    3D effect really, really, really hurts.

    Overall, Rayman 3D is a competent platformer but it's sinfully old. Rather than sprucing it up and developing a truly great re-release, Ubisoft was happy to repackage ancient materials and ship them as new content. If you've played the game already there is very little reason to redo it on the Nintendo 3DS. If you haven't played the original, it's likely too old to be worth your time. However, if playing tragically outdated platformers with more back story than you'll know what to do with is what you're after, Rayman 3DS is your game.

    The original was a classic, but this plattformer is more or less worn out. Ad a bad camera and a lacking sound design, and you have a very forgettable Rayman title.

    Rayman 3D is an uninspiring game with long loading times between every sequence and an awful camera, which makes this a game that shouldn't even had a new version now or five years earlier. I didn't think I would say this, but I miss those hysterical rabbits. They had at least a little charm.

    It says Rayman 3D in the title, but this is actually Rayman 2 with some added 3D effect. Rayman 2 is 12 years old, and it just doesn't hold up anymore, especially not when Ubisoft hasn't even fixed the flaws from the original game. In the end Rayman 3d is nothing but a lazy port, with 3D.

    Not much to say beyond this is the same Rayman 2 we all know and love. Personally i believe it has aged far better than the likes of Mario 64Not much to say beyond this is the same Rayman 2 we all know and love. Personally i believe it has aged far better than the likes of Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie, but I suppose that is merely my own opinion. Whether it is the definitive version of Rayman 2 is debatable. With graphics on par with Rayman Revolution on the PS2 minus the new features Revolution added. It is up to you whether you prefer more features or the ability to play Rayman 2 in what is an adequate use of 3D. All in all this is easily still my favorite platformer from 3 generations ago and it has aged a lot better than some critics may think. Full Review »
