Excerpt: Once upon a time, the Rayman series of video games were held in very high esteem. The PSOne edition sold millions upon millions of copies and did especially well as a ”Platinum” re-release. As far as I’m aware, the original game holds the record for the most weeks in the ELSPA top 20 PSOne chart – and with good reason. The limbless one’s 3D outings however, have arguably not been anywhere near as sharp.
Excerpt: If you played Rayman 2 a few years back when it appeared on the then current generation of consoles, then Rayman DS will be quite familiar to you. This is because Rayman DS is basically a port of that game – a successful platform game turned mobile now that portable hardware has caught up to the previous generation of home systems in terms of power.
Summary: Prince of Persia isn't the only Ubisoft franchise getting a darker makeover.
Pros: Adorable characters with loveable gibberish talk, Quality textures for a DS game, Some very memorable levels
Cons: Certain levels rely too heavily on "try, try, and try again", Clumsy camera controls with the occasional horrible fixed angle, Loading screens?!, Mostly-boring music, You shouldn't have to strain to see the screen
Excerpt: But back in 2004, when the Nintendo DS was still young, Nintendo put out a little known and little embraced platformer that was a port of an original platformer from the SNES called Rayman DS. This game, originally entitled Rayman : The Great Escape for the SNES, was a underwhelming game that people seemed to ignore… and yet proved to be some fun for the Nintendo DS!

Als wie gut sich die technische Umsetzung herausstellt, ob die Steuerung gelungen ist und natürlich, ob der Spielspaß erhalten geblieben ist, kann man in diesem Review erfahren.
