Hmmm...I know I said I couldn't decide between Beast 1 + 3, but I also liked Beast 2 too.
I only discounted Beast 2 because the difficulty seemed way too high. But yes, the art, the intro and the music was fantastic.
Beast 1 was hard too, but more...arcade style hard, if you know what I mean. It didn't trap you into an impossible area like Beast 2 sometimes did.
I like Beast 3 too, but the puzzles always stumped me.
Then again, I've never been one for puzzles in games- I like action better.
So now you see my dilemma, and why I started this thread.
I like (and dislike) aspects of all three games.
Still, a great trilogy IMHO. I am also very jealous of the artist's drawing style- it's very moody and evocative, yet also abit twisted and surreal. I love it. I wish I could draw like that.
