played it on PS2. The remake got a 9 on eurogamer, seems to hold up very well.
Currently playing: Uncharted 3, Dark Souls, Team ICO Collection, Atelier Totori, Child of eden.

I have it on disc for the GameCube, but I think that this release really is a dipstick for Ubisoft to see if it's worthwhile to continue development on BG&E2.  So I buyed it.

I loved it way back when on the Gamecube. I have no time to play games more than once, so I won't buy it, but I encourage anyone who hasn't played it to do so. Good stuff.

I have the Gamecube version, but I bought it when I moved on the the next generation of consoles and never finished it, so I bought this version. I love everything about it except I wish they would have fixed the camera angle issues. But I know it is just an HD remake and it is only a small complaint to an otherwise almost perfect game.

Bought it on the PS2 back when it first came out. Don't see any reason to buy it again. Was a great game though.

I saw the quick look of this game in GiantBomb, and for some reason this reminds of Rayman 2 (which is a very good thing in my book). I've never read something bad about the game either and there's good music too. So, maybe in a couple of months with any luck I'll buy this.

There's already too much to look forward to.

Michel Ancel, the mind behind BG&E, created Rayman.

So there you go!

I already have it on the PS2, but I'm sure I'll get the HD version soon enough.

Man, I don't remember the camera being quite so finicky.

I'm not a soundtrack guy. You can read my reviews, ask my fellow RPGFan staff members, I'm really not much for noticing music in games unless it's awesome.

Playing BG&E again, I forgot just how freaking fantastic the music in this game is.

Had it for GameCube, one of the better games of that generation IMO.

I personally can't stand the music after I hear it twice. At least the stuff they play in the races and in the bar. Nothing really stuck out to me besides that stuff. It's too pop and too repetative for me to love it.
I will say this, as annoying as the music is to me, it seriously gets stuck in my head.

Man, this was an amazing game that actually managed to go from cartoony happy to creepy. Whatever happened to the second one? I think I saw a trailer for it years ago.
