So if it's $9.99 in store you could get it for $5!

If no one has it yet there is no excuse not to buy it now.

Which means half the excuses of why people don't own it yet.

You should play a few more games. I'm not saying BG&E is bad (far from it), but Gamepro did include BG&E in their top ten list of "most overrated games" in their 200th anniversary issue last month for a reason. There are plenty of better games out there.

I think I stopped paying attention to this post when I saw that you were apparently treating Gamepro as a legitimate source of opinions and/or information. :D

It is a good game, but I passed on this b/c I already have the XBOX version.

I never said Gamepro was legitimate. :D I just mentioned that this particular print rag felt BG&E was worthy of mention in the 200th anniversary issue. You can decide for yourself whether or not it means anything. (I have faith in you to do this.) :D

So true. I could think of 10 very over-rated games, Mario Sunshine, Eternal Darkness, FFX, FFX2, Pikmin. This is an under-rated game, one of the more so this gen. I also think it is one of the best games this gen, and probably the best multiplatform games this gen.

Man I need to find a GC version. I love this game so much and have the XBox and PS2 versions already. I agree with the statement that everyone should own this. What's up with the cover on Best Buys site, did it get a reprint or do they just have the wrong picture for some reason?

I don't think this game was under rated, as it got very good scores... It was just under hyped and not many non gamers know about it. Personally I would take FFX off your overated list because it is one of the better RPGs released for current gen systems. The other ones I agree with or haven't palyed.

True, but it was more than just that.

There were no ads for it, no one was gonig to spend $50 on a short game that might suck. So even before people hyped it the price was lowwered.

Big mistake, this could be like PoP, what a waste.

Everyone should own and play this game. There is so much variety and a great intergration of the story into the gameplay Astounded that gamepro called it overated, just one more reason to hate that magazine, I would love to see the rest of the list if anyone has a link.

Looks like they have an import cover for some reason. I haven't seen the Euro cover elsewhere but this may, in fact, be it.

I haven't actually played BG&E, but my in-laws played it and loved it, until they were stopped at the end by a game-screwing glitch. We tried everything to get past the glitch to no avail. This was the GC version BTW.

I want to play it at some point, but I don't want to go all the way through the game just to have it screw up at the end. BTW, they tried with two different copies of the game - it was something to do with the way the game saved a photograph that they took very early in the game.

I despised this game. A co-worker had raved about it so I picked it up, and made myself play through to the end just so he couldn't say "well, you stopped playing before X happens...". The first level or so was fun, and it went downhill after that. I also consider this game overrated because every message board I go to raves about it.

I always end my rants with this tho - so many people DO like the game, and it's so cheap that if you're interested go and decide for yourself. :-P

I have both... only thing I noticed is that the GameCube version loads -much- faster...

I own the X-Box version and love the game. I was in TRU yesterday and they had a lone copy of the PS2 version for $4.46. My girls are always getting invited to B-Day parties and this would make an excellent CHEAP gift! :) Check in your local TRU for any remaining copies for under $5.

Thanks to the original poster....I own the Xbox version but have been looking to buy the GC or PS2 version due to the smaller systems being a plus for me at my weekend job. The Xbox is such a drag to tote around!!! :)

Great game....it is a shame we will most likely never see a sequel due to sales for the game.
