It's guaranteed to please fans of the series and platform jumping devotees of all stripes; so hang onto your beanie, give the propeller a spin, and let's take a detailed look at the latest offering from the folks at Ubi Soft!
Excerpt: The graphics in the various versions of Rayman 2 have always been lush, and Rayman 2: Revolution is no different. Each level of the game pops with tons of different colours, more than most platformers have in their entire repertoire. The forests are lush, the bays cool and blue, and the caves dank -- in a lively sort of way. Unfortunately, this graphical prowess seems to come at a price -- the game chugs frighteningly often on the PS2.
Conclusion: The game play is stable and really fun – like most well done games you easily lose track of time and forget that you're playing. To combat the disorientation that can easily happen in 3D games, included is the ability to target enemies so that you stay facing your enemy but are able to move completely around the target or back away from them while still being able to defend yourself. My only complaint with the game falls into the area of camera mechanics.
Excerpt: Rayman is and always will be one of the most recognized videogame characters. It's not daily when you see a limbless character running around colorful areas, and getting rid of nasty enemies. Rayman is certainly the most unique videogame mascot ever, screw the fat plumber, enough with the hedgehog, and no more bandicoots. A limbless hero is all we need.
