I admit it. I have never played the ORIGINAL Rayman games before. The game is suposed to be a re-make of Rayman 2. This is actually a pretty good game! If the graphic were a little better, I'd rate this an 8! Many parts I could not understand, though. I wouldn't recommend this to 5 year olds and below, because some of the Evil character even freaked ME out! Also, This game can be very puzzling, so if you absolutely HATE puzzles, this game isn't right for you. I want to end on a happy note by saying that the game is GREAT for action/adventure gamers!
Now get back to gaming! Get this game and play it NOW! (please?)
I never played Rayman until the 3ds version....
I have seen a lot of bias in the reviews because they've all played it before and on different platforms, well I haven't and if I didnt go for it I would have missed out on one of the greatest platformers created. The environments are vibrant and I love the art design, its timeless.
I am not sure about the 3d, at times I really like it...when barrels fall, jumping etc...with the 3d turned off, the jump in graphics is equally impressive and runs smoother.
I'd never played Rayman before. I can't give a biased review based on this being a port. This game is pretty average. It has its good moments countered with plenty of bad. As for good, if you like platformers, then this is for you. The bad: The camera angles are always wrong and most of the time the camera centering button will tell you it does not work. This is very frustrating. The 3D is terrible. At anything above barely on everything looks blurry. If you're a Rayman fan, then this game is not worth playing. You've seen it all before and there's nothing special about this one. If you're looking for a game to show off your 3DS, this isn't the game for that either. This game is just average. Not worth buying. Maybe worth a rent.
