Summary: When I see critics prasising platform games and they do not speak about Rayman my heart is a little bit hurt. I mean, for it's time Rayman had one of the best controls and enviroments I've ever seen. The characters were cartoony and memorable and even with a bad fighting system, the game was true to it's roots and the pursuit stages are so iconic that they should be right next to Mario Bros.' first stage and Green Hill. Rayman will always be our dark little gem.
Summary: Rayman 2 has a dark atmosphere (too dark for little kids if you ask me) and still a fairy and some minor stereotype scenes. The characters are good, but I don't know why they can't speak normal. But these are relatively insignificant picks and generally I enjoy this game!
Summary: It's one of the best platform game ever created. It has music which is pretty good (especially final boss theme). Boss fights are a bit boring though. Some levels look pretty much the same, but they are still different. Game is pretty easy and can get boring after completing it few times. Every gamer that loves platform games should play this game.
Summary: Beautiful, original art style. Great characters, especially their gibberish languages. Incredible, melodic orchestral soundtrack which ranges from mysterious to triumphal. Creative, varied, and challenging gameplay. Just a brilliant game.
Summary: When I was 9-11, my parents would leave me at the dentist's office to get my braces tuned, and when I got out I'd sit at the Playstation 1 or 2 they had available, this was the only decent game there to play. (My parents never let me have videogames of my own.) Loved this game so much. Bought a PC version a while back to finish the storyline, but the PC version only works on computers up to XP. One day!
Summary: 2013 review: On PC, the 3D platformer has never had a golden age in the same way as on Playstation and N64. There's just something about a gamepad that invites finger-gymnastics and intense focus. The most highly polished N64 games were often exclusives. Mario 64 pioneered many things in 3D gaming, and with the high praise for Rayman 2, one could expect similar exclusivities in this game. But most of this game refines elements from Mario64 and Rare's platformer games.
Summary: My childhood favourite and still one of my favourite games. The world is beautiful and amazing (thanks to Michel Ancel a real genius), the gameplay is smooth and fun, the characters are awesome, and the plot, as a part of the brilliant world of Rayman, is also amazing.
