Product Description

Product Description

After a few years in retirement, jumping game giant Rayman returns with a new 3-D adventure game that will keep you hopping through several graphically stunning game environments. Fans of Sonic, Mario, and other cartoon-like jumping games will probably enjoy the familiar gameplay of Rayman 2. While the French-created Rayman character may not be as recognizable as Sonic or Mario, he does bear a distinct animated look that will win over younger gamers. This strange cartoon creation manages to keep it together despite lacking any body limbs to connect its head, hands, and feet.

While younger players will appreciate the cartoon-like 3-D gaming environments, this game promises to challenge experienced gamers with 13 3-D game environments and 45 unique levels.

Amazon.com

Ubi Soft's Rayman character is the Rodney Dangerfield of action-platform characters. While smart, funny, and very hip, the poor little guy just can't get any respect from most gamers. It's hard to see why, as the little guy has starred in some of the finest platformers (both 2-D and 3-D) gaming has seen in some time.

Basically a direct port of the incredible Nintendo 64, PC, and Dreamcast versions, the PlayStation's RayMan 2: The Great Escape has a lot going for it. Great gameplay, amazing visuals, and outstanding sound all combine to make this platform title kick butt. As the Rayman 2: The Great Escape story goes, evil mechanical pirates, led by Razorbeard, have enslaved the inhabitants of Rayman's world. You must help Rayman collect four magical masks to wake up a god who will make those pirates walk the plank.

Rayman 2: The Great Escape is a lot of fun, and as you make your way through the adventure, you must pick up fragments of energy called "lums." Along the way, you will also be required to free cute characters that have been put in cages and enslaved by the evil pirates.

There is plenty of eye candy in Rayman 2: The Great Escape, the upbeat music is a joy to listen to, and the voice work is one of the best parts of the game. The control scheme is very intuitive, which is essential for any platformer. It's very easy to pick up, but even the best gamer will still love mastering the environments.

Rayman 2: The Great Escape is one of the best platform games ever made for the PlayStation. The game is challenging and addictive, and will appeal to gamers of all skill levels. --Todd Mowatt

Pros:

  • Great gameplay options
  • Incredible cartoonlike graphics
  • Realistic character AI and intuitive controls
Cons:
  • Younger gamers may find this game appealing, but perhaps too challenging
  • Gameplay becomes a little monotonous at times

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic type fun!!! September 8, 2000
By mark
Rayman 2 reminded me so much of the old days where games relied mostly on fun. Rayman 2 has all the qualities of an old snes game coupled with great graphics for a playstation game although not nearly as good as the dreamcast versions. Graphics aside, this is truly a fantastic game because the game is just plain old fun to play. Do not, I repeat do not pass up an opportunity to play this game because of the character who is not very well known. Great game!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A spectacular and challenging platformer November 7, 2000
First off, let me tell you that I own the N64 version of this game. I have no idea how different it is from the Playstation version, but you will need a Memory card to save your data. With that aside, the first thing you will notice from watching the story is that the game has excellent graphics(I was using an N64 Expansion Pak so I don't know what it looks like without it). The first level isn't challenging because there is not much to collect, and the level is just there to teach you some tricks. The next level, the Fairy Glade, is where things start packing on. The levels get very challenging, and are very long. You will also get in fights with some Pirates which can be very difficult, especially if you have little life. Soon enough, you will meet up with friends like Clark, the giant muscled friend of yours, but he is very sick after a battle, and you must go back to a part of a pervious level to save him. You will also get to free Globox who freed you and got separated with in the story. Another cool thing about the game is that outside of the text, you will notice the characters don't speak English, or any language for that matter. The gibberish does sound pretty funny though, and it makes the game more realistic. The only true problem I have with this game is the save system, because you have to exit a level to save. This can be especially annoying if you are in the middle of a level and have to turn the N64 off. All in all, the game is a blast, and a game your kids will enjoy, take it from me, I'm only 13 and I love this game. I think adults will also find it fun, because it's just one of those type of games...

4.0 out of 5 stars Rayman 2 ~ The Great Escape September 20, 2004
By Dyrou
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A pleasant platform experience from the best of your dreams...

Plot:

Pirate robots have invaded Rayman's rain forest world, and destroyed its core. It is your job to gather the fragments of that core and restore it. All of the villains and most of the locales are pirate-themed.

Graphics:

This game was released on both the N64 & PSX. The N64 version supported the expansion pack, so the graphics looked much smoother and better quality than on PSX. The severely polygonal, retrograde graphics in the PSX version are terribly disappointing.

Otherwise, the graphics are something you might make up in one of your fondest dreams, and there is extreme attention to detail, in lighting and shadowing, like little fire flies flitting about and what-have-you. The water even looks nice and ripply, like you can see every ripple.

Machines are depicted in all of their smoke-spewing, oil-dripping horror, every grate made to look like a set of prison bars...of course, it is all supposed to be from a rain forest inhabitant's perspective.

Sound:

Dreamy and foreboding environments are backed with appropriate music. Most of the music is ambient, battle themes are reasonably upbeat, and they squeeze some chillin' jazz in there, too.

Voiceovers are done in whatever selection you make, English, French, or German. The French voice-overs are the best, and as a matter of fact, they are backed by English subtitles on the N64 version, by default.

Again, the sound quality is MUCH better on the N64 version than on the PSX version.

Gameplay:

Pretty simple, you have your walk, run, jump, hover jump...you attack by shooting or throwing spheres of light, Dragon Ball Z style...

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock it with Rayman! December 10, 2000
By A Customer
I tried this game at a friends house, and it is great! I sometimes have trouble with ajustining the camera angle to focus right, though. This game has the same great 3-d graphics as any Croc or Spyro games. Rayman2 is probably harder than either of these games, however, it is just as exciting and chalanging as either one, if not more so. Definatly reccomended!

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is exellent, graphics-wise. In fact, it could easily be mistaken for a Playstation 2 title. The controls are very simple, involving few buttons. Most of the gameplay of this platform Mario/Sonic the Hedgehog game is very easy to get into and get used to and there are many visual pleasures to look at while working through the various levels. While not as simple as titles in the Crash Bandicoot series (which are overall more satisfying), this PSOne title has a helluva lot going for it.

First, the positives. There is never really a time in this game when the graphics and visuals really disappoint, even to PS2 and X-Box/Gamecube/PC folks. Of most PSOne games, it seems the creators of this really squeezed the BEST graphic possibilities of the Playstation One within this. The controls are extremely simple and oftentimes boil down to 2 or 3 buttons really, along with a sometimes heavy dose of D-Pad button-thumbkilling masher functions. There are also many levels in several comprehensive sections that should keep the platform gamer happy for a long time.

All of that being said, there are a couple of BIG downsides. The first and foremost is the SAVE feature. Throughout the various levels, one must COMPLETE the entire section/level BEFORE being able to SAVE. This becomes a major problem because within the various stages of the game, there are several mini-sections which MUST be completed before one is allowed to proceed to the next level. Therefore, one oftentimes finds that one has completed several sections of a given level, only to be thrown back (upon incompletion) to the very beginning of that level.
