Rayman's first adventure, now with added warts

You don’t see a lot of Rayman any more. While technically he has his name on a few prominent Wii minigame compilations, Rayman has since been cast out of his own spinoff series by the Rabbids. But now he’s back, sort of, as Ubisoft has unleashed the...

Yet another remake like Earthworm Jim or possibly a new episode? Maybe even another new 2D entry? Here's hoping. :)

Playing any 3D-Rayman title (though there are 2 only, if you leave out Rayman M) will make you feel unnatural playing Rayman with 2 dimensions.
Please don't screw up like in Rayman 3 on the GBA, Ubisoft.

Rayman 3 on the N-Gage was an absolutely good (not outstanding) game and it's pretty much identical to the GBA version...and going back from 3D Raymen to 2D ones also is no problem at all IMHO...

legochesser, this is not a new game, it's just a port of the original Rayman game.

I never played the original for the PS...is it a worthy enough port or should I just find the PS version?

I actually played the original on the 3DO, not the PS. It rocked and I'm excited to see it back and can't wait to d/l it

So it is the first game again. They did release it on PSN too, so I'd love to see it on VC as well.

I don't think this game is worth its price, maybe it should be turned into 500 points...

I have watched some videos and seen some screenshots of the game. It appears to be quite similar to the version for Windows (which is the one that I have played most often). I only ever recall playing that version and Rayman Advance. Rayman Advance is, perhaps, a tad bit of a disappointment (as far as graphics and sound go), but that is also when pitting it directly against the version for Windows. I am not sure that version can be beat in that aspect, although the DSiWare version certainly appears to be much more similar in terms of graphics and sound than Rayman Advance (though the sounds being lowered an octave or two is kind of odd). I have not played the game on DSiWare (as I do not own a DSi, although I think that I am going to get one soon primarily because of this game and another game) (Bookworm) (http://www.popcap.com/games/dsi/bookworm) (perhaps a couple other games, but I will find that out when I look at the shop itself). Something that would be nice to see is Insaniquarium (http://www.popcap.com/games/insaniquarium/?mid=insaniquarium_pc_en_full) for DSiWare.

I used to love this game on the PS1. Hands up: who thinks this should be a Virtual Console title on the Wii as well?

This is a great port of this game.

Gameplay 24/25

It's classic platforming with troubling enemies, platforms attacking, ete., ete.

Controls 19/20

The controls are simple. Left, right, run, duck, punch, helicopter.

Music 12/15

Some tracks are missing, but most of the best are here.

Graphics 9/10

The look great, no pixilation or static.

Presentation 6/10

It's a port of a popular game, there was a good amount of hype.

Lasting Appeal 17/20

You have to 100% the game to win, it will take a while to win. No replay value, but the game time will probably be 20-25 hours to complete.

Total 87/100 8.7/10

This is a great game underrated by Nintendolife.

+Classic and modern port
+Controls are great
+Rather long (18 levels) for $8
-WAY too hard.
-No extras

When I first got this game, I was like "ahh it looks so good" but after I tried it, I got upset. Too be honest, I'm not going to say it's bad but it isn't great either. A big turn off is how you need to take a picture whenever you want to save of where you left off recently
