If you've already bought this title for the Dreamcast, Nintendo 64, or PlayStation, don't despair: the makers have added all-new levels and have improved the gameplay from previous versions. For those who haven't played Rayman 2, you're in luck! After a few years in retirement, jumping-game giant Rayman returns in this 3-D adventure game that will keep you hopping through several graphically stunning game environments. Fans of Sonic, Mario, and other cartoonlike 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 the lack of any body limbs to connect his head, hands, and feet.
Five years ago, the 3-D platform genre was exciting, as titles like Crash Bandicoot and Mario 64 ruled the console roost. Since then, we have seen the 3-D platform genre fill out with a few copycats and some outright stinkers. However, there have been a few classics in the intervening years, such as Banjo-Tooie, and now Rayman 2: Revolution can join the club.
Like past installments, Rayman 2: Revolution borrows gameplay elements from a variety of different sources, but they are sources worth borrowing from. Several elements from Rayman 2: The Great Escape have been pilfered, including a similar story line. Revolution has a good combination of beautiful graphics, great controls, and enhanced gameplay. This will astound both hard-core gamers and those new to the hobby. There is enough puzzle solving, lever pulling, item collecting, and platform jumping to keep even the most ardent platform enthusiast busy for quite some time.
The pirate Admiral Razorbeard and his army of robots have enslaved the planet, and it's your job in Revolution to help Rayman search for pieces of the Primordial Core and summon Polokus to get rid of the robotic pirates. The levels are even the same as they were in The Great Escape, although there have been some slight changes made to the order in which they appear. Due to the power of the PS2 and the detail put into reworking the levels for the game, they look spectacular. Ubi Soft has mixed old-school gameplay with graphics power, and those ingredients mixed together make this game a must-play for gamers of all ages.
Despite the borrowed elements from The Great Escape, Revolution for the PS2 offers up plenty of new things that will make the hearts of platform gamers skip a beat, just like when they first played Mario 64 or Crash Bandicoot. It looks like this time, Rayman will finally get the respect he deserves. --Todd Mowatt
