How is Rayman?

#1hydra_dragonPosted 10/9/2011 7:12:06 PM
I had Rayman Forever on my PC but never did beat it. In one world, the map stopped progressing after a beat a level, and I didn't know what to do. Anyway, I assume this is more or less the same game. The only concern I have is the music. The music is awesome, but this is a DS, so I assume it has been botched. I just hope not on the same level as DKC2 (Advance). So how is Rayman DSi? Also, how is it on the 3DS?

It's decent, but not as awesome as it was when it was first released back in the day. It's a direct port of the Dreamcast version, which was probably the best of the bunch. But again, it's from the first generation of 3D platformers, so you can expect a little choppy gameplay that was common back then. I owned this for N64, but bought it for 3DS mostly for nostalgia reasons. I'd say it's worth a $20 purchase as it will give you a good 8 hours of entertainment.

I won't spoil anything, but there is one sequence near the end of the game that is amazing in 3D. That sequence is a good example of how 3D can actually enhance gameplay.

Its a fine port and its just as good on the 3ds as on the dsi.

Oops, I thought he was talking about Rayman 3D (i.e. Rayman 2). My bad.

cool, looking forward to the end, i'm nearly there (i think). The 3D is superb on rayman. It's worth it just for that.

It's not as botched as I remembered it. Then again, I only played (and died) on the first level as a child with my brother's PlayStation. xD Man, those were the days, along with Porappa the Rapper. <3
I recommend getting it. Great trip down nostalgia lane. c:

I was looking into this game as well. I heard it suffers from bad camera issue, which break the game.
