Rayman 2follows in the footsteps ofMario 64andBanjo-Kazooieas another classic 3-D action game for the Nintendo 64. Rayman, who is strangely huge in France, is a strange yellow creature with hands and feet that are magically connected to his body by invisible appendages. This odd character can glide like a helicopter and throw his fists around as well as jump, climb, and swim. As in any decent action jumping game, Rayman meets up with many friends and enemies on his quest. Your mission is to rescue hostages held by the vile Robo-Pirates.

The game has an odd cinematic feel to it--perhaps due to its widescreen presentation and cutscenes. A cute feature is the design of the characters, who speak in their own forms of cute gibberish. Graphically, this game is rich with deep dark colors spread out over 50 levels and 20 worlds. Hiding in these levels are colored "lums" that can be used to open up new worlds or to restore Rayman's energy. These come in handy when you want to breathe underwater for long periods of time. Rayman must also collect magic masks and crystals, among other goodies. --Robb Guido

Although a lot of people liked this game I hated it. For one thing this game was WAAAAYYYYYY too easy (I beat this game in three days playing only 1 hour a day! The first game had me playing for mounths! )! You're supposed to find this fairy to give you all your powers back, and yet you start the game with all your powers! Plus I don't care how good the graphics are, Rayman does NOT look good in 3D and does not belong in 3D! So get the first game, I don't recomend this game to ANYONE! And you know …
