The Tradgity That Is "Rayman 2: The Great Escape."

  • Sep 12, 2000

Now let me tell you straight that Rayman is one of the best games I have ever played! With wonderous worlds, challenging levels, and memorable charicters make it a game to be hold! That where Rayman 2 comes in. Gone are all the great stuff I mentioned above, clearly a fatele mistake on Ubi Soft's part. We have none of the returning cast (Except for Rayman of course), choppy 3D graphics (A lot of the graphics look like they were painted on the game), and very little challenge makes this a tradgity! I've had this game for little over three days and have unlocked all the secrets AND beat the game!!! The first had me playing for months. And when I was finished with it I shed a tear of joy and said: "Now THAT was a game!" I'm still wondering how this can be called a sequal, it's terrible! I'm truly offended by this game! All those who praise this game have probibly never played the first game! I beg of all those who read this reveiw, please play the first game first to see what Rayman truly has to offer you! This game is just a wasted game. I hope Ubi Soft wises up with Rayman 3 or I'll just have to shelf the game as "A game that got killed, when turned to 3D." Boo, hoo!!!

About this topic


Charming, colorful, and suitable for the entire family, UbiSoft's platform action gameRayman 2: The Great Escapeshould immediately remind players of classic console games such asSuper Mario 64andCrash Bandicoot. Despite its cartoonish appearance,Rayman 2isn't simply a child's game; its addictive, "just one more level" game play should please fans of all ages.

Players assume control of Rayman, a seemingly magical creature, complete with head, body, arms, and legs but lacking all the connecting parts in between. Over the course of 40 levels, Rayman searches for four masks to help conquer the nefarious Admiral Razorbeard, who is currently in control of Rayman's peaceful world. One of Rayman 2's most endearing qualities is the number of unique (and extremely humorous) characters you meet during the adventure; Rayman 2 crafts an engaging story around its well-designed game play and gorgeous 3-D graphics engine.

Game play consists of traversing dozens of diverse locations, including swamps, temples, pirate ships, and grasslands. Along the way, Rayman collects brightly colored "Lums," which can restore health, replenish air supply (when underwater), provide access to secret areas, and save the game position (like most console games, Rayman 2 only lets you save at certain points). The dynamic levels consist of standard running, jumping, and climbing sections, but also include spectacularly animated action sequences such as water skiing, rafting, and flying.
