Conclusion: It is apparent that Ubi Soft is taking the Rayman license for every dime it is worth and I am sorry to say that they came up really short this time. Every now and then there is a game of this genre that works but those times come very few and rare, this is not the case with Rayman Arena. The game is as deep as a child’s baby pool and does nothing to try and grab the gamer’s attention.
Excerpt: The bread and butter of console gaming has always been the mascot-driven platform game. Nintendo has Mario, Sega has Sonic, and Ubi Soft has Rayman, the armless little guy who's appeared in a few different platform games for quite a few different platforms. The other all-too-common practice for these mascots is to spin them out of the action genre and put them into a rough-and-tumble driving game.
