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.
Summary: My wife and I just bought a DS and wanted to pick up some games. We found that Rayman DS was on sale for $12.00 and grabbed it. I was vaguely familiar with the character. The gameplay is pretty good. It is a little hard to control at times. Mostly when having to walk at a diagonal. My biggest complaint is the distance between save points. You have to complete an entire level or make your way back to the Hall of Doors to save.
Summary: I really liked Rayman,fun DS game but it had a problem with the controls.Since I don't like to use the touch screen as a controller(My fingerprints will ruin it)I am left with the directional pad and it is a bit unstable for controlling Rayman.(Caution:the screenshots on the back of the case were taken from the PS2 version of the game and don't mistake it for the DS's graphic power even though the in-game graphics are good,don't be fooled.
Summary: This game is easy, which is expected, sence it is a kid's game. I never had a problem with the game other than it was hard to control. The graphics are the same as the one in the playstation verson. I would recomend this to be a game to give to anyone that is about the age of 10 or so. I can't even figure out why anyone would have a back light problem sence there is a control to turn it on, not only in the DS but the game as well.
Summary: My little brother and I love the Rayman games, and we were sad to find out that our old Dreamcast wasn't working. When we got this for our DS, we were pleased to find out this was very much like the Dreamcast version of Rayman 2. What I particularly like about this game is the great characters like Rayman, Globox, Ly the fairy, and the Teensies.
Summary: Rayman DS is a very fun game, but it has many downpoints. The controls are a little wierd, and it seems like there is no backlight. The game is also very hard in some levels, but overall it's still a pretty good game.
Summary: i got rayman ds a few weeks ago and its is pretty fun but the graphics aren't that good and the camera angle was real bad at times. I have never played rayman 2 so it is a fun advenature. One more bad thing is the graphics are pretty dark and the bottom screen is unimagitive. overall i think this game is very fun and challenging.
Excerpt: <img src='/> Quote from Game Box 'Defeat the ruthless pirates and rescue Rayman's world!' 'Climb, Fly, Ride, Swim, Water-Ski through 45 amazing environments in full 3D' 'Control Rayman with your thumb on the touch screen' Rayman is on another adventure - this time to save his world from the Pirates.
Conclusion: My first Rayman game and I certainly wasn't let down. The graphics for the DS are amazing but the poor camera angles can sometime let it's superb gameplay down. This game is so addicting and has great gameplay for anyone of any ability. I would definitely recomend buying this to occupy you for hour after hour!
