Rayman 3 Hoodlum Havoc:
Introduction: Another Rayman game. This game is the sequel to Rayman 2 The Great Escape. In some ways it is better than Rayman 2 in other ways it is not as good. I'm sure will still enjoy this game though.
The graphics were amazing. From Hoodlums to Globox it is all very detailed and well animated. Globox looks good with his brightly blue colored body and so does Rayman with that little Bandanna around his neck. Andre' looks pretty cool as well and is very detailed. All the level, scenery and areas look quite nice and have a wide range of different environments. As Rayman fires his fists the graphics are good there as well as well as all the jewels Rayman has to collect along the way.
Another Rayman Game with Fantastic Sound. There is a huge range of different music and all the levels have different sounds that suit the area. As Rayman jumps he makes a funny sound. Surprisingly in this game Rayman says a few things! This sounds good as well as different. Murfy is back in this game and makes a few funny comments. His voice really suits him as does Globox's Voice. Andre' and the Hoodlums also make some good sounds as they go aroung the levels. So do all the bosses when you encounter them.
The controls are quite good. There could have been improvements as a lot of the controls are hard to understand and adapt to. But most of the controls are good and will not take to much time to learn. Most of the controls are also in sensible places. Such as the A Button being jump. So the controls are quite good.
Replay Value: 5/10
Yes. You can go back and try and get better scores and cages but that is it. You can also just go back and do it for fun.
This game is quite challenging. There are lots of puzzles you will have to solve as well as adapting to the controls. The enemies will take some practice to defeat and make the game much more challenging. The bosses will also take some practice to defeat.
Rent or Buy?
I would say that you should rent this game first. It is a lot of fun but if you are not a big Rayman fan you might not have as much fun playing it. On the other hand if you are a big Rayman fan then get out there and buy it because it will keep you entertained for ages.
9/10. This is a good game and a lot of fun. It will keep you entertained and is quite challenging. But if you are not a big Rayman fan you should rent this game and try it out before you buy it. Good Luck to you when you get this game.
