Product Description

Product Description

Rayman Greatest Hits combines a challenging nonlinear platform style with striking animation. Come face to face with over 50 outrageous creatures in six mind-boggling worlds, in over 30 different levels. Accumulate and put together your skills as you advance, helping Rayman defeat his bizarre enemies, rescue his friends, and restore peace and harmony to the world!

Amazon.com

Many of the games in the budget-priced Greatest Hits series are showing their age, but Rayman's old-school 2-D technology ironically gives it an edge in terms of longevity. This still is one of the most beautiful, fun, and imaginative side-scrolling platform jumping games ever released.

You control the now-famous Rayman, a strange character with no arms or legs (although he has feet and hands) and a propeller on his head. Some may look at this as just another game where players run around and jump all the time, but the charming graphics and incredibly tight controls elevate Rayman into special territory. The difficulty level is just right at the beginning, letting players get a feel for Rayman's basic moves. Later levels require more advanced tricks and precise jumps, but the game is never unfair--something few 2-D side-scrolling games can claim. If you can get past the too-cute graphics and see them for the lush, imaginative visuals they are, the gameplay should keep you hooked for days. --T. Byrl Baker

Pros:

  • Imaginative graphics and smooth animations
  • Tons of levels to explore
Cons:
  • 2-D confines can make things a little dull after hours of play

5.0 out of 5 stars The Classic Rayman! August 30, 2000
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game might be 2D, about 4 years old (This game premeared on Sega Saturn), and the idea is kinda strange, but this is a GREAT game! At first it starts out quite easy (You'll beat the first 5 levels in less than 2 minutes) but soon you're wondering if there is a way to beat the game. Heck, before you know it you'll buy the stratigy guide to try and figure out what to do next. This game has given me more of a challange in gaming than Lara Croft did in Tomb Raider. I highly recomend this game. Now where is a copy for Dreamcast? Huh, Sega?

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Rayman is a classic game released in the Playstation's early years. And it's still a great game!

Gameplay:10/10: Sidescrolling joy! You are Rayman, an armless, legless, neckless thingy, who has to save his world after the evil Mr. Dark takes over it. You will need to free your caged friends in all of the huge worlds to get to Mr. Dark's layer. You also get powers, such as punching, helicopter, and more! You also fight tough bosses like Space Mama!

Challange:10/10: It's HARD! And only 5 continues! But here's a hint: If you have less than 3 continues, press up, down left, and right on the continue screen to get 10 extra continues!

Graphics: 10/10: They are colorful, and I mean COLORFUL! Bright, cartoonlike 2D graphics. The best of the PS's 2D graphics!

Sound: 9/10: It sounds great!

Music: 10/10: I love the music. My favorite tune is the music on certai levels on the Cave of Skops!

So if you have a PS, and are looking for a chalanging sidescroller, look no further!

4.0 out of 5 stars A magical little platformer February 29, 2000

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Rayman's a total trip! Sure, the graphics aren't 3D, but the animation is beautiful! The gameplay is very good as well, with solid control and plenty of fun tasks such as finding captive energy bits and one-ups. If you're a fan of this sort of game, regardless of age, you'll love Rayman! Heck, it's four years old, and I'm STILL playing it!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent but a real challenge November 26, 2001
By nicole
Rayman was our first Playstation game. It kept us entertained (and frustrated at times!) for hours on end. It starts out easy, but it doesn't last for long! The 2nd Rayman was easier and even more fun. You might want to try the Spyro series, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of An Extinct Species. November 4, 2001
By A Customer
The "next generation" systems (Playstation and Sega Saturn) ushered in a new era. With their release, we saw a new type of game we had never seen before. Suddenly, we were able to move freely in 3-D and experience new worlds. Sadly, with this new era of gaming, we also witnessed the end of the genre that had, at one time, ruled the industry; we saw the death of the 2-D platformer. I grew up in the '80's with Mario and friends, and fell in love with the platformer. That is why I must recommend, with all of my heart, Rayman. This is, without a doubt in my mind, the best platform experience I have ever been a part of. I say this because when you play Rayman, you will become immersed in it. The graphics are superb and wonderfully colorful, and they definitely show the best of the dying tradition of hand-drawn, 2-dimensional characters. The control for this game is so tight that Rayman becomes one with you. The music and sound effects are also wonderful and are well-suited to this game's zany atmosphere. The level design is ingenious in this game and the challenge level is very high. It is very challenging, but it is also a game that you will want to experience again and again. I have to wonder why designers simply forgot about the 2-D genre, because with more games like Rayman, it could rule the industry once again. Buy this game and treat yourself to the finest 2-D experience ever created.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic platformer December 26, 2000
By Alex
Rayman is a solid 2D platformer in the vein of Kid Chameleon and other sixteen-bit era jewels, with about a hundred short sublevels divided into five themed worlds. No plot twists here: shatter the six cages of captured Electoons in every level to confront the master villain and save the Great Protoon. The colorful, witty graphics and the action-packed, absorbing gameplay is where the game really shines. The packaging boasts four separate backgrounds running simultaneously. I haven't counted, but it seems true. The sprites are large, colorful, and expressive. What really amazes is the amount of interaction: you may find yourself dodging enemy projectiles, steering a floating berry, and ducking under swinging obstacles, all at the same time. Not to mention the minigames and the numerous hidden items. Rayman is a complete package, warranting at least a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars The game is old, but great! July 2, 2002
A Kid's Review
As Ubi Soft comes up with another game, as we call Rayman, is a game about creatures in a mythical world. The missions are tricky, but fun. Your goal is to free all the neptunes( which are cute little pink animals) or just go ahead and beat the game. As you go on and beat levels, you get powers such as punching for the first one, hanging, swinging on this horse shoe shaped things, running, and flying. It's more challenging to do it the right way which is to free them. The backgrounds and the music are awesome, some are even like your in a forest, and if you close your eyes and listen to the noise, it feels like your in the game. Many people I knew thought it would be better than Mario, but it is! Your talking about a game from 1995! TO those who think are good in games, tis is the one for you. To me it was easy until the next level and the next. My family had a great time trying to beat the levels. My dad, sister, mom and I would work on the game for hours. We were stuck on one level in 1/2 of the game but we beat it. The game has many levels, it's like 2 Mario 64's comined! Well, it's cheap and kills off lots of time! I recommend, I mean demand that you get it, jk! Just try it out!
