Summary: This game seems more challenging than the Rayman Legends for Playstation Vita or the Wii U. I am still trying to figure out how to get to the next level with this one. It is still fun to play it though. I love Rayman.
Summary: This game got a lot of great reviews so I bought it for my children ranging from 7-12 yrs. old and they all said it was a really hard game and could barely get past the first couple of levels...and there are no save points through the level so it makes it extra difficult, Game has been sitting on the shelf now since the second day we got it.
Summary: It's a port of Rayman 2. The masterpiece just doesn't work on DS. The controls aren't bad, but moving is the huge pain. You can only go in four directions at first, then you can turn. Another problem is the camera. It can trick you into going the wrong way, which it did to me many times. The graphics kind of die in the DS version and make many flaws. Plus the original soundtrack isn't there... Not a bad game, but too many flaws.
A great game IF you didn't already beat The Great Escape

Summary: I didn't give the game a high rating in the "fun" category because I had expected this to be a new Rayman game and I was really excited because I'm a huge Rayman fan. However, this is not a new game, but rather a DS adaptation of Rayman 2: The Great Escape. IF you haven't already beaten that game OR simply can't get enough of it, then the game is indeed pretty wonderful. BUT, if you're expecting something new like I was, then you're sure to be disappointed.
Summary: Rayman is one of those games that came out as fairly inconsequential, but has aged very, very well. I bought the game on the N64 back in 2002 and really liked it. It sort of reminded me of mix between Super Mario 64 and Crash Bandicoot. It was like Crash because of the linear nature of the levels. Though some exploration is encouraged, it overall is a set path throughout the game.
Summary: When Rayman uses the flying walking shell, you crash all the time. You can't avoid it, as it's the only way to get to the next 'place'. I haven't been able to master it yet so I'm stuck - this is the only frustrating bit, I enjoy the rest...so, until I figure it out I can only give a four star rating. I have to say that the underwater places are fantastic.
