Good Game, Sticking to Platformer Roots

Rayman is a platformer from a line of other PlayStation Rayman games. Think of Rayman as PlayStation's Mario. This game's story is based on creatures coming from the underworld, and your goal is to rid the land of them, by going through 2D platformer levels. Sticking to 2D platformer levels is the only thing that links it to it's subtitle "Origins".

The game has good graphics, which is pretty easy to do given that it is a platformer. Characters, enemies and objects aren't that big and don't require very much detail, especially since they are 2D.

The game play is pretty good, jumping seems easier than other platformers where pit death is pretty common. This game sports local multi-player, which is a rarity for today's games. With up to 4 player...

The graphics are firmly in the the more cartoonish realm, I'm thinking the frog friend who hangs off ledges with his lip or the purple electoons you rescue who appear to be teeny-bopper grapes with ...

Beautifully Aggravating

Rayman is a character starring in a series of platformers bearing his name. The original “Rayman” was a traditional 2D Platformer that graced the PS1 at a time when nobody cared about 2D Platformers anymore, thanks to the rise of “Super Mario 64” and 3D Platformers. Later ‘Rayman’ titles changed the core gameplay into that of a 3D Platformer to follow the trends, but Rayman himself never found much success. After the mascot wars ended with Mario and Sonic as the sole survivors (and Sonic horribly disfigured), it became nearly impossible to create a new platforming hero out of thin air. The carnage left behind was riddled with the bodies of the fallen: Bonk, Plok, Croc, Vector Man, Jersey Devil, and Rayman, as well as many others. Yet Rayman, the creation of Ubisoft, purveyor o...
