    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.

    3D effect really, really, really hurts.

    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.

    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.

    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 However, if playing tragically outdated platformers with more back story than you'll know what to do with is what you're after, Rayman 3DS is your game.

    Rayman 3D is well Rayman 2. The question that needs to be asked is if this can be called the definitive version. While Rayman 3D has a neat 3DRayman 3D is well Rayman 2. The question that needs to be asked is if this can be called the definitive version. While Rayman 3D has a neat 3D effect and works really great with the button set not much sets it apart from it's predecessors and this doesn't mean the game is a complete traversty because Rayman 2 was a fantastic game for it's time and still is. However the aging visuals and the aging gameplay mechanics kept here cannot be forgiven. Rayman 3D doesn't fix any of the problems of it's predecessors but keeps them exactly intact. The Camera angles are awful, some of the game like camera control should have been implemented on to a basically useless bottom screen within this game. Rayman 2 is a classic however this port of a classic merely adds a 3D tint.
