Any port in a storm?

For those of you who missed out on the PS1/N64 generation of the late 1990s, Rayman was actually quite a big deal. Viewed by many well recognized gaming institutions as one of the ‘Greatest games of all time’, Rayman 2: The Great Escape received many...

Man I was wondering what happened to Rayman and was hoping Ubisoft would make a Wiiware game, but it looks like they will be making a DS game...now I second StarMario22...bring it out already!

I bought this game when it came out. The original is good. I miss platformers like this. So tired of mini games. They need to re-make Rayman!

Allen Reviews Rayman DS.

A port of a good game, is it still good?

I think this game is an early game in the DS's lifespan, I though this would be a good port, but due to the lack of an analogue stick, the controls would probably suck. It's a shame that there is no extra content.

Gameplay 23/25

The gameplay is quite simple really. It's more or less the same from the others.

Controls 11/20

The lack of a joystick on the DS makes this game's controls bad altogether!

Music 12/15

The music is nice, but it is kind of static sounding.

Graphics 6/10

The graphics are like a N64 game...not surprisingly.

Presentation 8/10

Portable Rayman 2...enough said.

Lasting Appeal 10/20

It's rather long, the main adventure will get you around 6-10 hours. Unfortunely, the game only has the main adventure.

Final Score 70/100 7/10

The game is ok, but it could've been a LOT better!
