Excerpt: I recall having a go at Rayman on the Playstation and thought the game seemed familiar when I began playing "Rayman 2 - The Great Escape", the main difference being that on the N64 he speaks gibberish and they show subtitles whereas on the Playstation it's English he speaks.
Pros: Fun worlds, lots of levels, likeable character
Excerpt: Rayman. The little being with a head, two hands, two feet and a ball. Ever successful on the previous playsation games, Ubi soft decided to give Nintendo fans a share of the action. Many Ninty fans felt they got their fare share from this exciting platformer.
Excerpt: Rayman 2 is a colorful 3D platform game. It contains no extreme violence, no geysers of blood, no official license from Smith & Wesson, and no foul language - in short, it's not what currently passes for "mature" and "edgy" in interactive entertainment.
Excerpt: The original Rayman featured rich colors and an attention to visual detail that set it apart from its competition in the 2D side-scrolling platform genre. Rayman 2 takes the same lush aesthetic and successfully transforms it into a seamless 3D world.
Excerpt: I bought this product about a month ago because I had played the demo on PC, and thought it was good. You start off in a prison ship thinking that all is lost when your friend Globox comes onto the ship and is thrown in the same cell as Rayman.
Excerpt: Rayman 2 is the best game that has ever hit the N64. The graphics are unparralled even by an unexpanded machine! The game is huuuuuge and the sound is dynamic. It's very difficult to put how good the game is into words, because it's impossible!
